About Lisa Beames
I am happily married with 3 children and 2 grandchildren. I am a retired primary school teacher and my husband Fin and I now work in the travel industry and love to show people our beautiful country. We live on a beef cattle farm which is close to the surrounding beaches. We both love travelling, cycling, crafts and our beautiful country garden which is bursting with many fragrant roses and shrubs. Our life’s motto is 'you’re dead a long time, so make the most of every day'.

Recently stayed as s family of 5, lovely quaint cottage in very tranquil surroundings.
Had a very enjoyable stay, with a master bed to die for. Lisa the host is very accomodating and informative making our time a very pleasant experience.
