Who we are

  1. Peter and I are both artists, we also teach at the University. We have three grown up children who have now all left home which gives us the freedom to travel more. We are in our early sixties and love to visit different countries and experience the cultural diversity.
    Sometimes we would love to bring various members of our family with us if this is agreeable.
    The second home we have listed is in Hexham, Northumberland and is owned by our son Theo and his partner Fiona and their two children, Theo is a sculptor and is currently working on his PHD at Sunderland University while Fiona is a primary school teacher. They have two children a daughter aged 8 and a son aged 6. Their house swaps are in school holiday times only but they are interested in travelling all over Europe and North America.
