Interaction with GuestsThis is our home so we do need to make alternative accommodation arrangements for ourselves and our 2 cats, therefore we prefer minimum 1 week bookings. If we have a booked holiday and will be out of the country, the calender will be marked "Definitely Available".
This would be ideal for families who are looking for a cheaper way to accommodate children, than staying in a hotel. The NeighborhoodAugust End is a cul de sac so is generally quiet. The house is adjacent to a school playing field so during the school day there is some noise.
The closest main road, Oxford Road, is lined with take away restaurants, specialist food shops (Polish, Indian, Africa, Portuguese) as well as UK's major supermarket Tesco. There is also an abundance of hairdressers and beauty salons. Getting Around
