Where you’ll be

Oxfordshire, England, United Kingdom

Cowley Road is lined with Supermarkets including Sainsburys and Coop. On Cowley Road you will also find everything you require; shops, ATMs, pharmacy (Boots). We use Noor Halal (on Magdalen Road) a lot for vegetables, herbs, spices and staples. Wild Honey is a great health food store (opposite the Rusty Bike) with a notice board overflowing with wonderful things to do (yoga, meditation, foraging courses etc). Hamblin on Iffley bakes delicious sourdough bread and Scandinavian pastries. Check out the Korean, Chinese, Brazilian, Moroccan and Polish supermarkets on Cowley Road.

Oli’s Thai, Oxford’s number 1 restaurant on Trip Advisor, is on Magdalen Road. Arbequina (Cowley Road) has delicious tapas. The Banana Tree has good Sri Lankan food. Taste Tibet on Magdalen Road has wonderful (cheap) Tibetan food. The food at the Magdalen Arms is award winning. The Rusty Bicycle has oven baked pizzas and a delicious vegan burger (and meaty options!). For lunch, try vegetarian food in the Magic Cafe (Magdalen Road). For brunch, try delicious veggie sandwiches, bagels and fry-up at Green Routes, or Silvie’s, with a wonderful garden hidden in the back. Our favourite local pub is the Rusty Bicycle at the end of the road (turn left out the front door). For a pint on the river, stroll to the Isis Farmhouse.

There's a farmers market every Saturday at East Oxford Primary School. Once a month there's a flea market at the Magdalene Arms. We love the playgound at Meadow Lane (there's a skatepark just behind it), and the one at Manzil Way is great too. On Cowley Road there is also an independent cinema called Ultimate Picture Palace and an O2 Academy (music venue).

Hello! We moved to Oxford with our family about a year ago and have fallen in love with the place. East Oxford is buzzing with things to do for everyone. Perfect for us - we have three kids and enjoy the playgrounds and activities as well as the cafes and bars.

We love using Airbnb ourselves so thought it would be fun to be hosts too. We love the people we meet and the new perspectives we get on somewhere we are visiting.
