A lovely room in our home in the heart of a village close to Oxford with road, rail & bus links. It's a short walk to the station for a 10min train to Oxford (and London trains). With woodland and country walks from the front door and red kites often circling overhead, Blenheim Palace & Park is very close by. It's a great base for exploring Oxfordshire & the Cotswolds. The village has 2 CoOp's, post office, fish‘n’chip and pizza takeaway, and good pubs with food. The room has a TV & mini-fridge.

The space
It is a bright, sunny and south-facing, self-contained room at the front of the house which comprises a comfortable bedroom with en suite. The bedroom (10 sq.m) has a good quality double bed and mattress (190x130), hooks and plenty of hangers, an old pine chest of (4) drawers, a mini-fridge, TV, bed-reading lights and free WiFi access. The en suite (4 sq.m) has a quality 'rain' shower (with grab rail), WC (with grab rail), basin and chrome ladder radiator – good quality towels are provided, along with ''Faith in Nature" Lavender & Geranium shower gel, shampoo & conditioner as stocked by Oxfam.

TEAs / COFFEE & BREAKFAST:
Teas, coffee, sugar and milk are provided in the room with a kettle. An in-room light breakfast is provided of muesli or a choice of flavours of warming 'porridge in a pot' for you to prepare - we'll supply milk if you'd like it - to keep in the mini-fridge.

The room is tastefully decorated with original contemporary art, ornaments and family furniture. The digital 24" TV has multiple channels (& radio).

We hope and believe you will find it welcoming - whoever you are. Our working lives have taken us all over the world - we are open-minded and welcome internationalism and diversity of all kinds. We keep learning more and more from meeting people of all backgrounds and identities. You're welcome !

DISABLED ACCESS: There is level access (except for a low threshold on the front door) to the room and sufficient space to manoeuvre a manual wheelchair - but not in the en suite, where there are grab rails by the WC and in the shower. We can provide a shower chair and WC seat-raiser and frame if requested, and you are welcome to borrow our lightweight folding wheelchair ramp for your days out if you wish.

Guest access
The room is accessed through the shared entrance hallway (see photo) and is private and lockable and looks to the front of the house (flower beds and shrubs, and the gravel driveway). The house is set back from the road and there is ample parking for three cars (considerately parked - including our one). The room is in our home, and one of us is usually around to welcome you. If we cannot be home, we will let you know in advance and tell you where to find keys (and ‘our’ rooms will be locked).

Guests can use the side path to access the private lower part of the terraced garden (we use the 'upper' part) at the back of the house where there are stunning uninterrupted views across the open Oxfordshire countryside of the Evenlode valley towards the Blenheim Palace estate, and chairs and table for you to sit in peace. The garden space is also available to guests from the Guest Suite in our house.

Other things to note
There is an outdoor tap for washing off walking boots, and we ask that they be left in the entrance porch. It is a non-smoking house.

We have spent our lives in international 'aid' work with charities/non-profits and lived and worked in several African countries for many years, and been fortunate to also travel widely on other continents. We think of ourselves as internationalists and global citizens but are now firmly UK-based. We have a relaxed approach to life - and an informal style - valuing the company of good friends and enjoying meeting new ones. We put a high priority on the diversity of life and friendships and what they can teach us - always keen to be open and welcoming to people of all identities and backgrounds. We are theatre and art lovers when we can get to the city for it, and we enjoy lviing in the country for the walks and the rural calm. We love visiting France as often as we can. Our two grown-up children have left home and live in Belgium and London respectively. We both enjoy coming from large extended families and those relationships are important to us.
