A secret haven in an Oxford garden

Cabin - Entire home/apt · Walton Street, Oxford, OX2 6EB, United Kingdom

The Space

A secret haven tucked away in a private garden in the middle of Jericho. A purpose-built wooden chalet with a small kitchen area and en-suite shower room is the ideal location for a professional person, holiday maker or parent visiting their student daughter/son, looking for a comfortable, quiet, independent place (with your own private entrance) to stay whilst working or visiting Oxford. Complimentary breakfast pack & wireless internet. Garden seating area with table and chairs. Parking permit available for a fee of £5 per week. Serviced weekly with all towels and linen supplied.

Jericho is a vibrant and somewhat bohemian area of Oxford with its own lively community of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. There is also an excellent independent two-screen cinema. All within 2 / 3 minutes walk. Less than five minutes walk from the Garden Room is the Oxford canal with its colourful narrowboats and Port Meadow - a huge grass meadow with cows and horses and the river Thames flowing through. A short walk of seven to ten minutes in the other direction and you are in the shopping area of central Oxford.

The train station is ten to fifteen minutes walk away and the bus station just seven to ten minutes. Oxford is close to the M40 motorway from London to the north west.

The fully insulated Garden Room (airy and bright in summer, warm and cosy in winter) is tastefully furnished with all facilities to make a most comfortable home from home stay. The kitchen facilities include a small 2 ring electric stove with oven, kettle, toaster, small fridge, sink unit with storage. All crockery and cooking implements supplied.

The single antique wooden bed ( please let me know if you are allergic and would prefer non allergenic bedding - pillows and duvet) has an above-bed light and shelving (there are a few books and maps about Oxford for the visitor to borrow). There is a cottage wooden table and 2 chairs - ideal to use for work or eating. The lovely, spacious en-suite shower room has shelves and a small hanging rail for clothes. Everything is included, together with the complimentary breakfast pack - all ready for you to just unpack your bags and relax!

Although no television is supplied, the complimentary wifi facilitates the use of accessing catch-up TV websites or applications.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Absolutely perfect. Anne is the perfect host, plenty of yogurt,muesli, milk, marmalade etc and the heavenly homemade bread.
    The room and bathroom is cosy, quiet and so tastefully furnished. Wi Fi worked well. You come and go through a separate back door, so don't have to worry about disturbing Anne with early mornings or late nights.
    Hope to come back and stay again
    thanks Anne!

    So pleased it all suited you so well, Trish. Do come again, any time !

  • A wonderful stay in an amazing central Oxford studio apartment. Anne was very helpful and friendly, providing me with fresh bread, fruit, milk and juice as well as cereal, tea, coffee, etc., but not intruding on my privacy at all. I felt more like I was staying in a luxury one-person mountain cabin (with wifi, of course) than in a garden in the heart of Oxford.

    The bed was comfortable, the shower was hot and I was able to hide from the miserable April weather in cosy surroundings. I have nothing at all bad to say about my stay!

    Thanks, Dimitri ! I'm so glad you were comfortable and had everything you needed.

  • This was my second visit to the secret haven, and I loved it just as much as the first visit. The little cottage has everything a weary traveler would want: privacy, simple provisions for breakfast, comfortable bed and table with chairs and a nice little table outside. Will recommend to my friends and colleagues and return!

This place is a wonderful island, you have everything there you need, and more. It is sad to leave, but you take much happiness and good inspiration with you. I would like to come back, it was really wellness.

I have recently returned to Oxford from living and working overseas for more years that I care to count ! I was most recently living in Malawi for three years. Before that I lived in Cambodia for sixteen years ! Prior to that in Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Venezuela, Tanzania, Morocco, Germany. I am a teacher - of Fench (despite being English), and love all things French ! I am currently enjoying tutoring students for GCSEs, A levels and the IB Diploma. I am divorced with three grown-up daughters, one of whom lives in Oxford, the other two in London. I enjoy travelling and exploring, food and cooking, gardening and growing vegetables (I have just got an allotment which is currently shoulder-high in weeds !). I love walking my dogs on Port Meadow and in the Oxfordshire countryside. And in the summer I really enjoy swimming in the river.
