The Space

This house was bought for its location - being so close to the centre of an amazing city like Oxford has really paid off. It's lovely being a short walk away from all that is going on here - so much beauty, learning and green spaces for a bit of peace.

The guest accommodation consists of a double bedroom, in our basement, with an en suite shower room. Our house is small (a price we were happy to pay for the central location) so don't expect a huge and spacious room! It measures 11' x 9' or 3.3m x 2.8m. The room is reached by going downstairs through the garden and has its own entrance (check out the photos). The house is Edwardian outside but super modern inside - minimalist emphasis on style over content.

Guests can expect a clean and comfortable night's stay with a shower/bathroom, towels provided. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in the room, and there are plenty of great cafes nearby. There is a hairdryer provided with a mirror beside it.

There is an electric heater in case you feel chilly in English summers (!) and an iron and ironing board available if wanted.

Unfortunately, only adults can be accommodated here as the room is not set up for children, however little!

Breakfast is provided upstairs which will be home made muesli, juice, fruit in season, home bread bread and marmalade - see photos! Seriously good for you!

Three doors down from the house is one of Oxford's best Lebanese restaurants, and up the road is Oxford's trendy Jericho area full of bars and restaurants. There is an excellent art house cinema 7 minutes walk away - which shows lots of foreign films - see photos.

The bus station (which has 2 lines to London) is 7 minutes walk away and the train station is 12 minutes walk away.

Guest Access

Their own entrance to their room so they can come and go as they please. Breakfast provided upstairs.

Interaction with Guests

I like having breakfast with guests and providing them with a yummy healthy start to the day. I will be present to give keys and introduce guests to their rooms.

The Neighborhood

Jericho is the coolest place to live in Oxford. It is its own little neighbourhood with bars, restaurants, cinema, pubs with music nights AND 5 minutes from the main shopping streets and some of the most beautiful architecture in England - Oxford University.

Getting Around

Everywhere is walkable and bikes can be hired nearby. Guests have used Walton Street Cycles, which is a short walk away.

House Rules

Get in touch nearer the time you are coming to stay to make arrangements about meeting up and handing over keys.
I don't make check in/check out times but when there are guests back to back I expect people to be out of the bedroom by 10.00 am latest so we can clean and get ready for the next guests. You are welcome to leave your luggage safely here, by arrangement.
No hair dyeing in the bathroom - we recently had a guest who did this and the place was covered in brown gunk!
No smoking either!
