If you are coming to Oxford for a holiday or work then we recommend the following:

Weekly Home Favourite: Pieminister

The weather is getting colder in the UK and at Weekly Home we are looking for ways to stay warm. One of our favourite ways of keeping warm is enjoying a good filling hot meal. The traditional British pie is a good option for this and we know just the place to go in Oxford to get a great pie, Pieminister in the Covered Market.

Weekly Home Favourite: Eagle and Child

One of the reasons why Oxford is so famous and such a magical place to visit is that it holds great historical significance. After only a short time in the city centre you will feel that this is a city steeped in history. The “dreaming spires” allow you to drift back in time to days gone by. A time when many famous authors were studying and sharing ideas in Oxford including the likes of J.R. R Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.

Weekly Home Favourite: The Natural Bread Company

We have a beautiful new Cotswold holiday cottage available in the picturesque town of Woodstock. The front of our Brown’s Lane holiday cottage looks like a scene from a picture postcard and the inside oozes charm, character and style.

Weekly Home Favourite: University of Oxford Botanic Gardens

If you are staying in one of our short let apartments or holiday cottages and looking for something to do in Oxford, one of our favourites is the University of Oxfords Botanic Gardens. The gardens are very close to a lot of our central Oxford properties and the perfect place to spend an afternoon.

Oxford University Museum of Natural History

If you are in Oxford staying in one of our short let apartments or holiday cottages our recommendation for the weekend is the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Rain has been predicted for this weekend, so we are recommending an indoor activity.

The Diamond Jubilee in Oxford

Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne for 60 years and this weekend the UK is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee and enjoying a long weekend*. This is the second Diamond Jubilee the UK has seen.

If you are staying in a Weekly Home short let property in Oxford these are just a few of the events that are happening in the area. 

Picnic by the river in Oxford

If you're staying in one of our central Oxford short lets, we recommend a picnic on the canal bank in Christ Church meadow. Christ Church, one of the largest of Oxford’s colleges, is considered by many to be the most beautiful. At one end of the meadow, at St Aldates, can be found Alice’s Shop, notable for its inclusion in Carrols Wonderland Adventures.

Weekly Home Favourite: Magdalen Road

If you are staying in one of our Oxford short let apartments or holiday rentals one of our favourite things to do is to spend the day in East Oxford.
