Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We are open to any offers, and our dates are fully flexible. Now that the UK lockdown appears to be coming to an end, we are looking for a week or a long weekend anywhere in the country.
Please note, an automatic reply message may be sent in error by the system - we will always send a personal note rather than an automated message.
Our home is made up of two workers cottages built in the 1850s. The two cottages have been knocked together to form a house with 2 bedrooms, a lounge and a kitchen diner. The house is small but can accommodate 4 adults with ease. There is a double bedroom along with a bigger twin bedroom, which could be big enough to contain a small cot/crib. There is a separate toilet and the bathroom has a small bathtub with an electric shower over the tub.
The home is centrally heated and double glazed throughout, although we do have a fully usable fireplace, which makes for a very cosy house on the colder nights. There is broadband WiFi throughout the house and we have a television with DVD player built in. The TV can show live programs, but is also connected to an Amazon Fire Stick streaming system. We also have an old but working laptop, with full internet access.
There is under stairs storage and a small storage room to the side of the kitchen which contains a washing machine & tumble dryer with room to hang coats and store muddy walking boots.
There is a small outside area laid with gravel.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Ulverston is a market town just outside the southwest corner of the Lake District national park. It is built around a cobbled main street containing specialist shops, pubs with real ale and open fires, independent hotels, restaurants and cafes, many of which serve fresh local produce. Ulverston is famous for its wide range of quirky festivals and events, largely driven by enthusiastic groups of local people. Our house is situated just outside the centre of the town, and is 3 minutes walk from all the amenities. The town has a mainline railway station which has a regular direct service to Manchester and the airport, taking around 2 hours. By car Manchester airport is approximately 90 minutes drive.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

This is a holiday home, so we are able to exchange on a none simultaneous basis if needed. We are experienced exchangers (21 years and over 25 exchanges) and have come to expect our home to be in the same condition as we will leave yours - clean and tidy. Other than that, we would just like you to enjoy your time there.
