Home swapping

Have you ever thought about living by the sea but you're not too sure if it's for you? Or have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in the middle of the countryside miles away from anywhere?

Well home swapping is the perfect way to find out.

In Home Away From Home, families from around the UK swap homes with complete strangers to experience new places and lifestyles.

Each episode sees two families swap their homes and try out a new kind of lifestyle. During their stay they give their verdict on the others' home, and only on their return will they get to see who has been living in their house and what they really think of it.

Will they prefer the alternative lifestyle and make the change for good? Or is there really no place like home?
