Generally we can't swap in school holidays. We are flexible around length of stay. Looking for weekends away in the south of England or South Wales. Longer stays anywhere in the UK. We'd love to see the northern lights so happy to consider a Winter exchange to Scandinavia or Iceland. We enjoy city breaks and walking holidays in Europe.


Oxfordshire Countryside, Chilterns and London an hour away, Great Britain

Before you read more please note we can't exchange in any school holiday times as we care for our grandson so we are only interested in exchanges outside of school holidays.

We live in a detached, house in friendly residential area of Sonning Common, a large village between Reading and Oxford. Sunny conservatory, dining room; large modern kitchen; two double bedrooms available for exchanges; modern bathroom with shower and bath; wood-burning stove useful on cooler evenings if the central heating is off. It is a comfortable and spacious modern house, on two floors, with a lovely rear garden. There are sunny and secluded areas to sit outside, BBQ and relax! However, there is little outdoor play space, so is not a good garden for very young children. In the house you will find lots of books, CDs, DVDs, games, maps and walking guides.

Nearby main line railway links make Sonning Common a good base for city trips to London, Windsor and Oxford. London is about 70 minutes by bus and then train. Reading train station is a 10 -15 minute drive from our house. Oxford is a 50 minute drive, Windsor a little less.

Local Attractions:
Our home, on the edge of the Chilterns, is an ideal place for active families, walkers, cyclists, mountain bikers and water-sports enthusiasts. There are local walks (woodland and open countryside ), cycle-friendly quiet lanes straight from the house, plus lots more places a short drive away.

Sonning Common is an excellent base on the edge of the beautiful Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Grey's Court National Trust property is an easy cycle from the house. Tourist sites/activities within an hour's driver include Henley for River Thames boat trips, Legoland, Caversham Lakes water-sports centre and Beale Park wildlife centre.

The area has a wide range of cultural, historical, literary links and places of interest including Reading Abbey ruins, Basildon Park, Blenheim Palace, Jane Austen's House, Windsor Castle, Oxford and Winchester. A little further afield, Stratford-on-Avon is 90 minutes by car.

Although there are regular buses to Reading Railway Station and town centre there is no other public transport from Sonning Common. Having a car is advisable. We can exchange cars if helpful.
