Greyfriars Hideaway, Oxford, Oxfordshire

4 - 12 6 Bedrooms 8 Dining

Beautiful holiday houses in central Oxford sleeping 12 for a city break or celebration weekend with family and friends

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Greyfriars Hideaway, Oxford, Oxfordshire, sleeps 4 - 12 in 6 bedrooms.

Set within a truly unparalleled private and secure location, cosseted behind high walls in the vibrant centre of Oxford, just metres from Westgate Oxford and Oxford Castle, Greyfriars Hideaway offers two painstakingly restored 17th Century properties– The Masters Lodgings & Cloisters.

Stepping into Greyfriars Hideaway is like stepping into a secret space, hidden from the city. A mysterious heavy door leads from street to the peaceful, private courtyard garden– a veritable Eden of greenery with trees, plants and a fountain, tucked between the two imposing properties which sit opposite each other, each with their own space and outside seating area.

The Masters Lodgings sleeps up to 4 people over two exquisite ‘whole-floor’ suites and brims with style, character and antiquity. Each bedroom suite takes over an entire floor and is furnished with its own study-come-dressing room, soft seating area and natural stone and porcelain bathroom, plus hand-made super-king beds complete with made-to-order mattresses. A Listed 17th Century wood-panelled staircase links the bedrooms with the ground floor where there is a hand-made tulipwood kitchen equipped to please any chef, a cosy period wood-panelled sitting room furnished with Harris Tweed sofa and chairs and a more formal dining area, a Butler’s Pantry and French doors leading from the Drawing Room into the courtyard garden with seating beneath the arbour.

Cloisters sleeps up to 8 people in four fabulous suites, one boasting a breath-taking Grade II listed ornate plaster ceiling dating back to the early 17th Century. Each suite is complemented with a dedicated dressing area, soft seating, hand-made super-king bed and Vi-Spring Elite mattresses, porcelain and natural stone bathrooms with freestanding baths and monsoon or raindrop showers. Downstairs there’s a large open-plan reception room with French doors to the garden, a cloakroom, Butler’s Pantry and a stylish kitchen with central island, double ovens, bean-to-cup coffee machine, wine fridge, three sinks with Quooker boiling taps and a dedicated breakfast zone.
