1930s extended semi detached, close to Lake District home swap

Our 1930s traditional semi is a great size house, recently extended, and currently being decorated. Our pride is our open plan kitchen diner living space with french doors to our garden. The kitchen is the heart of our home, and seats 6 comfortably around the breakfast table. Double Neff oven, and lots of gadgets available for budding chefs.

Our garden has a 6 burner BBQ, and table and chairs for when the weather is good. We have a greenhouse, fruit trees and games/trampoline.

We have 3 double bedrooms and 1 with ensuite. We have one completed bathroom upstairs, and at time of writing are in the midst of completing our 3rd shower room downstairs.

We have 2 children, so there is an abundance of toys and games for your use. We have an Xbox with fun family games. Wifi is available, and we subscribe to Netflix / Amazon.

Barrow is very close to the Lake District, and we are close to nature reserves and fabulous beaches.

We are walking distance to Furness Abbey, and not far from Piel Castle. On the doorstep of the Lakes, there are some amazing walks and hikes, and great swimming in the summer months. We have plenty of guide books / OS maps to get you started.

If you are a foody, there are some amazing restaurants nearby - including L'Enclume (one of the top restaurants in the UK) in the beautiful village of Cartmel (home of sticky toffee pudding).

Great public transport links from our home to the surrounding towns - Barrow being the main shopping town (walking distance). We are 2 hours from Manchester and Liverpool airports, and 4 hours on a train from London Euston.

We've done 4 house swaps so far, and are keen to do more.
We have a friendly cat - Tigerlilly. She is very independent and would just need water / food daily.
