Our home

We can offer a very flexible situation. (Non sim. exch. easily possible). Our 3 brm home is modern and spacious with separate large sunny fully self contained 2 brm room apartment (sleeps 3 or 4) above garage and workshop. Fully equipped kitchen, lounge with TV, lounge suite, two divan beds - all bedding stored underneath. Brm 1 has super king sized bed. Brm 2 currently set up as playroom has one bed - has room for another. This means we can host visitors at any time. We often have family/friends using this area so change furniture to suit. The apartment is has its own separate entrance (with 16 stairs) at the rear of the building . There is internal access from the main house but a lockable door makes the two dwellings independent. Aprtmt has an automatic washing machine, vanity unit, laundry tub and shower in one room. Separate toilet with handbasin. Rotary clothesline in the garden, dryer in the garage below the apartment. If we are in residence we can enjoy helping you explore our beautiful country. Lovely garden, patios and BBQ areas to enjoy.Depending on season you can pick ripe fruit from the trees or pluck fresh greens from small productive garden.
Our travelling companions have delightful 2 bedroom hilltop cottage ( close to city centre). Their home is light & airy, with all day sun and appealing views towards the estuary the bay,and hills. So a simultaneous exchange can be made for visitors to stay there if they wish, while we are travelling.
