Notre maison

Ours is a detached bungalow with delightful garden, very well located for visits by road and rail to many attractive areas and popular historic cities and locations in Northern England and Wales. From our home in Marple, a village with a wide range of eateries, pubs and shops, there are walks for all tastes and abilities, some along country tracks and others along the intriguing canal system created in the 19th Century and still extensively used today. In every direction are beautiful views, many looking towards the Peak District, the National Park which is 'on our doorstep' and offers beautiful walking and cycling routes. Several interesting and useful bus routes are very close and train stations on 2 different lines are within a 15 minute walk. We are only 25 minutes by car from Manchester airport (low-cost routes available across Europe) and 15 minutes from the national motorway network. A visit to the coast, mountains and castles of North Wales or the lakes and fells of the Lake District can be an easy day trip. Of Britain's 15 National Parks, 5 are within 2 hours' drive.

Our house has spacious living and dining rooms as well as a good sized office. There are 2 double bedrooms(one with en-suite), sleeping up to 4 , as well as a comfortable folding bed for one person in the 'office', and a 'family bathroom'. There is a good sized conservatory, as well as large lounge, to relax in and a lovely garden with a summer house and space for outside eating. Bikes are available for your use and there are plenty of walking areas to explore nearby including some beside the charming local canals - we have maps to help you.

En savoir plus sur nous

  1. Married only 15 years ago, Tony and I wanted to make the most of our time together and so we retired at the same time. As so many people say, retirement is not dull! Our two families of 5 grown-up children, plus spouses and 6 grand-children help to keep us amused. We enjoy working as well as relaxing in our garden where we have many bird visitors. We like to walk and cycle in our local area and to do so when on holiday. Our interest in live music and theatre takes us into Manchester regularly to enjoy a wide range of performers .

    Having particularly enjoyed holidays in which we lived less as tourists than as residents, we have greatly enjoyed our 6 years as home exchangers. We also know that our visiting partners have appreciated living for a short while in our lovely home area. Our first experiences of exchanging were from January to May 2011 when we were involved in a series of really wonderful exchanges with partners in California, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa during a Round the World trip. We have since had many further excellent exchanges in France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, the USA and the UK. Finally, we have family in South Korea, who you can see in the photo when they visited us, and we have visited them sometimes on the way to further home exchanges in Australia and New Zealand.

  2. Tony is a retired headteacher and Judith was involved in IT marketing

  3. We love culture of many kinds, the natural world, history, interesting people, social justice, travel, time with family and friends, helping those less fortunate than we are and protection of the environment for the benefit of future generations.





Marple centre (5 minutes walk) offers a good range of shops, restaurants, pubs and bars, a delightful old cinema, swimming pool, library, churches, 2 parks, etc and its 2 railway stations both link you to Manchester (20 minutes) and one gives access to trains to Sheffield. A 15 minute walk takes you to the charming old village of Marple Bridge with more good options for eating out.
Manchester offers a lively cosmopolitan city centre with music and theatre, museums and art galleries as well as its much admired 19th century architecture and excellent shopping. Other easily accessible cities are historic Chester and York, Liverpool, Leeds and Sheffield. The area is rich in historic houses; three "stately home gems", Tatton Hall, Dunham Massey and Lyme Hall (film setting in Pride and Prejudice) each being 15 to 30 minutes away by car.

The area offers a variety of landscapes in which to walk, cycle or drive; rural Cheshire to the South and the moors and dales of the Derbyshire Peak very nearby to the East. In all directions you will find interesting villages with quaint buildings and characterful pubs!

Several very good ones are well worth trying.
