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 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.
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.
No pets & no smoking in the house but you can smoke in the garden or the driveway. Breakfast (orange juice, cereals, milk, toast, butter, jam, marmalade, honey, tea & coffee) is self-service. Your dirty dishes after breakfast go in the dishwasher and the food back in the fridge.
Guests staying at least a week have a 5 % discount but breakfast is not provided (they can use washing machine and cooking facilities). If you would like to leave your luggage and collect it after check-out time let me know. On leaving please leave the keys in the downstairs cloakroom - if I'm not at home.
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.
