Sparkling clean10 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

Very close to Oxford city centre (20 mins walk, 10 mins bus, 5 mins bike) and on main bus route, a lovely self-contained little house at the bottom of our garden. Quiet and peaceful with small garden area of its own. Bedroom, sitting room, shower room and kitchen corner. Car parking across road. Bike shed. Also close to towpath for a picturesque walk through ancient Iffley village with it's Norman Church into Oxford City Centre.

A lovely little cottage just outside of Oxford centre. Has everything you need for a comfortable stay in a cosy 35sq metres. The photo album showing how Fran and family built the cottage themselves makes it extra special ;)

Fran and Pete's straw bale house and garden was an integral part of an enchanting six-week stay to study at Oxford University: tranquil, spacious, and bright (especially restful after a long day at the libraries). I loved walking back and forth into town (though there's a bus acr…
