Would you like to spend Christmas in an English country village?

Alone this Christmas, looking to meet interesting people?

Snoopy and I would like to invite 5 interesting CS'ers, to our home for a CS festive experience. We live in a 200 year old converted stone barn in a charming small country village only 100Km from London. Arrive on Christmas eve and join us for a village 'at home' drinks n mix soirée, hosted by us for friends in the village. Choice of 2 local pubs for drinks and then maybe onto the church for midnight carols. Christmas day and Boxing day can be what we want but the main focus will be on good food, drink, swapping of stories and exploring the local area with Snoppy. Stay 2 or 3 nights, leaving with new life long friends and another amazing CS experience to talk about.

Read my profile, see if we would gel and if you would like to join us send me a "Couch Request". I'm looking to gather a mixed group of interesting people from different cultures each with something to offer the group, for a party with a difference. Tell me why you think you should be invited and what you can bring to the party!
I've hosted magicians, chefs, musicians and even a girl with a moustache! So I know there are some amazing people out there, I hope some of you would like to spend Christmas with us.

If this is not for you, fine. Thanks for reading, but maybe a friend fits the bill, pass the message on, make someone happy!

Christmas greetings to all the CS family.

Steve & Snoopy.

What a brilliant idea! I would have sent in my application to join the party, but I'll be with my family, and I don't think you'd want 15 of us (plus 4 dogs) :-).
Come and visit in Devon sometime if you'd like though, and bring a paraglider.
Happy Christmas.

Hi there,
Last years christmas event was a great success with 5 random CS'ers coming together for a wonderful 3 days at my home. The questions are:-
SHOULD I DO IT AGAIN?
WILL IT BE AS GOOD A SECOND TIME?
SHOULD I GO VISIT SOMEONE ELSE?

Answers please....

PS. Harriet and Moth, who replied on here last year, came and spent New Years with us - another great experience!
