Smart, spacious house

5 of 5
This house felt new and immaculate throughout whilst being very homely too. The owners had even put up lovely Christmas decorations everywhere. The two double bedrooms and twin room were spacious, quiet and comfortable. There were also sofa beds in the sitting room and small ground floor bedroom. The conservatory and small enclosed garden were also very appealing. A six seater taxi with Royal Cars took us into the centre of Oxford for £11.
