We will be away in the UK for New Year if anyone would like a non-simultaneous swap or last minute visit to London? We have previously rented our house out for this week to other Intervac folk which also worked well if you are happy to cat sit & can't do a non-simultaneous swap - offers very welcome.

We're open to offers for next summer - Sweden or Norway would be nice! Generally we like to try and do a long swap in the summer for 3 weeks if possible - can be a combination of places though. The last 2 years we have had great swaps to Greece and Spain.

A former shop on a lively market street in East London

We live in an unusual former cafe in the East End of London - what was the tiled cafe area is now our studio/living room, this leads onto a big kitchen and small backyard. We have two floors above with three bedrooms a (tiny!) terrace and our bathroom.
Our road is a market street so it is quite lively and although we have double glazing perhaps not for the noise sensitive! We have very friendly neighbours in the surrounding shops and cafes. We are within walking distance of both Victoria Park (one of the nicest in London) and the Olympic Park with all the great facilities there (including the Olympic pool). You can also walk to London Fields from here which has a heated Lido … very popular with all the family!
We're not near a tube but the overland train takes you quickly into central London or further East to Stratford.
