Looking for exchanges in 2019 anywhere in the world although we have a hankering for California. In 2017 we enjoyed exchanges in the West Indies and New Zealand, one in the spring and the other in the autumn. In earlier years we have exchanged south of Vancouver BC, the Australian Gold Coast, North Carolina and New Zealand (North and South Island)
Our cottage, at the foot of the Mendip Hills overlooking a lake, started life in the early 1800s, probably as a schoolroom since its first name listed on the deeds is The Old Schoolroom. Its rooms are spacious. There is a fully-fitted kitchen, dining room, glazed porch and comfortable sitting room on the ground floor while upstairs are two double bedrooms. We have a fully-tiled bathroom plus a shower room with second toilet. The garden is effectively two courtyards, secluded and very pretty - the second one (behind the garage) has a sofa swing. There is also a sofa swing in the first courtyard. Our car is a Peugeot 3008 and available to swap.
The cottage is in the oldest and prettiest part of the village, close to the parish church. It faces The New Inn which is the most attractive of three pubs in the village and has a garden overlooking Blagdon Lake, a well known spot for fly fishermen. This is a quiet neighbourhood - the biggest noise of the week is bell ringing practice on Tuesday evenings at the parish church behind us.
Blagdon, North Somerset, is 10-15 minutes from Bristol airport and around half an hour from Bristol or Bath. See Blagdon Village website (www.blagdon,org) or Wikipedia for more local details.
Basically, we are just looking for some nice adventures before age or ill health catches up with us!
