Small but perfectly formed York base with parking home swap
We live in the historic medieval city of York, which is surrounded by original Roman Walls. Access by train to London is easily accessible and it's less than 2 hrs travel time.
Our house has 2 double bedrooms and one family bathroom, all mod cons and modern facilities. The house was built 5 years ago and is spacious bright and airy. Cleaning services for the house are available once a week at no extra charge.
We have excellent public transport links close to the house and the train station is not far from the house.
The beautiful North Yorkshire Moors/Dales can be reached within 40 minutes by car, or alternatively the lively, cosmopolitan cities of Leeds, Manchester and historic Harrogate can all be easily reached too - this is one of the beauties of York - it is so central to so many places. I have attached an official tourist board link for you so that you may see for yourself why visiting York is a must do in your lifetime www.visityork.org/
York was the original Viking capital city (long before London) and remained a very important Royal City during history. King Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and many other Royals have a strong connection and history with our great city. Indeed, the current Duke of York, Prince Andrew regularly visits the city and its residents.
Also in the city centre, we have the beautiful York Minster (Cathedral) which is world famous and has been regularly visited by the current HRH Queen Elizabeth II. We are also lucky to boast having one of the countries earliest schools in the history of the world! A famous former pupil is Guy Fawkes, (Gunpowder Plot of 1605 AD) also was born in the city and attended this school during the 1500's, but dates back to 627 AD, We have art galleries, museums, wonderful historic old English pubs, great places to eat.....come and see for yourself.
I am an experienced exchanger, having exchanged to Brazil, Edinburgh, Hampshire in the past and look forward to many more exchange experiences.
