Surfing dog - Sonia's excellent photo from her home swap in the UK
Sonia's family and their much loved Cocker spaniel, Gandalf
"Our bodyboarding and surfing day out in Woolacombe Beach (Devon). Fantastic weather and lovely waves. The beach stretches out for miles, and the cliffs hanging as a backdrop offer peaceful and panoramic walking trails, as well as paragliding for the more adventurous. We couldn't resist a lovely meal at the 'Captain's Table' where we had a delicious jacket potato stuffed with fresh crab and one of the best fish & chips I've ever tasted!" Sonia

Mobility scooter fun day
'Mobility Scooter Fun Day' during Paul & Jean's swap in Holland
"This was taken while on our swap in the Dutch town of Bergen-op-Zoom and illustrates the joys of staying off-the-beaten track. We were walking back to our home-from-home and our route took us through the Market Place of Bergen-op-Zoom. On this particular day we were amazed to find the square filled with decorated mobility scooters, stalls, a band and a choir! It was a mobility scooter fun day! It certainly made our day." Paul & Jean

Canoeing down the Wye during Ann & Peter's swap in the UK

"We Canadians had a glorious time at The Hay Festival, where a few UK friends joined us in our beautiful Elizabethan cottage (at a time when it is difficult to secure good accommodation close to Hay). We also took some time off to canoe down the Wye and walk some of the Brecon Beacon paths. Our lovely hosts and their children enjoyed their time at our home in Canada too." Ann & Peter

Home swap Q&A: can I swap my modest home?
Q: I live in a nice but modest studio flat in Edinburgh. It's cosy and close to good transport links but can only sleep one or two people comfortably. Would anyone be interested?

A: Absolutely! Home Base Holidays has home swap offers of all types and sizes. There are a number of very luxurious offers available but the majority of homes are similar to yours, especially those in cities. Being close to public transport is definitely a plus. Most members look for homes big enough to accommodate their party (and many are couples and singles) and in locations of interest.
