Who we are

  1. We are a couple with 2 children : one 12 year old girl and a 9 year old girl.

    Mike is a Landscape gardener/designer and has run his own business for over 30 years.

    Moya has been a full time Mum for the last 12 years, but previously worked for BA Holidays.

    Polly our eldest daughter is 12 and Harriet is 9.

    We travelled a lot before we had our girls and now feel this will be the best way to start travelling with them.

    We spend a lot of time enjoying picnics, cycling, camping and discovering new places. We love wildlife and teaching our children how to respect and enjoy everything around them including our beautiful home.

    We have the greatest respect for any property we would exchange with and looking for like minded people.

There are many fantastic restaurants and pubs on the coast and hidden in the countryside. There are miles of footpaths and bridal ways including the Southdowns Way right on our doorstep. There is so much to do for both adults and children.
