We stayed with Tessa for three nights in her beautiful and idyllic house in Summertown. She is the warmest and kindest hostess one can imagine. The room and bathroom is very clean, the bed is comfortable, and the breakfast is so delicious :-) Everything is homemade and Tessa really makes an effort to make you feel at home in Oxford. In fact, we were sad to leave!! She has our warmest recomendations :-)
We had a wonderful stay. Tessa's place was great! She was very welcoming and even had a cake in the oven for us when we arrived! Tessa was very knowledgeable of the area and took time to chat with us over tea. The bedroom and bathroom were super clean and breakfast was fantastic.
We just wish we could have stayed longer.
Thank you so much Tessa.

Tessa was a very welcoming host that offered us great advice during our short stay in Oxford!
Tessa gave us a lovely welcome and the bedroom and bathroom were modern, spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
The road is attractive and quiet and it was great being able to park our car on Tessa's "drive".
We were going to a function at the Cherwell Boathouse so it was very useful being able to walk back to Tessa's afterwards and collect our car the next day!
Breakfast in the conservatory was superb, delicious home made granola and full english breakfast freshly cooked.
A great weekend and the perfect place to stay.
Tessa was very friendly and welcoming, we really enjoyed staying with her. The room was very clean and quite. She cooked early breakfast and help us called the taxi. We felt very well looked after. I'd recommend this place to everyone!
Our stay exceeded our expectations. Nice and comfortable room and space bath room, but above all a great host. Tessa answered all our questions promptly before and during our stay. Tea was served on arrival with lovely home made cake.The area is brilliant and the local shops are at the top end of your local shops. (Starbucks, Costa, M&S food hall and a wide range of quality independent restaurants.)
There is limited on site parking, but within 100 meters is a local council car park.
Breakfast is freshly cooked and there are homemade preserves and cereals. We only our breakfast with the 2 other couples and we were all equally enthusiastic about Tessa's B&B and the location and we now understand why she is often fully booked.
It was lovely to spend our 1 night in Oxford in your comfortable home surroundings. It is especially nice to be offered a piece of home-made cake on arrival and to be able to sit in your garden to enjoy it. Thank you
