My name is Julie and I’m early retired from Local Government. I live alone, occasionally travel on my own but more often with a friend.
I have been a member of Homelink since 2007 and with 40+ successful exchanges to date I have a good understanding of the requirements of house exchange partners. I can assure you of a comfortable and enjoyable stay in Trowbridge.
I have family living in New Zealand and am always open to non-simultaneous offers from house exchange partners in that part of the world.

Descripción de la casa que ofrecemos en intercambio
A warm welcome awaits you in the small market town of Trowbridge in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Close to Bath, Bristol and Salisbury also an easy journey to London for day trips or overnight stays.
My smoke free, pet free home is fairly new and provides all the amenities necessary for modern living. Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac development with friendly and helpful neighbours the south facing rear garden catches the sun all day and overlooks open countryside. It is just 5 minutes walk from a large country park ideal for running, walking, bird watching or just relaxing.
However, with so much to see and do in the area, I imagine you will be out and about most of the time.
Trowbridge main line station is 20 minutes walk or easy bus ride. It has direct trains to Bath, Bristol, South Wales, Salisbury and other places on the south coast. Also easy connections via Bath to London, or connections via Bristol to travel north.
Bristol (1 hr drive) cheap flights to Europe with Easyjet or Ryanair (bus from Bath direct to terminal)
London Heathrow (2 hrs) major airport for long haul flights (coach from Chippenham direct to all terminals)
London Gatwick (2½ hrs)
