Our Story

About Our Founders

Brian and Catriona our founders created this Home Exchange website as they loved to travel and swapping homes is a great way to do it. As they were in the 50plus age range, they thought why not cater for this specific group?

They live in London but are Scottish. They both left Scotland many years ago, though return often for holidays and family reunions. Like many of you, they are “empty nesters”.

Brian is a keen golfer, when his back allows him to play, hence the golf section. Catriona, who isn’t into golf, likes all things cultural and historical, so they tried to combine both for their holidays.

Here’s a video of Brian explaining about HomeExchange50Plus.  We think it’s a wonderful project – I’m sure you agree.

Brian decided he’d like to play more golf this summer and we are delighted to have been able to help him to do that.  We love the home swap concept having done a successful holiday exchange with a family in Paris to their holiday home in the South of France.  They loved visiting London with their young family and our kids were thrilled to have some kids looking after their hamster!

Whilst the business is under new ownership, we continue with the same ethos – to bring home swapping to people around the world who share a love of travel and a desire to get to know the places they go to rather than visit as part of an organised group.

We hope you like our website and we look forward to you joining us. Please let us know what you think – good or bad. Email us with your thoughts and any suggestions about what you would like us to include, update or change.

And best wishes to Brian and Catriona for a long, healthy and happy retirement with much golf and exciting travel.
