It was so relaxing, easy to walk into the centre of Oxford but able to stay in this little street as it's got everything. Parking was okay, we were lucky and got the free space. The landlord was very helpful and provided us was the basics that was fab. We went to the Rose and Crown across the road for lunch and the landlord was very friendly and helpful. We spent Saturday night in the Indian restaurant across the road, gorgeous food. It was a trio on a girls weekend catch up and it was spot on. Will be back with my husband as I loved it and I already miss it.

A short way down the Woodstock Road from the A40 and with a choice of bus-stops nearby, it gave us easy access to the centre of town as well as to the surrounding country. The off-street parking was a plus. The flat was quiet, comfortable and well-equipped, and we would be happy to use it again.
