Hello from Kevin and Jan. We are both recently retired from Marketing and Supplies and from teaching and would now like to travel extensively. 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 are non smokers, don't have pets and look after our apartment with great care and would do the same with yours.
This is our second home and so is available to either rent or use as a non simultaneous exchange.
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.

Harnham, where the apartment is situated is in a select area of Salisbury providing historical walks over Old Harnham Bridge to Salisbury's Cathedral Close and another walk via the town path through the water meadows where Constable painted his famous picture of Salisbury Cathedral.
