City on your doorstep! Sunny 2nd floor bedroom in renovated Victorian cottage with own very large bathroom, behind Oxford Castle. All Oxford University locations within walking distance. Please note max multiple occupancy is a week, singles 3months
This is a ‘tardis’ Victorian cottage, renovated not gutted, with many features and fittings from the original 1890s cottage (formerly belonging to Christchurch College as college staff accommodation). Spacious study bedroom (Victorian built) for one or two guests, west-facing with blackout blinds, fine for three guests for a few nights. Very large bath/showerroom (Edwardian built)with skylight, NAmerican power shower. Victorian cottages have narrow staircases (as in mediaeval colleges!)

I provide tea and coffee but not breakfast unless asked but I find guests haven't read this! So there is usually something to eat in the kitchen on the counter in the morning (see reviews) so no-one has a hungry start to their Oxford day.
You have your own keys. Owner/concierge lives on the modern 3rd floor, longtime local resident and happy to be as helpful or as invisible as wanted, works from home, 2 daughters around out of term. Friendly small pug on ground floor. Shared downstairs dining area and seating are by fire.
Room has one bed but a chair bed is available on request for children up to 16, plus a third full mattress plus topper can be added to make three beds. Can be flexible with check-in,check-out times but please check first.
Please note maximum booking for multiple persons is one week. Single person bookings may be accepted up to a term in length.
This is a bnb bed-n-breakfast that will suit you if you are looking for a BASE in the middle of old Oxford that has a quiet comfortable bed with space to spread out, a hot shower in the modern bit of an old 'Henley' house with educational or work commitments during the day, or as a weekend break. Oxford is a city best navigated on foot or cycle and this room is ideally placed. A brief overview of the purpose of your trip is very helpful at time of booking!
Hope to meet you!
