Our home

We have a lovely, ten year old three bedroom detached house set in a rural village about 20 miles from Plymouth in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The house has two double bedrooms with double bed in each. The third bedroom is set out as a study but could accomodate a single bed. Downstairs there is a lounge, separate dining room, kitchen and laundry. There is also a conservatory and a small sunny garden with open views across the village playing field. We have central heating and a gas fire in living room. Carpeting throughout and smartly decorated and furnished. In addition, we have a second home in Southern Spain. This is a 2 bed apartment close to beaches, a beautiful Spanish resort, with lots to see and do. If you wish, you could do a 2 centre swap, as you can fly from Cornwall to Spain with minimal driving at either end.

Who we are

  1. We are Ray and Juliette, in our fifties, and running a small production company, producing corporate films and dvd's. We have a son, Toby, who is married to a Japanese girl, Hikari and they live in Setagaya-ku with their baby son Hyuga. We'd love to be able to visit them regularly, at least once a year, for an extended stay of 2-4 weeks each time. But its so expensive to stay in hotels and if we could find a house swap that would be ideal. We have a daughter Verity, who is at Bristol University and it is possible that she may want to accompany us, hence the need for 2 bedrooms. We are open to any offers or suggestions and are flexible on dates and length of stay.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The village is small but with good amenities - social club, village school, village green, local college, church and post office. Set in the Tamar Valley in area of outstanding natural beauty. We are about half an hour from Plymouth, half an hour from Dartmoor, half an hour from Bodmin Moor. The beaches of the north and south coast are each about forty minutes drive away. There are lots of beautiful walks in this area too. You also have the option to use our holiday home in Southern Spain - a 2 bedroom apartment with pool virtually on the best beach of the Costa Blanca - miles of deserted golden sands. The small town of Guardamar del Segura is a five minute drive away. We have bicycles here as the area is flat and perfect for long cycle rides in the countryside or along the beach. There are flights available to Alicante (about half an hour drive) from Newquay. Usually very cheap fares too.
