Who we are

  1. We are Dave (Finance Manager for a Telecoms company) and Debs (f/t Mum and trainee Legal Executive) both in our late forties. We have two young boys Harry (9) and Tom (4)and a gorgeous Spinger Spaniel called Charlie. We took the decision to move here from London 6 years ago for a better way of life and have not looked back since. This is the perfect place to live if you love the seaside and enjoy being outdoors as much as we do.

    We have now completed four home exchanges, with two more lined up in New Zealand this winter and we can thoroughly recommend the experience to anyone who is thinking of trying it for the first time.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are situated in a quiet residential area close to both Bournemouth town centre & Poole Harbour and only a short walk from the beach. Whilst the beach is great for swimming and body-boarding, Poole Harbour itself is perfect for windsurfing and sailing. There are endless opportunities for day-trips with the stunning World Heritage Jurassic Coast (great for fossil hunting), the beautiful scenery of the Isle of Purbeck and the National Trust beaches of Studland Bay all just a short chain-ferry ride across the harbour. Alternatively, you can take the ferry to Brownsea Island nature reserve in the middle of the harbour, or drive to the New Forest National Park and enjoy its myriad of unspoilt cycle paths and great pubs, or tour inland to explore the delights of Thomas Hardys romantic Wessex countryside and historic sites such as Stonehenge and Salisbury cathedral. All this and London less than 2 hours away by train - a great place for us to live and a perfect setting for you to have a fun-packed holiday!
