Hobbies and Interests
I like countryside activities like walking, cycling, orienteering.
In Darwen, there are many live music venues, and I also take advantage of the 45-minute rail link to Manchester for the theatre and music scene.
I play tennis, and spend time relaxing in our large garden which backs onto moorland,
It's a large, bright room with two windows, one of which overlooks open countryside. It has a desk, tv and wifi
Excursions and Local Attractions
Local countryside walks, museums, shopping, music events, theatre and cinema.
Countless cultural and sporting events possible in Manchester- a short train ride away from home.
