Cotswold House


Cotswold House is situated in the leafy suburb of North Oxford, almost 2 miles from the city centre. The area is home for many who are involved in the academic and business life of the University.

The Cotswold stone house has been built and furnished to a standard rarely found today. All rooms have en suite facilities, colour TV, fridge, hairdryer, tea, coffee and biscuits. The house is not licensed. Our attention to detail and guest comfort have been rewarded by top ratings in the leading hotel/guest house guides. We are a non-smoking establishment.

While at Cotswold House, you can enjoy our special breakfasts: either our famous traditional breakfast or a wholesome vegetarian breakfast with fresh fruit and home-made museli.

The North Oxford/Summertown area has many fine restaurants and public houses offering an excellent variety of food over a wide price range.

Buses going into the city centre pass Cotswold House every 10 minutes. Blenheim Palace is only a 15 minute drive away. Coaches for London Victoria leave the centre of Oxford every 20 minutes.

It takes 45 minutes by car to get to Heathrow and 90 minutes by car to get to Gatwick. There is a coach from Heathrow every 30 minutes and from Gatwick every 2 hours. Trains to London Paddington leave every hour.
