About our home

We have lovingly crafted our peaceful family home over the past five years to create a warm and welcoming, uniquely handmade space. Our house reflects our creative nature and much of the furniture and furnishings have been made or adapted by us.
We live here with our six month old baby so the space is set up with a comfortable double bedroom and nursery room, which can be used as a single bedroom for older children/adults. We're both designers and have converted one of the rooms in the house into a workshop that houses sewing machinery and a light airy space for drawing, painting, writing etc.


More about us

  1. We live here with our son, Kit who is six months old. James is originally from Lincolnshire and Alexa the Lake District - we love getting out and about in the countryside.

  2. James is an architect and Alexa teaches design at Lincoln University and also runs a small business making footwear from reclaimed materials. We're both passionate about sustainable design.

  3. We love meeting new people and like the idea of a home swap being a great way to make some new friends.

Where is it?


This is a friendly neighbourhood where a short walk to the nearby shops will probably result in chats with dog walkers and waves to kids playing outside.
Situated a ten minute walk from Lincoln's stunning cathedral, castle and historical, cobbled 'uphill', this is the perfect location to explore some of the UK's most dramatic heritage (and, incidentally, pick up delicious bread, groceries and tasty coffee!). We're a 2.5 hour train ride from London and 4 hours from Edinburgh so you could use this as a base to get to know more of the country. If walking in the countryside is more your thing, the Lincolnshire Wolds are just a short drive away and The Peak District and Derbyshire Dales are also close by. Why not include a trip to Paris or Brussels via the Eurostar as well!

Buzzy restaurants
The Cheese Society is always a treat! Wander down the high street for a good choice of restaurants and bars.
Cool bars
There's a great selection of traditional British pubs. The Strugglers Inn, situated at the base of the castle wall, is the most atmospheric (around fifteen minutes walk).
Cozy cafés
Bailgate Deli serves excellent coffee, pastries, sourdough bread and amazing vegan food.
Retail therapy
Head to Nottingham for a full-on shopping day, or browse the small, independent shops on Lincoln's Bailgate.
Bit of culture
Take a tour of the Cathedral roof, walk the Castle wall or find out about Lincoln's Roman heritage in The Collection Museum and Gallery. The National Centre for Craft and Design is a 30 minute drive away. If literature is your thing, travel to Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon and to the Yorkshire home of the Bronte sisters (both 2 hours by car).
Walks in the park
Lincoln's Arboretum is a leafy Victorian park just ten minutes stroll away.
Spot of exercise
Swim in the nearby swimming lake on the south of the city, cycle the many canal paths, try kitesurfing at Cleethorpes.
Day tripping
Nottingham, York, Leeds, London, The Peak District.
