Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

ALL BOOKED FOR 2019. We've just moved to a lovely new house in Plymouth! It’s a lovely house in Plymouth. It had 4/5 beds and can sleep up to 9. We've just moved so not yet ready to take photos but will do so asap. The ones on here of the house are for our old house - this one is nicer :-). Happy to give early consideration to 2020 - school holidays only.

We have a large and comfortable detached family home in Plymouth, a wonderful part of South West England. There are 5 bedrooms (1- master with super-king and en-suite; 2- king size and en-suite / 3- double / 4-double sofa-bed in snug / 5- space for a temporary single bed if required). We have a large and fully equipped family kitchen, dining room and a beautiful large lounge lit by an orangery roof and bi-fold doors into the garden. The garden has a lovely eating and sitting area, with bbq and space for the kids to burn off a bit more energy if they haven't done that on one of our lovely beaches. You'll be very comfortable. Parking for 5 cars on the drive.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We're ideally located for exploring this part England being right on the border between Devon and Cornwall. On our doorstep and within a short drive are many wonderful locations, to suit all tastes, from beautiful beaches; postcard fishing villages, English Heritage and National Trust properties and gardens; sailing around the coast; walking on the moors or coastal paths; exploring the area's naval history. There are also lots of great restaurants and plenty to do with children of all ages. Plymouth is a vibrant coastal city, with lots going on. It's well worth a visit.

We live in a quiet street in the middle of a residential part of Plymouth. We are a 10 minute taxi ride from the mainline station and the area is very well served by public transport with the Plymouth Park and Ride hub a 5 minute walk from the house. A 10-15 minute drive will get you to all corners of the city and one of the main routes through the city and to the rest of Devon and Cornwall is a couple of minutes away. There are a number of shops close by so you won't have to go far to get anything that you need, including a large superstore a 5 minute drive away. There are some nice walks in the immediate local area including wooded walks through the local nature reserve.

Attractions

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

There are so many attractions within a relatively short distance that they are too numerous to name here. We will leave a detailed list of them with approximate travelling times in our house book. You would never be short of things to do and see, whatever your preference is.
For those that love the water it is all around us, with many centres offering water sport activities, or just visit one of our stunning local beaches. There are miles of beautiful coastal path and many historical sites, including many English Heritage and National Trust properties. Plymouth itself has a strong naval history and this can be explored and for us, there is absolutely nothing that beats sitting on Plymouth Hoe, enjoying a morning coffee and watching the boats go by.
Plymouth is ideally situated for travel into Devon and Cornwall, being on the borders of the counties. Our house is a short drive to the main route through the counties (A38) and to the mainline train station.

Our Preferences
