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.

  • Une belle maison de style dans un quartier tranquille d'Oxford, des hotes charmants comme savent l' etre nos amis Anglais...Une chambre à l'étage douillette, donnant sur le jardin, tout était réuni pour que notre séjour soit mémorable...et délicieux...

  • Perfect ! Nicola and Teddy are a charming couple. Easy to get into Oxford centre using a nearby bus stop ( 2 pounds 80 p return with a frequent service ) I hope to keep in contact for the future.

  • The house is charming-you have a light and airy room overlooking the roof tops and distant countryside-also a private (email hidden) is so peaceful and cosy.
    Nicola and Teddy are perfect hosts-welcoming,warm and generous-they already feel like old friends.Breakfast is a 5 star meal.
    I visit Oxford regularly and am already looking forward to staying with them again-home from home.
    My first experience with Airbnb-the rest have a lot to live up to!

  • I spent a lovely week with Nicola and Teddy. The room and bathroom suited my needs very well and were both very comfortable. The rest of the house is just as lovely. Nicola and Teddy were also very accommodating of my needs - putting on their delicious breakfast early, giving me great instructions from the coach stop etc. I would definitely recommend this place to someone looking for a room in Oxford.

  • Nicola and Teddy are a delightful couple whose warmth and hospitality match up their beautiful Victorian house. The very quiet and cosy bedroom (with plenty of enjoyable books to read!) offers a wonderful setting from which you can explore the city, both town (the lively Cowley district) and Gown. The proximity of a bus stop to the city centre makes visiting Oxford easy and their house, away from the hubbub of the city centre, is a quiet haven. Plenty of nice walks by the park too. Highly recommended!

  • Nicola and Teddy are two wonderful hosts... Not only do they perfectly mix the french way of sharing a glass of wine in late afternoon and the english way of having an english breakfast (even if the guests are late waking birds) but they also are joyful people, always happy to share a moment with their guest.

    The room stands at the top of the house and offers a magnificent view on the oxfordshire. The house (although a bit far by feet from the town center) is well deserved by buses on Morelle Avenue and could fit if Alice's wonderland. No need to tell that waking up in such an environment is by itself worth the trip ;)

  • 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.

  • 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!

About
We are a couple, my husband is a sculptor, I am a writer and artist, we live in a lovely road at the top of a hill overlooking oxford, with two cats. ideally, we would love to have two kinds of guests - the b and b tourist or professional (we are near Brookes Univ and also three big hospitals) and also a longer stay family who might want to rent the whole house in the spring or summer, for low rent in exchange for looking after two cats. we are used to having people in our home, having run a big residential arts centre in France for twenty years.
