Who we are

  1. Hello,

    I'm Pam,I'm a retired Paramedic who now fosters special needs children, mostly infants with drug addiction. I also have 3 grown daughters, now in their 30's. We are a quiet bunch and enjoy the outdoors, the sea and really enjoy all ethnic foods.
    I am a first generation Brit, as my mum was English and my Dad was Irish, I love to visit the places I have heard about all my life. WE LOVE THE SEA, so we'd like to stay within 30 minutes or so of the coast. We are expieranced swappers. We would really appreciate email chats to get to know you and your needs so we can do our best to see you have a lovely time whilst staying in our home.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

This is a house of children, so we have a child friendly home. Toys and games abound. The picture of my kitchen is one of my daughters, Kate, she has her English Grandmothers flair for the dramatic, she will be traveling with us. I am an older single mother (60) with 3 adopted children, Maceilah age 9, Amy 13 and Haley 16. All are well behaved and gentle with animals. We are a quiet family, enjoying trips to the sea, walks, museums,and even enjoy public transportation :) We may be traveling with another single adoptive mother and her 2 small girls. We are experienced swappers. We are easy going and easy to please. We treat all homes as our own and expect the same in return. Our aim is to enjoy the adventure, learn all we can and only leave good memories behind. Two well loved house cats will need feeding, our "Westie" pups, Jock & Fiona, will have thier own vacation elsewhere.
