Our home

We have a modern detached 4 bedroomed home, very clean and comfortably equipped, situated in a pleasant, crime free area with really nice neighbours. The kitchen is large. 3 of the bedrooms are 'doubles and the 4th is smaller. A study houses the computer and a TV whilst the lounge has a 32 inch flat screen TV with full Sky service and a superb stereo hi fi system with about 250 wide ranging music CDs. The garden is small but well kept and secluded and is great for sitting out on the patio or lawn enjoying the gas barbecue. We have one bike you would be welcome to use and our daughter, who lives nearby would, if asked nicely, loan you hers.

Who we are

  1. We are retired. John was a senior detective at New Scotland Yard while Stella raised our family of 3 daughters. Our interests now include regular golf, rambling, reading, music and designing crosswords and other types of word puzzles. Why not take a look at John's website? ( Stella leads a full life helping out the local Darby & Joan club and is Secretary of an Active Retirement Association nearby. We also enjoy dining out and spoiling our grandchildren, some of whom live nearby. When the children were young we had 7 very successful house swaps and made many friends. In 2008 we had a great swap in New Zealand and last year we had a perfectly lovely exchange in Holland. This year, we are off to Vancouver for 3 weks.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Kings Hill is a new 'village' of modern homes and has been described as the wealthiest area for miles around. (That does not include us!) It is located about 20 miles outside London to the south east within easy reach of the countryside with castles and stately homes all around us. An 18 hole Championship golf couse is two minutes away by car as is a huge fully equipped gymnasium with indoor and outdoor pools and tennis courts, sauna and steam room. A nearby train station has a regular service to London's West End or the Kent Coast and Canterbury. We are also about 45 minutes from the Eurotunnel which has a frequent service to Calais, France. We'd be interested in a swap anywhere in Europe, but only for about 3 weeks during 2011.
