Stephen is the Estate Manager and manages the day to day running of the valley, carrying out the decisions made by the directors at the board meetings. This includes overseeing all staff, contractors and forestry operations. He is a good decision maker and problem solver. His favourite part of the valley is the heather hills.
In his spare time, Stephen loves to go fly fishing or shooting. He is a black belt in karate and was British Heavyweight Champion when Catherine first met him in 2001, and still teaches twice per week - his children love to go with him to this. Stephen is keen on all sport, particularly rugby. He helps coach Liam's rugby team and take him to all rugby matches and some karate competitions. He is also fantasic with horses which is how he and Catherine met.
The College Valley is run and managed on a day-today basis by a team of brilliant individuals who collectively act as one unit for the benefit of guests, tenants, wildlife and the valley as a whole.
