Your Hosts

Welcome. We are your hosts, Nathan and Laura Kurton, and we completely understand how valuable your vacation with your loved ones is.

Nathan and Laura

We have spent the past 10 years working on high-end, luxury charter yachts, where our guests’ happiness has always been our focus.

We look forward to welcoming you to Well Cottage, and providing the most unforgettable and perfect vacation here in the English countryside.

Both born and raised in England, we have vast knowledge and a love for the nature and history of England and we want to share its beauty and hidden secrets with you.

Our History

When we met in 2008, we quickly realised that we were perfect for each other. Sharing very similar childhoods, interests and goals, we were inseparable.

We married in the summer of 2010 in our home town, just outside the beautiful Roman city of Bath, and soon after changed our lives to pursue our dream; to live and work on the ocean.

We flew to the Caribbean and after a whirlwind of events we landed our first position as captain and chef on a beautiful sailing catamaran. It was such a perfect job for us that we continued in the industry growing from strength to strength. In that time we have gained vast experience in hospitality, customer service and the ability to provide vacations and holidays tailored to the exact needs of our guests.

Throughout our career we have been very fortunate to have sailed many parts of the world including the Caribbean and the Mediterranean and we have entertained thousands of people along the way, many of whom are still friends of ours today. We decided to return to our beautiful homeland for a new adventure and continue doing what we love, sharing our love for life, England and entertaining! And so English Cottage Vacation was born.
