More about us

  1. Our family is made up of Kit, Helen, Milly and Maya. Kit and Helen are both self employed lawyers and we mostly work from home, going into London when we need to. Our elder daughter Milly is 6 and loves being outside in the garden, painting, cycling, doing puzzles and reading. Our daughter Maya was born in December 2019 so she likes sleeping!

  2. We have done 2 really successful exchanges and are open to offers. We are available during English school holidays (see our calendar) and for UK exchanges we are also available at weekends.

  3. We all love cooking and eating - you will find plenty of variety in our kitchen cupboards!

Where is it?


We live in Bath, a 15 minute walk down into the historic city centre and to the train station (Bath Spa - 1hr 25mins to London).

The area our house is in is called Bear Flat, and has great local amenities including one of the top restaurants in Bath (Menu Gordon Jones - amazing Tripadvisor reviews...), a lovely local café (the Bear Pad), a really good all day kitchen/pub (Zazus Kitchen), an Italian deli, a supermarket, pharmacy, gym and wine shop.

Bath city is just a short walk away and has amazing architecture, shops and restaurants/theatre. We moved here in 2014 having lived in London for more than a decade and it has all the amenities you could want from a city whilst being compact, easily walkable and in beautiful countryside, all a very short walk or drive away. Bristol, a fascinating city, is just 15 minutes from Bath by train.

The area is really well set up for children, with several children's play areas within a short walk (including Alexandra Park, which has amazing views over the city), a city farm, off-road cycle paths out to country villages (and pubs!), indoor play areas for bad weather and child-friendly cafes in Bear Flat as well as the city.
