House in Orpington - Greater London, Great Britain

Dear Intervac friends, our house will be available for exchange for two - three weeks between August 10 and 2 September 2017.
 
Our house is located in Orpington, a suburb in South London benefiting from great transport links into central London - less than 30 minutes to Trafalgar Square. We have a good range of shops, restaurants and supermarkets in easy walking distance, and are also close to the M25 motorway with access to tourist sites in Kent and South-East England. The house itself is large Edwardian house which is comfortable and welcoming. We have internet access and have cable television in the living room and kitchen. There is also an X-Box in the living room. However, I have to be honest - the decoration is a bit old-fashioned.

There are 4 comfortable bedrooms which can accommodate up to 7 people. There are 2 bathrooms - one on the ground floor and one on the first floor.  We also have a lovely large, peaceful garden that's a really nice place to relax. There is an outside dining table for 6 and a BBQ. You are welcome to pick fruit and vegetables from the garden during your stay.

We have a friendly cat, Lucy, and would like our house exchange guests to feed her while we are away.

We have done 5 exchanges previously (2 with a different company) and all have been very successful and enjoyable. We look after other people's homes as we expect them to look after ours. We are happy to feed your pets - and have fed cats in the past.

About Our Family

We are a family of four - Mikhail and Elizabeth and 2 sons, Nik (19) and Henry (16). We have a cat, Lucy, who is friendly when she wants to be fed but a bit independent otherwise. Elizabeth works for a health charity and Mikhail is retired. Nik is at university and Henry at school.

The garden is large and a special and restful place to be. The decoration in the house is a bit old-fashioned, but it is very comfortable and clean.
