My house is a 3 storey town house. Guest room(s) is on top floor by bathroom. One medium bedroom with washbasin plus small bathroom. Adjacent living room with kitchen facilities - kettle, fridge, microwave and Wifi. It is a quiet cul de sac on the edge of Port Meadow with nearby access to the canal which takes you into Oxford. One local corner shop/newsagent. Gastro pub with garden and community pub within 3 mins. Good bus service approx every 12 minutes into city centre.

The space
This house was built in the sixties so it is light with big windows. The bathroom is smallish with an over bath shower. There are two armchairs in the living room which also has a small table with two chairs. The bedroom has a great view towards the meadow.
I have two cats, brother and sister called Felix and Luna, they are not allowed in the guest accommodation.

Guest access
Guests have their own bedroom with washbasin and their own siting room next door which has a fridge, kettle and microwave so you can make a sandwich, heat soup or chill a bottle of wine. Tea and coffee are also provided. The bedroom is next to the bathroom which is only shared with me.

Other things to note
The Close itself is very quiet but there are two pubs within three minutes walking distance and a local shop round the corner.

I retired from a career in hospital social work in 2018 which I loved and still miss. I'm half Dutch on my mother's side so speak rusty Dutch but good German and French. I love travelling. Especially in Europe. Amsterdam and Vienna are among my favourite cities and I have great memories of island hopping in Greece and enjoying the sun and the beaches with friends in Vejer in Southern Spain. I like drawing and painting, reading, going to the cinema and the theatre though not as often as I'd like! I have half an allotment plot on Port Meadow where I grow raspberries and blackberries. I like walking, too and would like to try jogging again though I'm not very fast! I have three local granddaughters and a toddler grandson in London with another due in September. I take part in a yoga class once a week and sing in a choir. On Thursday mornings I work in an animal charity shop. I like to keep busy!! Meeting friends and eating out is also a great pleasure. I'm a child of the sixties so love the Beatles and pop music of that time. A Whiter Shade of Pale still sends shivers down my spine.... But then I like classical music too though I'm no connoisseur. My mother's motto was 'There's no such thing as cant' though I haven't always lived up to that.

During your stay
Although recently retired I am out and about during the week - yoga, choir, volunteering and socialising. I'm usually around in the evenings for any questions or information. My mother was Dutch so I speak Dutch as well as German and French and I am learning Spanish as my grandson will be bi lingual in Spanish and English.
