Property features

Who we are

  1. I have just retired and my husband is still working. I have worked as a social worker and have been very involved with voluntary organisations particularly in the mental health field. My latest work was in an advice centre.
    This flat is available most dates apart from New Year and a week in November. We would like to spend some time in London near family and would want to be in or near Kennington. A week would be minimum desired stay. This could be in school breaks but any dates could suit.
    We actually live in Ayr on the West Coast and could offer holiday swap here. We have a cottage recently refurbished in the garden of our family home so any dates do for that.
    If a swap were abroad the desired stay would probably need to be longer possibly 2 week minimum but all options considered.

There is a park nearby at Princes St Gardens.There is generally lots on for children of all ages.Edinburgh is very compact so that amenities are easy to access, for instance the Commonwealth Pool which has lots of water "extras" and a soft play facility is within easy access.
