Our house is on the main road of a lovely old village, Aynho, well known for its apricot trees. It is a gateway to the Cotswolds, which is on our doorstep and situated on a high hill amongst rolling countryside. There are many public footpaths from Aynho for the keen rambler with pubs en-route. The canal with its lovely narrowboats and many miles of foothpaths is only 1 mile from Aynho. The nearest supermarket is 2 miles away and the nearest town (banbury) with lots of shops, restaurants, clubs etc 8 miles away. Oxford is a 30 minute drive and London 1 hour by train. Nearest trainstation is 8 miles from Aynho (Bicester)and a bus stop is a few metres from our door.
Philip and I (Deborah)are a married couple with two small children (2.5yr and 11months) and have recently been accepted for immigration to Australia NSW. We have never done a home exchange before but tought this may be the way to get a feel what it is like living in Australia. Philip is an electrician and I work part-time in a bank. We love rural living, lots of walking and make many visits to the playground. We would love to spend lots of time on the beach making sandcastles with our boys and exploring more of NSW.
