Comfortable house, easy access to London and the Midlands - Dunstable

Summer 2020 - we are available for an exchange or housesitting

Our home is a medium sized spacious end of terrace with 3 bedrooms (1 double & 2 singles although we can accommodate more using a large high level double inflatable bed), upstairs bathroom, shower & toilet, downstairs toilet, modern kitchen, living/dining room and a medium sized sunny garden.

Will suit equally a family or couples. We have done 11 house swaps over the last 7 years (via Christianhomeswap.com) across Europe & England & our visitors have always thoroughly enjoyed both the house & location.
