This family home is well-located to explore one of England’s most beautiful cities. Though parts of the house could be freshened up a bit, you still have everything you need here for a comfortable stay, including a nicely sized garden with a couple of seating areas – perfect for enjoying a family barbecue. Besides, you’ll want to make the most of what this historic city has to offer. A thirty-minute walk or twenty-minute bus ride takes you into the heart of Oxford, adorned with its iconic colleges, Gothic buildings and a plethora of eateries.

Home truths

    While one of the bathrooms isn’t photographed, we expect the style and quality to be consistent with the rest of the home.

    The single beds can be zipped up together to create a king-size bed.

    The traditional, lived-in decor here might not be to everyone's taste. It feels a little dated in parts. We also think the outside of the house could do with a lick of paint.

    We think some areas of this home could do with a refresh. In particular, the sofa looks a little tired.
