About this listing
The best room with a view in Oxford! This 5 starred double room, with its own en suite bathroom, overlooks Oxford and the hills beyond. Within walking distance of the city centre, and well served by frequent buses. Teddy and Nicola welcome you!
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 in the bedroom. The house is owned by Teddy and Nicola and their two cats, and they are 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.
The number 4 bus runs from the Railway Station to the top of Morrell Avenue, which is a 2 minute walk from the house. The 5 and 1 buses also run close by, on the Cowley Road, which is a 6 minute walk from the house.
Guests are have tea and coffee making facilities in the bedroom. They have their own private bathroom adjoining the bedroom, and breakfast is provided in the downstairs kitchen.
Nicola and Teddy were delightful hosts. Peter and I had a very restful time at their home. Our plans for the visit to Oxford were fulfilled and as the weather was so lovely it made it all even better.
Thank you for your hospitality, Peter and Caroline
My stay in Oxford with Nicola and Teddy was wonderful! They are beautiful, open, caring people. I was welcomed right from the start and I felt right at home. I slept great in the large room with great views. The local bus is right around the corner for a quick ride into town. I especially appreciated the fresh breakfast and tips on local sightseeing. I highly recommend you stay here. I know I will be back!
Best airbnb experience. Nicola and John were the best hosts I have ever stayed with - kind, attentive, considerate and easy going. Not only did they go out of their way, I also enjoyed that they are smart, cultured and well read. Their house is an easy walk into Oxford, and the room is a perfect attic room with ensuite. Cosy and charming it looks over rooftops and a green vista. Recommend this to everyone.
Nicola and Teddy were delightful hosts and the room was as expected - very comfortable with a lovely view of the hills of Oxford. They provided welcoming wine, cats to pet, invaluable maps and information about Oxford, and even a ride to the bus stop for the next leg of our trip. We highly recommend them.
Couldn't even wish for a better place to stay in Oxford! Quite and beautiful area with a great location, very convenient for transportation. House itself is just a piece of art, you can see the creativity in every single detail. Nicola and Teddy are so welcoming and friendly, it was my pleasure to stay with them! Made me feel like home :) will definitely choose to stay with Nicola and Teddy for my next trip to Oxford!
This was our first airbnb and we had the most amazing experience staying with Nicola. The house is warm, inviting, full of books and wood sculptures, situated in a quiet leafy neighbourhood and just ten minutes away from the city centre and lively Cowley Road. It was a pleasure to walk down Morell Avenue in the morning smelling the flowers. Nicola is a fantastic host that makes you feel like a welcome friend from the minute you step into the house, she provided us with everything from maps to museum/restaurant recommendations and friendly chat over breakfast. We particularly enjoyed the fruit salad and the handmade bread & jam, do try them if available! We found the room just perfect, the bed is really comfy even for a picky-about-mattresses couple like us, and the bathroom next door gives you total privacy. In short we totally recommend staying here and we will be coming back as soon as possible!
Nicola and Tedy became nice hosts during my stay in Oxford. I learned a lot about the city from them. The room was cozy and my favorite thing was the big window with amazing view during morning and late afternoon. The private bathroom next door i found it also nice. I will definitely come back to stay in this place!

About the Host, Nicola
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.
