Me and My Luxury Bed & Breakfast Here in Oxford

It used to be our family home until the children as they do left home for the wider world and their adventures in life.  Now this ‘home’ serves very well as a convenient large modern house for guests visiting Oxford and its many attractions.

I have many reviews especially on Trip Advisor where guests boast about my spotless rooms and delicious breakfast.  All this enables you, my guests, to go about your day for what you intended.

All my rooms are  equipped with flat screen TV, free wifi and luxury bed and bedding. All of the rooms are non-smoking so always smell fresh and clean.

For more information on what is available for breakfast GO HERE.

There is a common area in the hallway where you can wait for your companions or while away your time reading the literature all about Oxford and don’t forget to purchase your map of Oxford so you don’t aimlessly waste your time away (unless that is what you really want!). The map is great value for money as you can use it to get your souvenirs and presents to take back home with discounts from advertisers included in the map.

So, if you’re ready BOOK HERE NOW.
