Our home

Our house is very comfortable, has a beautiful garden and is located in a very quiet cul-de-sac and backs onto fields. Downstairs there is a very large kitchen with all mod cons including dishwasher, tumble dryer and American style fridge freezer. Additionally there is a large open plan living area including a large living room, dining room and conservatory which overlooks our large, secluded garden.

There is a downstairs toilet and a study which can be also used as an additional bedroom, in which is a good quality double sofa bed.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms. A Master bedroom with king size bed, a double bedroom, a large bedroom with Bunk Beds and a fourth bedroom which has a cot.

The bathroom has a large powerful shower as well as a free standing bath.

We have three young children and therefore the house is very child friendly.

We have a private driveway that holds two cars.

Who we are

  1. We are Dan and Nicola, a married couple in our late thirties with three young children aged 6 and 4 and our new baby girl. We are both professionals (web designer and educational psychologist) and enjoy travelling when we get the chance. We completed our first house exchange in 2014 and really enjoyed the experience.
    Our children have enjoyed travelling with us and have benefited hugely from these experiences. We enjoy both walks in the countryside and experiencing London life including its theatres and restaurants. We love the outdoors and also enjoy sailing when we get the opportunity.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a quiet street which is a short walk to the small town of Coulsdon which has excellent shops, a bakers, butchers and several good restaurants. There are two train stations in the town which have fast connections to London - approximately 25 minutes to London Bridge or London Victoria station. You can be in Covent Garden or Leicester Square within 50 minutes of leaving our house.

The local countryside is very beautiful and is only a few minutes drive away. There are many wonderful walks to take in the local area and some excellent Country Pubs to have a drink or a meal.

We are less than 10 mins drive to the M25 motorway and approx. 20 minutes from Gatwick airport by car or direct train.

If you are a golf enthusiast then you will not be disappointed, we are surrounded by 8 beautiful golf courses, the closest being a stones throw away from the house.

We are approximately 60 minutes drive from Brighton and the wonderful South coast, which is also easy to get to by train.
