St. James’ Park is a beautiful little corner of Bulgaria, where we have the pleasure of enjoying a simple life.

Have you ever been on a bus or a train in a strange country, probably going from one interesting city to another and watched the villages go by?

Have you ever wondered what goes on in those little villages? Who lives there? How do they live? What happens on a daily basis?

Maybe you’ve just thought about getting off the beaten track and seeing the inside of a country.

Its been more than 10 years since my mother Kathy and I first came to Bulgaria just to check it out. We fell in love with this house immediately and so began the story of St. James’ Park, Voditsa. Named after the home of Newcastle United, the football team of our hometown in England. We have a wonderful life in this village and we’re happy to share it with you through this website.
