David, who used to work in business development for a shop-fitting company, said: “I never dreamed I’d be able to give up my job as well, but the business just grew so fast, we didn’t appreciate we could be so successful.

“You’ve got to really enjoy it because you have strangers arriving in your home every day.

“We get some great people here and we’ve never had a problem, all our customers have been great.”

The couple say they have had a wide range of guests including location scouts with the film industry, bishops, professional musicians and even someone who stayed for two years.
