About our home

Our home is in Portishead which is a small coastal town situated just 12Km from Bristol on the Severn estuary and the Bristol Channel. Our home is a three bedroom, two bathroom chalet bungalow enjoying views of the Bristol Channel and Wales. There is a lounge, dining room and lovely conservatory in which to enjoy the afternoon and evening sunshine. In the study there is a PC with internet connection.

The university city of Bristol is only a short 25 minute drive with its Historical Docks and waterfront and excellent shopping at the new £500M ‘Cabot Circus’. Bristol boasts many fine restaurants and historic buildings - particularly the beautiful Georgian & Victorian area of Clifton and the Suspension Bridge. There are theatres, concert halls and live music venues catering for all tastes. There is an excellent train service to London (1.5 hours) from Temple Meads station and the Royal city of Bath with its Roman baths and brand new spa is also a short train ride from Bristol (12 minutes). The regency town of Cheltenham and the beautiful Cotswolds as well as the Welsh capital of Cardiff and the cathedral city of Wells are less than an hours drive.

The area is excellent for hiking, from gentle country strolls in the Cotswolds, Mendips or Quantock Hills to the challenging Brecon Beacons in Wales or Dartmoor in Devon, or fabulous coastal cliff top walks in Devon, Cornwall or Pembrokeshire. The North Devon and Cornwall coast is also excellent for surfing. Bicycles (2) available.

We are a newly retired couple in our late fifties and we have never done an exchange before. We are non-smokers and have no pets. We are an active couple who regularly play competitive sports (hockey, tennis and golf) and enjoy walking. Gordon worked for a large pharmaceutical company for 33 years and took early retirement at the end of 2008. Brenda is finishing her teaching career this summer. We have two sons, one in Cambridge and the other son and his family live in Stockholm (Sweden). As we now have a grandson over there we are particularly keen to exchange in central Stockholm in mid July this year or anytime thereafter.
