“We have just returned from a very successful exchange with Garrie and Margaret. They have a beautiful home and garden area which we enjoyed relaxing in. They were very kind and generous and left us lots of information and a recommended list of things to do and places to see. Their home is on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale AONB and close to Harrogate, Leeds and York. We easily found enough to do for the time we were there. Communication with Garrie and Margaret was excellent. They took very good care of our home and we would highly recommend an exchange with them if you have the opportunity. Mervyn & Adele ”
