Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

** We are looking for somewhere in Nelson NZ, for 1-3 months in Jan-April. Non-simultaneous exchange is possible, and we can arrange extra weeks in holiday accommodation (6+ resorts). Apologies for the photos - we weren't expecting to do this when we left UK, will update when we get back. **

Our house is in a quiet village, 3 miles from Malmesbury. 45 minutes from Bristol and Bath, and 90 minutes from London. 4 double bedrooms, family bath + 1 ensuite, spacious open plan kitchen / dining room, lounge and conservatory, plus study. Large garden - but don't worry, we can have it looked after.

We can also offer one or more weeks in a range of 1-bed (sleeps 4) self-catering (timeshare) accommodation through Seasons Resorts in Cornwall, Wales, Scotland, Spain or Tenerife.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our village is friendly and quiet. Just a pub, school and church, plus tennis court and playground. 3 miles (45 mins walk away, across rural countryside) is Malmesbury, England's oldest borough, a lovely old fashioned town with a range of shops, pubs, restaurants, 2 gyms/pool. It also has two supermarkets (including an excellent Waitrose).

You will need a car (negotiable) to travel further afield, as bus services to the village are infrequent.

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

Most of the local amenities are in Malmesbury, with more extensive shopping in Swindon (including a popular Outlet Village). There are two small theatres in Swindon, with larger ones in Bristol and Bath. There are 3 multiplex cinemas in Swindon, and a smaller cinema in Chippenham.

Although there are a couple of restaurants in Malmesbury, and many in Chippenham and Swindon, we would generally recommend trying the food and drink at a the extensive range of pubs in the area (see a couple of links below).

Chippenham and Swindon rail stations are 20-35 minutes' drive away, with just over an hour to London Paddington. The beautiful historic city of Bath is 45 minutes by road or road/rail, and the thriving regional city of Bristol around 45 minutes. Cirencester and the Cotswolds are 20 - 60 minutes away by car.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We would expect exchangers to keep the house clean, as they would their own, and to let us know promptly of any maintenance issues needing attention. You will find our neighbours to be friendly and helpful; we would like them to visit and check our post weekly, and to check the state of the house once during your stay.

No smoking and no pets, sorry. If you have young children, we'd ideally like to visit your home to see how it looks - but would expect you to pay for any damage/redecorating in case of accidents. You are welcome to have visitors to stay, as long as you know them well.
