My wife, Philippa and I come from SE England and currently live near Tenterden in Kent and enjoy all the benefits of living in the countryside. Philippa was an Optometrist and enjoyed working in her profession in a clinical role for many years. I was a Store Manager for a well known retailer for 30 years which I thoroughly enjoyed. We have both now made the brave decision to change our careers to concentrate on volunteering work and we’ve never looked back. We are definitely both drawn to rural properties and having viewed 22 properties in France back in 2004, when we viewed Ty Menhir, we both knew it was perfect for what we were looking for – our own enjoyment plus letting it out for others to also enjoy.
We come over to stay at the house at least 4 times a year both to maintain the house & gardens and also to enjoy what Cotes D’armor has to offer.
Over the years, we’ve added the 4th bedroom with en-suite and outdoor pool. Oh and not forgetting the shutters on day 1 of owning the property after a hasty visit to the ‘Marie’ (townhall) to check we didn’t need permission!
