C E N T R A L - O X F O R D : X M A S / N e w Ye a r 's currently available. IDYLLIC RIVERSIDE STUDIO facing Magdalen College Deer Park. Quiet & ROMANTIC.

PEACEFUL RIVERSIDE: WRITERS' HAVEN & LOVERS' NEST

This hidden gem lies in a peaceful enclave close to the High Street and Magdalen College. It's the perfect base from which to explore Oxford, Blenheim Palace, the Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon, Bath, England's wondrous gardens & of course London. Parking optional.

IDYLLIC GARDEN STUDIO NEXT TO MAGDALEN COLLEGE DEER PARK
Enjoy alfresco meals in your own riverside garden while bird-watching or seeing the occasional 'punt' drift by, or stargaze on the double swing...
This large, self-contained studio contains a large desk/table with office chair, fully-equipped kitchen (with Bosch washer and dryer), living area with a 3-seat sofa, beautiful designer shelves, private bathroom (with great shower), double bed (with award-winning mattress), private riverside garden. (For safety reasons, we cannot accept children at the property). Free wifi. A parking space is optional.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Forget the bus (or traipsing through the wind and rain on a bike!) : you can walk everywhere from here! You will have the added advantage of being only minutes away from the High Street, University colleges and libraries, as well as from the London & the Airport coach stop (there are frequent direct services to both Heathrow and Gatwick, and 24/24 coaches to central London).
Also within a gentle stroll are fine restaurants and great cafés (including the best tapas bar in England), concert halls, punt hire, Botanical Gardens, the river Thames (where you might see crews training for the Henley regatta) and - last but not least - a late-night supermarket !

ADDITIONAL GUEST ROOM (visible in the last photo shown here)
A separate guest room is sometimes also available to rent for brief periods (either independently or with the studio). It is on the first floor and South-facing. The sunny room has a double bed, large desk and a shared bathroom.

* Magdalen College is where Oscar Wilde studied and CS Lewis taught. The riverside walk goes through the Deer Park and is the most romantic in the whole of Oxford! All this on your doorstep!

We had a wonderful stay at the garden studio for a period of 5 weeks. The rental is centrally located with easy access to all the wonderful restaurants on Cowley, St. Clements, and the campus. One can take a jog at the Christ Church meadow nearby, or take a walk at the Angels and Greyhound meadow. With the enchanting garden, you will wake up to the sound of birds in the morning, or hear the bells from the church. Since the house is a bit away from the main road, it is sheltered from the noise and you will always get a good night sleep. The apartment has all the things you need such as cooking and washer/dryer, and the host is always responsive and helpful. All in all, we made the right choice to stay here!
