Family Home in Yorkshire, close to cities and countryside

Our home is a 100 year old terraced house on four storeys, with high ceilings, fireplaces and other traditional features.

Exchanging with us would put you in the heart of a friendly Yorkshire village. From the front door you can walk into the Yorkshire countryside with wonderful views over the Wharfe Valley. In contrast, just a 5 minute walk takes you to the village railway station, with trains to the bustling city of Leeds only a 15 minute ride away. In 40 minutes you can drive to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

So, in one holiday you can take in the delights of the city and also the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, all within easy reach.

We've been home exchanging for over 20 years, and the children, since they were very small so we have a wealth of experience!

*Our Home
Our front door opens on to an entrance hallway and on the ground floor is the lounge, dining area and kitchen.
The lounge has a wood burning stove, TV, DVD player and XBox Kinect. The dining area has a stone fireplace and the kitchen includes all appliances - dishwasher, electric & gas oven, gas hob and fridge.

Downstairs is a play/TV room with XBox and a small library of DVD's. There is a downstairs toilet and a small utility room with washing machine, tumble drier and fridge/freezer.

Upstairs is a double bedroom with a king size bed and a study/spare room with a double bed. In the bathroom there is a shower over the bath.

On the floor above this are 2 children's bedrooms with sloping roofs. One bedroom has a single bed, the other has a double bed.

While you are staying at our home you can have the use of our 4 bikes (if we don't take them with us).

At the back there is a garage and garden with a small lawn. We have a barbeque for days when the weather is warm.
