He has lived in Wantage, Oxfordshire since 1970. The extensive grounds to the house now contain many fine specimen trees that he has planted over the years. In 2002 his first wife died, since when he has married Dr Hilkka Helevuo. They have demolished the old house, replacing it with a substantial Finnish log-house to their own design. They now spend part of the year on Giles's boat in the Bahamas and surrounding waters, and part in Hilkka's summerhouse on an idyllic lake in eastern Finland, but whenever in Wantage Giles continues his consultancy work.
