Our home

We have a comfortable and modern family home overlooking a large green and backing onto woodland. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a separate dining area which opens onto a south facing conservatory to enjoy the sunshine all year round. There are two separate living rooms, both with TV. The main living room has a large wood burner for cosy evenings in front of the fire.

Upstairs the main bedroom has a king size bed and en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms, one with twin beds that can be made into a double and one with high bunk bed. There is a fourth bedroom but this is currently used as a study, however we may be able to make this up as a single room. There is a sofa bed in the second sitting room downstairs which also would make a lovely bedroom.

The garden has a patio area with seating and there are lots of plants and flowers to enjoy as well as watching the wildlife that regularly visits the garden. There is a climbing frame with slide and den as well as other play equipment.

Who we are

  1. We are Dan, a teacher, and Sarah, a project manager. We are in our early 40s and have two sons, Alex, 10 and Seb, 5 who both love their Lego and spending time with their friends. We have two very friendly and good natured cats who would need to be fed whilst we're away.

    We enjoy walking, cycling and generally being outdoors as a family. We also like travelling and although we haven't managed to do this quite as much since our youngest son arrived, we would love for the boys to experience life in other countries as well as in different areas of the UK.

    We have just completed out first home exchange, which was a great success and are looking for our next adventure. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our home and although we are tied to school holidays for longer trips, we might be able to consider weekend swaps closer to home.

We are situated in a bustling village called Thorpe-le-Soken which has a range of shops, pubs and restaurants. The house is ideally placed to enjoy the beautiful beaches and seaside towns the area has to offer, known as the Essex Sunshine Coast

There is a possibility of renting a beach hut in Frinton on Sea, 5 miles away, for the duration of your stay. We can provide contact details for this if required.

We are a 20 minute drive from Colchester, the oldest roman market town in England compete with castle, park, museum and arts centre. There are also many other interesting places to discover in the area all within easy driving distance

Additionally, we are located on the border of Suffolk which has many picturesque villages and 'Constable Country' with links to the artist in Dedham, Flatford and surrounding area.
