    Condo/Apartment – 
    Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Folly Bridge House is an Oxford landmark. A crenellated Georgian tower standing in the River Thames at the point of the original 900 AD oxen ford, it conjures all the romance of the city.

    This is the spot where Alice in Wonderland was invented by Lewis Carroll. On Folly Bridge, the 13th century philosopher and alchemist Roger Bacon had a tower. From the roof, the River Thames and the dreaming spires of the city spread out before you.

    Folly Bridge House has been beautifully restored by a potter and a photographer. This studio apartment is one of eight available, which can be rented in combination to house up to 16 people. Only five minutes walk from the top of the High Street, the colleges and shops, the studio lets you be in the bright lights in a moment and yet return to the tranquillit...

Folly Bridge House is, quite simply, an excellent place to stay in Oxford. It is in a great location, with a Tesco metro a block and a half away, and the town centre a 10 minute walk. Many buses, including buses to London, are a 5 minute walk away. And it is only a 20 minute walk to the train... more

This is a very special place to stay, and you can see that the owners have put a great deal of thought and effort into preparing each studio flat (I looked at several of them). The location is fantastic in terms of convenience and surroundings.... more
