A comfy place for your stay in Oxford, in a peaceful + spacious 1930's house just north of Summertown, on direct bus route to city centre. Modern + clean with a warm homely welcome. Comfortable single bed, desk + chair, hanging space + shelves, quality shower, + breakfast. Small + bright, with morning sun.
1 mile to cafes + shops in Summertown, 2.8 miles along Banbury Road to Oxford city centre (frequent buses), 1 mile to new Oxford Parkway for London trains.
Check-in is between 5pm - 8pm.

The space

I have other rooms - if this one isn't available or suitable for you. Please note that this room has the wifi modem in it, which is on all of the time.

Guest access

You'll have access to the kitchen for your breakfast (help yourself to continental breakfast until 9.30am). You can store a small amount of food in the fridge (sorry not the freezer and definitely not in your bedroom). You can eat a light meal in the kitchen in the evening (microwave is available for heating food), and also make yourself tea/coffee (which I supply). This is a busy, working household and the kitchen isn't available during the daytime - I expect that you will generally be out in the daytime in any case. Your bedroom and the bathroom beside (shared) is on the first floor. Washing machine & dryer by arrangement and £5 each. Please do all laundry downstairs in utility room. Keep it simple and all will be well!

Interaction with guests

Either myself or a friend will greet you and will be available during your stay.

Other things to note

Nice quiet neighbourhood, yet ideally situated with excellent travel links by car, train or bus, located midway between Oxford Parkway and Summertown. A 3 minute walk to the main bus route on Banbury Road, with frequent buses to city centre, both railway stations, Oxford Brookes, + Said Business School. (It's appox 15 mins to city centre, 5 mins to Oxford Parkway Train Station for trains to London Marylebone and Bicester Shopping Outlet). Excellent road connections including M40 to the Midlands and London. North Oxford is also really handy for trips to the Cotwolds and the renowned Blenheim Palace.

Hilly is the best host I have ever seen. She always friendly and kind. She's sister and friends also very nice. The location is also good which can easily to catch buses to oxford city center and even can walk to summer town. And you just walk within 10 minutes can find a lovely park with good views . The room is small but very clean and comfortable. I am lucky to stay this lovely room in oxford.

Hilly's house is set in a quiet residential area. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and I had all the amenities needed for a four-night stay. The location is only a 15-minute walk into Summertown, where there are a number restaurants and boutique shops for those wanting to stay local. It's also just as easy to get into Oxford city by foot - around 40 minutes or so. Alternatively, there are a number of buses that head straight to the city. The Oxford University Museum of Natural History is well worth a visit. Port Meadow is also within reachable walking distance, for those who enjoy long walks and traditional country pubs. Hilly was a wonderful host - welcoming, helpful and considerate. I highly recommend her place to other guests! Thanks for everything Hilly, see you soon :-)

Hilly was a wonderful host, I felt completely at home and she did everything she could to help me. We had some lovely conversations and she makes great company but she also respected my privacy and didn't disturb me when I was in the room. The location is perfect, very quiet and easy access into central Oxford (bus takes 15-20 minutes) and also to Oxford parkway station. The room was very comfortable and I slept really well! Thanks so much Hilly!
