Contemporary B&B set in an urban but quite location situated 15min by bus from central Oxford. We offer value & quality stays with modern clean amenities.


Oxford B&B is a family run accommodation offering well-presented bedrooms with both ensuite and shared shower facilities. Located two and a half miles from Oxford city centre and only a short distance from the River Thames which makes a pleasant walk into the centre of Oxford. It is located close to the Oxford colleges, Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds. London, Stonehenge and Shakespeare's Stratford are about one hour by car and Bicester Village, chic outlet shopping, is also nearby.

Easy access into the City centre via a bus service which stops 2 minutes away from the guest house and takes approximately 15 mins journey time to Oxford centre. Buses run every 15 minutes.  Complimentary drop off or pick up from Oxford stations can be arranged with the owners after your booking is confirmed.

The village pub offers good affordable meals, with plenty of alternative pubs and restaurants not far away and the local amenities include two village shops, post office, doctor's surgery and chemist. 

The architect designed property was built by the owner in 2002, originally as a large family home. The Bed & Breakfast started in 2005 by hosting students learning English at Oxford language schools. With the addition of a purpose-built breakfast room and ensuite bathrooms, the property now provides accommodation for those who choose to stay in a bed and breakfast environment combining privacy with a homely atmosphere.

Friendly welcoming owners who went out of their way to assist us. Printed off list of car hire places and addresses to assist us with returning our hire car even offered to drive us to the railway station after we dropped of the hire car. Good quite location with a pub in walking distance for dinner. We discussed with the owners and suggested they improve sinage as it was a little bit difficult to find the house.
Ms Louise B

wonderful B&B-place for resting in buzy Oxford, very friendly and helpful landlord-couple. We would always come back.
Mr Martin D

The owners were very friendly and helpful, making us feel very welcome. The room was bright and pleasant, very comfortable with a lovely ensuite bathroom and shower. Great selection on the continental breakfast. We would definately go back there again.

A very friendly place

Excellent hosts. Both Bryan and his wife couldn't have been any more helpful or pleasant. Went over and above making us comfortable and feeling right at home in their home. The facility was immaculate.
