= marks the location of this home
Aylesbeare is a quiet village 8 miles outside of Exeter, and 3 miles from Exeter regional airport. There is a village pub and church, and a twice daily bus service to Exeter. It has the feel of being very much in the countryside, whilst being easily accessible for Exeter and the nearby beaches of Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth, both of which are a 20 minute drive away. The Jurassic Coast and Dartmoor are also close by.
Something about ourselves
We are a professional couple, with 3 lovely daughters. We are active as a family, enjoying running, cycling, swimming and horse riding. We have done a house swap before, which was very successful, together with house swapping with members of our family most summers!
