Our home

Our home is a beautiful three-storey Victorian house very near the centre of Cambridge. It has a large kitchen and dining room, which opens fuly onto a large covered deck & garden. There are two large reception rooms, one set as a playroom/snug, the other is a large living room with open fireplace. There are six lovely bedrooms and with so many beds, we can sleep up to nine people. It is a lovely airy & light family home that I am sure you will love & enjoy, with open fireplaces and stripped wooden floors throughout.

For the IT minded, there is broadband wireless network through the house and possible use of a computer. We have a private road (unheard of in these parts) , plenty of safe parking, large garage with room to store bikes, prams etc and lovely south-facing garden for bbq’s and evenings on the deck, etc.

Our neighbourhood is lovely for walks and jaunts, we have friendly (not nosy) neighbours and whilst there is plenty to do right on the doorstep, our home still offers peace & quiet from the hustle & bustle. We have family nearby who can help with any info you may need & a family-owned punting company where you can take a boat out on the River.

Come and enjoy CAMBRIDGE at its best! ! !

Who we are

  1. We are a young fun professional family with three children, aged between 7 - 3 years old. My husband owns an IT training & development company and I am a writer & housewife. We love to travel and have spent time living in Costa Rica & Spain as a family. Our children are friendly & respectful. Like us, they enjoy new places and people. We also have a friendly black rabbit called Prince & a labradoode called Dulcie who can either be included in the swap (fun for the kids, for all the cuddles etc, & for those trips out to the woods & parks) or they can be looked after by our friends.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Cambridge is a university city of old streets, ancient colleges and lovely bridges spanning the River Cam. Cambridge is a City of contrasts, with a variety of enticing things to see and do and places to visit, from the historical University buildings, the museums & galleries to the shops, cinemas and multitude of restaurants & bars.

Very close to our home we have a Leisure area that includes cinemas, bowling, restaurants and an arts venue, called The Junction which offers a programme of live music, club events, comedy, theatre, dance, live art and digital art through its digital studio. We also have many parks close by for children to play, picnics, walks and quiet times. There is the famous River Cam for punting,
(www. puntingincambridge. com) and the Norfolk coast is only an hour away. We are minutes from Cambridge’s Railway which can get you to London in just 45 minutes. Cambridge is only second to London for tourists visiting each year and can be a difficult place to find nice and inexpensive accommodation. A home exchange with us can offer a unique opportunity to stay in a beautiful English home in an amazing city.
