Échanges avec les voyageurs
We interact with guests as much or as little as they would like. We are always on hand to deal with any queries, as we live next door. We can offer extra services such as providing basic foods on arrival, meals as required, airport collection/drop-off and local transport (prices on request).
After 30 years of living and working abroad (mostly in eastern and Southern Africa), managing forestry projects, my wife, Julie, and I have returned to Oxford, which has been our base since we both studied here in the early 1980s. In the garden of our house was a derelict cottage, which we have restored during 2013: it was last lived in more than 50 years ago - by the village chimney sweep .. hence 'Sweep's Cottage'.
I still do some short-term overseas work, but our plans are to settle back into the community where our house is. Sweep's Cottage represents a part of our 'pension plan'!
