Thackley End B

This is an extremely well-located, comfortable one-bedroom apartment providing excellent accommodation for one person or a couple. The flat consists of a large living room with an open plan dining area, a bedroom with two single beds, kitchen and bathroom. This serviced self-catering apartment in North Oxford is located in Oxford's most desirable residential area, near Summertown and 1.75km from Oxford city centre, with frequent buses passing directly in front of the flat along the main Banbury Road.

  • The spacious living area is attractively furnished with a leather sofa and armchair, pine dining table and four chairs. It is south-facing, with a door opening directly onto the peaceful communal gardens and a small patio with table and chairs.
  • The bedroom is south-facing too, with twin beds and a large wardrobe. It also has a door opening onto the patio and garden.
  • The kitchen is equipped with cooking facilities, combined washing-machine and dryer, and fridge with icebox, and the bathroom combines bath and overhead shower.
  • Quiet and peaceful, set in private grounds with no through traffic; guests enjoy the garden, with its squirrels and many types of birds.
  • Wi-fi broadband connection included and telephone available to receive incoming calls only.
  • Off road parking for guests and any visitors.

Access to the city centre
The bus journey to the city centre takes 5 minutes and the service is frequent. Alternatively the walk to the city centre takes 20 minutes and is very pleasant: straight down the Banbury Road/St Giles, taking you past North Oxford's distinctive Victorian Gothic architecture and university buildings.

Local area and amenities
The flat is a 10-minute walk from the exclusive Summertown shopping area, which has all the shops you will need (including quality supermarkets and chemists), as well as excellent restaurants and bars, and a leisure centre with indoor swimming pool and sports facilities. Also 10 minutes away are the beautiful University Parks (open to everyone) where you can walk, picnic, punt on the river and watch cricket in the summer. This short let apartment in North Oxford compares very favourably with hotel rates for the area and is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a holiday cottage in Oxford.
