Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our spacious country home, is in an unspoilt and picturesque part of SW Scotland,10 mins drive from the beautiful Solway coast.(www.visitdumfriesandgalloway.co.uk).This region of Scotland is often missed by tourists on their way to the Scottish cities and Highlands, which makes it even more appealing, and is equally spectacular in terms of scenery.
Our home is modern with all amenities and has beautiful views with a large garden to enjoy.
We have 2 living areas and all you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Our area offers many cultural, leisure and wildlife pursuits and nearby we have cycle trails(www.7stanes.gov.uk), many golf courses, hill and coastal walks. Locally there are many sites of historical interest.

Our house has 3 double bedrooms, master with en-suite, and a study with sofa bed.
We have remodelled the kitchen and bathroom, also adding a garden room to enjoy the surrounding views.
Our home has central heating & wood burning stoves.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Nearby, a 5 min drive from our home is a lovely organic farm shop and cafe which we use frequently. There are many other good farm shops and garden centres also with good cafes nearby.
We have several favourite restaurants, two of which are at the coast, and The Caven's Arms in Dumfries has good pub food.
We have preplanned day trips for our visitors and we know the best places to see depending on your interests as we are tour guides. We enjoy 'showcasing' our region as we are very proud of its qualities, in terms of beauty, the people who live here and things to do and see.
We also like to meet our exchangees so that we can enhance their holiday experience and their time in our home.
The towns in our area offer speciality shops and are interesting in their own right but for 'High St' shopping, Dumfries has some malls and Carlisle in N England is a 30 min train trip from Dumfries and has a good shopping centre easily walkable. It also is friendly and has many historical sites.
