Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our home is a 50 year old, 4 bedroom, former farmhouse surrounded by fields and with far-reaching views, even though we are only just outside the market town of Frome, and half an hour's drive from Bath Spa. We have a half acre (2000 sq. metres)sunny garden with shrubs, trees, two ponds, greenhouse and lots of seating. Inside are polished wooden floors with rugs, and comfortable sofas and large windows looking out to the fields and hills beyond. The sitting room has a wood-burner to supplement the central heating and is very cosy in winter. We have a flat screen TV in the sitting room. In the day/dining room is our main dining table and also comfortable chairs looking out on the garden and the view beyond. The kitchen is a good size, and was updated in September 2011 with new oven,hob and extractor fan, a central island and freestanding units combined with fitted cupboards. We have an office on the ground floor as well as a conservatory both of which look out on the large back garden and formal pond and fountain. At the end of the garden is the vegetable patch and wildlife pond and an arbour to sit and relax.

= marks the location of this home
We are half a mile (1km)outside the historic market town of Frome http://www.frome-tc.gov.uk and only fifteen miles (23km) from the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath Spa http://visitbath.co.uk . Frome has deservedly become more of a tourist site in recent years, dating back as it does to the Middle Ages, its old buildings complemented by interesting shops and art galleries, and excellent coffee shops.
Something about ourselves
We are Willm and Judy, in our mid-sixties and now both retired from work in health and research. We have lived in Frome for twenty-seven years and so know the area well. We have found that previous exchangers enjoy it too.
