About the Homestay
I am Zuzana and live in the house with my cat Felix and I have one chicken called Lola. I gave a 16y old son who comes and visits. He lives his computers, reading books and music and his guitar. I enjoy movies and we are both very outdoorsy. We enjoy cycling , swimming and time in our garden. I enjoy cooking too and travelling. I hope I can offer comfortable stay for people who are travelling or short term students and at the same time I get tomeet interesting people

I stayed with Zuzana for 6 month during my master thesis at Harwell Campus. The location is quite convenient, a bus can take you there in around 15 min. The room & facilities were great for the price. Zuzana and her son are really friendly and the house is lovely, warm and welcoming. I enjoyed my stay and if I am in the area again I would be looking to stay again. All I can say is thank you so much.
A nice house at a very quiet neighbourhood reasonably near the town centre ant Didcot Parkway railway station. Zuzana was very helpful in arranging that everything went smoothly during my stay. The room is small, but I knew what to expect.
Nice family in quiet street. Nice clean home with Central location for Oxford and Newbury area. Thanks guys.
