A small but VERY well furnished flat for one or two persons. Everything is clean and well provided -- two flat-screen televisions, one in the living area, the other in the bedroom. Because it is down a side lane, there is virtually NO noise from traffic or passing pedestrians, even on a Friday or Saturday evening. Less than five minutes walk to the town centre of Headington, with shops, restaurants, cafes, newsagent, bank etc., plus the bus stop for travel into the city centre (every ten minutes or less). If you stay there, make an effort to find the 'hidden pub, The Butchers Arms, in a rabbit warren of back streets to the south-west of the flat -- good food, great beer, and very friendly landlords.
I went on business to Oxford and stayed at this cosy apartment for a week. It is a beautiful property with all you need for a comfortable stay (perhaps I missed a dishwasher but it wasn't essential). Next to London Rd in Headington where you can find supermarkets, shops, cafes, restaurants or traditional pubs.
Nice furniture (mix of modernism and tradition), wooden floors and both well equipped kitchen and bathroom. Fantastic heating for the cold evenings while enjoy the flat TV with hundreds of channels, including Netflix!!
The off-road parking space is really valuable when you have a car; if not, there are lots of buses to the city centre a few steps from the apartment.
Greg, the owner, will meet you on arrival and help with all the appliances.
I'm sure I will stay here when I go back to Oxford!
I stayed in this apartment during the month of April and it was really convenient. It's not far from central Oxford.
We arrived in Oxford on a Tuesday evening and rang Greg. He promptly met us at the property which conveniently had parking right outside. Greg was friendly and helpful, spent 10 minutes showing us how everything worked and then suggested a great asian restaurant for dinner that night, right around the corner in central Headington. He had even provided us with some fresh bread, cornflakes, and OJ for breakfast which we were delighted about! The apartment was newly refurbished, very clean and had everything necessary for a brilliant stay, including Apple TV and Netflix. We stayed for about 10 days and any time we had a question Greg promptly replied with some good advice, otherwise we were left to our own devices which suited us perfectly. The central heating in the apartment kept us very cozy during some cold winter nights. Were I ever to need a place to stay in Headington again this would definitely be it. Thanks a million Greg!
