You can pay it off sooner by overpaying any mortgage anyway. Offset mortgages are ok if you have a decent amount in your savings but as the rates are generally higher than standard fixed rate mortgages you dont really gain. You need to do your sums and check the APR.

Personally I'd go for a fixed rate mortgage, there are some good deals around at the moment. I'm with the Nationwide as they are generally pretty competitve and allow you to pay up to £500 extra each month, that way the mortgage balance goes down very quickly.
