Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We have a lovely comfy home in the countryside in Ireland's South East. There are 4 bedrooms. We are on our own site not overlooked from any side so it is completely private with lovely gardens. The back garden is completely enclosed so very safe for small children. There are lots of outdoor toys - trampoline, playhouse, slide, climbing frame, basketball hoop, hurls (for use in hurling which is an Irish ball game), balls, bikes, scooters, little tike cars etc. Also lots of toys inside of course. We have a lovely patio area which is sheltered so gets the best of the Irish weather! There we have a gas BBQ, outdoor table and chairs, patio heater, fire pit and egg seat. We have a lovely hammock under the trees for chilling! Indoors is very comfy with the usual mod cons. We have fibre broadband, Smart TVs, DVD player, wood stove in living area. We have an open plan kitchen/dining/living area. There is a playroom for the children along with 4 bedrooms - 2 downstairs and 2 upstairs, 2 bathrooms, a WC and utility room. Cot can be provided if needed.
