Midsomer Cottage is a delightful refurbished and extended three bedroom Victorian cottage with open outlooks, situated in a charming village within the Oxford ring road, and with easy access to the city. The accommodation is 4 star, stylish, and provides comfortable space for five or six people.

The main staircase is steep, and there is a paddle staircase to the twin bedroom on the second floor, making it unsuitable for children under about seven, or the elderly.. However a cot and stair gates are provided, and many families have enjoyed a happy and comfortable stay in the cottage.

The village of Iffley is ideal for a comfortable and relaxing stay in Oxford as it is on an excellent bus route into the city, is close to the river, and offers a lovely old Norman church with a Piper window. There is a community village shop run by villagers, two hotels and two pubs serving good food. A choice of supermarkets are within easy reach.

The city is a pleasant 30 minute walk along the river tow path, with your first stop perhaps Christchurch College and meadows. Most of the colleges are open to the public, or you can pay a visit the Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers museums,The Sheldonian Library, or Blackwells book shop. Another option would be to take a guided walking tour, or ride on an open top bus, to familiarise yourselves with the dreaming spires of Oxford.

Restaurants include Gees, The Old Parsonage, Quads, The Vaults, and The Trout, to name only a few of many.The Playhouse Theatre and Pheonix Cinema in Jerico offer easily accessible entertainment.
