Our home is comfortable, clean, and spacious. We have a 3 bedroom, 2 storey brick home which is set at the foot of Pendle Hill and walking distance from the shops and pubs in Clitheroe town centre. Our home is newly decorated and also has a a brand new kitchen and laundry. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, there is a second family bathroom and a separate WC on the ground floor. Our home has a good sized garden with fruit trees and a little pond with fish.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a retired couple in our sixties with two grown up children. Our daughter and her husband live in Sydney, Australia and are expecting a baby hence our desire to home swap with someone living in Sydney, ideally in the Sutherland Shire region.

    We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to spend some time in Australia - and allow someone to explore and fall in love with the beautiful English countryside. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in the UK.

    We enjoy travelling, music, walking and exploring the Lake District and the Ribble Valley, cold beers in country pubs and golf (well one of us likes golf anyway!)

    We are very proud of our home and take good care of and promise we will take very good care of any home we swap with.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is in the small, pretty market town of Clitheroe. Clitheroe is an hour from the beautiful Lake District (http://www.lakedistrict.gov.uk), home of Lake Windermere, Beatrix Potter, wonderful country pubs and sunning hiking, mountain biking and sailing. Only 45 minutes drive from Howarth, the home of the Bronte sisters, Manchester and Liverpool and 3.5 hours from London this really is a wonderful part of the world.

The ancient market town of Clitheroe in the Ribble Valley (http://www.visitribblevalley.co.uk) is a perfect place to stay for visitors wishing to explore Lancashire’s Forest of Bowland, one of England’s 36 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Clitheroe actually dates back to Saxon times so by the time the imposing 12th century Norman Castle that towers over the town had been built, Clitheroe had already been around for nearly 1,000 years! Clitheroe Castle, said to be the smallest Norman castle in England, is now home to a Museum and 16 acres of landscaped gardens, which houses attractions to appeal to every age group. They include a bandstand, children’s playground, skate-park and Lancashire’s first Labyrinth. The Rose Garden also features quirky metal and limestone sculptures.

One of four Circular Walks that take you around the town and surrounding countryside leaves from the Castle – pick up a leaflet from the Visitor’s Centre for directions. Sporting fans might want to enjoy a day at Clitheroe Golf Club, one of the country's best inland courses.

Clitheroe is well known for its plethora of specialist shops. Award-winning Byrnes Wine Shop is famous for its enormous underground cellar bursting with unusual vintages from all over the world. Cowman’s Famous Sausage Shop sells more than 75 sausage varieties while the Exchange Coffee Company stocks more than 35 coffees and 60 specialist teas.
