“We stay one week ( 4 adults and 5 children) end august- start september, good weather. Just a little bit cold and rainy at the end. It\'s a big and lovely house, with space outside for children and renewed rooms. It\'s nearby a farm, but well separated, you can see cows and a horse from windows. And in the early morning and late evening we saw even hares, fagians, squirrels...You need a car for markets and pubs. We used bikes, but remember: up and down the hills! Many footpaths around for walking in the fields. We visit Stratford upon Avon three times, Warwick, Hatton Locks, Kenilworth Castle...and Oxford, returning to London. Goulding family is kind and give us some sheets with home and nearby instructions. We contact them for questions during our simultaneous swap and always they answer friendly. Brian the cat is lovely with everyone. And our little children jump up and down on the big trampoline. Very positive swap! Sara”
