Lovely 4 Bed home swap in London, England
LOOKING FOR AN EXCITING OFFER DURING THE OLYMPICS! Our house could be available for the WHOLE OF AUGUST 2012. We could accommodate two families in two doubles and two twin rooms. We are looking for mountain views, beautiful countryside, a pool and preferably somewhere you can fly to reasonably inexpensively (and from where you can watch the Olympics on the TV). We'd like to visit Switzerland, the Black Forest area of Germany, Montenegro and Croatia but open to all offers.
Quiet, safe area in SE London only 3 (10 mins) stops from bustling South Bank. There you will find Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Royal Festival Hall, National Theatre, Tate Modern, London Eye, Southwark Cathedral and many more cultural sites and experiences. Just a short walk over London Bridge from there to the heart of the West End. We are also a short drive away from Historic Maritime Greenwich - a World Heritage Site and home of The Royal Observatory, Queen's House, National Maritime Museum and lots of interesting art/craft and flea markets. From Greenwich you can catch a ferry into central London (approx 20 mins) with amazing views and commentary.
From our local station you can take the train to Brighton on the south coast for a seaside day trip or drive out to Kent to visit the Garden of England - there are many beautiful stately homes and gardens within an hours drive.
We now have a brand new overland tube line connecting us with the existing London Underground system and with the Olympic site at Stratford. Journey time just under 30 mins.
We can offer a Peugeot 406 Estate should you wish to use a car during your stay. We can also lend you our membership cards of The National Trust and English Heritage. Our house is spacious, with a large garden, a pool table, table football, wireless internet, large flat screen HD tv with Sky Plus, additional tv with Sky, a piano, a Wii, a PS3 and a drum kit!
In previous years, we have been able to arrange holiday activity clubs for the children of exchange families.
