The garden is lovely, south-facing and backing onto the grounds of Worcester College, so birdsong amazing.

I can provide a cot bed for small children and you can ask for anything you might need and hopefully I can oblige as I live over the road.

South facing garden, herbs you are welcome to eat, table and chairs, friendly neighbours
If the property is needed for a Sabbatical term I will negotiate on the rent though it will still be inclusive of bills as the time taken to change the names makes it not worthwhile.
Obviously the longer the let, the lower the daily rate, but this doesn't really kick in until after 8 weeks. A single week costs less than the total of 7 nights however.
About this location
The Oxfordshire region
Oxford is the home of the famous University but has many other attractions. There are world class museums, for example the Ashmolean and the Pitt Rivers as well as the Museum of the History of Science.
Also live classical music (details from the Oxford Playhouse) theatre and dance are often available.
The Cotswolds are easily accessed by train or bus and Woodstock with Blenheim Palace is only 25 minutes drive away.
Bath can be accessed by train and London Paddington is only 1 hour away.
Oxford needs no real description being famously beautiful as the City of Dreaming Spires, home to Brideshead Revisited and Inspector Morse.
You can tour the City on a rickshaw with Oxoncarts which is a unique and really fun way to see the city, particularly the back streets that you might otherwise miss, with the benefit of a knowledgeable guide.

"Quiet Location - but very close to the centre of Oxford"
A lovely quiet area of Oxford, but close to the Colleges and Museums. We thought that arriving with 3 cars would be a nightmare but Pandora was very helpful with local parking knowledge! The ground fl… More

"Great spot for our 3 generation meet up."
The location is excellent for pedestrian forays around Oxford and parking manageable with Pandora's help, an important factor in this city. The house had all facilities, including the strangest c… More

"Great House - Amazing Location!"
I booked this house from Pandora for 1 week. We are a group of law students traveling for a moot court competition, and we LOVED the house. Pandora was so accommodating with timing and payment, and … More

Stayed here with 4 friends for a weekend get together. The house is very well appointed, comfortable and a little bit quirky! We LOVED the kitchen and diner area! It's in a great location for exploring Oxford and the area of Jericho was great for a relaxed evening out. Everything is within walking distance - even the station. There is no parking at the house but Pandora, her son and even her neighbors were all very helpful with advice and parking permits for the road. Would definitely recommend a stay.

"Great Home from Home Stay"
I came here with 5 ladies for a combined birthday/hen weekend celebration. It was the perfect antidote to souless modern apartments. The house has a real character and charm about it and you feel like it could be your own home straight away (and wish it could be!).
The beds are comfy, especially the master bedroom which I was lucky enough to sleep in. Great shower in the ensuite too. There is a little garden though it was too chilly for us to be outside, but I guess it will be nice in the summer. The lounge is comfy and the kitchen has a great retro style seating area which seated of us comfortably.
The best thing about it is the location - Jericho is lovely and a mere 2 mins away there are great bars and restaurants.
We had a lovely walk and went punting on the river. Later on Sat night we went to a lovely restaurant round the corner on Walton Street called Branca - then to cocktail bars.
A great place to stay with a group of friends for a chilled weekend, in a place you'll wish was your own home! A good place too for families too.
Better than staying in a hotel I think - and the owner is truly lovely and very accomodating and friendly. We'll be back!
