About our home

Our home is a beautifully, newly renovated house with a stunning 2 bed barn adjacent to the house. It is down a very quiet lane in a small hamlet, close to Reading and Pangbourne in West Berkshire. The nearest main line train station is only 4 miles away and takes you into London within 35 minutes.
We have 2 great pubs within walking distance. Vibrant restaurants are a short taxi or drive away in Pangbourne, Yattendon and Goring.
For the countryside lovers, it is quite literally on the doorstep.
We are ideally looking to spend a few weeks over Xmas/winter in The Algarve or Spain. For anyone with relatives in the U.K., this is an ideal base for visiting friends and family.
We have a lovely little cat, Tinkerbell who would be in our home and would need a twice daily feed and litter tray seen to please. We also have 4 alpacas who are kept in a field about a 10 minute walk away. House guests are welcome to feed them daily or we can organise neighbours to.

More about us

  1. We're a couple in our fifties, looking to slow things down a little and explore more of the world.

  2. We're both professionals with own businesses and lucky enough to be able to take time away at this point in our careers.

  3. We love to immerse ourselves into the local culture and community and feel home swapping is an ideal way to achieve this.

Where is it?


Ideally located in Southern England within easy reach to the Capitol, Bath, Bristol, Oxford and the charming Cotswolds.
We are approximately and hour and a half from the coast with easy access to the Continent and Channel Islands.
Furthermore, we are well positioned for easy access to many International airports.

Buzzy restaurants
We have great restaurants in the local area - many on the river Thames such as Goring-on-Thames and Pangbourne-on-Thames.
Cool bars
Nearby Yattendon boasts a working brewery/bar called The West Berks Brewery - they serve great home made pizzas and burgers. It is very popular with families. You can also book a tour of the working brewery itself. The very popular town of Reading has many bars and restaurants and is less than 10 minutes by train. Goring-on-Thames has a trendy bar/restaurant in one of the most beautiful locations on the river called The Copa Club. We happen to getting married in its adjacent hotel, The Swan. A 'must visit' whilst you're here.
Cozy cafés
Staying very local, there's a great cafe (The Pantry) for cyclists and walkers alike in the most quintessentially English village of Yattendon. Goring on Thames has a lovely little cafe called Piermontes that serves delicious home made cakes.There are also a couple of new cafes in Pangbourne that are well worth a visit.
Retail therapy
The famous market towns of Henley-on-Thames and Marlow host many small independent retail shops and cafes. Of course London is just a 35 minute train ride away too. For a shopping mall, you're best headed into 'The Oracle' in Reading.
Bit of culture
Just hop on the train to visit London with its wealth of theatres, restaurants and beautiful architecture. There are also Highclere Castle, Windsor Castle, Blenheim Palace,West Berkshire Museum all within an hour by car.
Walks in the park
The abundance of countryside should be enough to keep the keen walker or cyclist happy and is right on our doorstep.
Spot of exercise
Cycle 5 minutes or walk 15 minutes to our lovely pubs in Stanford Dingley (The Boot or Bull) or for the more energetic, we can recommend many walks and cycle routes. There is a cool outside swimming pool with adjacent bar/restaurant in nearby Reading (The Lido).
Day tripping
Henley on Thames, Blenheim Palace, Highclere Castle, Windsor Castle, Windsor Great Park, Virginia Water Lakes, Marwell Zoo, Stonehenge, Basildon Park...and so many others too many to mention.
