Our home

We have a large comfortable home with character. The house has amazing views over the local hills and with its high ceilings and large windows is spacious, light and peaceful. There are four large bedrooms, a study with free wifi, playroom/dining room, sitting room (with double sofa bed), living room, and family kitchen-dining room. There is a separate laundry room, two bathrooms and front and rear gardens, with BBQ area. Car exchange is also possible and desired. If you need any help finding your way around, our parents live nearby and we have local doctors as friends in an emergency. All rooms are child-friendly, and we have plenty of toys and family games/Wii in case of a rainy day. We love to share our home with our guests and will respect your home in the same way. Exchanging has proved to be a revelation for us !

Who we are

  1. We are a young professional family (senior consultant and speech therapist) with three children (12,14,15) and have lived here for eleven happy years. We are keen to explore new destinations with the children, where sun, sea and lots of history is close by - plus the kids are always encouraging us to try new activities, languages and good food ... we have had several very successful exchanges, and we see this as a fabulous way to explore and make new friends, plus share our love of Moffat with others - hope you like it as much as we do ! Please get in contact early if you can so we can give you any extra help and information and to ensure all is in place to make sure your stay is perfect ...

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Situated on the edge of the beautiful little town of Moffat (http://www.visitmoffat.co.uk), we are spoiled with local colour and flavours. River walks, hill walks, cycling, cosy pubs and restaurants are all on the doorstep. Moffat is surrounded by hills, yet is only one hour from the dynamic and historic cities of Edinburgh (home of Harry Potter) and Glasgow. The quaint market towns of Kelso, Hexham and Selkirk are also within 1 hour, and the landmark Hadrian's Wall even closer. We are also only 1 hour from the beautiful Lake District, home of Beatrix Potter. The Moffat community harks back to the good old days of a bygone era - local businesses supported by local people, with excellent market days, a Summer Festival of Walking, Gala week, local fishing, boating lake, several play parks, tennis courts, a challenging local golf course and welcoming pubs serving dishes prepared with local Buccleuch lamb and salmon. The community is very friendly and welcoming and is well-used to visitors. Nearby Broughton brewery produces its own real ales for those that like to sample local produce in a glass ! Sandy, child friendly beaches are 45 mins drive away, along with sailing and windsurfing at Kippford. This is a serene peaceful spot, with wonderful views and walks. The perfect base for exploring some of the most fantastic cities and countryside the UK has to offer. We love it !
