Our home

Lynda(74)nd Guy (83) own this beautiful bungalow which is situated just outside of the City of Cambridge near to the Imperial War Museum in Duxford. The village is small and has a rural atmosphere with three local pubs that serve excellent food and real beers. Duxford is within 20 minutes of the famous University City of Cambridge with its many old Colleges and the famous college "Backs" on the River Cam. There are many local amenities including museums,art galleries a theatre and cinemas. Close by there are National Trust and English Heritage Stately Homes and a fast rail link to London from the local train station(45 minutes to London). The nearest airport is Stansted which is 30 minutes away by car on the M11 motorwayor a quick train journey away .If you are interested in sports Cambridge has many golf courses, swimming pools, tennis courts and numerous health clubs. Supermarkets are quite close by and there are farmer's markets in Cambridge, Saffron Walden and Shelford. The bus into town leaves from the village . We are considerate and tidy people and will care for any other person's home as we care for our own houses.

Who we are

  1. We are retired and love travelling. Our previous holidays have been to Argentina, Peru and the Galapagos, Australia Canada and Alaska and more recently two months with exchanges in New Zealand in February and March 2013 and Australia 2014, plus exchanges in South Africa in February 2017. We like good food and have an interest in wine appreciation . We also enjoy golf, cycling and going to our exercise classes locally. We have six grandchildren between us and have now become friends with some of our home exchangers from New Zealand.
    We have a second home in France so non simultaneous exchanges are possible and our Duxford home is available during the summer months from June- October.

  2. We love art and culture and we belong to the U3a in the Pyrenees Orientales France where we have our second home which could be possible for a home exchange as well.

  3. We love visiting vineyards and enjoy eating out in local restaurants whenever we are abroad - We are also sun lovers so warm places suit us in the UK winter months
