Our home

Our home is a comfortable, spacious, village house. It has lots of history and character; with beams and two log burning stoves and an Aga. It is a characterful and cosy family home. The garden is very attractive and although in the centre of the village is very private. There is also an outbuilding that is kitted out as an art studio and gallery space and this might also be part of the swap, if required. This could represent a special opportunity in its own right, if you are an artist/designer or curator. Please take a look at my website; www.strangersartspace.com There is permission to sell art work from the outbuilding 3 days per week.

Who we are

  1. I am an artist and I would be travelling with my 11 year old. I have been offered an art residency in New York and am therefore looking for a specific location nearby. The residency is based in Sparkill and I am possibly hoping to be based in Scarsdale, in the catchment area for Scarsdale Middle school. However, I would possibly consider other areas within reach of Sparkill. I am hoping to do the residency this May and June 2011. However, I might also consider coming in school holiday time and might consider coming for one month. In other words, I am flexible at the moment but am keen to have something arranged within the next few weeks. I have an adorable little dog, who could accompany the swap. I also have a car we could swap. We would take good care of your home and in return hope you will look after ours; we can ask our cleaner to keep the house clean when you are here, if it suits you. I have never done a house swap before and would try and facilitate a good holiday for you.

Situated in a picturesque, conservation village in rural North Norfolk. It is at the hub of the village, right by the shop and post office and it is therefore convenient and situated at the heart of the community. The area is great for walking,cycling and bird-watching, as it is surrounded by National Trust land and 3 large estates. The local village pub is renowned for excellent food and atmosphere. It is also about a 30 minute drive to Norwich; for shopping, cinemas etc.
