Our home

Ours is a detached house, built in stone just over a hundred yards ago. It has recently been very creatively re-modelled and now provides a wonderful living space, with polished wood floors, rugs and comfortable furnishings everywhere. The kitchen has just been extended and features a gas-fired Aga (plus electric hobs), and plenty of cooking space which opens into the dining room.

Its a very warm, cosy welcoming house with great views and a large terraced garden which provides a lot of privacy and is a great space for barbeques and outdoor eating.

Who we are

  1. My wife Lynn and I have lived in the North East for over 30 years. We're both retired now, with plenty of friends locally who are around to help if needed. We also spend much of the summer in the US with Lynn's family, so a house exchange need not be simultaneous.

    I've had a varied career in agriculture and television and we jointly owned a plant nursery which we recently sold. Lynn has worked at Newcastle University and as a computer software consultant. I now spend a lot of time in my wood workshop, and indeed, I've made several pieces of furniture around the house.

    We're open to exchanges offers anywhere in the world, and we promise to take excellent care of your home!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are within easy walking distance of the centre of Hexham, which is a busy rural town with good shops, a farmers market and a 600 year-old Abbey. Nearby are award winning pubs and restaurants, and we are well placed to explore the North East corner of England, with its historic castles, cathedrals and especially Hadrian's Wall.

Nearby is Newcastle, with excellent shopping, art galleries and night life. The ancient university town of Durham is an easy drive, and the spectacular Northumberland Coast is well worth exploring - this is Britain's 'Secret Kingdom'

There are plenty of good walks and bike rides within easy reach of our house, and for a longer stay, we are close to the English Lake District. No-one leaves our part of the world disappointed!
