Rex has owned and run two restaurants in Vancouver and Ruth takes food as seriously as her passion for design and architecture, so you can be sure that your tummy is in good hands (so to speak). Treats to which you just cain’t say no are put out for tea and left by the bedside, and unusual and very wonderful breakfasts spring forth like rabbits from a hat: fennel croustadine with wild fiddlehead greens, fillets of trout with sea asparagus and lovage marinade for example.....

.... They look fabulous and taste better, and Ruth somehow manages to find time for a chat too…. and she has her own interior design practice. The house is traditional and, not surprisingly, very stylish and comfortable, with masses of room in which to be sociable or to sit quietly, either under the apple tree in the garden, in the sunroom, or by the fire in the sitting room. You will, however, have to share the run of the place with the resident Scottish terrier, Tosh. There is a theme here; with an English mother and a Scottish father, Rex is rather fond of a certain island across the pond – and Ruth was born in Switzerland which might account for her natural facility with languages.
