Had a great time in a great home in a beautiful part of the world. Bravo!
What a lovely home in a beautiful setting. Watching the canal boats entering the locks from the lovely, sun trapped conservatory, was idyllic. There were great walks around and about, especially alongside the canal itself. The 30 minute trip inside was very informative and the locals were very friendly and helpful. Such a shame about the delapitated old mills, hopefully they will be converted into something worthy of Marsden itself. We found the house very relaxing and listening to the silver band practicing on a Wednesday evening was another treat!!! Thank you so much for this exchange, we loved it.
August 2021. Sorry - just noticed I hadn't signed your guest book! Roger and Sheila's home is stunning and a lovely place to spend time and they left provided us with some great tips for things to do locally. We enjoyed being close to the canal and walks long it. Marsden was full of interesting industrial heritage. The train station takes you straight into Manchester really easily. Your projector inspired us to get own own!
Roger and Sheila’s home was an amazingly comfortable base from which to enjoy the local Yorkshire countryside. They are so obviously seasoned house-swappers as everything was so organised and instructions so detailed. On top of that, we were made very welcome. Thank you for a lovely swap.
Thank you Roger and Sheila for a wonderful exchange! Your home is warm and welcoming and ideally situated, with a lovely canal walk right from the bottom of the garden while five minutes' walk from the front door takes you into the centre of the attractive town of Marsden. Further afield, and still without any need for getting into the car (ours stayed put for the entire six days) there are myriad walking opportunities in all directions, far more than we could have ever explored. Hope we can do a repeat some time!
merci encore pour cet échange
Roger and Sheila were amazing hosts for their countryside home. Rural Marsden seemed like a peaceful step back in time and was a very convenient home base to explore the beautiful area.
Thank you for making this exchange with us, your house is a gem and that garden! I still dream about it :) We are so pleased we made this exchange with you :)
we immediately felt at home in this wonderfull house, with great views on the garden and canal, great wifi-hifi, excellent beds, very well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. We were warmly welcomed by Sheila and Roger, shared a meal and gave us the grand tour of the house. They also made us a tasty meat pie; left ample food in the fridge, and local beers. The weather... well, the weather was discribed by the neighbours as typical Marsden weather: Sunshine, warm, windy and rainy, all in the same day. Lots of things to do and see in the neighbourhood. Great walks. It was a treat to sit in the garden, watching the narrow boats in the lock, watching the hikers. Pippa, our sausage dog, also adored the great garden and the squirrels. Sheila and Roger left us plenty tourist brochures. When we returned home, our house was well looked after and the neighbour spoke highly of Sheila and Roger. We would definitely recommend these exchange partners and loved Marsden
We had a tremendous time in Marsden village in SW Yorkshire. What wonderful exchange partners we had who demonstrated generosity and a warm welcome to a stylish, comfortable house. We felt at home straightaway even a bit lost in the huge showers! What a treat! We enjoyed: meeting our family and friends who live in the North West, walking in and around Marsden; watching -birds, narrow boats, the landscape, people, the ducks; relaxing in a beautiful home; sitting in the conservatory; admiring the many radios; eating too many Yorkshire pies and listing all the things still to do.....we were just so busy unwinding that we didn't have time to explore further afield, walk the Colne Valley Loop, Pule Hill or take the train to Leeds, York or Manchester. Your home and its location created a perfect Easter exchange. Thank you for exchanging with us.
