Our first home swap: a wonderful holiday in the Cotswolds


Staycation swap: weekend markets & walks in the Cotswolds

"It was our first home swap holiday and we really couldn't have wished for a better experience. All our communications with our home swap partners, Anna and Tom, went so smoothly and they looked after our house perfectly.

Their home is beautiful and is in such a lovely location with wonderful views over Stroud & the Cotswolds. It was easy to walk into town, which has a great offering of shops, places to eat and drink coffee. There was a fabulous farmers market on Saturdays and lots of lovely independent shops to explore. Oh, and we found the residents of Stroud to be so nice and friendly!

Anna and Tom's home was the perfect base to explore the beautiful Cotswolds countryside. We enjoyed lovely walks along the canal and hikes up into the hills. We had plans to visit Bristol, Bath and Oxford, but the local area offered everything we could want without having to go far. It made for a very relaxing two weeks of walking and exploring.

I'd highly recommend Anna and Tom and would love to exchange with them again!"
