Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Lovely restored Edwardian home centred around comfort and relaxation. From the home to the garden to the lovely surrounding parks, lakes and town centre. Every amenity is within walking distance and excellent for a great stay.

Our home is a beautifully restored Edwardian house, built in the 1920’s, ideally positioned in a quiet leafy suburb, next to the picturesque lakes and parks. It’s also within 500 metres of the popular Festival Place shopping centre with its renowned selection of shops and great restaurants, plus 2 theatres, an 8 screen cinema and mainline railway station that has a direct line into London Waterloo (55 minutes) and the south coast (35 minutes).
It is also within 1 mile of the M3 motorway that can quickly transport you throughout the south or of England. Its location is hard to better.

However, if you enjoy walking, there are splendid old canal side walks to historic sites, parks, lakes, fields and surrounding countryside. The famous National Trust ruins of Basing House are a super 25 minute walk. And don’t forget the many gorgeous ‘Olde Worlde Pubs’ that surround the area are another delight not to miss.

But equally, within literally 10 minutes driving you can be lost in the Hampshire countryside, visiting historic villages and landmarks that every tourist falls in love with. All this right on our doorstep, yet the next day you can be visiting the centre of London by train, all organised with ease and no fuss. Our location and home has the best of every world.

But if you’re like us and enjoy a day relaxing in the garden, an evening meal or Bar-B-Q, then “The Gables” is second to none. Its garden is gorgeous, we love our peace and quiet and we hope you will too.

We have built our lives around comfort, relaxation and enjoying simple pleasures. If you’re like minded, we’re sure you’ll have a fabulous holiday.

Our top of the range Mercedes GLC is available (as seen in the photo) subject to certain conditions.
