Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

If you are looking for a central base to use as a springboard to discover all that Oxford has to offer then look no further. The castle is just around the corner, and if you walk a hundred metres further, you’ll find yourself in among the colleges. Inside it’s all modernity – a far cry from the dreamy spires of the city centre, but fitting for a bolthole this close to the buzzing Westgate Shopping Centre. A curated collection of trinkets and bold modern art livens up gallery-white walls and a welcome hamper awaits your arrival, complete with coffee pods. The open-plan living area is a social space to unwind after a day exploring the cobbles and quads, and both bedroom have king-size beds so there’s no fighting over who gets the master. The icing on the cake is the little balcony, just off the dining area, with a bistro set for two.

    The apartment is located in the heart of the city, you are part of the hustle and bustle with the convenience of everything the city has to offer on your doorstep

    This is more of a city base than a home from home, so it's on the small side and lacks extensive amenities

    Stays longer than three weeks will incur an additional cleaning fee

    Though it can sleep up to four people, it feels as though the space is designed for two

About Oxford
