Our home

Sadly this year : 2015 we cannot commit to to an exchange in the summer as our boys are likely to have their own holidays and may well need the house.
Valley House dates back to 17th century, though well extended and recently modernised to a high standard.It has solar power and a ground source heat pump. It sits within 5 tranquil acres of unspoiled countryside: a peaceful setting complete with streams, ponds and terrace.
We are a family with 2 boys aged 19 and 17 years with plenty of experience of exchanging homes, all very successfully.
The home is suitable for families with older children (over 8 years) as there is something for all, including above ground pool 10m X 5m, trampoline, table tennis, satelitte TV and DVD, playstation and XBox and piano.
In the summer the house is adorned with hanging baskets and pots of plants which we would like your help watering to keep it looking lovely. By July the vegetable plot will have a selection of fruit and vedge for you to enjoy. Our friendly cats would require feeding and is no trouble. At present there are 1chicken who needs daily corn feeds and will lay tasty eggs each day for you.They are enclosed by a safety fence so no trouble.

Who we are

  1. We are John and Esther both professionals, a GP(retired) and Psychotherapist and our 2 well behaved boys aged 19 and 17 years old are active and sporty. (Rugby and cricket are the passions of the males in the household) We love exploring new areas and absorbing new cultures.

    Families with very small children might find it difficult here due to the stream and ponds which are no longer child proof.

    We can offer our Ford SMaxx People Carrier or Toyota Yaris in exchange for yours.
    We are not interested in staying in appartments or holiday properties as experience has shown us that we prefer to have a garden or be in close proximity to the sea or a private pool. An exchange with families who have similar aged children also is best but not essential.
