ALPEN TRAVEL TIPS: Victorian Charm in the Heart of Oxford

I have just acquired  beautifully renovated Victorian home near to the heart of my old home town of Oxford, England. I will be sharing my home as a unique holiday rental on AirBnB and hope my Alpen travel enthusiasts will take advantage of staying there whilst travelling abroad.

Built in 1892, the period property lies in the Divinity Road, which is a mere 15 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride to Magdalen Bridge, punting and the entrance to the historical Oxford City Centre with its famous colleges, churches, bookshops, shopping and restaurants. It is minutes away from the colorful Cowley Road with its myriad of ethnic restaurants, organic cafe's and eclectic shops.

The dreaming spires of Oxford from South Park

For the nature lover, it is a short walk up to two great parks - perfect for strolling, jogging or taking a lovely picnic whilst overlooking the dreaming spires of Oxford.

Divinity Road features three double bedrooms with an additional pull-out sofa. There are 1.5 bathrooms, including a feature roll-top tub and sink in the master bedroom. There is also a quiet back garden with a deck - ideal for an afternoon Cream Tea  or an evening BBQ.

Perfect for the solo traveler or couple wanting space to a family or group of friends needing multiple bedrooms. Divinity Road is available from 2 night minimum rentals. For its size and what it offers, it is one of the best priced options for a comfortable stay in Oxford.
