We are a family of 4, with children aged 1 and 4 looking for a home in Bali for a 6 week period December 2022-mid January 2023 (exact dates flexible and we would consider as little as 4 weeks if necessary). We either seek somewhere to rent over this period or would be open to a house swap in our beautiful 6 bedroom mill house situated on the banks of the River Avon in Wiltshire.  


Requisites for Bali home:

Minimum 3 bedrooms in a beautiful, private plot 

Swimming pool (the longer the better!) 

Lush, tranquil garden setting with outdoor dining area  

Happy to be surrounded by paddy fields – the more natural the better in terms of setting. 

With our littlest who will still only be 1 year old on this trip, we need somewhere that we can do a scenic walking loop and ideally bike ride directly from the house, as this will likely be a twice daily need! 

Proximity to one of the island’s best beaches on the island is a definite bonus. We will of course rent a car so our home doesn’t need to be right on the coast. In fact, slightly inland in stunning scenery is preferable, but a short car journey to a great beach would be ideal.   

A villagey vibe would be lovely (either on the edge of a village or somewhere nearby) 

Restaurants/cafes and a shop would be a bonus, but again we would far rather be in a natural haven than a built up area.

We will need childcare help which can obviously be done separately but any cooking/ cleaning/ childcare support that comes with a house is a bonus. 


Wiltshire home description
Littlecott Mill is an attractive 6-bedroom 18th Century mill house set in 2 acres of gardens on the banks of the River Avon, 1.5 hours from Central London (57 mins by train) with around 200 yards of fishing. 

The house has 2 very large master bedrooms, both with double-height oak-beamed ceilings and 4 further bedrooms (2 singles, 2 doubles). There are 3 bathrooms and an additional shower room with power shower. 

There is a very large family kitchen with Smallbone units and Miele appliances, a 4-oven Aga, large fireplace containing a glass-fronted wood-burning stove, drawing room with french doors opening out to the river, conservatory with underfloor heating, kids’ playroom, TV “snug” with Sky Q (TV also in kitchen) and a large boot-room with ample storage and a gun-safe. 

The grounds extend to 2 acres, south-west facing, with views over the River Avon to the water meadows and village Church beyond. 1 acre of lawn around the house is fenced-off from the river (child-proof) and there is also an island in the middle of the river accessed via a bridge across the mill-pond and steps for river swimming and fishing. 

The house is 12 minutes’ drive from Pewsey station which is on the fast line to London (57 mins to Paddington). There are 2 award-winning pubs within a 5-10 min walk, one of which has a Michelin Star. 

Littlecott Mill sits on the doorstep of Salisbury Plain and, whilst situated on the edge of the pretty village of Enford, has direct access to around 100k acres of free-access land for walking and cycling.
