Midsomer Cottage - Riverside village with easy city access

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Oxford, Oxfordshire, England

Interaction with guests
Our aim is for you to have a relaxed and enjoyable stay, and over the past eight years we've built a reputation for helping to facilitate just that! Our manager Cheryl lives to the left of the cottage, and will aim to meet you when it's mutually convenient. So we ask you to inform her of your likely arrival time in advance. If she can't be there she will leave a key under the doormat, and call to meet you at her earliest convenience. There are two Sainsburys nearby, plus a Co-Op, plus the village shop (early closing Wednesdays). Our WiFi is excellent.

About the neighbourhood
Nearby there are two hotels, two pubs and a village shop. It is a pleasant 30 minute walk along the tow path to the city, where there is a wide variety of restaurants and shops, and of course the beautiful university colleges.
Getting around
A feature of life in Oxford is an easy bus service to airports, a good train service, and plenty of taxis. However perhaps a bike will seem most appropriate once you see how many there are in regular use.
Car not needed
How to get there
Oxford is easily accessed from all leading airports by train, bus or taxi. .By car from M1, M40, A34.From Oxford Ring Road look for the Littlemore round-a-bout, and take the Iffley Road towards the city. Pass through Rose Hill, down hill, through traffic lights, and immediately left into Iffley Village. Straight across mini round-about into Church Way, and Midsomer Cottage is on the right, opposite the entrance to Hawkwell House Hotel.
