Norman and Lisa are very helpful and welcoming hosts at this wonderful establishment where we have stayed on a number of occasions. The rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable and the breakfast, usually cooked by Lisa, is excellent. Heather House is approximately 25 minutes walk from the centre of the fascinating city of Oxford and a regular bus services... More

Excellent location - convenient to restaurants and downtown Oxford. The owners Norman and Lisa were very kind and accommodating to our family. They offered gluten free bread for breakfast which was a very big deal to my son and I who are gluten sensitive. Thank you!

We stayed at the Heather House just for few days, and it was delightful. The hosts Norman and Lisa were very helpful and kind and their B&B was cosy and well connected to the centre of the city! If I come back to Oxford, I'll stay here again!

Time and again I have stayed at Heather House and I can't recommend this little B&B enough. It is very clean, warm and with free Wi-Fi. Norman and Lisa are so very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts are included and delicious and it's right near the Cowley Road for going out in the evening.

I stayed in a single room at the Heather house for approximately 2 weeks this past January. Oxford was atmospheric and quiet and I had an extraordinarily productive and lovely time. Largely thanks to the genuine welcome that Norman and Lisa imbue in their home. The small room was cosy and quiet, just the thing for an introspective work trip.... More

We have had another lovely stay at Heather House and I am looking forward to going back again. Lisa and Norman are so hospitable and helpful, going above and beyond to look after their guests and their needs. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Oxford!

This was the best bed and breakfast experience that I have had so far in the UK. The rooms were comfortable and tastefully appointed without the corner-cutting in quality that one often finds - I particularly appreciated the good reading lights. The shower and beds were great. Lisa and Norman were incredibly welcoming and accommodating, letting my son into his... More
