Charming 300 year old detached cottage in the beautiful Cotswolds home swap
Our home is clean & orderly. It has a kitchen, snug, large sitting room and a downstairs loo. There are two available double bedrooms upstairs and two bathrooms. The cottage has a garden, driveway, garage/play room and a shed where the bikes are.
You will need to like cats as we have two; both are friendly.
We're looking for house swaps for weekends or during the school holidays in the UK, France or Europe more broadly.
About the location
We are located in a pretty Cotswold village. There is a pub 200 metres down the road and plenty of fields with walk routes.
There are so many picturesque villages and wonderful walks surrounding us here in the Cotswolds. For example, Bibury which dates back to the Saxon times, Meysey Hampton, the Ampneys, Lower & Upper Slaughter - to name but a few.
There is also the nearby Cotswold Water Park for water activities such as sailing. There are plenty of activities for children here too, eg. raft building, stand-up paddle boarding.
The closest shops are in the nearby market town of Fairford, a 10 minute drive away. It has a Post Office, Londis, Co-op, cafes & restaurants. Cirencester, which was an important city during the Roman era, is only 20 minutes away and is more substantial. There's also Cheltenham which is 40 minutes, Bath & Gloucester.
London is an 1.5 hours away if you feel inclined for a day trip.
You'll need to have your own transport to house swap here.
