House swap or rent a room in London for 1 night/weekend during Olympics July 2012

We're delighted to have secured tickets for the Olympics, but now need accommodation for one night on July 28 2012 (table tennis at the Excel on 28 at 7pm, then hockey the next morning at 8.30 at the hockey centre, not sure where that is). Hotels already look like they're either impossible or ridiculously expensive.

Does anyone fancy a weekend house swap with us in Cardiff, or renting a room to us for the one night? Or reciprocal B&B? i.e we'd come to you, you return to us on a different weekend.

There are 3 or 4 of us - me, dh, 15 yo dd2 and possibly 19yo dd1 (though she is going to be a Games Maker at the Olympics, so may not be with us). As we only need somewhere to stay for a very short time, anything considered!

Our house is a large 4 bed, three double bedrooms and 1 twin, 2 bathrooms (one of which ensuite) in a pretty, very green village, on the outskirts of the city with a two playgrounds and a lovely large playing field.

20mins from Cardiff City centre and seaside (eg Barry Island, or the heritage coast), lots of castles and things to see and do - eg Museum of Welsh Life, Cardiff Bay more here.

Some more info - we're opposite what I'm told is a very good golf course, and the village has a skate park.

You'd be free to use our bikes and bike carrier (4 bikes, though the bike carrier only transports 3 bikes) - the Taff Trail is within a short drive, and the Brecon Beacons about an hour's drive from here.
