About Us

We are both teachers and have house swapped some years ago. Tim is 44 and works in a local comprehensive (11-18 years) and Helen is 45 and works in a local private school. Our children are Jake, 13, and Alice, 11.
We moved here 5 years ago and love the area.

More about us

Previously we have lived in areas as diverse as Japan, Yorkshire and London but chose to come back to this part of the country to settle and educate our children here as we both love it so much.
The house is comfortable and homely. The location is excellent and we have no plans to move away from such a nice area.
