The Neighbourhood

Marlborough Road is a 15 minute walk to the city centre that takes you across the River Thames and up the beautiful street of St Aldate's, past the Town Hall and Christ Church College. There are also frequent buses along the Abingdon Road.
This area has excellent transport links. The Abingdon Road adjoins the Oxford ring road and the A34, with easy access to the M40. The apartment is therefore an excellent choice for visitors looking for access to South Oxfordshire's business and science parks, such as the Oxford Science Park, Milton Park, Culham Science Park, Abingdon, Didcot and Harwell.

The adjacent Abingdon Road runs parallel to the River Thames, with lovely views of the college sports grounds and boathouses all along one side and delightful riverside walks. Punts and rowing boats can be hired at Folly Bridge, five minutes away. Hinksey Park, with an excellent outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and a lake is one minute away at the end of Marlborough Road, and the water meadows which lie behind the apartment are also lovely for walking in.

Stylish row house, the kitchen equipment could be a bit better, but there is a dishwasher. Very good quiet location, you can walk to the city centre in 20 minutes.
Chris - May 2023 - Air B&B

Small house in a peaceful area of Oxford. At a reasonable walking distance to the city center and also located close to the river and a meadows. A very good choice to have a quiet time in Oxford.

Apr 2023

Property was very clean, in a safe, quiet neighbourhood close to bus routes. Upstairs sitting room with gorgeous view of meadow was a highlight. Property manager very responsive. Description might note the 2 sets of steep stairs would be daunting for someone with mobility issues. Very enjoyable stay; high recommendation
