About our home

Our stunning Victorian terrace was completely renovated by ourselves in 2010. We won the ITV show 'May the Best House Win' in May 2012 and in 2016 we have converted the loft room to a large double bedroom and wet room.

It consists of a modern interior teamed with period features. The large family bathroom has twin sinks, a modern shower unit and a roll top bath. We also have a log and a gas fire for the cold winter evenings. With its open plan spaces, extendible dining room table, folding sliding doors into the garden and ambient lighting, the house is set up for entertaining. It has a landscaped garden including a large decked area for BBQ's and a log cabin housing a fully equipped gym that can also accommodate two further sleepers.

The house swap includes our cat Millie who is very sociable and will love your care and attention. She is used to cat sitters and living in shared houses so she is fine with strangers. She needs minimal input as there is a cat flap and she can be left with biscuits so you don't need to be back for any time to feed her. She does however like a fussing.

We are minutes away from the vibrant Mill Road area of Cambridge that is lined with an eclectic selection of cafes and restaurants. We are apx. one mile from the historic city centre where you can visit the famous universities and spend a lazy afternoon punting down the River Cam.
