= marks the location of this home
We live in a quiet street in the desirable south side of Harrogate, England's premier spa town in the north. We are five minutes' walk from a huge open park and ten minutes' walk from the middle of town. Harrogate is a holiday town - a major shopping centre, with many upmarket restaurants, clubs, parks, health centres (the famous Turkish baths), cinema, theatre, and sports facilities. From Harrogate there is easy access to moors -beautiful walking in wild and unspoilt North Yorkshire, coast, major cities (Leeds, Manchester, York, Newcastle) heritage sites.
Something about ourselves
We are a family of six - Guy and Ruth, with four children aged between 15 and 9. I am a vicar (pastor) at St Mark's Church, Harrogate and Ruth is a chaplain at Harrogate Ladies' College. We enjoy reading, walking, cinema, eating and cooking, music and friends. We haven't done an exchange before, but are keen to share our lovely home - better to have it used and to see parts of the world from a more domestic angle!
