“This summer 2015, we have had a very successful house and car exchange with Jody and her family. Everything went very well, a fully equipped and lovely decorated house. Everything was very well prepared for our welcome and our stay. The house is at the level and more as promised by the presentation and pictures. Specially our kids were impressed by the different play area and the bedrooms, all full of toys games and books. The garden is also a lovely place to stay relax after a day of visit. Location of the house in a quiet neighborhood not more than 5mn to the market and 10mn to town center is definitively a plus. The Cheltenham city is a very interesting city to visit and stay due to is location between Oxford and Bristol in the middle of the Cotswolds with its wonderful village. Last but not least, Jody and her family left our house beautifully clean. All in all a wonderful exchange - we would highly recommend.”
Jody's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We really enjoyed staying in Jody and Simon's home. We felt home from the first day, our children loved it too and enjoyed playing inside and in the nice little garden, eating blackberries and even exchanging with their nice neighbours. The house is very well equipped with a great decoration and very children friendly. It is close to everything in town and its good location allowed us to go discovering the Cotswolds area and its typical villages, Bath, London, Oxford, not forgetting some hiking in the local hills. We've had friendly and easy contacts with Jody and Simon from the start, they have arranged everything to accommodate their home and car for our family of 5. We would highly recommend a swap with Jody, Simon and their children!”
Where is it?
We are situated in the Regency Town of Cheltenham Spa which is known as the "Gateway to the Cotswolds". We are a 10-15 minute walk to the town centre where there are great shops and restaurants. There are two large supermarkets within a ten minute walk. Oxford, Bristol, Bath and Cardiff, as well as Shakespeare's Stratford, are all within a 90 minute drive and London is just over 2 hours away by either car and train. We live less than ten minutes walk to the train station where there are regular and direct trains to London and the rest of the UK. The picturesque Cotswold villages of Broadway, Bibury, Bourton on the Water and Stow on the Wold are all within a 45 minute drive away.
We love living in Cheltenham - it is a beautiful town with great architecture and is very family friendly and with a number of fantastic parks and an open air Lido swimming pool. In fact the Telegraph newspaper voted Cheltenham as the top place in Britain to raise a family in 2014 (hhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/propertyadvice/11072925/Britains-top-20-best-places-to-raise-a-family.html)
The Cotswold Farm Park and Cotswold Wildlife Park are also a short drive away which are ideal for young families.
