Central Oxford, Oxfordshire, England - with resident cat! home swap
Comfortable family home with west facing garden, two minutues walk from the River Thames, ten minutes walk to the train station with regular trains to central London.
We will leave our very affectionate cat behind, so would ask you to take care of her during your stay.
This will be our first experience of swapping homes, but we have had a few very successful trips using AirBnB. We would like to swap during the last 2 weeks of August 2015, but would be open to offers later in the year.
