Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We are optimistic that we may be able to arrange some exchanges in 2021. Any plans will be Covid dependent but we are interested in exchanges within the UK for the first part of the year. Should travel then become easier, we hope to expand our horizons to include Europe and beyond in the latter part of the year.

Our home is a comfortable detached chalet bungalow with a large garden and ample parking. We are sited above and well back from, the main road between our commuter village and the nearest town of Eastleigh, with immediate views of paddocks and the distant city of Southampton.

We have set up our home to be cosy and easy to live in. The kitchen is large, well equipped and overlooks the garden; the central dining table is a place to chat and eat and is always in use for some job or other. For convenience, the kitchen also houses the dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier and a TV. You can reach the garden from the kitchen door which immediately opens into a porch and car port.

In the summer, we spend a lot of time in the conservatory which projects into the garden and this is a lovely place to relax during the day or evening. Our attractive garden has several seating areas allowing you to enjoy sun or shade at any time of the day.

Upstairs, the master bedroom with its en-suite bathroom is spacious and overlooks the garden and it is accessed via the study which has views across the road to paddocks.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Fair Oak is a growing suburban village. It has three pubs, a very good Indian restaurant and several take-aways including a very good fish and chip shop. There are two small shopping centres featuring two convenience stores, hair dressers, bakery and pharmacy. The local surgery and another pharmacy are a 5 minute walk away. Eastleigh is a 10 minute drive and this old railway town offers many more shops and facilities including a modern cinema, bowling alley, sports centre and small theatre.

From our house you can walk to local woods but we are very well situated for short drives to numerous local beauty spots showing off Hampshire's chalk downs, coast and estuarine scenes and riverside walks. There are two 18 hole golf courses within 5 minutes of the house and you are welcome to use our clubs.
Fair Oak has excellent transport links being close to railway stations, Southampton Airport, the national motorway network, cross channel ferry and cruise ship terminals.

Attractions

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

Within an hour's drive of the house there are so many attractions that we can only give a flavour here. We have a separate document for our exchange partners that contains a comprehensive list and web site links plus a few suggestions of our favourites.
Within a 20 minute drive you can reach Winchester, an attractive historic cathedral town, Southampton - a modern port and commercial city and several attractive Hampshire market towns. A half hour's drive will take you to many places of interest such as: the naval port of Portsmouth where you can explore historic ships, Southsea which has a range of attractions on the seafront and the New Forest with its walks and wildlife.
Within an hour's drive you can reach several sea-side resorts: Bournemouth- for a day on the beach, Brighton for the pier and pavilion, Poole- windsurfing, Worthing and Chichester. If you head inland you can reach Salisbury (Stonehenge, cathedral), Oxford and the outskirts of London. Interspersed between the various towns and cities is some beautiful countryside with many well defined walks along the coast, rivers, woodland and chalk downland. Our area has interest for: leisurely viewing of historic houses (including Highclere Castle, the set for Downton Abbey) gardens and sites of interest, more active hiking, biking and golfing and many attractions for younger folk - for whom a separate activity folder is available.
