The apartment is in a new residential development situated by the canal in Summertown. The Summertown shops are only a short 3 minute walk away where you will find a range of quality shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. There is also a leisure centre in the area that has a swimming pool, gym, squash courts amongst other facilities.
There are also a variety of local walks onto small nature reserves and Port Meadow in the nearby area.
Summertown is excellently located just 2 miles from the centre of Oxford. The easiest way into the city is by bus with the nearest stop being only a three minute walk away at the Summertown shops. The bus service runs every 5 minutes in and out of the city with the journey taking about 5 minutes.
Alternatively, if you are feeling energetic you can take a scenic walk along the canal that will bring right into the city centre in about 30 minutes.
Access to London from Oxford is also quite easy with the Oxford Tube running regular buses that will get you into central London in just over an hour at reasonable prices, single £15 or return £18. The Gloucester Green bus station in Oxford has buses that leave regularly to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. Oxford trains go directly to Paddington station in London.
No children (I have nothing against them it's just that my apartment is not really a child friendly environment)
I had the pleasure of staying at Donal's again and echo my previous comments. Thank you very much Donal!
Great! Donal was a very welcoming host and the room was nice and comfortable. Good shower in the bathroom a couple of steps away and Donal even left out breakfast for us (although we shot off in the morning so didn't have any). Good location for North and central Oxford stuff. Thanks.
He pasado dos semanas en casa de Donal, por motivos de trabajo. La verdad es que me encontré como en casa, todo muy limpio y acojedor y tanto la habitación como el baño están genial. Tuve que usar la cocina para preparar mi cena y comida y todo genial. Donal es muy amable y recomiendo 100% su casa
The place is as listed, a beautiful room in a beautiful neighborhood. Donal was very welcoming and friendly and the house is kept impeccable. I would recommend this place and host without hesitation.
The apartment was superclean. We loved the location . Very peaceful and yet close to the town and bus stop. Donal personally welcomed us and saw to it that the arrangements were in place.He also allowed us to use the kitchen facilities. We would definitely like to go back again.
Donal was a very friendly host who welcomed us with tea and coffee. The appartment looked neat and just as described. It was within walking distance of Oxford city centre in a quiet and safe area. If you're looking for a nice place to stay near Oxford, Donal is your man ;)
