We are a couple of empty nesters having 4 children who have now left the family home. We are both retired University/college academics and enjoy outdoor pursuits and cooking. We are looking for short or longer-term exchanges in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and America and are open to considering all offers. We are also open to weekend breaks within striking distance of Cornwall, mainly for the two of us as a couple, but also open to exchanges for family/ social groups as we enjoy going away with like-minded friends. A summer break with a group of 8 of us in Europe is also on our wish list. We are clean and tidy and promise to take great care of your home. We have exchanged 25+ times of short and longer-term, in UK, abroad, and for short breaks and holidays; always successfully. Looking forward to the next one!

Descrizione della casa che offriamo
We have a large, 3-storey Farmhouse, built in 1895, renovated in 2004, with 4 bedrooms (on the second floor) and 3 bathrooms. There is also an integral flat on the top floor with a further double bedroom, living area, bathroom, and some catering facilities, which can also be available. Although this our main residence we are also open to non-simultaneous exchanges as we are frequently travelling in the UK and abroad.
Cornwall is one of the most desirable places to stay in the UK. There are gorgeous beaches, unique markets, surfing, local cuisine and breathtaking views. Cornwall is great for a family holiday, a break with friends or a romantic getaway.
Our home is secluded and private. We are surrounded by fields - our house is situated on an acre of land and was previously a Cornish farmhouse, which we fully renovated. And the detailed bit...
Ground Floor: a large kitchen with dining area and living area, 3 nice good sized reception rooms, utility room, toilet.
2nd Floor: Master bedroom + ensuite, guest room + ensuite, big bathroom, two further double bedrooms, a very large reception/games room with TV, play station etc.
3rd Floor: Now an integral 1 bedroom flat, accessed through the house. Consists of a large bedroom with a double bed, an open plan living room, bathroom and some catering facilities. We have broadband wifi through the house.
