We live in a modern and very comfortable home which has four good sized bedrooms which can sleep 8 in total. 2 of the bedrooms are doubles (both have en-suite bathrooms), 1 twin and one single bed with a bed/chair. There are 4 bathrooms (including en-suites) one of which is downstairs.

We have a comfortable lounge with a large TV and sky television and a large dining room which will easily seat 10 people and has patio doors out to the garden.

The house is clean modern light and friendly with every amenity you could wish for.

We have a small but very pretty and sunny garden which has outside seating with plently of private parking space at the front of the house.

Property features

Who we are

  1. David(49) and I (Helen 41) have been married since 2004 and we have lived here with our son Robert (12) and our au pair since 2001.

    We have 1 dog (Merry a 2 year old chocolate labrador) and Lizzie (an 18 year old tabby cat). We can have the cat and dog cared for elsewhere unless you have similar needs.

    We absolutely love our home and know that you will feel the same. We have wonderful neighbours who will welcome you to the area.

    David works in IT for a local bridal company and I am a lawyer working in Nottingham.

    Rob is a very bright and articulate young man who is perhaps a little spoilt - so has his own sky box in his room, his own computer , play station etc etc.

    We are both really keen on IT and gadgets and so these are all over the house - including the kitchen which has a breadmaker, food processor, juicer, ice cream maker, coffee machine and every thing that you can think of (probably!!).

    We are very friendly open people, we have had au pairs since 2003 and have really loved sharing our home with people of other cultures and backgrounds.

    This will be our first house exchange and we hope to do this in 2008 if possible. We can provide personal and work references if you like. I am happy to swap cars if that would be OK with you. You don't NEED to drive in Grantham but it does make it easier if you wanted to travel a little further in the UK.

    Convenient airports are East Midlands and London Stansted (which has a rail link).

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a small and friendly cul-de-sac (which means very little traffic as there is no exit at the end of the road).

We live 5 minutes walk away from the town which is a small market town and our neighbours are all really friendly. The area is quiet and secluded.

Grantham is on the main east coast rail line and so London is only just over 1 hour away by train and you can easily visit Nottingham(famous for Robin Hood) (30 minutes by car), Lincoln (30 mintutes by car) York (1 hour by train) to name but a few.

York and Lincoln are beautiful Roman cities with much to see and do. You will no doubt know all there is to do in London - but from Grantham you can easily take day trips or theatre trips to London without the expense of staying there.

Grantham is a small and safe market town with farmers markets every month, good shops, a local cinema, leisure centre and good rail and road networks. The A1 which is a major road linking the North and South of the Country is only 3 miles away from us.
