Our home

Our home is a lovely family home with one double bedroom (a Jack and Jill bathroom acts as both an ensuite and main bathroom), two single bedrooms and a tiny box room where our 6 year old sleeps. We also have a stunning lounge with bay window, large plasma tv and 2 huge sofas. One is a very large King sized sofa thus allowing more guests if necessary.
The second reception room acts as a dining room/music room with a beautiful antique English Baby Grand Piano!
The dining kitchen is big enough to eat in and leads out to the lean to with washer and drier and then on further to the Courtyard complete at the right time of year with our own Vine and Grapes!!
The upstairs bathroom has bath and shower over. The downstairs loo is compact but good in an emergency!

Who we are

  1. I am a Modern Languages teacher in a local grammar school and have 3 amazing and well behaved sons who love to travel and have adventures.
    Our last trips were to the island of Mallorca and to central Paris and Disneyland. We have never house swapped formally before although we regularly stay with friends and family and similarly have them down here in Devon with us.
    Our home is clean and tidy and we also enjoy it.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Sidmouth is a regency town in East Devon, close to both Lyme Regis (on the famous Jurassic coast) and Ladram Bay. The town of Sidmouth is unspoilt and utterly picturesque. We have been used in many films over the years including a few recent Agatha Christie film adaptations. We are half an hour from the city of Exeter which enjoys museums, art galleries, copious theatres,shops and restaurants..to name but a few. The large city of Bristol is an hour and a quarter away. London is about 3 hours by train from Honiton and is a very pleasant journey.
We love the area due to the fact that we can cycle, kayak, windsurf and walk to our hearts content!
Half a minute's walk down the road, you have a pharmacy, Spar shop with dvd rentals, food, alcohol and all you need. There is also a superb doctors surgery, award winning fish and chip shop (yes really..the great and delectable British delicacy) and "The Salty Monk" a prestigious and yearly award winning restaurant and B and B! We would not want to live anywhere else!
