Nunfield Barn home swap

It is a detached barn with a garden in a rural area neighbouring on orchards. It is located on a quiet country lane but with very easy and close asccess to the motorways. We have five bedrooms, four with double beds and one with a single bed. There are three bathrooms with showers and two have the shower over the bath. There are also two additional toilets downstairs. The barn was originally two semi detached properties so has a large living space with a wood burning stove, a separate dining room off the kitchen which has an Aga (electric) and a room with a table tennis table in it just off the second kitchen area used as a utility room with washing machine and a Victorian dryer. There is also an electric cooker in the utility room although we tend not to use it. We have lived in the house for twenty years so is very homely, spacious and very comfortable but not luxuriously decorated. There is a garden, a private driveway and parking for cars.
