About our home

Our home is an individually built house with ample parking at the front, it benefits from enclosed garden to the rear, set within this most sought after Dorset village between Yeovil and Sherborne. Within walking distance we have an outstanding village shop, who just last week (Nov 2014) won the award for "Taste the difference" best retailer award in West Dorset! Also within a couple of minutes walk we have a really good children's play park :-), church, village hall, school, pre-school, also local pub called Rose and Crown traditional English food is servered and a Social Sports and Recreation Club. There are some beautiful county walks that can be taken in and around the village.

We are only a few minutes drive to YEOVIL where there are shops, many supermarkets, cinema, bowling, Health and Fitness Centre, extensive retail Shopping and larger outlets and establishments ie Frankie & Bennies/Pizza Hut, Restuarnts..everything you need and more! Also a short drive is the beautiful Abbey town of Sherborne, the most picturesque Abbey Town again offering everything the heart would desire and MORE supermarkets in Sherborne include Waitrose and Sainsburys. The region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling.

We live on a very quiet Lane with only 3 other houses, all houses are detached and well designed for privacy. In the front garden we have a 15ft Trampoline, and in the back garden.. ride on's, slides, patio table & chair, swinging Hammock etc. In the home, we have a large dinning table (seats 8-10 closed).

This is our new home :-) We are currently undergoing "detailed drawings" following approval of our application to build a full size porch, 2 new bedrooms and 2 new bathrooms! Also, complete renovation of all things existing to change to our personal liking. Once the work begins we will de-activate our home until the work is complete, changing our offering quite drastically! In the meantime, the home is perfectly well presented albeit with older fittings!


More about us

  1. We are a married couple Amita and Edward who met in Peru whilst out travelling! We have 3 very well behaved children (7, 6 and 4) but as we both absolutely LOVE travelling we would love to continue experiencing new places and adventures but this time more comfortably in the space of another home. We felt that the houseswap is best suited to our new needs, requirements and what a great way to experience a different country or county (to be a resident!) with 3 little ones it also sounds like an affordable way to take holidays, travel, also we have a lovely home we can offer in return. We have already completed 5 successful home exchanges (to include 5 weeks in Canada in 2012 and Denmark Christmas 2014) and we would welcome offers of exchange anywhere as long as it fits with school timetable no matter how long or short! we also love long weekend exchanges!

Where is it?


We are in the beautiful South West of England in Dorset which is a great location for access to the Jurassic coast and other many beautiful beaches (our closest is about 40min drive Weymouth) its also good for other local attractions that the area has to offer for example Exmoor National park, Stonehenge, Bath, Salisbury Cathedral. We are only a few miles from Sherborne and Yeovil where there are shops, restaurants and entertainment facilities. Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo (2hr by train) while road links are good along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.
