Our home

The house is suitable for a small family or an artist. There is a small artist studio space adjacent to the kitchen. There are two double bedrooms with double beds and one smaller bedroom which houses a sofa that turns into a double bed. There is another sofa bed in the sitting room suitable for guests.
The conservatory leads into a lovely garden with a small patio area good for bar b q's and a wooden table with chairs. The kitchen is large by British standards and has all mod cons as well as a large (american) wooden table with benches. Being a fairly modern house (built 1980's) it stays warm in the winter is thoroughly centrally heated and has another gas fire for backup in the sitting room.
I also have a large fishtank and a small cat so you might want to bear that in mind.

Who we are

  1. I am a single lady artist with 4 grown up boys and 2 grandchildren. I am also an Arts Manager as well as having trained as a counselor and hypnotherapist. I spent 16 years of my life overseas living in Indonesia, Malaysia, Libya and the USA and having been in the UK for the past 23 years I am itching to travel again. I have always been interested in the idea of house exchange and thought I would give it a go. I will either be travelling alone or with my partner depending on the time of year.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are situated right on the border of the town of Newbury, Berkshire which is about 1hr 45 minutes by train to London and has easy access to many beautiful historical towns and cities including Oxford, 30 minutes drive North; Winchester, 30 minutes drive South and Bath, around 45 minutes West of Newbury. You can access all these places by either bus or train from Newbury train and bus station.
The house is part of a small complex in a a quiet cul de sac and just round from the house is a small park with a childrens playground. A few minutes walk will take you to open farmland and a few minutes more to the beautiful canal area The Kennet Canal where you can hire out canal boats which will take you on beautiful tours of southern England. This is a great area for bike riding and if you follow the canal path you can ride for miles meeting pubs and villages on the way.
You can access the town centre by foot if you like walking (around 15 minutes) or alternatively there is a bus service. There is a very useful shop about 5 minutes walk from the house which is open early morning till late. There are some wonderful places locally to visit including Highclere Castle on the outskirts of Newbury and the rolling hills of Berkshire.
