Interaction with guests
I live and work in Oxford and am an Air Bnb Superhost in my apartment :) The cottage is your place and I will be as communicative (or quiet) as you like. I hope very much to meet you during your stay and will try and pop over to say hi and check how your stay is going. I do work full time in Oxford so I have some lovely ladies in the village who clean the cottage for me and iron bedding for me :) If you come to Oxford for the day, ensure you come over for a cup of tea! There is a key safe to the right hand side of the front door which will have the keys to the cottage in :) I will communicate the code etc to you. I am always available on whatsapp and my phone so during your stay I am available for any questions you may have!

A lovely village, quaint houses with a duck pond and some very feisty geese! The local shop/coffee shop was great and open every day. A comfortable little cottage, cosy and with a good selection of books and dvds. A great location for exploring local attractions...More

How to get there
Airport: Heathrow : 95.0 km
Railway: Didcot Parkway: 19.0 km
The best way to get here is by sat nav and a car is necessary as the village is far from bus routes/ motorways!!

I will email over directions if you let me know where you are coming from and any questions just call me.
