Rita and Colin Patterson have lived here for a generation or so. Rita is the inspiration and driving force behind the "Mumbiessence" range of natural soap and skin care products which are made and sold on the premises. Colin is a geologist by vocation; retired but does a bit of consulting, builds a few web sites and does the building and maintenance around the place. He can also dig holes and lift heavy things!

Rita and Colin

We've "stayed around" a bit in the South-West, trying to experience a range of accommodation that the region has to offer, making note of all the things we liked and disliked in the hope of bringing the best to our own guests. The "likes" usually included attention to details and the little extras that made us feel special (we've included most of these in the base tariffs and tried to limit the add-ons to things that not everone wants). There were a surprising number of dislikes, especially at some of the tariffs involved; we've eliminated all that we can remember.

We both look forward to sharing with you everything that "Mumbles" has to offer.

Col & Rita's page has a bit more about us, some fun and some of Colin's blogs.
