Our home

We live in a beautiful quiet old fashioned English village in the middle of the Lincolnshire Countryside. We have a 4 bedroom farmhouse with paddock and stables and two horses Poppy and Tarquin. Two fluffy Bernese Mountain dogs Bisto and Banjo and three chickens..Waffles, Millie and Kentucky! So fresh eggs everyday. The dogs won't be there, but the horses and chickens will. We have a lovely lady called Mel who takes care of both unless you want to.

There are beautiful countryside walks on our doorstep, bike riding (welcome to use our bikes) and the beach is a half hour drive away. You can get the train to London from Retford and be there in 1.5hrs. Manchester, Liverpool are 2 hours drive and Scotland about 5 hours.
Local airports are: Birmingham, East Midlands, Humberside but lots of people fly into London or Manchester and then drive.

We have done three house swaps, two more successful than the one but you live and you learn and now we are pretty clear on setting expectations from the start!

We have 3 large double bedrooms and one single bedroom, Living room, kitchen, Office, Tack/Utility Room with washer and dryer, space for muddy wellies.and two bathrooms. Our home is full of character and is warm and welcoming.

The whole house has central heating throughout as well as two fireplaces and double glazing. Private driveway that would and huge garden. We are surrounded by fields where you can watch race horses who are our neighbours on one side or rabbits who are our neighbours on the other. We see rare white owls in the evening and hedgehogs.

We love short breaks away. Are usually drawn to somewhere warm near the beach or a pool. In the winter months we look for skiing destinations too. Also love Southern England, Somerset, Cornwall etc. We love Australia.We love an adventure so please do approach us. You never know!

Who we are

  1. I am a single mum with a 6 year old daughter, 9 year old son. I work from home as a Sales Manager for a large American company.

    I previously lived in New York for 15 years and both my children and I are well travelled and well behaved.

    We are sun and water fanatics! So close to the beach and/or pool are huge for us.

    Exchanges are usually best organised around school holidays.

    We respect our own home, appreciate the love and attention to detail that goes into a beautiful family house and would show the same care for yours. We always get ideas for our own home from seeing other peoples, which is lovely. We have done three exchanges to France, Australia and Israel.

    We have two fluffy dogs who occasionally comes with us when possible and are happy to have other well behaved dogs stay too.
    Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions.
