About our home


Our home is the ground floor conversion of a beautiful Victorian mansion which once belonged to a mill owner in the town of Alva. The house backs onto the Ochil Hills, hence its name - Edgehill. There are 3 spacious bedrooms, one with its own en suite, a large sunny sitting room, a country style kitchen and a hardwood conservatory with superb views of the surrounding hills. The front garden has a sweeping driveway and a large variety of mature trees. The side garden has 2 sunny patios and a lawn bordered by flowerbeds. The house has wonderful views of the hills and surrounding countryside. Our black Lab, Jasper, loves the location as there are lots of great walks on our doorstep as well as a lovely park just 5 minutes from the house.

More about us

  1. We are a retired head teacher and English teacher (still working but due to retire in June 2019!) with 2 grown up children and enjoy travelling, walking and exploring different cultures. We lived in Peru for 3 years, Jordan for 3 years and Orkney for 20 years. We have done several exchanges and have had a wonderful time in each of the places we have visited. We are always extremely impressed by the kindness and consideration of the people we exchange with and think it is a great way of seeing another country as a resident, rather than a tourist. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in the UK.

Where is it?


Ideally situated in central Scotland, Alva is a small village of around 5,000 inhabitants. It is less than an hour's drive from both Edinburgh and Glasgow while also being within easy reach of the Highlands. The village has everything you need for day-to-day living, and the nearby historic towns of Alloa and Stirling have shopping centres, restaurants, cinema, swimming pool and other entertainment venues. The area is ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits while still being within striking distance of the big cities.
