Our home

We live in this modern detached house in the town or Orpington, Kent. The house is on three floors. On the top floor there are two large double bedrooms each with its own en-suite bathroom. The middle floor has one large double with en-suite, two single bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The ground floor has a large bright lounge which gives onto the decking and garden, kitchen, utility room, WC and a playroom full of games including a Wii.
Outside there is a large garden with a gas barbecue, trampoline and ping-pong table.
At the front of the house is a drive with plenty of space to park and use of our car could be included. In the garage are several bicycles which you are welcome to use.

Who we are

  1. We are Kathy and Michel, a married couple in our forties and have two children: George 11 and Coco 9. We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see yours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in the UK.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The train station is 10 minutes walk away and you can jump on one of the many trains to London (London Bridge, Charing x, Victoria) which take from 20-40 minutes depending on the time of day. This gives you easy access to all the sightseeing and other activities in London. There are also bus stops just a stone's throw from the house which take you to local areas as well as passing the train station if you don't wish to walk.

More locally, you have good shopping amenities in nearby Bromley and Orpington while the famous Bluewater shopping centre is about 25 minutes drive away.

There are nearby parks, swimming pools (indoor), tennis courts all within easy reach. The Walnuts leisure centre in Orpington is only 5 minutes drive away and has gym, squash, swimming, exercise classes and also a soft play for children.
