Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Oxford
Wonderful Cottage-Style 3 Bed House
Beautiful mid-terrace on a no-thru-road, with great transport links to Oxford, cosmopolitan Cowley and the River Thames. Two double bedrooms, a nursery with cot bed and a single futon (or double luxury air bed) in the lounge, well equipped kitchen diner and lovely, green south facing garden.
The whole house has some great period features: stripped wood floors, picture rails, an open log fire in the dining room and a wood burner in the lounge.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is a good size with king size bed. The second bedroom is available most of the year, and has a single day bed that easily converts to a long king size bed. The nursery has a cot bed suitable for children up to around 3 years of age and a selection of toys and books. Both have blackout blinds (the front of the house gets great, and early, morning light!) while the bathroom has a roll-top bath with rose shower over.
Downstairs, the lounge has 2 comfortable sofas and that wonderful wood burner, with a large bay window to the front. It's the perfect place for a morning coffee. The dining room has an oval table that seats 6 with ease, as well as a small church pew looking out through French doors into the garden.
The kitchen has a single oven, microwave combi oven, fridge, and farmhouse sink. There is also a magi mix and a bread machine, as well as al the necessary utensils, pots and pans and crockery you could possibly need!
The back garden has 2 outhouses, one is the original outdoor loo (currently out of action, and full of bits and bobs), the other houses a large freezer. There is a bench (that gets the morning light at breakfast), and a swing chair (that gets the afternoon light and provides a very pleasing effect with a GnT!). The patio and dining table and chairs get the very last of the evening light and is great for summer dinners.
You will have the house to yourselves for the duration of your stay. We will leave you some space in wardrobes and in drawers, bedding and towels will be left for your use too. Basic food is left in the kitchen, but if you use it please replace it. You can help yourself to our books and games, but just don't take them with you!

The house is rented out while we are away, but close friends manage it for us and will arrange key collection/drop off, and take an inventory when you leave.
