It has two sofas in the living area and three in the lounge, so plenty of room for relaxing.

It has all modern conveniences and is extremely comfortable to live in.


More about us

  1. We are Chris and Maureen Ryan and have recently retired from teaching.
    We have four children, one of whom presently lives in Guernsey, where we have visited for the last two years.
    We love traveling and are keen to consider an exchange with the view of using the home as a base for further travel to Europe.
    Once again we would like to go to Guernsey and explore countries we have not yet been to. Being close to London has the advantage of access to budget airlines as well as allowing us to further enjoy what London or nearby places have to offer.
