Notre maison

Our home is a large town house; comfortable and clean. It is a 20min walk into the centre of Oxford and a short bus ride from a stop 2mins away. We are keen cooks and the kitchen is light and well equipped, including an aga, which really gives it a homely feel. There is an ajoining dining room. The spacious living room has a working fire place, three sofas and a television with DVD player. Upstairs are two double bedrooms with large double beds and a study with a wireless printer. We have wireless internet throughout the house. There is one en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower over and a family bathroom with a stand alone shower cubical. On the 2nd floor are two attic rooms suitable for teenagers only. We prefer to exchange with a maximum of 4 people. Our house is full of interesting pictures, old rugs and curios and is therefore not suitable for young children. Our garden is a good size and has reasonable privacy for a town garden. We have a large barbecue and lots of outdoor furniture for outside eating or just lounging about.
We have off road parking for 3 cars although a car is not necessary in the city.

En savoir plus sur nous

  1. We are Jenny and Adrian, a retired couple in our sixties. We have a twenty-nine year old daughter, Louise, who has now graduated and left home to start her new career. With more time on our hands we are hoping to do lots of house swaps. Until 2006 we ran a delicatessen in Oxford that we set up and ran for 25 years. We both have a keen interest in food and cooking is one of our main hobbies. We also enjoy walking, cinema and reading. Adrian is a keen fisherman. We have traveled extensively, particularly when we were younger, and are now ready to see the world again! We completed our first exchange to San Francisco in summer 2006 and since then have also visited Boston, Toronto, Chicago and Vancouver. We have also exchanged many times in the UK and Europe. We would be interested in exchanges in the UK at any time but would like to visit Europe in Spring or Autumn. We are also interested in swaps in the USA - perhaps New York, Chicago, San Francisco and the Carolinas.

Localisation

Quartier

Our house is situated in a quiet residential road just 1/2 mile from Oxford city centre. It is 5 minutes walk to the River Thames. We have local shops 2mins away. Buses run from Oxford to London every 10mins - journey time about 1hour. Direct buses run to Oxford from both Heathrow and Gatwick airports every 30 minutes with no booking necessary. It is easy to reach Stratford-upon-Avon, The Cotswolds and the South Coast by bus or train. A car is not necessary although rental is convenient and reasonable and we have off-street parking. Oxford is full of museums and galleries and visiting the University Colleges is a must. The city's parks, river walks and punting are a joy, particularly in the spring and summer. Oxford also has indoor and outdoor swimming pools and tennis courts. Close by are several golf courses and a bowling alley. Within walking distance of the house we have many very good pubs and restaurants.

Come and enjoy this historic city either on foot or bicycle and travel further afield easily by car or on public transport.
