A beautiful little cottage. We were four people (one couple and two other adults) staying in Oxford for a wedding, and the house was perfect for what we needed. It's walking distance to Oxford city centre (c. 30 minutes), or a short bus ride or taxi - very easy. Odette was very helpful at check-in and went out of her way to be available when we arrived slightly earlier than we had agreed. Thank you, Mrs Christie and Odette!

We had a great time at this property, which is very well situated and spacious. Bus stop right outside and major supermarkets and shopping street 100m away. Great hosts and very helpful. Look forward to staying again soon!

Attractive traditional cottage set back from the main road (behind a row of shops in Summertown) on a small, quiet private passage. There is one parking space at the end of the passage but this is often taken, so essentially there is no parking (fine if you can park elsewhere in Oxford or are coming on public transport: lots of buses). Cottage was clean and beautifully decorated, but quite chilly (this was in July) and we couldn't get complicated heating system to work. The owner's daughter is a truly lovely person and was very helpful to us, including when our toddler dropped a key through a gap in the wooden floorboards. (We had been warned that it wasn't ideal for small children!)
