White Gables home swap

Our 5 bedroom house was completed in 2012 and is light, spacious and comfortable. Downstairs there is a large, open plan kitchen, dining room, sitting room and play room plus a utility room, shower room and fifth bedroom/study. There are french doors front and back with easy access to the large and sunny garden which is safe and enclosed. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with super-king size bed, en suite bathroom and dressing room; double bedroom with en suite shower room; two single rooms and separate bathroom. We have one cat who is very friendly and can happily go to the local cattery if needed.

The house is wonderful in the summer with a relaxed outdoor feel, and in the winter the underfloor heating and cosy wood burner make it the perfect place to snuggle down with a good book.

About the location

Motcombe is a thriving rural village with community shop/post office with a small cafe, pub, church, village hall, play park and sports field. There are lovely country walks on the doorstep. We are only 5 minutes away from Shaftesbury, a pretty Saxon hilltop town with good cafes, pubs, restaurants, bakeries, delis and a market on Thursday mornings. Nearby Gillingham has a main line train station direct to London Waterloo. There are plenty of supermarkets, including a large waitrose, within a short drive, all of which will deliver groceries if needed.

There are a wealth of activities within easy reach such as Stourhead, Old Wardour Castle, Longleat safari park, Moors Valley Country Park and Honeybrook farm. The beautiful Jurassic Coast is about 60 minutes away which offers stunning scenery and walks as well as some lovely beaches. Bristol, Bath and Salisbury offer great shopping and entertainment and London is an easy 2hr train ride away.
