I am married, with one daughter and a beautiful dog called Bailey. I was born and lived in Portugal, but came to England in 1977 to find work, and have been here ever since! During that time I have worked in some of the best hotels in the UK, such as Gravetye Manor in West Sussex, and Tylney Hall in Hampshire. My role was always Food & Beverage based, usually overseeing the management of both the Restaurant and Banqueting departments in large and prestigious hotels.

It was during the late 1980's that I started working with my two Co-Owners, which finally led to acquiring Rowton Castle in October 1997.

My 35+ years experience in our industry leave me fully equipped to be involved in all key strategic decisions, along with completing continual ongoing market research of our industry and competitors.  However my key, most enjoyable role is showing couples our beautiful castle as a potential venue for their future wedding.
