  • Description

    Description

    We are a friendly, well-travelled male couple living in a quaint small town in the english countryside, near to Oxford and with good access to London. We have a pretty three bedroom place in the centre of the town. One of us works freelance as a learning & development consultant and the other works for IKEA.

    There are several options here. We have a garden and allotment that need care. And in the house itself we could use a good cook and some help with cleaning and maintenance. Our priority right now is that we have some decorating work that needs to be undertaken.

    You will have a spacious, bright double room for yourself. We have a large living/dining area with a kitchen opening onto a quiet garden. One of us cooks really well and the other if forced!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The town is small but lovely and has many pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops. It lies on the river Thames and has excellent walking and/or cycling routes all around. There is a very convenient and regular bus service to Oxford or Reading. Oxford is a special city for many reasons and is great to explore. Reading is useful as the service from there to central London is frequent and fast.

    We have both lived abroad at different times and continue to enjoy travelling, especially in Europe. We have a lot of friends and enjoy to socialise at home and outside. We would hope to include whoever stays as much or as little as they prefer.
