Our home

Our home is a 3 bedroom, traditional red sandstone, terraced home on two levels. (circa 1919). The lounge has a 40" 3D TV with a multi fuel burning stove. The room is comfortable and tastefully furnished. We have a large, open plan kitchen/ sitting room with t.v and c.d docking system. We both enjoy to cook and entertain friends therefore the kitchen has plenty of cookery books, kitchen appliances etc. The sitting room opens out onto an enclosed garden from patio doors. There is a table and chairs, barbecue, chimney and a large enclosed trampoline and grassed area in the back garden. We have a shed at the bottom of the garden where there are bikes which we would be happy for you to use.

Upstairs we have a bathroom with shower and 3 double bedrooms. The main bedroom has a king size bed and plenty of storage. The girls bedroom has 2 single beds and our son's room has a queen size bed.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 5. We are both in our mid 40's and work in local government. We have two girls aged 8 years and 12 years and a 16 year old boy. We therefore have the usual paraphanelia that children tend to have at those ages, XBox, 2 TV plenty of books, toys. Cd's etc. and hi speed wifi. We also have a miniature schnauzer, Molly who would be looked after while we are on holiday.

    We have never done a house swap before and would love to try it. We could make our car available (an old, but reliable 7 seater). We have camping equipment if you wanted to attempt camping in Scotland (watch out for the midgie!) and would look forward to helping you make your trip here as enjoyable as possible.

    As we have school aged children we would have to swap within the school holidays. Our available dates would be the first 2 weeks of July or first 2 weeks of August.

    We could also consider a long weekend end of September or a week during the school holidays in October.
