If you want to visit Oxford and not pay huge Hotel bills and have independence you need to self-cater. This very central house with its private south facing garden, will meet all your needs; it has 2 double bedrooms, and a single room plus a spare futon in the top floor bedroom for extra guests. The garden is lovely, south-facing and backing onto the grounds of Worcester College, so birdsong amazing.Open plan ground floor makes for light and spacious living, with wifi, central heating, Bosch appliances and all linen provided.There is tv, dvd player and a sound system for CD"s. bring your own dock for iPod.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.

Further details indoors

Lovely solid oak flooring, bespoke furniture from Philip Koomen who has a wonderful workshop in Checkendon. Perfect for visiting the University, the city or the Cotswolds as public transport from Oxford is great to all parts of the UK.

Further details outdoors

South facing garden, herbs you are welcome to eat, table and chairs, friendly neighbours. If you need parking, ask me as I often have a space by my garage or permits to spare. One car in the group would be the maximum tho.

Further details

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.

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.

Central Oxford

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.

"Perfect location"

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!

"A wonderful home from home"

I stayed here with friends (26-30) for a reunion weekend and didn't want to leave. It's a clean, charming house for up 7 to share comfortably, enjoy home-cooked meals, relax and unwind. Equipped with wifi and TV and music, we weren't missing anything. The furnishing was to a high finish and stylish standard, and the garden is an added bonus for sunny days, with it's own fresh herbs! Conveniently located in Oxford city's coolest corner - Jericho - it's no further than 2/3 minutes from the pubs, bars, restaurants and main attractions. Helpful yet hands-off owner, who answered all my enquiries, and returned the deposit promptly. At such great value for money, in a city full of over-priced hotels, we'll be returning...
