We had a wonderful stay in this authentic B&B which is just a short walk into town. Staying on the top floor we had to carry our suitcases up the small, steep winding staircase. Our room faced the street and was next to the bathroom which was for our private use. The B&B has a lot of character with old pictures on the walls and history books in the bookcase. The owner, Stuart, was a superb host contacting us before arrival and making sure everything was OK. Breakfast was delicious, eggs and pancakes with fresh berries. We signed up for Stuart's Oxford Walking Tour who took us to some of the magnificent old colleges. Great visit!
