Interaction with Guests
This is pretty much up to you...some people become involved in the family side of life in Jericho and others prefer to stay quiet and private but there is always a good interaction in the kitchen area.
Jericho is great! It is so full of life and action which means just going about your business is always quite interesting. The shops are good and the restaurants, pubs, bars and ice-cream shops are plentiful and varied. A good mixture of local residents, students and visitors makes for a wonderful social life. We are near great places for jogging, Port Meadow, University Parks and the riverside. The Ashmolean, the Bodleain Library, Natural History Museum and Pitt Rivers are all a must and close at hand. The Botanical gardens too are very special to Oxford.... not to mention the colleges..... which surround this location.
Public transport in and around Oxford is first class. There are regular links to the airports (The Airline bus) and to London. We are right in the heart of Oxford! The X90 goes via Baker Street; The Tube via Notting Hill and Marble Arch. Bus costs Pnds13/15/18 for a day return to Victoria...really good value! Trains are faster but more costly.
Other Things to Note
There is a special filtered water tap so you can re-fill your bottle. I have a hair dryer and shampoo/conditioner for you if required.
Everyone expected to behave extremely well! In fact, I like guests to feel at home but to respect the house and any other guests. Also they need to be clean and tidy up after themselves if they use the kitchen. I clean the kitchen and bathrooms very frequently so they are always fresh.
