Exchange in place for April and August 2024

Our house is located in a  lovely, quiet, position at the end of a short lane within the village of Alton.  We have a mixture of wonderful countryside nearby - the Peak District National Park is 20 minutes drive away - and access to Alton Towers theme park & waterpark less than a mile away. With excellent road and train connections we are a great base for a stay in the UK.
Our house is set on three levels with ample accommodation to suit up to 8 people.
We have three large bedrooms and one smaller bedroom on one floor and a further bedroom in the converted loft area which has its own shower room.  We have a large bathroom and an en-suite to the main bedroom on the first floor.
The large kitchen / dining room is a great room  for sitting round the table and talking through the days adventures..
We have wireless internet access throughout the house which you are welcome to use. 
We have a garden at the front of the house which is great for children to play in, with a football goal and a small climbing frame. At the side of our house is a decking area with barbecue.
We also have a holiday home in Cornwall that we can offer as a simultaneous or a non-simultaneous exchange, (we can provide more details on request).
We reply to all emails!
