House in London, Great Britain

PLEASE NOTE WE HAVE ARRANGED OUR HOLIDAYS UP TO AUGUST 2017 SO ARE NOW LOOKING FOR EXCHANGES FOR LATE 2017 ONWARDS.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN EXCHANGING OUR HOUSE FOR A HOLIDAY FLAT IN AN APARTMENT BLOCK OR SIMILAR. THANK YOU!

We live in a pretty terraced house in a Georgian square in central London. The square is very quiet with no through traffic but, once you turn the corner onto the main road, you find yourself in the middle of bustling London. The house has fantastic tube and bus links and is walking distance from a number of key tourist sights. Lambeth North (Bakerloo line) and Elephant and Castle (Northern line) tube stations are c. 5 minutes walk away. The bus stop for buses to Oxford Circus and beyond is round the corner. Destinations such as Regents Street, the Kings Road, the British Museum and the V&A can be reached by tube or bus in half an hour. The Houses of Parliament, the Southbank arts complex, Covent Garden, the London Eye, Tate Modern and Tate Britain are all walkable from the house. We are 20 minutes walk, or a short bus ride, from Waterloo station for trains out to Kew, Greenwich, Windsor etc. There are two local parks, with playgrounds, nearby and St James's park is just over the river. Our area has a couple of nice pubs that also do good food, plus a few other decent restaurants. There are supermarkets within walking distance. 
Our house is bright, neat and compact. It has a kitchen/dining room; front sitting room with sofa, chairs and television and a back sitting room with our computer, desk and books; a bathroom with bath and shower; three bedrooms; and a small patio garden. Of the three bedrooms, there is a main bedroom with a double bed, a children's room with bunk beds (we have yet to update the photo of this room - we no longer have a small children's bed), and a downstairs guest bedroom with a double bed and its own en suite shower room.
We are a family of four - mother, father, 9 year old son and 6 year old daughter. We are a considerate family and would treat your home with respect.
