Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our home is in the beautiful town of Harpenden in the countryside, 30 mins train ride from central London. Ideal for families, with lots to see and do.

The house is on three storeys with 5 bedrooms and space to sleep 7 comfortably and up to 9 if you would like. We have two bathrooms and a WC downstairs. The garden is a good size with space to sit and for games. The BBQ and outdoor seating are ideal for summer evenings.

The house is on the edge of Harpenden, 5 minutes walk from beautiful fields for country walks, quiet pubs, horses and all the things that make England beautiful. The town has good shops, cafes and restaurants, a swimming pool, tennis and squash club, parks and a regular farmers market.

Central London is 30 minutes from Harpenden on the frequent train service. Historic Oxford and Cambridge are a little over an hour's drive away. The Chiltern hills are 30 minutes drive and provide beautiful areas for walking and activities.

We are experienced exchangers for the last 11 years.
