Interaction with guests
My husband and I live at the house and will be staying there when you visit. My husband is a University Professor. I will be there to welcome you, to provide breakfast, to answer any questions you may have and to help you feel at home in Oxford.
This classic Victorian 4 storey house is located within the University area of Oxford, very near St Hugh's, St Anthony's and St Anne's Colleges. North Parade, once the northern perimeter of King Charles' army during the civil war, now a lively street with cafes, pubs, shops and a regular farmer's market, is literally round the corner. It is a wonderful, old, vibrant, yet peaceful part of the city.
The walk into town is easy or, if you would prefer, buses go every few minutes from just across the road. Northbound buses to Bicester Village Designer Outlet leave from 50 yards away and for Blenheim Palace from nearby on Woodstock Road.
The beautiful University Park is 5 minutes away, with the bohemian area of Jericho and the river Thames just 10 minutes in the other direction.
Buses to Heathrow and Gatwick airports go from Gloucester Green bus station which is 15 minutes walk away or a few minutes in a taxi. If you need parking this can be arranged either on site or round the corner.
