Holiday Rental House
Midsomer Cottage is a delightful refurbished and extended three bedroom Victorian cottage with open outlooks, situated in a charming village within the Oxford ring road, and with easy access to the city. The accommodation is 4 star, stylish, and provides comfortable space for five or six people. The main staircase is steep, with narrow treads, and there is a paddle staircase to the twin bedroom on the second floor, making it unsuitable for children under about seven, or the elderly. However a cot and stair gates are provided, and many families have enjoyed a happy and comfortable stay in the cottage. The village of Iffley is ideal for a comfortable and relaxing stay in Oxford as it is on an excellent bus route into the city, is close to the river, and offers a lovely old Norman church ...Midsomer Cottage is a delightful refurbished and extended three bedroom Victorian cottage with open outlooks, situated in a charming village within the Oxford ring road, and with easy access to the city.

The village of Iffley is ideal for a comfortable and relaxing stay in Oxford as it is on an excellent bus route into the city, is close to the river, and offers a lovely old Norman church with a Piper window. There is a community village shop run by villagers, two hotels and two pubs serving good food. A choice of supermarkets are within easy reach. The city is a pleasant 30 minute walk along the river tow path, with your first stop perhaps Christchurch College and meadows. Most of the colleges are open to the public, or you can pay a visit the Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers museums,The Sheldonian Library, or Blackwells book shop. Another option would be to take a guided walking tour, or ride on an open top bus, to familiarise yourselves with the dreaming spires of Oxford. Restaurants in the city include Gees, The Old Parsonage, Quads, The Vaults, and The Trout, to name only a few of many.The Playhouse Theatre and Pheonix Cinema in Jerico offer easily accessible entertainment.

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.

Midsomer cottage is a wonderful house with useful onstreet parking in a lovely part of Oxford. We enjoyed the walk by the lock and towpath into Oxford. The attic bedroom is certainly not for the less agile and during the particularly hot weather it was...More

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.
