About Jacqui Wood

Mark and Jacqui welcome you to their home: Mark, a retired police officer, who trudged the streets of London for 30 years upholding the strong arm of the law and Jacqui, who has spent the last 23 years, working in the hustle and bustle of Heathrow Airport. We decided to look for something different, away from the busy treadmill of life in England. We bought our house with attached barn in June 2011, and have now renovated all the rooms in the house as well as the attached barn, which we now live in We've tried to decorate and modernise the house in keeping with it's natural old world, farm house type charm, whilst still providing the modern conveniences which make people feel comfortable.

Jacqui Wood purchased this house in 2011
