Sparkling clean6 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

My place is good for solo visitors and academics. It has an urban/ rural feel. One side, opens onto the city ( a 10 minute walk) and on the other, the Castle Mill Stream and the River Thames. It is ideal for anyone walking the Thames Path.
The railway and bus stations are a 10 minute walk. Nearby is the ice rink, College of FE and Oxford University. Also nearby is a park with tennis and heated outdoor swimming in summer. The main shops, restaurants and theatres are 10 mins. Off-road parking.

Thanks for your comments. I prefer the waste paper basket, as I think it is more in style with the room. There's a small waste bin in the bathroom.
