We live in a rural hamlet only 12 miles from Oxford, with its shops, restaurants, theatres and newly refurbished Ashmolean museum. Our home is surrounded by lovely country walks. The next village has a newly built children's park suitable for toddlers upwards. We are on the edge of the Cotswolds. With many gorgeous places to visit. Chipping Norton only 15 minutes drive. Woodstock with the famous Blenheim palace 7 miles drive. You can visit London for the day by taking a train from nearby station 20 minutes drive, then an hour by train. Uffington white Horse and Waylands Smithy situated on the famous ridgeway just under an hour away. One of our favourite places for a day out is Waddesdon Manor which is a National trust property about half an hours drive from here with a superb children's play area and stunning grounds. The famous Bicester shopping village is 15 minutes drive away.
Mark is head of Classics at a school in Oxford. Helen works at a local pre-school. Freddie age 9 (loves tennis and reading) and Teddy age 4 (loves anything to do with trains) they are well behaved and respectful of others things. Although we have boys, we also have lovely girly bedding for any little princesses that may visit, plenty of girls toys too.
In May 2009 we had our first exchange to France. We really enjoyed the experience and had a fantastic week. We can highly recommend our exchange family and their home ref.13011
Our reference from them: Reference: We warmly recommend the house of Helen and Mark. Their house is extremly beautiful, full of character and very clean. Ideally situated to discover a splendid region, the Cotswolds. And cities of Oxford, Bath and London......Our children enjoyed their holiday too, as the garden is huge and the house full of toys. In one word: Perfect!
