The B&B is in a very good location and the premises are excellent, as is the welcome from the owners. I fully recommend the Abodes of Oxford to anybody. 5 out of 5 rating.
We stayed for 3 nights and were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. We arrived a little early and were able to access our room and leave our car parked there. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom lovely, the WiFi access was very good, breakfast was good ( cereal, toast, fresh fruit, yoghurt, tea and coffee). We were able to come and go and the walk to Central Oxford was along a pretty stream and only took about 5 - 10 minutes. Thanks very much to our hosts.
The room was very beautiful and comfortable. I enjoyed my stay there. The hosts were lovely as well.
I booked this accommodation for our Supervisor and he was very impressed, the whole process of booking to arriving at the accommodation was handled very smoothly - I would use again, thank you.
The photos and info provided are accurate. This is a cozy, well-furnished single room and very modern private bathroom with a large tub. Anne and Martin are very welcoming, thoughtful and friendly. There are bus stops very close by that can take you into the city centre. The room can get cold overnight but there are extra blankets available. The room is up a flight of stairs (something to note for those with mobility considerations).
Room is a little small but ok for a short stay and the host is quite talkative which we liked but of course depends on personal preference. The sleeping room does have a tv but is too small to sit comfortably.
We enjoyed a very pleasant stay at a warm and friendly family home. The room and bathroom were both presented to a very high standard.
Wonderfully looked after by the owner. I would be pleased to recommend this property. Easy public transport into Oxford.
My colleague and I really enjoyed our stay with Barbara. We had a clean and cosy single room each and shared a bathroom. Barbara thoughtfully asked what we would like for breakfast and chatted with us in the mornings. She has a quirky and warm home. Overall a great spot to stay in Oxford especially if you want to be in the vicinity of Cowley. Thanks and hope to stay again!
Barbara's Artist Cottage is the place to be, should you be looking for a homely abode with a lovely guest in just-out-of-the-centre Southern Oxford. A very comfortable room decorated with paintings - as the rest of the house - and fitted in with a desk to study. The bathroom is shared, but is spotless, as is the rest of the house. Barbara is a great host who is also a great artist and has many stories to tell. She will make you feel at ease and she provides all that is needed for breakfast! Definitely a place to stay!
Very nice place, feel like at home. A pleasant experience. A very quiet home, clean, confortable and cozy.
If anything, the towels were too soft, we had trouble drying ourselves :) No complaints friendly...
Great experience with the hosts! Very clean and comfortable room. It is extremely well connected to the city.
An excellent B&B in a very good location. It is home from home. Always feel very welcome and a good breakfast is available.
I highly recommend this B&B for its peaceful, pretty river location, 5-10 minutes walk from Center of Oxford, delightful hosts, good double room, with a very nice Shower / Bathroom & Toilet
