Our home

Drayton Lodge is beautifully spacious 100 year old family home situated in the Berkshire village of Hermitage. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and surrounded by farmland and woods, this is the perfect location to enjoy walking, cycling, horse riding and visits to traditional country pubs and historic places of interest. This area of Berkshire is the family home of Kate Middleton - the future Queen of England. Drayton Lodge has 6 bedrooms, a sofa bed, and 4 reception rooms to accommodate 12 comfortably.

Hermitage is within easy access of the historic cities of Oxford, Windsor and Winchester and just an hour away from the centre of London. The world heritage site, Stonehenge and historic Ridgeway are an easy drive away. The Kennet and Avon Canal runs through Newbury our nearby market town, and it is possible to hire canal boats to take a lazy trip on this historic waterway. The closest town is Newbury where you can find shops, restaurants, theatres and cinema and the main line railway station.

Who we are

  1. We are Jonathan and Katie and have a teenage son and daughter. During the school holidays we love to travel and explore Europe as a family and are looking for our next adventure!

    We are new to home exchange and love the idea of staying in a home rather than a hotel. We are perhaps a little apprehensive of sharing our much loved home with an unknown family but we are hopeful of finding like-minded exchange partners who will show the same degree of care as we will for their home.
