Trip report: fantastic home exchange in London

Columbia Road Flower Market in East London“James and Maria Jose have a lovely home not far from Bethnal Green tube . It is on two levels with two sitting rooms and surprisingly quiet for being just behind the main road. We arrived at our home swap home to find a welcome bottle of wine in the fridge, useful instructions on how everything worked and ideas of where to eat and visit in the area.

We walked to Brick Lane for a meal the first night, and found the area buzzing with activity. On Sunday morning we walked to Columbia Road for breakfast and a look around the flower market and shops, and later on we also walked to Victoria Park for a picnic as we had great weather. The area has a lot going on and its pretty easy to get around by bus, tube and train, but also there’s plenty nearby to visit on foot.” Rachael

Home exchange highlights:

  1. A visit to Columbia Road flower market
  2. Sunbathing in Victoria Park
  3. Local cafes and restaurants

Home swap trip report: ideal base for exploring the Peak District

Guardian Home Exchange in the Peak District“We had a lovely new year home swap in Penistone. The house is conveniently located close to the town centre’s shops, restaurants, and (very quaint) heritage cinema. The house is enormous and even with six of us we only used half the bedrooms. They have a particularly fine kitchen which is very well equipped and will be appreciated by any keen cooks. This is an ideal base for anyone wanting to explore the Peak District National Park and surrounding area.”    – Nicky
