Full description

Studio Iris is wonderfully secluded being the only studio occupied on the top floor of Folly Bridge House and having a private bathroom. Right up in the battlements, you might imagine yourself in that mythical Oxford 'ivory tower'. You can see to the clouds that hover over the Chilterns Hills far away to the south. You can see east over Folly Bridge to the stretch of the River Thames that winds past Christchurch Meadows and has been known as The Isis since Roman times. In the early mornings, you catch a glimpse of the university rowing teams as they turn to go downstream. Hard as it might be to believe, the reflected light from the river still dances on the ceiling here, four storeys up from the water.

The abstract acrylic Rise by Paul du Toit is a fitting adornment to this room. Self-portrait, linocut by Max Wolpe and Blue Jug by Rachel Nicholson have a more intimate feel.


The bathroom is just outside the studio door giving extra space inside. Brand new, bright and with a strong shower.

The studio is furnished with a double bed, two bedside tables with drawers, a round dining table with chairs and a comfortable armchair. The wardrobe has a mirror glass door, a hanging rail, and three drawers. It is W50xD60xH236.

Iris kitchen is equipped with stainless steel worktop, double induction hob, full-sized undercounter fridge, combination convection oven/microwave/grill and the elegant necessities of city living for two.

There is superfast fibre optic broadband, a flatscreen TV/DVD and hairdryer. The latest in ventilation systems removes cooking smells, steam and Oxford's notorious damp climate from the apartment replacing them with fresh, warmed air from above the trees at a rate of 180 cubic metres per hour.

Clothes washing and drying/ironing facilities are provided on the lower ground floor. Parking, secured by CCTV camera, in front of the house, is available at extra charge.

Oxford's most fashionable riverside restaurant, stands across the courtyard. The Folly offers a discount to our guests for dinner room service is available if the restaurant is not too busy.
