We would like a friendly and outgoing person who will provide companionship and will give me the opportunity to leave the house for a few hours for shopping etc. He loves listening to music, mostly jazz and blues, and enjoys watching comedy on tv.
If living in you will not need a car but if living out a car is essential, as our home is not served by public transport.

The house is a beautiful, spacious and comfortable home in a rural location, set in private grounds shared with 6 other houses (so although the location is very rural, we are not isolated).

There is private access for swimming in the river that runs alongside the house.
