About

Abbey Guest House is a quiet, 'Home from Home', non-smoking, multi-award winning, B&B, on the route to Oxford from the historic town of Abingdon-on-Thames. The installation of a lift in 2014 ensures that the whole house is accessible to everyone. In 2018 a ceiling hoist was installed in the bedroom of the accessible twin room on the ground floor.

A choice of 7 en-suite bedrooms includes ground floor 'Easy Access' (twin room with ceiling hoist and en-suite wet room) and first floor ‘Family Accessible’ (family room with a double bed, bunk beds, separate single bed and a bed-settee with an e-suite wet room) and 'Allergy Friendly' (double room with en-suite shower) Rooms. Guests enjoy private parking (with Blue Badge bay), excellent bus services and local amenities, secure cycle/scooter storage and external charging point, Fair Trade items and free Wi-Fi. We also cater for guests with either visual or hearing impairments.

Flat Screen TV/DVD player
Radio alarm
Hairdryer
Hospitality trays
Iron and ironing board in every room
Personal security safe in every room
Towelling robes in every room

Map & Directions

Road Directions

Situated approximately 6 miles South of Oxford city centre. BY ROAD Travel along the A34 heading south from Oxford, take the Abingdon North exit left off the A34, at the top of the slip-road at the T-junction turn left onto the A4183. After around three quarters of a mile, at the roundabout take the 2nd exit onto the Oxford Road - A4183 (signposted Town Centre) After around a quarter of a mile (just after a set of pelican traffic lights), there is an active speed camera on this stretch of road. Travel approximately another 150 yards past the speed camera and then turn right as if you were going into Wheatcroft Close. (This turning is immediately in front of a bus stop for buses coming towards you and heading for Oxford). Then turn immediately left into Oxford Road – now you will be behind the bus stop on a service road that runs parallel to the main road. No 136 is the first house now on your right with a block-paved driveway and spaces marked out for all guests to park. At night, there are low level lights on the side of the pillars marking the entrance to the drive. Any problems, please call Terry on 01235 537020 or 07976 627252. . BY RAIL & BUS Oxford railway station is served by trains to and from London, Birmingham, etc. If you arrive in Oxford by train, then pick up the X3 bus from the station forecourt. The bus stop is the first on the left as you come down the stairs at the front of Oxford station and the journey time is 15-20 minutes.. (There are other buses - the X2, X4 and X13 - that you can pick up if you go into the town but this is the only bus that goes direct from the station.) The bus will pass through part of Oxford before heading out of town. When the bus takes the slip road off the A34 (the fast dual carriageway road), it will travel up hill and turn left at the top of the road. The bus will then proceed to a roundabout where it will go straight across (second exit). Just after the roundabout, there is a bus stop (buses usually stop there but may not if it is late or if no one wants to get on or off - so do keep an eye out). Once past that stop, ring the bell so that the bus stops at the next stop (the 'South Avenue' stop) for you to get off (all stops are 'request' stops here and buses will not stop unless there is a demand). Once off the bus, cross over the road and walk in the same direction the bus was travelling. In front of you, you will see the bus stop (again labelled 'South Avenue') for travelling back to Oxford. This stop is right in front of the house (Number 136) - albeit that there is a little slip road and a grass verge inbetween! Should you miss the stop, the next bus stop is labelled 'Boundary House' (it is the name of the pub that is at the crossroads in front of the stop) and you would just need to cross over the road again but now have to walk back a little way. Any problems, please call Terry on 01235 537020 or 07976 627252. BY AIRPORTS / COACH From Heathrow there is a fast rail link to London Paddington which connects directly with services to Oxford. There is a regular coach service (X70) from both London airports to Oxford City Centre. From London there are two coach services that run 24hrs, The Oxford Tube and X90, both of which depart from Victoria at Grosvenor Gardens and call at Park Lane (West side near Marble Arch). The X90 also calls near Baker Street at the top of Gloucester Place and the Tube on Notting Hill Gate. Airport and London coaches terminate at Gloucester Green bus station in Oxford. Accommodation approximately 6.2 miles from the bus station. If travelling by bus from either London, Heathrow or Gatwick, you may find it easier to get off the Oxford Tube or Airport Bus one stop before the Gloucester Green terminal - check with the bus driver! According to the bus information, the bus does stop in High Street, you should find a stop (J4) to catch the X2, X3, X4 or the X13 bus not far from wherever you get off (see directions on the bus stop display).] Then follow the bus instructions as above (rail & bus).
