Hanna was great at taking our booking and answering any questions. The property itself is beautiful, easy to get to from London, plenty of room for our whole group, dog-friendly, has all the facilities that you need and completely idyllic. The gardens, tennis courts and pools were perfect. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and we hope to come back again next year!

It exceeded our expectations in every way. The rooms are light, spacious, modern, and airy, while the bones - floors, fireplaces, moldings - retain the original historic charm. On a quiet street and with a lovely yard, the home was a perfect retreat at the end of each day's site seeing. My only regret is that we could not stay the entire summer!

The contact with the owner went very smoothly and the studio was clean and exactly as described/shown on the photos. It can, however, get a bit noisy sometimes in the rooms on the backside of the building, as they overlook a courtyard where there's a parking and containers, but I experienced this as just a very minor flaw. Still, the apartment is located right in the centre of Oxford, which is a huge advantage to discover the city, and there are many good pubs and restaurants nearby. All in all, it was a very good stay!
