Farm house Bristol Somerset, Great Britain

The barn is a terraced 2 bedroom 2 bathroom property in the chew valley, the village is at the start of the national footpath to the medips
The neighbourhood is vey quiet and has a village feel,
We have two children who are 6 & 8 and a cat who will need feeding. We offer use of our mpv car during your stay and use of our bicycles. We also have two dogs a laborador and spaniel but we can arrange for dog care if this is a problem
We are currently looking for an exchange for the month of August but are flexible about which weeks. We would ideally like to be somewhere close to the beach with sailing opportunities.
Our house is 20 mins drive from Bristol and 40 mins from Bath so a good base to explore both cities, a car is essential and we would consider a car exchange.
I am a nutritionist and my husband is a visual effects director. The barn is fully independent of our house and is available for exchange anytime
