Oxford cottages

Known for its 900-year-old university, the city of Dreaming Spires is an ideal destination for a romantic weekend break or a longer stay exploring this historical town and surrounding countryside. Our Oxford cottages are primely situated to take advantage of this beautiful city. Climb to the top of the Carfax Tower where you will be rewarded with spectacular views of this magnificent city and its medieval architecture. In warmer weather take a boat and enjoy the city from the River Isis, or walk or bike along the scenic waterway. If you prefer to people-watch whilst enjoying a picnic, then head to the Botanic Gardens opposite Magdalen College, for a calm city centre oasis. For those wanting to experience more active adventures take a trip aboard the Didcot Steam Railway, or swing by the Go Ape Tree Top adventure near Aylesbury.
