A wise man once said that work was like being somewhere when you rather be somewhere else. With those thoughts ringing in our ears we decided to take the plunge, hand in our notices at work and head to Kirkby Stephen for our new life in the Old Croft House.
We moved here on July 13th 2011 and haven’t looked back since. Its been a big change from our old lives in Leamington but we’ve loved the challenge and the opportunity to turn what were previously hobbies into parts of our working day – baking our own bread, making jam, baking cakes and preparing our home cooked evening meals.
Living here has also allowed us to spend time exploring the surrounding area on foot and by bicycle and we’ll be happy to point you in the right direction for one of Nicks (shorter) or Rachels (much much longer) walks.
We’re compiling a blog, “Nick & Rachel’s News” to let you know what we’ve been up to and hopefully to give you some ideas for when you visit us.

    I do hope to be able to visit sooner rather than later. The Old Croft House seems so charming and the idea of home baked goods , well – sounds delicious. Of course, I believe I have familial connections, so the search would be interesting.
