17thC Cumbrian cottage UK 2019 home swap
We live in a 17th century sandstone cottage with exposed stonework, oak beams and many original features but all modern conveniences, in a tiny village near Appleby, former county town of Westmorland.
There are fantastic views of the Pennine hills from our house and garden.
Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms with double beds and sharing a "Jack & Jill"
ensuite, and 1 with 2 single beds (with possibility of a 3rd single high level bed if needed). Downstairs we have a bathroom with bath and shower, dining room, living room and a dining kitchen which opens onto a small conservatory.
In the garden you will find a summerhouse and plenty of outdoor furniture + adults & childrens bikes with possibly a hot tub to enjoy in warmer weather.
Appleby lies in the Eden Valley, an ideal location for discovering the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and Scotland, all less than an hour`s drive from here. If you prefer outdoor activities there are great walks from our own door, riding stables in the village, a swimming pool and sports centre 2 miles away, and a golf course close by, plus of course water sports on the Lakes. Our nearest lake, (and in our view the most beautiful), is Ullswater, less than 30 minutes away by car.
2019 Open to offers in UK any time, possibly with family (with prior permission of course).....2 couples + 2 children, but usually just the two of us.
We are looking for a large property for a weekend 9 - 12 May 2019 for a special family celebration (our golden wedding). In exchange we can offer our own home for a longer period & happy to bring bedding & towels with us. We have been home exchanging since 1975 now, sometimes with our adult family and their own children and we feel this would be a wonderful way to celebrate a wonderful occasion. Hope you can help. (We are also Airbnb hosts so could offer hospitality at any time in exchange for accommodation if this is more suitable for you).
