Snug end of terrace home near the sea home swap

Our home is a comfortable 3 storey end of terrace Edwardian house in a quiet residential street in the heart of Poole, Dorset. We are 1 min walk from the amenities of Poole High Street whilst also being 3 mins walk from the sea with beautiful views across Poole Harbour.

It consists of 4 bedrooms - 1 double (queen sized bed), & 3 singles (one of which is a folding bed but very comfortable). Downstairs we have a modern kitchen joining onto the dining room (equipped with cosy woodburner), and a separate lounge. Our sunny south facing garden has a patio for outdoor eating and a snug garden room for creativity and contemplation.

We have done 3 house exchanges in the last couple of years and have come to really appreciate this approach to holidays. We have references from past exchange families if needed.
