Arrange a house swap with the owner of one of these villas or cottages and get peace of mind about own place while away on holiday.
The growing numbers of holiday rentals worldwide means there are lots of options for a month’s house swap with an owner on the other side of the world. Arrange a holiday of a lifetime in Sydney, enjoying the beaches, sun and surf. Or spend a month in Cape Town with visits to Table Mountain and long drives along the southern wine route.
Holiday home swaps means your property won’t be standing empty at home. You’ll spend less and have time to break from the old routine. Plus you’ll experience a new country holiday accommodation that’s a real home from home.

Hi - thanks a lot for the positive comments about the barn and your suggestion about the skylights - I have now fitted blackout blinds to all the skylights so 'light' sleepers will be able to enjoy a good nights sleep.
The nearest pub is 3.5 miles from the barn, either in Debenham or Thorndon - I have walked it before during the day and it takes a little over 1 hour. Alternatively, it is great to get out on bikes as there is very little traffic or there are some local taxi companies in the info file in the barn. Another trick I do myself, is drive to the pub in the evening, and collect the car(s) the next day using somebody else's. With 10 guests at the barn, there are usually 3 or 4 cars amongst the party. This also gives you the added advantage of going to other beautiful pubs in the area a little further away. The closest supermarket is also only 3.5 miles away in Debenham along with a butchers, bakers etc. This information is also in the info pack at the barn. Thank you for your stay and I hope you'll return to Old Oak Barn someday.
