Neighbourhood

We are surrounded by a network of footpaths which are perfect for those who enjoy walking, cycling or horse-riding. Pheasants, deer, badgers and buzzards are all common sights as you wander down the lanes. Activities to do nearby: Carp fishing Horse riding Kart racing (at the Mansell race-track associated with Formula One Champion Nigel Mansell). Skydiving Parachute jumping and Paragliding Clay-pigeon shooting (associated with Ed Ling who won a bronze medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics) Golf Suggestions: Browse the local Farmers’ Market in Taunton, discover 400 million years of history in the Museum of Somerset or wander through the many antique shops in Honiton. Visit the Cathedral in Exeter, the Roman Baths in Bath, the Bishop’s Palace in Wells or soak-up the atmosphere of the ancient stones at Stonehenge. Explore the caves at Wookey Hole or Cheddar Gorge or go fossil-hunting at Lyme Regis which forms part of the Jurassic Coast. Stroll through the medieval manor house and gardens at Cothay Manor, near Wellington, or visit one of the numerous National Trust properties in the vicinity. After a busy day shopping or sight-seeing, unwind by having dinner at a traditional English country pub. Whatever you like to do, our home is the perfect base for you!

Getting around

The house is very rural and a car is a necessity, but we are less than 15 minutes from the M5 motorway and conveniently placed for exploring the South West. London is just over 2 hours away by train from Taunton and there are airports at Exeter (30 minutes) and Bristol (1 hour).

Member description
We are a professional couple (ex-services and civil-servant) and enjoy socialising and home-renovation. My husband is a keen amateur photographer and I enjoy walking in our wonderful Devon lanes. We don’t have any children but do have a gorgeous ginger cat (so our home isn’t suitable for anyone with pet allergies). As our home is very rural we would like something different for the exchange, especially somewhere with a sea/water view. We are also interested in city-centre locations with easy access to restaurants etc. We prefer to avoid the school holidays if possible.
