This exchange with Jim and Dinah was a wonderful experience from start to finish. They made our arrival a delight with a home-made meal ready for the oven and TWO beautiful flower arrangements! Their home is quiet, roomy, modern and beautifully furnished, and is situated just steps away from The Parade in Parkgate, with views across the River Dee, several fine and affordable restaurants and pubs, and an excellent ice cream shop that we frequented regularly. The location was ideal for day and overnight trips to Wales, Liverpool, the Cotswolds, the Lake District, etc. Jim and Dinah also left our own home immaculate when they left. And they were such a pleasure to communicate with that our only regret is that we never had a chance to meet them face-to-face! Very highly recommended.
Very friendly couple. Home so British that we would have stayed a little bit longer. We found the place very clean and tidy with a few ingredients for our first meal. We've been introduced to the local tennis club thanks to the family, what gives us quite a lot of fun playing on the grass (what you cannot find anywhere else). We tried some amazing restaurants on the first street down the house. The area is lovely and we enjoyed travelling to the Welsh Mountains, that are just outstanding. It was a pleasant time and a very successful swap.
We enjoyed a very relaxing spring break on the Wirral in Jim and Dinah's beautiful home. This was a part of the UK we had never visited before and our stay was far too short to explore all that the area has to offer. We thoroughly recommend visiting the area, lots to see and do in the immediate vicinity and great for day trips to Chester, Liverpool, North Wales and even Ireland. Jim & Dinah are great hosts and provided all the information one could want to make the most of one's stay, we can't wait to go back!
