Short and long term self catering accommodation for people visiting Oxford for study or work.

The view from the kitchen window

The Old Dairy is a large family home dating back to the 1870’s. Now an artist’s house and occasional gallery, the upper floor provides a separate annex offering three double guest bedrooms, a newly fitted guest kitchen with eating area, and a bathroom with bath & shower.

Our house is a clean, comfortable, quiet and safe environment for visitors who are looking for self catering accommodation within a friendly and relaxed family house.
