“Heartwarming, Cosy and it won't upset your bank either” Overall, this place was fabulous, it was everything we needed & in such short notice too, it was like finding gold dust, we were certainly very lucky at how perfect & reasonable the price was.
We stayed for one night, 'we' being 4 guy mates just escaping from life to catch up & have fun for a night in Oxford.
As we knocked on the door to enter, we were rather skeptical at first, as we couldn't see anything like the pictures in sight, but we were at the right place.
First off, the owners of the place were the nicest people we have probably met, it felt very welcoming & overall a great atmosphere. Ian & his wife were the best hosts we have probably ever had the chance of meeting during non-hotel oriented visits.
The actual place used to be a stables & the owners did a very good job in revamping it into a place of living, there's a nice spacious living room, a fairly roomy kitchen, a spiral staircase up to a very spacious double bedroom & another bedroom with two single beds. There's enough kitchenware (just about) to cook a christmas dinner (quite literally ;)). There's cupboards & drawers to store your items, the shower was decent albeit the water came out a bit tired-like.
There was also a spacious dining room on the ground floor & another toilet.
The only problem we probably had (although it was a small problem) was that the wifi was a bit weak, we had problems connecting to it however we were only staying one night so it wasn't too bad.
tl;dr - Great Place, amazing value for money, you will not find a cheaper place with the same quality! Ian, his wife & his family as well as his dog were all very friendly & welcoming, wifi was a bit dodgy :P.

THE OXFORD APARTMENTS TWO
Myself and two friends had a lovely few days in oxford staying in the oxford apartment which was perfect in every way. We really couldn’t have asked for more. We enjoyed our walks into the city, which did not disappoint,and loved returning to home from home accommodation where we could just chill! Highly recommend and would certainly return. …
Beautiful 3 bed house in Headington
Our family of four adults had a fantastic stay at this lovely house in Headington Oxford. It is situated in a quiet street off the main road into Oxford. After long days spent in Oxford the house was very warm and comfortable to come home too. The house is very spacious yet cosy especially the lounge where we chilled in front of the TV. Although the house is a little way from the city centre we were able to walk it. We did make use of the fantastic bus services. The Crisis Cafe is recommended. We also enjoyed our bus trip to Blenheim. Thank you Gary as I said to the family “this is my type of house!” …
