HE10019_1There’s a new trend in home swapping, according to Home Base Holidays. The economic downturn has prompted many members – mainly in the UK – to look for exchanges in their own country.

“In the past, swaps closer to home had often been primarily for short breaks but now many more are exchanging for longer holiday periods,” says the site’s blog.

Could this perfect way to escape the mortgage shackles and get the break you need, without falling victim to guilt?

“It’s easy to take for granted the many attractions close to your home,” say Home Base Holidays, who are living up to their name in new ways. “With many people having to make savings on holiday costs, now is a perfect time to re-discover your own country.”

If economic doom and gloom is getting you down and your job enables you to work remotely, why not try a temporary change of scene?

Sample properties include the above – Huntly, Highlands & Islands in Aberdeenshire, Scotland (HE10019): “Converted 19th-century mill house in heart of Scottish countryside on the Castle Trail in Aberdeenshire. Situated in a valley with lovely views of the surrounding hills, waterfall and stream, which runs through the garden. The garden extends to about an acre and is a mixture of lawn, flower beds and woods stepped into the valley.”
