Meet The Author
I own a small vacation rental management company, Big House Holiday Lets, in the UK. Our 8 houses are similar: sleep 20+ people and all are located in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley . When I'm not getting bookings for my clients I can usually be found making Cider (and winning prizes...) at Cleeve Orchard Cider and Perry at my home in Ross on Wye.
