Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

UPDATE OCT 2018 - NO EXCHANGES POSSIBLE AT THE MOMENT. Our house is on the market and so we are unable to agree any exchanges at the moment. Keep us on your shortlist though as we will be back with a bigger and better house soon in the same area :-)

We have a cosy and comfortable family home in Plymouth, a wonderful part of South West England. 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.

Our home has 4 beds (1 king with ensuite, 2 doubles 1 single) and a sunny south facing garden with some nice views over Plymouth Sound and into Cornwall. It's a light and open living space with plenty here to entertain children. Plymouth is a vibrant coastal city, with lots going on. It's well worth a visit

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live in a quiet street in the middle of a residential part of Plymouth. We are a short taxi ride from the mainline station and the area is well served by public transport. You can walk into Plymouth city centre within 25 minutes or drive to the beautiful Hoe & Barbican within 10 minutes. Or, a 10-15 minute drive will get you to all corners of the city. A short walk from our house there is a very large park area which also contains Plymouth Life Centre, a new centre offering a multitude of activities, from rock climbing to fitness and an Olympic sized swimming and diving pool. There are a number of playparks for small children close by. We are also a very short drive to the main routes into Cornwall and Devon so everything is very accessible. There are a number of shops close by so you won't have to go far to get anything that you need. We have lovely friendly neighbours who would be happy to help you. From the house you have views of Plymouth Sound and out into Cornwall.

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.
