A stylish, spacious, light, recently re-decorated double room in the heart of vibrant, cool Jericho, with its cafes, pubs, restaurants and cinema. Close to bus and train stations. Near colleges, town centre, river, canal and beautiful Port Meadow.

The space

This surprisingly light and spacious basement room is the ideal location for professionals, holiday makers or parents visiting their student daughter/son, looking for a comfortable, quiet place to stay whilst working or visiting Oxford.

A continental breakfast (home made bread and marmalade as well as pastries and fruit, tea and/or coffee) is included, as is wifi. There is a garden seating area with table and chairs available for use on sunny days. Parking permits are available for a fee of £5 a day or £20 per week. All towels and linen supplied.

The recently re-decorated room is furnished with interesting antiques to make a comfortable room which is cool and airy in the summer and warm and cosy when it gets colder.

I should mention that the steps down to the basement room are the original steps down to the old coal hole and so a little steep. Older people may find them challenging. Also, the ceiling is not quite usual ceiling height - but this should not be a problem unless you are unusually tall !

The extremely comfortable wooden bed with new memory foam mattress has a bedside light and non allergenic pillows. Bed linen is crisp, 100% cotton. There is a desk and chair, a comfortable chair for reading, a full length mirror (made from an antique Indian door frame) and a small wardrobe with space for hanging clothes.

There is a shower room next door with a toilet and hand basin.

Although no television is supplied, the complimentary wifi facilitates the use of accessing catch-up TV websites or applications. There is an ipod dock with speakers.

Guest access

Guests will access the room through the house. The room is located downstairs from the living room. Continental breakfast will be served in the dining area.

Interaction with guests

I am always happy to answer questions or give any advice or help that I can.

Anne is a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome in her lovely home. Jericho is a very trendy and popular place to stay in Oxford. A great place for bars, restaurants and cinema, close to Port Meadows but also Oxford city centre and all its attractions. The accommodation is highly recommended, clean , really comfortable bed and private. We hope to return. Anne has a lovely Labrador called Jess who is very friendly and we had a wonderful stay for our sons graduation, despite the weather! Thank you.

Anne is just awesome host. The stay at her place was perfect in all the ways. Very cosy room with all amenities made us feel at home. She serves breakfast with so much of love and affection. She goes out of way to help her guests in best possible manner. I cannot stop showing the pictures of her beautiful kitchen to my mom and other family members. She is so full of life that you eventually end up admiring her. I would strongly recommend her home to anyone who is looking for a homely stay away from their home.

I have recently returned to Oxford from living and working overseas for more years that I care to count ! I was most recently living in Malawi for three years. Before that I lived in Cambodia for sixteen years ! Prior to that in Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Venezuela, Tanzania, Morocco, Germany.
I am a teacher - of French (despite being English), and love all things French ! I am currently enjoying tutoring students for GCSEs, A levels and the IB Diploma.
I am divorced with three grown-up daughters, one of whom lives in Oxford, the other two in London. And then there are my two gorgeous grand children - I am quite besotted ! Lastly, we have a new family member - Jess, my golden labrador puppy, a real little character and quite adorable.
I enjoy travelling and exploring, food and cooking, gardening and growing vegetables on my allotment. I love walking on Port Meadow and in the Oxfordshire countryside. And in the summer I really enjoy swimming in the river.
