Victorian Terraced House with garden, Overlooking The Canal in Central Oxford.

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cottage in Central Oxford, Oxfordshire, England, UK - Literally Minutes From Ashmolean Museum, Bus Station And Mainline Train Station

This Victorian terraced house is perfectly located for visiting the numerous attractions of Oxford and is extremely convenient for shops and restaurants as well. It is in the vibrant city centre, though you can walk up the canal to the Anchor Inn, and Port Meadow which is a beautiful open space. The house is wifi, and can sleep 10 but is comfortable with 6/7. The table seats this number best! There is no parking at the property and you have no need for a car as it is straightforward to get buses or the train in less than 3 minutes from the house, to anywhere from Edinburgh to Bournemouth and London Paddington. Book trains in advance from GWR. The Playhouse has interesting shows always, and is worth checking out in advance, and the newly refurbished and effectively rebuilt Ashmolean Museum is something not to miss. All in all, you will find no other house so centrally located and where you can be entirely independent and self catering.

About pandora maxwell

Hi, I have owned this house for some years, since my children were at University here in Oxford and I still live here with my younger children. I enjoy offering the short lets as it means people can stay in the city centre for a fraction of the price of several hotel rooms and I am always keen to help guests find interesting things to do.

I have a small dog and 2 cats that have gone awol recently

pandora maxwell purchased this house in 2001

Why pandora maxwell chose Oxford

I had children at University in the city and it seemed like a good idea as rentals are always in demand.

What makes this house unique

Really central house within easy walking distance of everywhere, genuinely! about 300 yards from the Ashmolean museum. Wifi, nice garden (in the summer) washer and dryer; tv and so on.

flexible accommodation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In general, people love the central location and being able to walk everywhere. Teens love it as they can walk to movies, or clubs. So unusual to be so central and not need a car!
