House - Private room · Hill Top Road, Oxford, OX4 1PE, United Kingdom

The Space

Lovely double room with a view over the city of Oxford, in leafy Hill Top Road, complete with own bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities and use of kitchen in the main house, which is owned by Teddy and Nicola and their two cats, all happy to offer you a warm welcome and to tell you about the joys of living in the most beautiful city of dreaming spires.

We would hope you'll be able to stay a few days to make the most of all the restaurants, cinemas and theatres in the city, and to get to know the museums and fabulous range of shops.

Hill Top Road is beautifully quiet, and is just by South Park, where the number 4 buses take you into the centre of town in less than 5 minutes, and the Cowley Road with yet more buses going into town.

Teddy and Nicola used to run a large Residential Arts Centre in southern France and are always delighted to meet new people and help them to make the most out of their stay. They both speak fluent French, and Nicola speaks rusty Spanish as well.

  • It's definitely an unforgettable stay in Nicola and Teddy's home. Both of them are so nice, hospitable and easy to communicate. I think we are friends now. I got a lot of useful information from Teddy, and I like to talk with both of them. The house is lovely, full of books and artworks, the later are mostly made by themselves or their friends.
    I hope there could be another opportunity in the near future, that I can revisit them with my wife. The 4-days stay of this time is quite short for me. Thank you, Nicola! Thank you, Teddy! Good luck to both of you!

  • We stayed at Nicolas house for 3 days.
    We were placed in a nice room with view over Oxford and had a separated bathroom. During the breakfest and whenever we had nice conversation with our host.
    When we will make an other trip to Oxford, we hope that we could stay there again.

    many thanks Terry! and for the feedback. Really useful.

  • Nicola and Teddy are very kind people and in their house you can feel a warm atmosphere of genuine hospitality. Room and bathroom are clean and all is exactly as it's written in their profile Airbnb. I strongly suggest this accomodation and I'll come back surely here next time. Greetings from Milan!

  • If you are considering a few options in Oxford (like I was), do yourself a favour and stay with Nicola and Teddy. I've always had good experiences with airbnb, but this one was probably the best. The house is wonderful, very charming, and the room you'll use is great. You have the top floor for yourself, which includes the attic room and a private bathroom. The room is very comfortable. Great bed, and a nice desk with a big window and killer views of the roofs and the countryside in the distance. I had to spend some time working at home so this desk was perfect for me (wifi Internet works very well, by the way).

    The house is not in the old center of Oxford, but it is very well connected with buses very near. It is also a nice walk either via lively Cowley road or crossing a beautiful park. I only took a couple of buses in two weeks there, as I enjoyed the walk very much.

    As nice as the house and your room is, the best part is the hosts. Nicola and Teddy are very charming, caring and interesting people. They helped me with my project, got me some great contacts and were always ready to help and make sure everything was OK. I enjoyed very much my breakfast with them (they bake their own bread) and a glass of wine in the evening were we would share the events of the day. They have great stories to tell.

    This is the perfect airbnb room. You can have total privacy if you want, but can also spend some time with wonderful hosts. And for the price of the cheapest room in a run down hostel (or less) you get a wonderful private attic in a gorgeous house. Perfect for one person or a couple. I will not search anywhere else next time in Oxford (hopefully next year).

    Oh nacho!!!! Anyone would think we had paid you vast sums for this lovely review!!!! Thank you so much, and roll on 2015 or whenever you can find time to come back and see us. I hope the rugby is going well, all the best, nicola and teddy

  • Nicola and Teddy are wonderful. Staying at their place was like visiting old friends. The purpose of my stay was to organize my move to Oxford. Nicola and Teddy gave me lots of useful advice, which made my life a lot easier. The room is tastefully decorated and provides privacy since it's located on a separate storey under the roof. Overall, a perfect AirBnB experience, highly recommended.

  • Nicola and Teddy are well traveled, artists, true intellectuals. They were always making sure I had everything I needed, but more than that, the conversations were warm and delightful. Spectacular, is the view from my top floor studio, whether sitting at the oversized desk or the bed. Good sized private bath(with a big tub and skylight).

    Response from Nicola:

    come back soon dearest Joyce! we MISS YOU!!!!

  • The bed could not have been more comfortable, the view could not have been more beautiful, and the hosts could not have been more amazing. Staying with Nicola and Teddy was like having my own little apartment (with personal bathroom!), but also have some very cool roommates around to chat with whenever I wanted. The house is in a great neighborhood with restaurants and pubs nearby as well. Really, you couldn't do better!

    And we absolutely loved having you!!! Come back sooooon!!!! Love N and T

  • Even busy, we had lot fun together as Nicola&Teddy are the most delightful couple as well. We felt at home in their house and loved their hostility. We enjoyed living in the top situated room with a wonderful view.All days we had an extraordinary breakfast with Nicolas´ fresh backed bread. Both were very helpful and care for us in everything. We will come back!
