We need pet care - a Labrador but she can be left for five hours or longer if only occasionally and our daughter lives down the road so can help out for any overnights or weekends although she works during the day.

House in Taplow near Windsor , Great Britain

Our beautiful home is close to Windsor and about an hour from London to the East and an hour from Oxford to the West. The house dates from 1868 and is in an acre of land which includes a lovely heated swimming pool and a grass tennis court. Burnham Village with local shops and a small market is 1mile down the road and Maidenhead is about 2 miles the other way.Our home is great for older kids (not little ones as the pool is not enclosed) .
We have a 5yr old Labrador called Holly and 5 hens so you can have fresh eggs every day! Holly needs a walk in the morning and cannot be left all day. If you want to be out all day it would need to be at a weekend when one of our daughters or a 'Borrow my Doggy' helper can be there with her.
Everyone who we exchange with loves the house and the dog We have never had any problems.  
We have lodgers Monday-Friday in 2 bedrooms but they do not have access to any of the rest of the house or garden. We have a weekly cleaner who takes care of their rooms and changes the bed linen.
This means we have two double rooms available for exchange.

About Our Family

We are husband and wife , Edward and Judy plus possibly our youngest child Paul aged 17yrs. Our other children have left home and we let out their rooms on a Monday-Friday basis although the lodgers don't have use of the rest of the house. We are a sporty family and enjoy swimming, ski-ing, cycling and tennis. We love animals so we'd be happy to look after yours and give them lots of love and cuddles as we hope you'd do for ours. We have Holly who is 4 years old - a yellow Labrador and four hens.
Our house is very big so we have a cleaning lady who comes once a week and she can answer any questions you might have.
We live in a lovely area, it's quiet but not far from interesting places like Windsor and Eton, London and Oxford. We love food and cooking and there are some famous restaurants near us such as The Fat Duck and The Waterside Inn.
I am a writer and have published a number of books on NLP and I am an NLP Trainer and Kids Practitioner. Edward is a Geologist.

Lifestyle

We love food and sport and we're quite relaxed. We like to read, walk, cycle and cook.
