Just a few minutes from the university, we're not exaggerating when we say this 17th-century home places you in the heart of Oxford. Spread over three floors and with each room having its own ensuite and ultra comfy mattresses, you'll enjoy plenty of time to yourselves here. The unique design of the living area, where floral patterns abound, makes for a memorable spot to socialise, while the shared garden allows for alfresco dining – weather permitting, of course. As a bonus, two bedrooms offer views of Oxford Castle, while the excellent location means you can easily explore the rest of the city's attractions – museums, shopping, theatres and more are all a short walk away.


The Plum Promise

  • No time for average – We reject thousands of homes worldwide, so you don't have to.
  • Hosts we know – With track records of high-quality hosting.
  • Rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot – Exceptional service before, during and after your stay.
