Your Hosts at Abbeyfield B&B

Hi! I’m Anita, your host at Abbeyfield B&B. I moved into Abbeyfield at the end of 2019 with my partner David and our daughter. Before that we lived in Cambridge, where I worked as a translator and David as a musician.

I grew up in Denmark, but have spent all of my adult life in England. In fact, I was strangely drawn to England from a very early age. I remember reading my favourite childhood books, The Famous Five, over and over, not for the plots which I already knew but because I loved the atmosphere! I am also a big Agatha Christie fan, which I’m sure influenced our move to Torquay.

David is not involved with the day to day running of the B&B; he still works as a musician and as a database provider for football video games. But he helps me out with lots of things like shopping and repairs – and he’s written a special Abbeyfield musical theme for me!
