Lovely 3 Bed home swap in Ipswich, England

Modest 3 bedroom semi-detached house with underfloor heating, recently modernized to provide spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen area with stunning views over open farmland, salt marsh, river estuary (AONB) and RSPB reserve. So if you are interested in peace and tranquility with bird watching, boating or walking on your doorstep, this is the place to be.

Beautiful spot located edge of village (pop.2,500) with facilities, so not remote.
Regular bus service to Ipswich (pop 128,000). takes 30 mins. From there, mainline train to London only 75mins.

East Anglia has many historic and culturally important sites, beautiful villages, timber framed colour washed houses and country cottages, and a wonderfully varied landscape but no mountains!! Within a 2 hour car ride we have:-

- and a coastline punctuated by tidal estuaries and rivers, all overhung with huge East Anglian skies.

By Sea - Directly opposite Harwich International Port with regular ferry sailings to Holland and Scandinavia. ( & )

By Air - Stansted Airport, with hundreds of budget flights all over Europe - 90 mins. by car. ( & )
