My husband & I are both retired and have 2 adult children who left home some time ago. Our son and his family live on the Sunshine Coast and we have family who live in Perth. We have a 4 bedroom detached house in Northampton. We are in a good position for visiting lots of lovely places in the UK. We are close to London (an hour by train ) also the Cotswolds, Stratford on Avon , Cambridge and Oxford to name a few. We have local buses that run every 10 mins close to our house. We live in a quiet cul de sac and there is a shopping centre 10 minutes walk away. We are not far from Althorpe House where Princess Diana lived. We are surrounded by pretty villages and lovely village pubs and restaurants.

People who visit always comment on the quaint villages that surround Northampton. There is easy access to the motorway and train station. There are lovely walks close by and a reservoir and country park is 10 minutes drive from our home. We are close to quite a few country houses one being Althorp where Princess Diana once lived and Earl Spencer still lives there for part of the time. The house is open to the public in summer. We also have Holdenby House connected to Oliver Cromwell, so there are plenty of places to visit . We are currently trying to get a house swop for April/May 2018 near to our son in Wurtulla which is close to Caloundra, Mooloolaba. We try to visit every year at different times.
