*NOTE: WE HAVE BOOKED EXCHANGES UNTIL MAY 2013 ****We live in a 3 bedroom / 1 bathroom home in Staines quite near the River Thames. My wife and l are both non-smokers and like to keep our home clean and tidy. Our house has 3 bedrooms comprising two double bedrooms and a single bedroom. We have just one bathroom with a shower over bath arrangement. We have added a large conservatory to the back of the house. This extends the time the garden can be used in Autumn, Winter and Spring. We have a 60’ back garden (large by UK standards) and our house has an open (gas) fireplace, cable TV, ADSL broadband wireless internet access and all of the typical modern conveniences (but no dishwasher). We have one car (a 2005 5 door 5 speed manual Hyunda Getz) that we can include in the home exchange.

How do you get there?

You can get to our home: 1. From London Heathrow Airport using the Route 441 bus 2. From Central London using the train from London Waterloo to Staines Railway Station 3. From the rest of the UK via the motorways since we live near to the M25 Motorway
Since we live only 15 minutes drive south of London Heathrow Airport we are quite easy to reach.
