The space

There is a desk in the twin-bedded guest room. Good wifi connection.

Guest access

You will be welcome to use the sitting room with a TV or the Garden Room (lovely in the summer).

Interaction with guests

I work from home, so am usually around during the day.

The neighbourhood

Oxford is 25 minutes by bus. Woodstock is the same distance in the other direction. There are nice canal walks locally. Thrupp is a delightful hamlet on the canal, with a tea room, a Morse pub, a boaters' library, ducks to feed....

Getting around

It's nine or ten minutes' walk to the bus stop. The new Oxford Parkway Station is 2.5 miles. (Marylebone in 57 minutes.)

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events

I have no particular 'rules'. It's good to operate with a level of consideration in terms of noise. Am delighted to welcome children. I have a short-haired cat, so it may be better not to apply if you have animal allergies.
