Miss Kirkpatrick, May 2019
I very much enjoyed the atmosphere of this house and its lovely garden.. It was a very lucky find so close to central Oxford and to the Thames (Isis) allowing pleasant walks to both Oxford and Iffley.
It proved to be an excellent location for a small 70th birthday party with my family. The piano was a great hit with our youngest visitor.
Christine, one of the owners, was very welcoming and friendly and put us at our ease and was also very helpful when we left.
Oxford, whilst very lively was not as crowded as over the summer.
The modern facilities all worked and my husband, who was confined to the house, said that he loved the house and felt that it was well worth the effort of going.
The proximity of shops and regularity of buses were considerable advantages and enabled me to make the best use of the limited time available to enjoy the cultural events on offer.
I would recommend the Bate Museum of Musical instruments and the free recitals in churches and colleges. Details of these are posted around the Bodleian area, another place for excellent free exhibitions.
Wandering around the central lanes often rewards with unexpected views of architectural gems, Queen's Lane and Merton Lane are among my favourites. Also, Oxford is an outstanding place for
