Shown below are a few samples of home swap offers available for a Spring swap (click location to view home exchange offer):
Market Harborough, Leicestershire home swap: Longbridge Hall is a lovely, old, Grade-2 listed Victorian school, built in 1873. It was converted to a stylish, spacious, comfortable home in 2006, combining the original character of the Victorian school with contemporary design. It is located in Church Langton, a picturesque village in South Leicestershire, in the middle of England. It is four miles from Market Harborough (rated by The Sunday Times at 34 in the top 50 towns to live in, in England). The village is surrounded by typical 'shire-county' countryside. Locally there are excellent village pubs, country- and canal-side walks, and a fine cricket pitch — you can experience life in a typical English village.
Wimborne, Dorset home swap: Leonis is a 1930s chalet-style four bedroom house one mile from Wimborne town centre and 10 miles from Poole and Bournemouth; located in a quiet road next to country lanes and local country pubs.
Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire home swap: The house is part of a converted Baptist Chapel. Hebden Bridge is a small market town in the Pennines. Dubbed 'the 4th funkiest town in the world (honestly,)' and 'the Hampstead of the north', it has a relaxed, easy going attitude with great bars, shops and eateries.
London home swap: A stylish Victorian house located in a trendy part of London and within easy reach of key parts of central, north and east London; one minute walk from the big market on Walthamstow High Street.
Cheltenham, Gloucestershire home swap: A four-hundred year old thatched cottage which retains its cosy character - lots of beams and two fireplaces with cast iron stoves. Cheltenham is the gateway to the Cotswolds, a lovely town with excellent shops, restaurants and a lively cultural scene including several international festivals (Literature, Music, Jazz, Science) as well as the famous Cheltenham Gold Cup Horse Racing Festival.
