The Space

Good size room with twin or single bed available in the area of Botley 1 - 1/2 miles from Oxford City Centre. Light and spacious room with free wifi and Sky TV. Off road parking is available outside of the house. My husband and I live here with our 3 year old Son and have been a host family for students for a couple of years and love meeting new people and welcoming them to our home and to the beautiful city of Oxford.

We are a 2-3 minute walk from a great bus route in to the centre and have local shops which include an Indian & Chinese restaurant a local English Pub, news agents and three express supermarkets for those all important supplys.

I have lived within the neighbourhood for over 20 years and so have lots of knowledge of the area including sites to see and places to go. We have a 24hr bus service from Oxford to London and we are a 10 minute bus ride from the train station.

Our home backs (email hidden) park with woodland, so feel free to venture out through the gate and relax in the park with your favourite book and watch the world go by.

When you stay with us we make sure that your stay is as comfortable as possible with fresh towels, bed linen and flowers, a friendly face for advise and an English cuppa in the mornings to start the day. Laundry is available for longer staying guests at no extra charge.

We hope you choose to stay with us in our lovely home and enjoy what Oxford has to offer. We look forward to meeting you.

Toast with Jams and Cereals is included in the price, just help yourself!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The room was just as pictured! Clean and tidy, with everything a traveler could hope for! Also, the hosts were more than helpful, and Mr. Sherbourne stayed up late to welcome us home the first evening. While this is a bit of a hike from Oxford's main campus (a 45 minute walk), definitely consider this room if you are planning a trip to the area. Overall: we would stay here again!

  • Samantha and her family are great hosts. Their place is just a short bus ride away from the center of Oxford. They are very welcoming and even provided us with some bread and cereal for breakfast. Their place was clean and comfortable. If you're traveling to Oxford I would recommend staying here.

  • From the outset Samantha was extremely prompt in responding to our inquiries, organisation of a key was terrific, their home is lovely and the room was fantastic, exactly as described. About a 10 min bus into the centre of oxford. Would definitely stay there again!

  • I needed a quiet place to stay during a business trip to Oxford. Found Samantha's listing, and booked it. Communication was extremely swift, and the room was exactly as described. In fact, the bed was super comfortable. Great value, close to the city centre and a safe neighbourhood at night. I never met Samantha due to my check-in/check-out times, but I'd definitely return next time I need a place to stay in Oxford.

  • The stay was really cool. The room was spacious, confortable relatively clean and well equiped. There was a kettle, bags of tea and cups. Ideal to make a little breakfast in the bed.
    We arrived later than we planned and Sam was comprehensive and give us advices to arrive to their house.
    The second evening we talked a long time with Sam's husband. It was very interesting. We learned a lot about criket!
    The last day, we finaly met Sam and her son.
    Thank you for your kindness and your home, it was very pleasant.

Being a host is a great experience and my husband and I enjoy meeting new people from all over the world. We are a relaxed couple who are welcoming and love to share our home and city with others. As a family we like to cook, i especially enjoy baking breads and cakes, we enjoy BBQ's in the summer and havea park at the end of our garden which is great for relaxing, going for a run or a kick about with our family and friends.
