Our home

We offer a comfortable, family home with a large, mature garden in a traditional English village, close to Cambridge. Our house has four bedrooms, the master bedroom has a king sized bed, the second bedroom has a single bed with a pull out bed underneath which can either be used as a second single bed or joined together to form a super king size bed. The third and fourth bedrooms have cabin beds, one is a standard single and the other is a "shorty" bed (small single). Downstairs we have a kitchen breakfast room, a comfortable lounge and dining room, a separate study and a sun lounge which we use as a playroom. The sun lounge opens onto a large patio with outdoor dining facilities. Our garden is large by English standards with mature planting and a vegetable garden.

Who we are

  1. We are Paul and Sarah, a married couple with three children (age 10, 7 and 4). We are both professionals (electronic engineer and environmental engineer). We have done three home exchanges before to Massachusetts (through this site), Portugal and Spain. All three have been wonderful holidays and we have always had positive feedback from the people we exchanged with. We are currently mainly interested in exchanging in the UK in school holidays, athough we are open to other offers.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live on the edge of a traditional Cambridgeshire village, and the rear of our property overlooks fields. Our village has a lovely village green (5 min walk) and several pubs, local shops and a post office. We are 10 minutes walk from the train station where you can catch trains to Ely (12 min) Cambridge (6 min) and London (1 hour). We are also close to the river Cam and you can walk through our community woodland to the river, where there is a pub/restaurant and towpaths in both directions to Ely and Cambridge. You can cycle along this traffic free route to the heart of Cambridge. Cambridge is an internationally renowned tourist city and has many attractions, including the colleges, the Fitzwilliam Museum and punting on the river Cam.
London is only one hour away by train, so day trips to the capital are easy.
We are well located for exploring East Anglia and the East of England, including Ely, Bury St Edmonds, Thetford Forest, the Norfolk Coast and St Albans.
