A large, sunny twin or family room on the garden side - the first floor flat of a grand Victorian house in a beautiful and peaceful location of the North Oxford Victorian Suburb Conservation Area. Modern furniture: comfortable twin beds, a sofa, a desk, shelves and a wardrobe. Self-served breakfast: fruit, cereals, toast, tea, coffee. Free street parking with visitor's permit.

The space

The room contains two single beds (90 cm wide, with new, sprung mattresses), which can be joined or moved apart. There is also a mattress (kept under one of the beds) in case a family travels with a child (a cot is also available for small children). The room has a desk, should you have any work to do while visiting. Two south-facing sash windows overlook the rear gardens with large trees at the bottom of the garden screening the houses on the next road. In the summer you could sit in a pleasant garden underneath a tree.

Guest access

Guests in my two guest rooms on the garden side share a bathroom off the corridor and an additional WC on the landing. The fully equipped kitchen/ dining is available for self-served breakfast (cereals, toast, butter, marmalade, tea, coffee, fruit). I keep the two rooms on the street side for myself.

Interaction with guests

As little as you'd like but I'm available to answer your questions should you need my help. I'm mostly at home - working on my computer or in the garden.

Other things to note

If you arrive by car do not park in the drive - I'll give you visitor parking permits to park in the road. My flat is on the first floor. Please ring my bell - second from the bottom - with my name KEMP-WELCH.
I provide towels, hair dryer, iron, shower gel & shampoo as well adaptor plugs for UK sockets - no need to bring them.

A lovely location. Wanda welcomed us warmly. The room was clean and warm. We walked across the Parks and went to the Natural History Museum which is fantastic. The home made rhubarb jam was delicious for breakfast.

The room was spacious and clean with a comfortable bed. The host was very friendly and provides a good breakfast. The room was a little cold at night however. Overall I would stay again.

Wanda's property was very much as pictured and described. The room itself was very large and light and served us well. The communal areas (kitchen and bathroom) were also clean and served us very well. The kitchen in particular was a nice treat - well stocked with breakfast foods and coffee/tea. The location of the property was ideal for us, being very near the University Parks, and close to both North and Central Oxford attractions. Wanda was a great host to deal with - answering any and all queries quickly and effectively.

I'm an architect working on private houses. I'm a lot at my computer and I also love working in my garden. I've lived in Oxford for years and can advise you what's worth seeing in and around Oxford.
