Our home

We live in a large charming cottage with spacious kitchen/dining room looking out onto a medium sized pretty enclosed garden. We have a further 2 reception rooms both with open fires (if needed) and lovely wooden floors. We have four bedrooms (2 ensuite) with an additional large family bathroom. The bedrooms have one twin, one double, one family (i.e. double plus single ensuite, with baby grand piano!) plus another double ensuite. I am an interior designer and hope a family would find it a comfortable and pleasant place to stay.

Who we are

  1. I live with my husband Phil 52 and daughter Sophie 20 Phil is an air conditioning contracts manager and Sophie a student at Nottingham Trent University training to be a teacher and i am an interior designer but currently also run a small BB from our home - you can see more about us on the Homepage, although of course there will be no one stopping when we exchange. We have just returned from our first house swap to Queensland and it was absolutely fabulous! Our house swappers were made very welcome in our little village - in fact the local pub put on a leaving party!! We've cetainly got the bug. Now looking to go somewhere hot this summer open to offers. Life is short and we are looking to live for the day and we would treat anyone's home with as much care and respect as we would our own home. Our village is extremely friendly and our friends and neighbours would be on hand for help and advice if needed.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a beautiful English village and are situated in the centre of a conservation area opposite the church and village inn. We are ideally situated and surrounded by idyllic countryside. A 5 minute drive takes you to the famous Hall Cross Hall spa in a Stately Home. The market towns of Burton-on-Trent, Lichfield with its spectacular cathedral, Tutury Castle and Uttoxeter racecourse are less than 30 minutes away. An hour's drive takes you to Birmingham, Stoke with its potteries, Sherwood Forest, the home of Robin Hood. Chatsworth House and Shrugborough Hall, not to mention Alton Towers, arguably the best theme park in the country. The peak district with Dovedale and Tissington trail again is only about 30 minutes away, along with the famous Belfry golf course. A two hours train journey will take you to London or the glorious Yorkshire dales.
