2 adjacent single rooms + 1 bathroom. Top floor (plenty of stairs - keep luggage small!)
For visiting Oxford or the Cotswolds with a friend, these 2 rooms together are ideal. A card table with 2 chairs in one room & kettle for a cuppa, a desk and more comfy chair in the other make it ideal to relax & chat. Parking available for a few days on street nearby. Look up Zipcar for one example of car rental if needed or local bike hire. Easy for buses, rail, access to Hethrow airport - ask me.

The space

Close 2 central Oxford bus & train, easy to Heathrow. Perfect base for day trips to Oxford and Cotswolds. Direct bus to Blenheim Palace (S3) or Zipcar hire or bike hire nearby. You will need a car to explore the more remote parts of the Cotswolds.
2 rooms and shared bathroom give you space to relax and chat at the end of your day.
Help yourself to a simple self-serve breakfast of muesli, cereals, bread and spreads, fruit, tea, coffee in the morning and 'go' enjoy your day!

The house is filled with ongoing paintings (mostly done by family), plants, 'objets' of interest, various projects which change throughout the year.

Guest access

2 Single bedrooms, with 1 bathroom. Own tea & coffee making facility if wished, main kitchen for self serve breakfast (in mornings only - usually ).
Suit busy visitors who have a sight-seeing agenda or conference etc and are out and about.

Interaction with guests

Happy to share a cuppa or glass of something if you wish and advise on what to see etc...Also, I know that sometimes my guests are so busy, they often just want to chillax in their rooms - It's however you wish.

Helena was a very good host - and very kindly accommodated us when our arrival time changed. We had everything we needed and I had the best night's sleep in ages!

We enjoyed our stay at Helena's - the walk along the canal from the station is beautiful. The house is full of art and the rooms are very pretty. Breakfast (DIY toast, fruit, coffee, tea) was fantastic.

Friendly, accommodating host in a pleasant location; would recommend for anyone wanting to stay somewhere quiet and relaxed within easy reach of central Oxford.

Helena's is a very welcoming house to stay in. It's not central, up in Summertown, but somehow you get a better sense of Oxford for staying there than if you were plonked in the busy centre of the city. We had a two-night stay while we were visiting the university open days. Helena was a charming host, intellectually curious, and greatly encouraging to our son. Highly recommended.
