A four-bedroom family home in the leafy suburbs of Caversham, just over the River Thames from Reading with fast links to London, Windsor, Henley, Oxford and Bath.
Caversham has several restaurants, pubs and shops including a supermarket which are all within walking distance. Reading centre is only about 10 minutes drive away and has a large shopping centre, with cafes, restaurants and cinema along the river.
We're ideally located for visiting the South East of England. Reading Train Station is a 10 minute bus/taxi ride away with direct access to London (25 mins), Oxford (25 mins) and Bath (1 hour). It's within 30 minutes drive of Windsor and 15 minutes drive to Henley-on-Thames. Heathrow Airport is also about 40 minutes drive away. We would be happy to do a car swap as well.
We have 2 double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and 2 children's bedrooms. We also have a pull out bed and spare mattress so could sleep 8 if guests wanted to stay. There are three bathrooms, a playroom, lounge with woodburner, laundry room, study, dining room/sitting room and kitchen looking out over the back garden. The garden is child-friendly with a trampoline.
We are a family of four with 2 girls aged 12 and 9. We have bikes and you can easily cycle out to the countryside from our house and a house full of toys and games. There are 2 parks nearby and lots of country pubs and walks.
We're looking for somewhere to house swap for February 2015 somewhere near a ski resort in Europe.
