The Cotswolds and the surrounding areas have been and always will be, home. There is a certain charm that I’ve never quite been able to pinpoint, maybe it’s the abundance of picture perfect villages, the vibrant market towns or simply the unspoilt countryside that stretches for miles on end. Whatever it may be, I feel privileged to be here.
Having previously worked for one of the largest high end corporate agents, I felt it was time to spend more time focusing on my clients to provide them with a more bespoke service, rather than the transactional focus of high street agency. Combining my knowledge and passion for the equine industry into my business allows me to utilise my network and experience with the aim of adding real value for my clients.
Having worked within the Equestrian Industry for many years including travel to Europe and further afield with Team GB horses, my knowledge, experience and network ensure that I am well placed to provide accurate and knowledgeable advice for equestrian homes.
Whether it be an equestrian home, that picture perfect Cotswold cottage or a classic Cotswold home, you will deal with myself, your personal property advisor who will take care of all your property needs.

What happens if I refuse to give your Company my personal data?
The information about you that we have collected for the performance of our contracts is required in order for us to successfully fulfil our obligations to you. If you choose not to provide the personal data requested, we will not be able to enter into a contract with you to provide the benefits we offer. If we are already processing your personal information under a contract, you must end our contractual relationship (as/where permitted) in order to exercise some of your rights. We process some personal information as part of a contractual relationship with a Data Controller. Any requests to restrict this type of processing should be forwarded to the Data Controller; they will be responsible for discussing your concerns and making any decisions.
What are your Company’s ‘legitimate interests’?
Legitimate interests are a flexible basis upon which the law permits the processing of an individual’s personal data. To determine whether we have a legitimate interest in processing your data, we balance the needs and benefits to us against the risks and benefits for you of us processing your data. This balancing is performed as objectively as possible by our Data Protection Lead. You are able to object to our processing and we shall consider the extent to which this affects whether we have a legitimate interest. If you would like to find out more about our legitimate interests, please contact us via email.
How Long will Your Personal Data be Kept?
Our Company holds different categories of personal data for different periods of time. Wherever possible, we will endeavour to minimise the amount of personal data that we hold.
- If ‘consent’ is the basis for our lawful processing of your data, we will retain your data so long as both the purpose for which it was collected, and your consent, are still valid. We review the status of your consent every twelve (12) months and treat non-response to our requests for renewal of consent as if they were your request to withdraw consent. Occasionally, we might identify a legitimate interest in retaining some of your personal data that has been obtained by consent. If we do, we will inform you that we intend to retain it under these conditions and identify he interest specifically.
- If we process your data on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’, we will retain your data for so long as the purpose for which it is processed remains active. We review the status of our legitimate interests every twelve (12) months and will update this notice whenever we determine that either a legitimate interest no longer exists or that a new one has been found.
- All categories of personal data that are held by us because they are essential for the performance of a contract, will be held for a period of six years, as determined by reference to the Limitations Act 1980, for the purposes of exercising or defending legal claims.
