Meet Us

Sue is a retired teacher and Peter a retired IT project manager. We bought the property in 2002 to use as a holiday home with our three children and then retire to when the time came. We part made the move in April 2014 and mover here permanently in January 2015. During the first few years of ownership, we renovated the house we live in now and the Gite for renting out. Since retiring we spend our time, renovating and landscaping the gardens around us as well as running the Gite.

"Two Hoots is a lovely place with friendly and welcoming hosts. We only had one night and we all wished we had more time to enjoy Peter and Sue's lovely home! It's in a beautiful area and the house itself is lovely, spacious and clean."

"Just a single night stopover at two hoots and our host could not have been more helpful. We took advantage of them providing our evening meal which was excellent and made for a fantastic evening. The accommodation was really lovely, only wish we could have stayed longer. 5 star rating from us."
