    Oxford: the world's most prestigious university city

    Oxford is, arguably, the world's most famous university city. It's a beautiful place, steeped in history and dotted with famous spires which provide an iconic skyline. The oldest college building dates back more than 800 years and when you wander the hallowed halls and courtyards you'll think you've just stepped onto the set of a Harry Potter movie. It's not all about academia though. Beyond the university, the city is modern and vibrant. Expect buzzy nightlife, some fine eateries and more attractions than you could possibly visit in one trip, when you stay in an Oxford vacation rental.

    Punt with a picnic in Oxford

    When you stay in an Oxford vacation rental, it would be criminal not to make a beeline directly for the center, for a little retail therapy. The shops that flank the main streets and cobbled alleys range from independents to some of the world's most luxurious brands. Afterwards, consider seeing the city from its pretty waterways. Pack up a picnic and hop aboard a punt to try your hand at this very Oxfordshire tradition. A boater hat might not be mandatory, but sure completes the look on a sunny English afternoon. Alternatively, hire a bicycle and explore the city on 2 wheels.

    High tea and great halls in Oxford

    There is no doubt that Oxford has an air of sophistication about it, and there's no better way to experience it than by taking high tea. Your waistline might not forgive you, but the piles of homemade scones laden with clotted cream and jam, washed down with plenty of milky tea, is a treat that won't be forgotten easily. Of course, when you stay at an Oxford vacation rental, you simply can't miss an afternoon wander through the historic university buildings, most notably Christ Church, the inspiration behind Hogwarts' Great Hall.

    Oxford is open year-round

    Oxford has year-round appeal. While the summer months are of course the busiest, with folks from all over the world descending to explore the historic city and take part in the annual festivities, don't discount the other seasons. The university is open throughout the year and while it's unlikely you'll be punting the waterways during the cold winter, there's plenty of cozy pubs, restaurants and museums to soak up the Oxford atmosphere. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall are particularly beautiful and with prices on rentals taking a nosedive, there's no excuse not to visit.

    The beautiful Oxfordshire countryside awaits

    Like most cities, you're not going to see much in the way of wildlife in Oxford itself, bar the odd pigeon or backyard critter. Wildlife lovers shouldn't be dismayed though. The surrounding Oxfordshire countryside of rolling green meadows and forests is truly beautiful and a haven for many creatures. In its heart is Otmoor, a reserve whose grazing marshes and floodplains are home to numerous wildfowl and wading birds. Be sure to bring your camera and your binoculars because you're not going to want to miss the sight of songbirds in the hedgerows.
