As does the charming town of Henley in the south-east of the county, famous for the Royal Henley Regatta, one of the finest traditional English spectacles, with boats and marquees alont the River Thames and everyone dressed in their finery.
The Cotswold town of Woodstock will be enjoyed by all visitors and is home to one of the greatest palaces in the world, Blenheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Oxford / North Oxford area
Oxford, the poet Matthew Arnold's 'city of dreaming spires', is deservedly famous the world over for its history, its ancient university and its architectural splendour. Stunningly beautiful in its buildings, Oxford also enjoys outstanding natural beauty with its rivers, canals, parks and gardens all offering ideal places to walk, explore and relax.
Oxford is also a thoroughly modern university city with an exceptional range of cultural activities and entertainment, and, not least, a thriving academic and business centre.
North Oxford refers to the residential area which has grown up along the Woodstock and Banbury Roads out of Oxford. It is Oxford’s prime residential area, admired for its wide avenues and distinctive Victorian Gothic architecture. It contains a number of university buildings and colleges, and also beautiful green spaces such as the University Parks and Port Meadow. Bounded on one side by the River Cherwell and on the other by the Oxford Canal, this superb location is the first choice of university academics and professional people.
The apartment is located between the city centre and Summertown. The shops and restaurants of North Parade are only a five-minute walk away on the other side of the Banbury Road, while one of Oxford's most fashionable and stylish restaurants - Gee's - is close by. The beautiful green area of the University Parks, which are open to everyone, are very close, only five minutes away, where guests can walk and, in summer, picnic, relax and watch cricket. Oxford city centre is only 2km away, a very pleasant twenty minute walk. It offers a huge choice of entertainment, dining and cultural activities.
1km north of the apartment is Summertown, which has its own small but excellent shopping and business centre where visitors can also find everything they need in the way of shops, restaurants, bars, services and sports and leisure facilities.
North Oxford has excellent transport links, with very frequent buses to the city centre and university areas. Just to the north is the Oxford Ring Road connecting to the M40 for London and Birmingham, and the A34 for the south of England. A self-catering apartment in North Oxford provides an ideal base for most visitors to the city, providing excellent easy access to the city from a safe, delightful residential area with its own range of facilities based around Summertown.

The flat was lovely with good sized rooms and in easy walking distance of the city centre, there were a few little things that let it down a little, the TV receptin was very poor and the kitchen could have been better equipt, if it wasn't for these small things I would have given the flat a 5 ster.
We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and thank you for letting us know about the poor TV reception and lack of kitchen equipment, we will look in to this and resolve the issues for future guests. We hope to see you again in the future if you return to Oxford.
