Quaint house home swap

Our home is on one level. Sleeps 4 comfortably, but will accommodate more as there is a small sofa bed. Looks small on the outside, but very roomy on the inside. It has been referred to like the Tardis from Dr. Who as it is deceiving from the outside. It originally was a shop which was converted into a house. It is 129 yrs old. We have a large 2 bedroom ground floor house. It sits on a third of an acre of land and has a very large drive to park in. The front of the house faces onto the Main Street and has a bay window, the living room faces to the back of the property and is very quiet and secluded. The house has a lot of local history to it. The bathroom has a bath and overhead shower. The kitchen is fully fitted with all mod cons. The living room is large and comfortable. There is central heating and double glazing throughout the house. In the garden we have a large gazebo where many parties have been held. There is also a hot tub In The garden which seats 5 very comfortably. There is a 24 hr gas station and shop adjacent to the house, there is also a convenience store, restaurant and pub and other shops.
