"The moment we could after lockdown, we headed to Garway Hill for a home exchange with Corinne & Colin. Their attractive Edwardian house and large gardens lie in a beautiful, remote valley with wonderful views across to Wales. We were lucky, as the sun shone every day we were there and so we were able to enjoy fabulous walks from the door. We know the area quite well and there is much to see & do in the area: the characterful towns of Monmouth, Hay-on-Wye, Abergavenny and Hereford are all within easy reach and we were able to make another visit to the amazing Kilpeck church.
Corrine & Colin were perfect exchange partners; they looked after our house perfectly and even cared for our cat. Would we exchange with them again? Like a shot!"

Highlight from the home swap:
- The view from the top of Garway Hill
- The comfort of Corrine & Colin's house
- The stunning, unspoiled countryside, with newborn lambs everywhere!
