Who we are

  1. *Looking for an exchange for Summer 2020 to Europe or further afield - make us an offer!*

    We are a family of four: Jeanette, Richard and twin boys Ivan and Oscar aged 16.

    We have now completed four house exchanges through the site which have all been fantastic - everything we hoped and the families enjoyed our house and location in the UK - visited Chester, Liverpool, Wales went to see Manchester United! We have two friendly cats but they go and stay at a hotel when you are here - we are happy to look after yours however.

    We love travelling to new places and discovering new regions and we like places that are a little off the beaten track and living like the locals.

    We love games, books, films, eating out, the outdoors, the beach and spending time as a family.

  2. I work for the NHS in public relations and Richard is a business manager for Fair Tax.

We also live a 20 minute walk (or short bus/car ride) from the Trafford Centre - a huge shopping mall and around there is a indoor ski centre, trampoline park, golf driving range and the biggest children;s indoor play area with slides in Europe! A local swimming pool is a short walk away and there is a fantastic aquatic centre in Manchester nearby.
