Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We will take good care of your home, as we hope you will do the same in return. We are flexible with the dates and would like 2 weeks, but are happy with just one week as we plan travelling a few days before the holiday in Norway. we are looking at early August, which if you want to see the Edinburgh Festival would be the best time.
We have a couple of kayaks that can be used as well as 4 mountain bikes (2 for kids) and a paddleboard
