About the teacher’s accommodation


I live in a village called Woolton Hills, south west of the city of Newbury in the southern county of Berkshire. My home is a four bedroom, modern, detached house. There is a large garden to enjoy in summer. The village is situated amidst attractive countryside, with woods and hills and small, old villages.

About the local area


Woolton Hills is a small village with a small shop, a pub and a church. It is a short bus ride or car journey to the attractive town of Newbury. The town has all modern amenities and a railway station with good connections. There are regular markets, a racecourse, a theatre and a cinema.
You can visit the city of Oxford to see the ancient university with its Gothic architecture, explore the museums and hire a punt to go on the river.
Windsor is another town to visit where you can see the historical castle and enjoy the excellent shops and eating places.
A day trip to London to see all the attractions is also very convenient. There is a frequent train service and the journey is 60 minutes. Locally, there are a number of stately homes and beautiful gardens to visit.
