Our home

Our home is modern, comfortable, clean, light and spacious. Originally a 2-bedroom bungalow we converted the loft with additional 2 bedrooms and shower/bathroom. Both the ground floor and top floor have stunning views over the local countryside, the house is secluded with a large garden to the front and rear and enclosed by fences and trees. We have neighbours to one side, but fields to the back, side and front as a result you will often see wild rabbits playing around, deer and birds. Our home is very warm but also has fans in the bedrooms and living area. We have exchanged over 7 times now and every family, both couples and those with younger and older children, have enjoyed their time here with MANY things to do and places to visit.

We have three grown up children who may, or may not, accompany us on holidays. Both Tony and I have travelled a lot before marrying, I lived with my parents in Africa and Hong kong, and worked in Saudi Arabia and America as a flight attendant before 'settling down'; Tony did VSO in Papua, New Guinea. We have taken part in 8 house exchanges and love this type of holiday. We are conscientious in the care of your home and would look after it as we do our own.

Your neighbourhood

Devon is one of the counties in the South West of England - a popular tourist destinaation. You are never far from the sea and our nearest seaside/costal are is Lyme Regis (8 miles away) - part of the Jurassic coast and recently adopted as a world heritage site. We are close to many activities/tourist sites. Nearby is the city of Exeter (45 minutes) and large town of Taunton (25 minutes), Stonehenge (1 1/2 hours drive), London 2 1/2 hour drive), Cornwall (1 - 2 hours drive depending on which part), Eden Project (1 1/2 hour). For teenagers there is Woodlands water park, Crealey for younger to junior age childre to mention just 2 places. Although rural, we are 3 miles from 2 small towns which both have a number of large supermarkets open 7 days a week as well as local shops. You do need a car to stay here, but there is a main line railway station in one of the towns. There are many local restaurants and pubs, several within walking distance.
