Near Oxford, House in Watlington in Great Britain

We are currently looking for an exchange next summer 2020 to the USA for a family of four. We are going to a concert in Los Angeles on 26 July 2020 so are interested in exchanges in any location in California, Arizona or surrounding states.

We have been on five fantastic house exchanges to USA, Ireland, Denmark, Iceland and Sweden.

Our house is in the historic old village of Watlington, Oxfordshire which is 20 minutes by car to Oxford, and very close to London, Windsor and Stratford Upon Avon.  We often have filming in the village such as Midsomers Murders.We have shops, pubs and restaurants in the village. Good transport links to Oxford and London and our car (automatic) is included in our exchange. There are many hiking and cycling trails around our village and the surrounding countryside. We have mountain bikes and love exploring the trails. There are also lots of golf courses, historic houses and other attractions (Windsor Castle, Lego Land, Harry Potter Studio, Stratford Upon Avon, numerous National Trust historic properties etc) in the area.
 
We have a lovely house with four bedrooms and a fifth tv room/ 5th bedroom and can sleep 9. This would give three double bedrooms a bed room with 2 bunk beds and a bedroom with a single bed. We have recently completed a renovation and have a modern kitchen and large open plan dining room opening onto the patio and garden. We have four bathrooms with our master bathroom with a large ensuite. We are well set up for children over 5 and have a large garden with a patio for outside dining in the summer and a large gas BBQ. We have an internal insulated garage with cloakroom, laundry room and home gym. We have an outdoor trampoline and table tennis table in the garden and have a vegetable patch with an abundance of vegetables in the summer.

We do have a cat but neighbours are happy to feed and the cat sleeps and can stay in the utility room/garage area with a cat flap. We also have a weekly cleaner and gardener.

We have bikes for 5 but can potentially borrow friend's bikes if you are particularly interested in cycling and you are a larger family.

We live 45 minutes from Heathrow airport.

Our most recent house swappers have thoroughly explored Oxford, visited London on several occasions, visited pictoresque Cotswold villages, Stratford Upon Avon, Blenheim Palace, the small historic market towns of Thame and Wallingford as well as enjoying jogging, walking and cycling in the surrounding countryside. We have had other swappers who have loved exploring the golf courses and shopping in Oxford, London and the Bicester Village designer outlet mall.
