    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    This early Victorian artisan's cottage has been tastefully restored to provide comfortable modern accommodation to a very high standard. The property benefits from being uniquely situated close to all the city centre and university amenities yet is within the vibrant village community of Upper Wolvercote with its ancient church, village hall and school, and is in close proximity to canal, river and open countryside.
