Who we are

  1. We are a family of 4 with 2 children, a girl age 12 & boy age 15. We are both designers/artists.
    We have studios on either side of the house. We have both taught in the past & ran a popular art gallery for 7 years in the town. We moved from London 17 years ago. We have had 30+ great home exchanges. We love home exchanging & the different perspective it gives travel experiences & the friends we have made in the process. We enjoy ski holidays, France, Italy & Spain particularly Majorca & new places in the UK. Theri grew up in Dorset & we return there as a family often. We love Bristol & Bath. We used to live in Clapham & have family in London & we like to go back as often as possible. Always open to travel suggestions or offers!! We have an interesting terraced garden which has won a 'BALI' award, full of great tropical plants & places to unwind. As we have 2 holiday lets we are familiar with meeting visitors from all over the world & maintaining our holiday lets to a particular standard for our visitors & as a family treating things with care & respect.
    We would also like to see more of the UK & happy to go close to home Dorset, Avon or Cornwall.
    We are dreaming about a trip to New York...A SKI APARTMENT EXCHANGE WOULD BE GREAT!
    We have a Springer Spaniel so do now welcome exchanges where we could bring our dog. She can be confined to a Utility/Kitchen area with no access to other areas of the house. We can also find care for her while we are away. Our dog is confined to the ground floor & dogs are welcome to use the same facilities in our home. In 2016 we added a beautiful friendly cat to our family. She is very home based so comes with our house...

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Dartmouth is a stunningly picturesque, un spoilt & character-full town on the South coast of Devon. After nearly 10 years we still love exploring the many winding streets & absorbing all the colorful historical houses & architectural details. There are breathtaking walks, award winning beaches, lots of cosy pubs, river trips, historical houses like Agatha Christie's Greenway or Colleton Fishacre, wonderful day trips with great waterside restaurants like the Winking Prawn in Salcombe or the Anchorstone in Dittasham & many great spots where no matter your age it is fun to drop a crab line & see how quickly you can fill a a bucket! All of which make this a very popular destination.
We live in a tranquil street 5 - 10 minutes walk from the center of the historic & port of Dartmouth with its unique shops & top restaurants. Situated on the south facing side of a valley over the town which presents spectacular views of town & countryside & just 10 minutes from award winning beaches. National trust & English heritage properties, boat trips, crabbing, steam trains, stunning walks means there is always something to do. Dartmoor national park is a short drive. There is a full range of sporting, water sport & tourist activities to do in this very popular town & surrounding area of outstanding natural beauty.
