This home swap experience was sent in by Home Base Holidays member and very experienced home exchanger, Marguerite.
"This is the second year in a row we've arranged a Christmas holiday home swap. I'd usually think about home swapping in the spring or summer, but a couple of years ago we received a very tempting home exchange offer in Suffolk for a couple of weeks before Christmas - we took up the offer and enjoyed it so much that we arranged another Christmas exchange in 2019!
One of our favourite places is Norfolk, thanks to the beauty of the coast and the wildlife. We were very lucky that Sue and her husband from Sheringham were happy to exchange in December. Their home was so warm, comfy, full of character and right next to the sea. Sheringham itself was a delight with its Christmas lights and lovely little shops and such friendly locals.
We'll definitely be looking for another Christmas home swap this year. In the meantime we have so much lined up, next week we have a home exchange in Ulverston (Lake District) thanks to Steve and Jean, followed by home exchanges in France, East coast, and the Peak District ...and hopefully still time to pack lots more in! Thanks to Home Base Holidays for making this possible."
