Please note the dining table in the kitchen seats up to 8 guests comfortably. Please note that there are steps down into the back garden. I live in Headington and I am happy to help you during your stay. Central Headington is a thriving community very close to Oxford city centre, (about 1.5 miles from the High Street). There are excellent bus routes from London and London airports and into Oxford. Headington is very well serviced by traditional pubs, cafes, bistros, parks and supermarkets (Waitrose). The Churchill, John Radcliffe and Nuffield Hospitals are located very nearby as is the Old Road Campus of the University of Oxford and the main campus for Oxford Brookes University. 5 - 10 minute walk from the Oxford Tube, X90 and Heathrow/Gatwick Express Parking for 1 car at the rear of the property. On road parking for additional vehicles may be arranged for a small charge (please ask). Please be aware that the parking bay at the rear of the house is accessed under an arch, the maximum height is 2.12m and width is 2.25m. If you are unsure, please ask it is usually possible to arrange on street parking permits, this will incur a small charge. The house is located on a one way street, with access from London Road. The London Road end of New High Street is host to a vibrant artisan produce and farmers market on Saturday mornings. Access to the house, including by car, is unaffected.

You will be amazed at the size of the sculpture in the roof and surprised by the number of people photographing it when you open the kitchen blinds BUT it is well worth the experience. The house is beautiful inside and well equipped. The accommodation...More
