Who we are

  1. Simon and I are keen outdoor enthusiasts who have down sized our work commitments in education inorder to indulge our passion for independent travel. We have recently returned from a 6 month cycle tour of NZ and enjoyed the benefits of 3 house exchanges.
    Simon is a keen mountain runner and both would like to enter a local run / triathlon.
    They are keen gardeners / vegetarians / cooks and grow most of their vegetables and enjoy entertaining guests from abroad. We are currently looking for exchanges in school holidays and are also interested in weekend exchanges through-out the UK. Preferably in areas with good cycling, would particularly like a place in central London to watch the GB leg of the Tour de France (July 6-8th)

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our beautifully restored cottage is in the historic town of Ironbridge which is now a world heritage site. The museums are some of the best in the country and in walking distance. We are near lovely Shropshire hills and countryside brilliant for walking and cycling and of course have bikes (many) that could be used in an exchange. We are close to Wales, and its two hours twenty to London by train. We are near the lovely towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow. Stratford upon Avon is 1hr 30 drive.
