My wife and I, over age 60, stayed at 5 B&Bs during our 3 weeks to see London, Bath, The Cotswolds, Oxford, Lake District, and York by train and public transportation. Arriving by train and not familiar with the town, we took a taxi to Heather House. We received a warm welcome by Vivian who provided us with all the information, town map and advice needed to orient us and make necessary connections during our 2 night stay.
We enjoyed the easy access to the computer, the 15 min. walk to town and the frequent optional bus. Our ensuite double was plainly furnished, a bit small, but clean and tidy. Not much view. The breakfast was adequate and served by a staff member in the simple breakfast room. We spent so much time sightseeing we did not take advantage of the nice morning room. On departing, with Vivian’s guidance, we took the bus back to the train station. At 76BP per night, we found Heather House to provide economical accommodation for our sightseeing needs.
While in Oxford we enjoyed evensong at Christ Church Cathedral, the informative city walking tour of the college, the views from the spire of St. Mary’s Church, lunch at the Eagle & Child, seeing Blenheim Place, and attending Saturday vespers at the Orthodox Church of the Annunciation at 1 Canterbury Road.
