I grew up on a farm in Devon, where my mother ran her own B&B – so my experience starts early! I moved to London as a young adult and worked a number of different jobs, from bloodstock broking in Lloyds of London to residential letting for Hamptons. Following an intense 15 years in the digital sector, I spent a decade as a freelance photographer before settling in Edinburgh where I ran a successful B&B while raising my children. It was during this time that I had the idea to create Private House Stays.

Private House Stays was born directly of my own experience, and the frustration I felt with the percentage of profits handed over to third party sites. This lost revenue felt unavoidable as the big companies held all the power. I founded Private House Stays to combat this inequality I saw was rampant in the tourism industry.
