Kholod - Oct 2023 - Air B&B

Beautiful place as described, the checking in and checking out instruction were very easy. The team was very helpful with us.

Wendy - Aug 2023 -

A very pleasant stay with everything needed for a weeks holiday. Very comfortable, very good appliances, nice courtyard, everything provided, bus stop outside, 10 mins into Oxford city. The road outside was quite busy.

Pan - Nov 2022 - Air B&B

The listing is beautiful and feels very homey. My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. It is conveniently located opposite of a bus stop that goes directly into town. The electronic keypads at the gate and the room door made it very convenient to check-in and get in/out. Heating worked perfectly, allowing us to adjust heating based on changing weather conditions outside.

Warm and modern cottage, the large living room can see the road outside the window, the room is modernly furnished, the kitchen tableware is also very complete, a good cottage, will stay again next time!

Jul 2022

A very convenient place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford. We were without a car but the bus service is very frequent and we visited Blenheim Palace a 20 min. bus journey from the stop outside the apartment so location ideal. Beds are comfortable and the apartment warm. On a purely personal note and not really a criticism some comfy seating to sink into after a days walking would have been nice instead of the more formal upright ones. We would definitely stay again though.

Spacious and clean. Well looked after.
