Our house is a detached brick-built two storey house with a large kitchen/dining/lounge area overlooking the patio and private back garden, and a comfortable TV room at the front. The master bedroom is en suite with a super-king-size bed and fitted wardrobes. There is also a separate bathroom upstairs and a downstairs toilet and utility room. There are two more large bedrooms and a study with broadband WiFi internet.

The house overlooks farmland both front and back and a series of quiet public footpaths through woodlands and fields are accessible from the front door. We love the house and have lived here for over thirty years since our daughter was a baby. It's been the perfect location for bringing-up our children, in the countryside yet within easy reach of the city centre. Our village, Scholes, is one of a string of small villages in an arc round the north east of Leeds, and each has their own distinct character with pubs, coffee shops, old churches and a network of walking trails. Scholes is a twenty minute drive into Leeds city centre, close to bus routes and ten minutes by car from a suburban railway station.

Leeds is a thriving, modern city with a great range of shops and amenities: all the big department stores and the latest state-of-the-art shopping centre (Trinity); old Victorian theatres like the Grand contrasting with the brand new Leeds Arena; and a huge range of restaurants suiting every taste. Leeds is in Yorkshire, winner of the European Tourist Destination Award 2013. It is surrounded by three beautiful National Parks - the North York Moors, Peak District, and of course the famous Yorkshire Dales (Haworth/Wuthering Heights) and is an easy drive to the Lake District (Beatrix Potter/Wordsworth). It is on the main east coast railway line: 2 hours to London, 3 hours to Edinburgh, and just twenty minutes to the ancient Roman/Viking city of York. The motorway network is a 15 minute drive, with the M1 south to London, the A1M north to Durham and Newcastle, and the M62 west to Manchester, Chester, Liverpool and Wales. The east coast holiday resorts like Scarborough and Whitby are also very accessible. Leeds of course has its own international airport (twenty minutes drive from the house)with international flights to 50 European destinations (Paris 1.5 hours, Rome 3 hours)and domestic services to London, Dublin etc..

My wife and I are both aged 64, married with two grown-up children and one grandson. We are retired teachers, although we also own a language school in Leeds where English is taught to international students. We were very keen on sport - skiing, tennis etc..but age seems to be catching up on us and more recently we limit our activities to walking, reading, chasing after our grandson, and going on holiday! We love travelling and have been to many places in the world. We have a house in southern Spain, in the mountains near Ronda, Andalucia, which we visit a lot especially in July and August. A non-simultaneous swap with our house in Leeds would be possible. Currently our son is working in Sydney and it will be our fifth trip to Australia next year.
