Lovely 4 Bed home swap in Andover, England
Thruxton is a quintessentially English village (population Circa 650) with thatched cottages, village green, two pubs and a church dating back to the 13th century. We are ideally placed for visits to Stonehenge (15 minutes), the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury (30 minutes), Oxford (an hour) or the Coast and New Forest (an hour). London is an hour and ten minutes by train from our local town, Andover (5 miles).
Our house, built in the seventies in a "cottage style", lies quietly within the Village Conservation Area, opposite the Village Hall, a former Weslyan Chapel dating back to 1817. The house has 3 double bedrooms, 1 single and 2 bathrooms and is surrounded by a sunny, secluded, tree-lined garden bordered by a seasonal stream.
We have lived in Hampshire, a particularly beautiful part of the south of England, for nearly 30 years. The local River Test is regarded as one of the most famous fly fishing rivers in the world and the rolling green countryside is criss-crossed with endless walking trails.
For geologists, the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in Dorset is just over an hours drive away with its abundance of fossils. [INVALID]natively, just enjoy the breathtaking views!
Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and HMS Victory are also an hour's drive away.
