Our 1930s detached 4 bedroomed house is situated in a quiet residential area overlooking the beautiful Mayfield Valley. We are south facing and enjoy a light and airy through kitchen, dining and living space which give good views of our mature garden. Flowers, shrubs and lawn make the garden an inviting area in which to sit, eat and relax. A front facing sitting room offers a quiet haven for watching the TV and winding down in the evenings. Downstairs also consists of a study, utility room and hall. Upstairs we have a master bedroom with ensuite bath and shower room, second double bedroom, two large single bedrooms, toilet and shower room. Three of the bedrooms are south facing and enjoy views across the valley.

The exchange party

Recently retired from careers in education, we now wish to travel and experience new horizons both near and far. Lovers of the outdoors, we enjoy walking in beautiful surroundings. John is a climber and runner, Angela likes to draw and paint. We both enjoy music, cultural activities and the architecture and history of cities. Our two adult children, now left home, may occasionally travel with us. We are flexible in travel dates and can offer simultaneous or non-simultaneous swaps.
