Description:This house is unique in being within such easy access of the Oxford City centre. It is literally 5 minutes walk from the Ashmolean Museum, and all the other attractions that Oxford has to offer. It is on the Oxford Canal in a buzzy part of Oxford near restaurants and clubs, yet only a short walk up the canal towpath to Port Meadow. It is genuinely city centre, and it is very rare to find a self-catering property this central available for short lets of less than a week. nIdeally my minimum let is 2 nights and that incurs a surcharge. 3 or more are the normal rate, weekends are a premium. n n nI have 2 further properties in the heart of Jericho which are available for short lets so it is worth enquiring if this house is booked. The one sleeps 4/5, the other 5/7 using an extra futon mattress. n nUpper Fisher Row offers accommodation for 6 or more. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 double, a twin and a single, and also a sofabed for overflows but the house is not large! It has a lovely west facing garden, and is an easy walk from both the bus and the train stations, so no car necessary. The house is located just off Hythe Bridge Street. n nIf you are a keen runner, you are just on the Towpath, so can run north and be on Port Meadow in less than 10 minutes. n nThe house has a bathroom with shower over, and a separate shower room on the ground floor, washer and dryer and is wifi. n nOxford has a Literary Festival in March, Alumni Weekend in September and all year there are things going on at the museums and theatres. Access by bus and train is simple to the Cotswolds, Woodstock with Blenheim Palace and Stratford, and if you book train tickets in advance from Firstgreatwestern, they are much cheaper so you can be in London within an hour. Oxford has its own information website called dailyinfo.co.uk which is a great place to find out what is happening. n nThe house has been very popular for family reunions, weddings, academics attending conferences, and holidays. There are nice playgrounds and parks in Oxford and fun places to eat and shop. The Covered Market is unique and sells fresh fruit, meat, fish and so on all under cover. I have 2 further properties in the heart of Jericho and sometimes these houses might be available for dates where this one is booked. n nThe Anchor Inn on Hayfield road, and the Oxford Retreat are 2 favourite eateries as well as Edamame on Holywell Street for a unique Japanese restaurant and the acclaimed Rickety Press in Jericho, or Sojo round the corner, on Hythe Bridge Street. Al Shami is a very popular Lebanese restaurant in Jericho, about 5 mins walk, on Nelson Street. n n nPlease email me for more information/advice, as I love welcoming people to Oxford. nUpper Fisher Row is strictly non smoking and there is NO PARKING available with this rental. You can arrive by train/bus and walk everywhere. n nRickshaw tours are a cool way to see the city but you need to book in advance, or use them for a wedding or other event. A great way to get to the punting station on the Cherwell. n nIncluded: Linen and towels n WiFi n all Bills n Great Location n
