Lovely 2 Bed home swap in Market Harborough, England

This property can now be viewed on you tube, search under tilers cottage 2 mobile.I live in a small but, I think beautiful 16th century terraced cottage, in a lovely typical English village, in the centre of England.

One hour 5 minutes by train to London, many villagers commute daily. The Cotswolds, Stratford upon Avon and Norfolk and Suffolk are easily within two hours, in fact most everywhere is within reasonable distance.

I do own two aged cats, who have a cat flap, and would be nice if they could be feed twice a day, but my neighbour is quite happy to do it.

This is a delightful village, it contains a true British Pub which, not only serves fantastic food but is the hub of the community. The village has a super hall and there is so much entertainment there to which you would be welcomed and a resident Peacock called Cyril who wanders around the village and is dearly loved. There are no shops in the village, but the next village half a mile away does.

My cottage is small, but I, biased as I am, believe that it is full of character, beams that date back to the 12th century and were reclaimed in 1602 for this cottage. I maintain a good standard and love gardening. There is a fire to snuggle up next to and the village is so peaceful, aside from Cyril screeching, the cows mooing, donkeys,horses et al and yet within a hour and a hlf you can be standing in the centre of London, Oxford or Cambridge. I love it and think anybody would and they would certainly get the whole village Britain experience and be embraced here ( if they wanted that ) otherwise, privacy.
