Our home

We live in a three bedroomed terraced house although currently one of the bedrooms is set up as an office. We have a double bedroom and a slightly smaller room which sleeps our daughter who is six. We live in Surrey in the Greater London area. We are 20 mins by train to Waterloo (from Surbiton) and also easily accessible to Heathrow Airport which is about 25 minutes drive away. Gatwick airport is about 40 minutes away. We are also very close to Hampton Court Palace and Royal parks, Sandown race course as well as the Surrey countryside. The seaside resort of Brighton is an hour's drive away. We can offer the use of our car as an exchange. There are a number of National Trust properties within a half hour's drive as well as very good shopping in the nearby town of Kingston upon Thames. It also offers a theatre as does Richmond which is the next town along the River Thames. There are boat rides along the Thames as well as private boat hire.

We live in Thames Ditton which is situated on the Thames river and is a quaint English village with pubs, restaurants and small shops. I am a studying and looking after the home at the moment and my partner works from home designing websites. Our kitchen is new and fairly spacious and we have a downstairs dining room/sitting room. There is a small garden with a trampoline suitable for children.
