Comfortable family home on the edge of an East Devon coastal village, beach within a mile’s walk home swap

We are looking for a swap for a week or so over the Easter holidays in 2018. Ideally Wales or Cornwall, rural. We are also interested in swaps for the first week or so in August in UK/Europe, idealy rural.

Our home is in a perfect location for beach holidays, walking and nature-lovers. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in a quiet position on the edge of the historic village of Salcombe Regis, close to Sidmouth and within walking distance of Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary.

We have 4 bedrooms (one king size, one double sofa bed (soon to be double bed), one single bed and a daybed), 2 bathrooms (one a wet room), an eat-in kitchen, sitting room and dining room. The large cottage garden includes a generous decking area, small pond (unfenced), swing, trampoline, games room, and backs onto a meadow. The gravel driveway accommodates up to four cars.

We are experienced swappers, having swapped over 15 times. Our daughters are 16 and 13. In addition to the wii, boardgames, pool and table football, we have a small selection of toys, books and games suitable for younger children, plus masses of craft stuff.

We have a friendly, short-haired black cat (no litter tray). We have been happy to keep her out of the bedrooms for swappers with cat allergies and they have not had any problems.
