The Central England/Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in recognition of their unique appeal and the beauty of the predominantly rural landscapes. The Cotswolds are known worldwide for their stone-built villages, historical towns, and stately homes and gardens. Many consider the Cotswolds as representative of the archetypal English landscape, within easy striking distance of London and on the doorstep of Oxford.
Oxford is the oldest university city in the United Kingdom and Oxford University is the oldest English-speaking university in the world. Situated some 50 miles (80 km) to the west of the capital London in its own county of Oxfordshire, and located on the rivers Thames (the section of the Thames in Oxford is known as "The Isis") and Cherwell. Oxford's famous "Dreaming Spires" refer to the medieval churches and colleges that dominate the vibrant modern town in all their Gothic splendour.
Summertown in north Oxford is a vibrant shopping and business centre and an attractive residential area. It offers a wide range of shops and services as well as sports and leisure facilities. It is an easy walk from the wide expanse of Port Meadow beyond the Oxford Canal to the west and the River Cherwell banked by ancient meadows to the east. South Parade, around the corner from Dudley Court, is a popular street offering independent cafes, restaurants, an art gallery, public library with sculpture garden, florists and other services.

"Sunny, Pretty, Clean Flat in Upscale Summertown"
We loved staying in this apartment. We are a family of 3 and had plenty of room to stretch out. The kitchen is especially nice, top end appliances and fittings. The best part was actually the Summerto… More

This flat was very comfortable. It is near the bus line so it was very convenient. There is a pub a few minutes away that is called the Dew Drop Inn and had excellent food. Being welcomed to the flat with a bottle of wine, coffee and milk was very thoughtful. We are definitely looking forward to coming back to this flat next year.

"Light, airy and in super location"
Our second stay at the Eco Flat. It is well equiped and has large windows making the rooms light & airy. Linen is crisp and beds are comfortable. We love being in Summertown which has everything we need in terms of shops without being crowded like central Oxford. 10 minutes on the bus and you are in the centre. We were visiting schools with young children and it was great to have a 'base' to retire to. The owner, Tim, is very pleasant and helpful. We hoped to come back again later in the year but the flat is booked already!

"Comfortable, well equipped and good location"
The flat was very comfortable, well equipped and with good quality furnishings, white goods and other fittings and a good level of maintenance. It is very well located with shops, restaurants and other facilities close by. The accommodation was ideal for myself and my wife plus our adult daughter. The wi-fi was good and reliable and was very useful for
Given the congested nature of Oxford, the availability off-street parking with the flat was particularly useful for us.
Despite the cold November weather the flat was warm and cosy.

"A Home away from home!!"
Our family of four stayed at the Ecoflat for 6 days and found it the perfect place for our short visit to Oxford. The flat had everything we needed and Tim and Jo were very supportive and accommodating. They also provided lots of toys to entertain our boys. We also learnt some tips about energy saving and recycling.
Summertown is also a great location with many shops where you can find everything you need, a variety of shops, lovely playgrounds for children and Barefoot Books where the family can have fun, learn and share a nice meal.
The flat is on the second floor but our children enjoyed going up and down the stairs. A really nice exercise!!!
We were glad we found the Ecoflat, a perfect home away from home!!!

"Wonderful flat in good location"
The flat is easily spacious enough for four people and is well furnished and supplied: it has everything you need, so you can start enjoying your holiday straightaway.
Everything is eco-friendly, which is an additional plus.
The flat is located near the heart of Summertown, close to a variety of shops and restaurants, and with easy bus connections in the city centre, while the flat itself is in a quiet street.
It is a good base to explore Oxford and its surroundings.
The landlords were very nice and helpful, and we did not have any problems.
The flat is located on the second floor, and there is no lift; hence it is not recommended for older travellers or people with disabilities.

"Excellent venue in a great location"
We really enjoyed our stay in this appartment. It is roomy and well lighted. It is also well equipped. Owners clearly paid much attention to eco-details, which allow smart yet responsible use of home appliances and energy.
The apparement is perfectly located a short walking distance from shops and public transportation to town (very frequent, about ten minutes ride). Biking takes the same time.

"Bright, clean and convenient flat located one quiet street away from the tourists and bustle of central Oxford"
My husband, teenaged daughter and I stayed in the Eco-flat for a week. The very kind and considerate owner, Tim, met us upon arrival, explained how everything worked and then checked in by phone the next day to answer any questions. The flat is bright and clean, and simply but comfortably decorated. My daughter has dust mite allergies and had no reaction to this place at all which attests to its cleanliness and how new all the linens are. We appreciated the conveniences of washer-dryer, dishwasher, microwave, etc. Location is an easy bus ride to the heart of Oxford and to a bus stop to catch the local bus to Blenheim Palace. We found a couple of nice restaurants in Summertown itself. Easy to get late night groceries or a drink in the neighborhood too. A good alternative to staying in the thick of things.
