North Oxford, consisting of Summertown and St Giles, mainly covers the fork of leafy Banbury and Woodstock Roads. Owned for many centuries by St John's College, the North Oxford area is considered to be the most affluent part of Oxford with large sprawling houses and many of Oxford Universities most beautiful and historic colleges nestled amongst private schools such as St Edwards and The Dragon School. Summertown is the perfect place to base yourself during an extended stay in Oxford with high end and budget supermarkets along with fashion and interiors boutiques.
One route to town, along the canal, takes you to vibrant Jericho, with its independent shops and cinema and on to the train station and central Oxford.
Eating out in North Oxford is a real pleasure with The Old Parsonage, Gee's and Browns restaurants along with many other independent and international restaurants and bistros. The smell of fresh coffee and croissants coming from the many independent delis in the morning is a particular pleasure. The Cherwell Boathouse, along the River Cherwell is the perfect place to work up an appetite with a ride on a punt, the unique row boats similar to those found in Venice and Cambridge, before lunch from their delicious menu.
Attractions not to be missed include the famous Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, each housing some of the world's most fascinating and historical artefacts.
Access to the city centre
Oxford city centre is 3kms away, only 10 minutes by bus, with the bus stop very close to the apartment. It is a pleasant journey, straight down the Woodstock Road/St Giles, taking you past North Oxford's distinctive Victorian Gothic architecture and university buildings. The excellent location and transport links make this an ideal Oxford holiday letting, whether you are looking for a corporate booking or a holiday cottage in Oxford.

"A Genuine Home Away"
This is our second stay at Bishop Kirk, and we have been thoroughly satisified both times. The flat is as it appears online. It is roomy and well-appointed. It is in a quiet area while still convenient to Summertown and Oxford.Leasing arrangements go smoothly. I recommend this flat without reservation.

"Nice flat,but very tired and uncomfortable"
Check in done by a brusk maid. Landlady only communicated by texts and never met. Materasses old and noisy. Wardrobe in master room not usable because occupied by foldable beds and their duvets. Kitchen with odd glasses and cups, no scissors, no cereal bowls and strange unusable microwave with no instructions.Would be uncomfortable for 4 people.Toilet seat ancient and broken, armchair in the living room broken. Pity, because the flat is nice and has convenient parking, but as the owner's handyman said while trying to repair a wash basin (with no success), needs a complete renovation. Not worth the money.
