Hello from Kevin and Jan.
We are both recently retired from Marketing and Supplies and from teaching and now we would like to travel and make friends worldwide through home exchange. We have done this successfully exchanging homes with people from Boston, Sheffield New England, Ellesmere Shropshire, Chester, Melbourne and Townsville Australia where our daughter now lives.
We have enjoyed our stay in Townsville immensely and would like to do another home exchange there and also visit Cairns, Noosa and areas near by. We would also like to do short breaks within the UK and get to know our own country even better and also short breaks to Holland, Germany, France and many more European countries. We would also like to travel to South Africa, USA, Canada, the list is endless so please get in touch.
We are non smokers and don't have pets. We treat our home with great care and would do the same with yours.
Salisbury is a beautiful historical city, famous for its Cathedral and proximity to Stonehenge, but also ideal for touring South-West England, the New Forest with the lovely New Forest ponies, and Bournemouth and Poole, with their wonderful sandy beaches.
This is also an ideal location for historians with Bath and Winchester on its doorstep; for film buffs who like visiting film locations e.g. Wilton House where 'The Madness of King George' was filmed and Lacock where 'Pride and Prejudice' was filmed; artists love coming here as Constable and Turner painted many of their picures in the Cathedral Close; golfers have a choice of coursesto practice their skills and theatre enthusiasts can enjoy plays performed at our wonderful Salisbury Playhouse or travel to London which is only 1 hour 10 mins. journey by train to enjoy London productions.
Our detached family home has two double bedrooms with very comfortable double beds, one with an ensuite and a further family bathroom and one bedroom which has been converted into a study with computer and internet access.
On the ground floor there is an entrance hall with a downstairs cloakroom, kitchen, dining room and lounge.
The kitchen is fitted with all modern facilities including dish washer, fan oven, grill with separate oven, microwave, gas hob, refrigerator and deep freeze.
A utility room leads off the entrance hall and this houses a washing machine, drying area and a further deep freeze. This room leads into the garage where bicycles and barbecue equipment are stored.
Our home has a two tiered rockery garden with two lawns at the back of the house and two small lawns at the front. Adjacent to this is a driveway with parking for two cars.
Our detached home is set in a quiet cul de sac with views over the downs, where the Bishops grazed their sheep in the olden days. We are very conveniently situated, close to all amenities.
Salisbury is easily accessed by air from Bournemouth and Southampton airports as well as London airports.
We also have an apartment listed on the Seniors home exchange website No.4924, which we sometimes use for home exchange or sometimes rent to holiday makers.
Kevin and I would love to hear from you so do please get in touch. We promise to reply to every request received.
Jan and Kev
