Our home

We have a detached house in Maidenhead which is 6 miles from Windsor, 8 miles from Henley and 30 miles west of London. In the house there are 2 sitting rooms, open plan dining and kitchen, downstairs toilet, 2 double bedrooms, one with ensuite, and 2 single bedrooms and a family bathroom. There are two private gardens which are very sunny with outdoor tables and seating. The house is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac and is only a 10 minute walk from the station and the town centre.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a retired couple with two grown up children and four grandchildren. I used to be a French teacher and Tony, my husband, was an electronics engineer. We started house exchanging about 15 years ago and had 5 successful exchanges in New Zealand, New York and Spain. We haven't done any swaps for a number of years now and would like to start again because we found it so much fun.

  2. We both love cycling and have recently bought ourselves some electric bikes which are just great! It means we can explore further afield. We also like walking, socialising, going to the theatre, cinema and museums. I also like playing badminton and I make costumes for a local amateur dramatic group in Maidenhead where we live.
