About our home

Our home is a spacious converted barn, consisting of a large kitchen/dining room with high quality fittings and appliances, There is a dining hall, a computer room with lots of books. A conservatory garden room with views over the courtyard and patio area where we enjoy the barbecue, outside seating. We have a large modern living room with a wood burner. There are two Bedrooms, one has a super king bed and an en-suite bathroom. The other has a double bed with a separate bathroom. (with bath and shower)
The feature of the barn are the vaulted ceilings and the gallery landing with views over the open countryside to sit and watch the sun go down. Outside, as well as the courtyard there is a large garden laid to lawn with fruit trees and swings and a slide. We also have a small cottage (The Stables) opposite the barn which has two bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom. This is advertised as a holiday home but is also open to the option of a non simultaneous exchange.

If an exchange is made with the barn there is a possibility that guests may be in the Stables.


More about us

  1. We are Ceri and John, a married couple. We have both recently taken early retirement from work and with the prospect of more available time we are looking forward to of being able to travel more freely.
    We have done several home exchanges in the past. We have always found it to be a fantastic way to experience living in a place as a resident rather than a tourist and we have met some lovely people.
    We have worked hard to convert the barn into a lovely home and we would respect your home as we do our own.

  2. We have been invited to attend our best friends daughter’s wedding in Cayucos, California on 26th September 2020. We would like to combine this trip with a holiday to California where we spent our honeymoon in 1980!
    We have re-joined the home exchange program after an absence of a couple of years. Prior to this we had many successful exchanges. We would like to invite our exchange partner to stay with us in our home before we leave to get to know you a little better and explain how things work.
    We also have a two bedroomed cottage called ‘The Stables’ across the courtyard. This is rented out as a holiday cottage and could also be available for a non simultaneous exchange.

Where is it?


Our home is not really in a town it sits way back at the edge of a pretty english village, just over one mile to our nearest town of Acle, which has all the usual amenities. We have lovely walks and drives around the house and really good pubs in most surrounding villages.
Norwich is a picturesque market city (population 300,000) steeped in history. The cathedral and castle both date from the 11th Century. We are just 10 miles from the city centre which is bustling and vibrant with shopping galore, quality cafes and restaurants, arts and architecture.Something for everyone in fact. From cobbled streets and Tudor houses to the latest shopping mall experience city lovers will not be disappointed. London is only 1h 50 mins away by train, Cambridge an hour and 10 mins and the rural and coastal calm and tranquility of north Norfolk, with some lovely short or longer walks (and birdwatching opportunities), is also very accessible. We love living here and feel sure that you will enjoy your stay here too as it offers a great way to experience this lovely and historic area of England. See for more of a feel.
