“Gorgeous, clean and comfortable home outside of Edinburgh. The bus to Edinburgh city center stops right out front the house so visiting the area was easy, and the town of Haddington was very cute. The home was super clean and Ruth was a very thoughtful host and gave us lots of information on local places to see and pointers for getting around. I highly recommend!”

About our home
****LOOKING FOR A SWAP IN APRIL 2023 - PARIS, ROME, LISBON, MADRID BUT OPEN TO OTHER DESTINATIONS****
Our lovely 3 bedroom detached home is modern, cosy and comfortable and well laid out with a spacious interior and bright and airy throughout. The lounge features windows looking out on to two aspects and the south facing kitchen/diner to the opposite side offers another perfect space to relax and dine with sliding patio doors to the south facing garden which is sunny all day. The ground floor also features a WC and utility room with washing machine. Upstairs the main bedroom with king size bed features built in wardrobes and an ensuite with shower and there are two other bedrooms, one with a single bed and one with a sofa bed. There is also a family bathroom with bath and shower.
Our house has all the modern conveniences you would expect and our garden is a lovely space in which to relax and unwind with a 6 seater dining set, L shaped sofa, bbq and firepit. Our daughter's trampoline and gymnastic bar are not the most attractive but provide hours of fun for any child visiting and they will also have the use of a bike and two different scooters.
Our well equipped kitchen has an induction hob with separate oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer as well as many appliances and utensils. Our most recent purchase which we love is the Ninja soup maker which also does sauces, smoothies and milkshakes and for coffee lovers we have a cafetiere and percolator.
There is parking for two cars in our drive/car port and we would be happy to offer one of our cars for use if that would be of interest. We also have two adult bikes, it takes less than 10 minutes to cycle into the town.

More about us
We are Steven, Ruth, Ella and Alfie. Steven is Scottish and I am Northern Irish, we're in our 40s. Ella is our 7 year old daughter and Alfie is our 13 year old Yorkshire terrier.. We love living in Haddington, it has a really nice, friendly atmosphere and is ideally located within the beautiful East Lothian countryside and with easy access to Edinburgh.
Steven is a motion designer and Ruth works at a local University and is also training to become a Counsellor. We did our first swap in December 2022 and it couldn't have been better. We are keen to travel as much as we can and feel like this is an exciting way to do it. The idea of others getting to experience our lovely home and all that the area has to offer makes us feel happy too.
We love nature and the outdoors - walking, cycling and wild swimming at the local beaches. We enjoy going for coffee and cake and lunches around East Lothian. Steven is a (very) keen golfer and member of Gullane Golf Club and Ruth enjoys cooking, fitness and meditation.
