Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We have arranged a summer 2018 exchange. We would consider a UK October half term one. Beautiful, large, historic, unusual old house in S Devon village. 5 mins drive from sea. Lovely views of River Teign & rolling hills from the house. Spacious, high ceilings & original fireplaces. The kitchen is 8 x 6m & v well equipped. There are 2 large receptions (incl. a ballroom with table tennis table, TV, DVD player, pool table, stationery exercise bike and Concept 2 Rower) & an entrance conservatory 9m x 5m.
**NB We have something arranged for summer 2019. Our home is available from Sept 2019 onwards with a redecorated ballroom**

The garden is pretty: 1/3 acre, great views, vegetable patch, BBQ, sun loungers, large patio & lawn, totally enclosed. We are equipped for kids, but some steps with wide-spaced banisters make house unsuitable for young toddlers.

All 4 bedrooms are large enough for a double bed; there are 2 double rooms & 2 children's rooms. The master bedroom has a super King Size bed, open fire, views and en-suite shower room. The guest room has a double bed. One of the children's rooms has a single bed and has a ladder leading to a loft room where there is a double futon. This ladder can be packed away into the loft hatch. Our daughter's room has a single bed and is large.

The house is full of character - you will not be disappointed!

As of late Jan 2019, we are looking for 2 weeks in Lanzarote, near Malaga or S Portugal from 4 July approx. You can fly to / from Exeter Airport which is very close to us!
