Oxfordshire, England, United Kingdom
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 enjoy Oxford and to explore Blenheim Palace, the Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon, Bath, England's wondrous gardens & of course London! The large, self-contained studio includes a fully-equipped kitchen (with washer and dryer), living area with a 3-seat sofa, private bathroom (with great shower), double bed (with award-winning mattress), desk/table and an ergo dynamic office chair. Visiting academics have plenty of shelf-space & there is a large choice of books, games, puzzles, etc. for the amusement of all. Guest parking optional. Free wifi. TRANQUIL GARDEN FACING MAGDALEN COLLEGE DEER PARK & ANGEL MEADOW Enjoy alfresco meals in your own private riverside garden while bird-watching or seeing the occasional Oxford punt drift by, or stargaze on the double swing. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION Forget the bus or traipsing through the rain on a bike : you can walk everywhere from here. You have the advantage of being only minutes away from the High Street, University colleges and Libraries, as well as from the London & Airports coach stop (there are frequent services to both) and direct buses to the John Radcliffe Hospital. 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. INTERESTED? Please indicate your dates, length of stay and number of occupants so we can provide the correct rental rate. Note that for safety reasons children cannot be accommodated given the immediate proximity of the river. HOME EXCHANGES We ONLY consider exchanges with Copenhagen and with water-front properties in Sydney (Oz Summertime). * 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.
