About our home

Our home is a traditional 1930's British semi-detached house which we have recently refurbished from top to bottom. We have a large open plan living room, kitchen and dining area to the rear of the house which is light and airy and overlooks our large secluded garden, it offers a really pleasant living space (with stove, large cable TV, digital piano, and hi-speed wireless broadband) and is great for entertaining when family and friends visit. There are bi-folding doors that open out on to a patio area, perfect for breakfast on sunny mornings. There is also a cosy living room at the front of the house with an additional television set and a double sofa bed for guests. There is a toilet downstairs as well as a modern house bathroom and separate toilet on the first floor. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor and a small study. We have a loft extension which provides a further double bedroom with its own ensuite shower and toilet. Our garage has been converted into a 'gym' with rowing machine, exercise bike and cross-trainer, we can also provide 2 bicycles for use. Our home is comfortable and spacious in a quiet and safe neighbourhood.


More about us

  1. We are Clare and Dave, a married couple with 3 sons in their early twenties (who all work, study and live away from home) We are both professionals, Dave is an Education consultant who travels extensively with his work, which has recently included regular visits to Australia. Clare is a senior manager in Arts Education. We have fixed up our first series of home exchanges in Australia from October this year through to April 2012. However we are also interested in possible swaps from August 2012 onwards and are open to suggestions - we would consider short breaks anywhere in Europe or longer trips to Australia or USA. Make us an offer!

    We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email and are keen to see how best we can facilitate their stay in the UK.

Leeds/Bradford airport is 8 miles away - Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool all operate budget flights to Europe

York, Howarth, Whitby, Newcastle,and the spectacular Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, Scotland and Wales, are all within a 2.5 hr drive, so we are perfectly located to see the beauty of the UK - and you are welcome to use our new, automatic, car to make the most of your visit!
