Osney View presents a spacious family residence featuring three bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and an enclosed private rear garden.

The expansive ground floor boasts an open-plan living and dining area, complete with seating at the dining table for up to six guests. The dining area seamlessly connects to the living space, furnished with two ample and cosy sofas. The well-appointed kitchen is equipped with everything necessary for a brief stay of a few days, weeks, or an extended period. Two of the bedrooms are situated on the first floor, while the third is a charming attic room furnished with two single beds. The secluded garden with seating area offers a peaceful setting for enjoying the warmer summer months.

Positioned in the Osney Island locale of Oxford, the property lies in a quiet, residential area that is just a 10-minute stroll from Oxford railway station and a 15-minute walk from the city centre. Its strategic location grants effortless access to numerous Oxford colleges (such as Said Business School), as well as the array of shops, eateries, and the Westgate shopping centre within the city. Osney Island derives its name from the presence of the River Thames along one side and a tributary to the Thames along another.

Aidan - Oct 2023 - Air B&B

Leading up to check in date, the host was very responsive and gave crystal clear on instructions, directions, and guidelines. I had visited Oxford once before so I knew most of the area but I loved the location for this house. Perfect spot! Quiet, easily walkable to the city center, train station, and bus stops/station(Gloucester Green). The bedrooms and bathroom were nice and spacious with decent water pressure for the shower. The Hollybush (pub about 2 min walk) has great food! Good pizza and dinners for a meal if you aren’t sure what to eat and fun trivia nights as well. There was some construction going on by the train station during our stay blocking car and bus traffic but it is only a 10 min walk from the train station. All in all, loved this place! Stay here for an Oxford adventure!

Julius - Jun 2023 - Air B&B

Beautiful terraced house in Oxford, very quiet location, but also a little further from the center, train station and bus station but within walking distance.

Nice flat in great location for us. Had a little problem with heating system, but host came out on New Year’s Day to fix issue promptly. Would stay there again.

Jan 2023

Excellent location next to Oxford train Station (10 mins walking). Good links for buses to city centre and Headington. Quiet area, no traffic noise can be heard (except train horns infrequently ).
