“Feel happy in Oxford”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

This is a magical place only minutes from the City Centre. It is such a contrast to the beautiful but congested City and you can feel the benefit as you gulp in the fresh air. There are other pockets of green space in Oxford and many parks but Port Meadow is a wilder environment.

“Wild horses and open space”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

The large open space, with wild horses galloping past in the early evening as you walk down the house-boats on the river is a magical moment in time.

“Lovely place to walk along the river”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Fantastic walks in beautiful open countryside so close to centre of Oxford. Wild ponies and horses as well as cows graze nearby. A must if you are visiting Oxford for a weekend and the weather is nice.

“Special place, spoilt by new buildings!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Lovely space for walks with dog. Shame someone has been allowed to build blocks of flats overlooking this historic part of Oxford. How did that happen?

“Our sanctuary!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

If you have time then visit Port Meadow whilst visiting Oxford. Its such a peaceful sanctuary yet bang in the middle of suburbia! Dogs are welcome but you do need to be careful of the cattle and horses found on the meadow.
