Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

The house is smoke free and we do not have pets but we would be happy to look after your pets on an exchange. We have no objections to having children in an exchange & there are many attractions for them in the area but apart from having television & DVD player we don't have anything particularly geared to them. We have lots of local information in the house & can gear it to your particular requirements if you wish. Dorset is a beautiful county & we want you to enjoy your stay here.
