Anyone fancy an Easter House swap? London to Lakes/coutryside?

I've never done this before, but a friend has suggested it might be a good idea as I was horrified at the cost of houses to rent over the Easter Break (4th April for two weeks), so here goes!

We have a five bedroom, three bathroom house 12 minutes on the train from London Victoria (three doubles, two kid's singles, and an extra cot in one of the doubles). Living room, dining room, playroom etc. We have all the requisite kid's plastic tat and clobber child friendly equipment.

We don't have pets (or smoke) but we do have chickens, so we would like somebody who doesn't mind feeding them. You do get free eggs though as long as the ladies are obliging!

We have a big (for London) garden, woods at the back of the house and a park opposite, so its great for letting off steam (if London hasn't worn you out).

We fancy a week in the countryside - we were thinking of the Lake District, but I'm completely open to offers! We have three children (7, 5 and 2) so something that would be big enough (two beds min, but three beds would be better).

As an aisde, we are also wondering about a swap for the whole of August somewhere in Europe, so if that takes your fancy, then please let me know.

Please PM me if you think it sounds like it could work for you.
