    Both are well behaved and well mannered (well most of the time!!) and always treat other peoples things with respect.

Where is it?


Our village, Helmdon, is a small English village which has an excellent traditional village pub (The Bell) where a warm welcome will be guaranteed and a beautiful village church.

In the summer you can watch our cricket team fight it out with other local villages (I only mentioned as I play for them and we could do with some more fans!)

The town of Brackley is only 5 miles away and has a variety of restaurants including traditional English fish and chips! Brackley regularly holds a farmers market where organic produce can be purchased directly from the farmers.

How about driving a british army tank during your stay? just 2 miles up the road is Tanks ALot (www. tanks-alot. co. uk) you can drive a 56 ton tank over a car (they have 65 to choose from!) try to beat the SAS woodland patrol challenge, fire an 18th century musket and mortar, or "swim" an amphibious truck?

My son and I are season ticket holders at the current premier league football champions Chelsea FC (www. chelseafc. com) so if we exchange during the season you are welcome to use these (1 adult 1 child only)

Woburn Safari Park is 40 minutes away (www. woburnsafari. co. uk)

There are two local golf courses which we could arrange for you to play, we can also arrange fishing locally (Course Fishing- We have the equipment!)

If you wish to be pampered, there is an excellent Spa hotel which is only 6 miles away (www. whittleburyhall. co. uk)

For horse racing fans, Towcester Race Course.
