About our home

Hello, we are a family of two adults and 3 children.

Our country house dates back to 1820 and was originally a farmhouse. We have kept most of the original features. The house sits pretty much in the middle of England in a small village in the the countryside, yet half an hour from the City of Nottingham and 10 minutes from the fast train link that takes you to London in an hour and ten minutes. We chose this village for it's ease to get to London and central for all the major cities in England.

We are wanting to have a family holiday to Los Angeles from the 11th of February 2019 through to the 21st of February. We have travelled to LA many times before and would be happy in most areas, however we particularly love the beaches of Santa Monica and Malibu or the Hollywood hills. We also love Crystal Cove and Laguna beach. We would also prefer to swap our home with a family and not any large parties.

Our house comfortably sleeps 8 with 4 double beds and 1 family bathroom. The other rooms include a playroom, dining room, living room, kitchen, laundry room etc. We have a large driveway that could fit several cars and a large family garden with trampoline and goal posts etc. The village is quiet, comprising of families with amenities of several shops, pharmacy, butchers and cafes are 5 minutes away. It's very pretty and as you would imagine an English Country village yet with the joy of being only an hour from London.

I'm more than happy to explain the house and area in greater detail should you wish. Our dates are specific, 11 feb-21st feb so please do let me know if you are interested for these dates.

Many thanks, Jessica
