About the property


The cottages are converted from a 19th century open fronted cart-shed within the environs of our Grade 11* listed 16th Century farmhouse with its traditional granary and dovecot. The accommodation comprises of two bedrooms - one double and one twin - with a bathroom on the first floor. Off the hallway downstairs is a shower room, and a half glazed door leads into a sitting room with wood burning stove, following through to a dining area and fully fitted kitchen. Patio doors lead out of the sitting room onto a paved area with garden furniture and BBQ which is part of an enclosed south facing garden overlooking open farmland. During the summer months our pedigree herd of Devon cattle can often be seen grazing the pastures around the cottages. There is also an abundance of wild and bird life including deer, badgers, finches, tits, woodpeckers, owls etc. On the farm we work closely with the RSPB and are in the a higher level environmental stuardship scheme. The cottages are very well equipped for those who like to cook while away. There is central heating throughout and they are very well insulated making them an ideal destination all year round. Enjoy a selection of games/puzzles and a bookcase full of books, comfy chairs with a wood burning stove to curl up in front of. For the more energetic there are plenty of walks from the front door and Northmoor is on the Oxfordshire Cycle Way. The village boasts a community pub within 2 minutes walk which opened Easter 2014 and serves delicious locally sourced food. Village shops are in two adjacent villages - 2 miles away. Witney is 7 miles away and has several major supermarkets, high street shops as well as independent traders and Free Parking! Blenheim Palace, Kelmscott Manor, Oxford, the Cotswolds, Bampton - the 'Downton Abbey Village' are all within easy reach. The owner lives on site and is always on hand to offer advice and to recommend places to explore.

About Mary Anne Florey

I have been welcoming guests to Rectory Farm in our self catering cottages since July 1996. Our family has farmed here since 1915 and we are passionate about our little corner of Oxfordshire! We live in the farmhouse, a short distance away from the cottages and are on hand to answer any questions you may have or to help you plan that special day out or advise on the best places to eat.

Our son James joined us on the farm in January 2013 and both he and Robert take great pride in our herd of pedigree Devon Cattle - 'The Red Rubies'. During calving time a visit to our new farmyard, half a mile away is a treat. During your stay beef, eggs from our hens, preserves and honey can usually be purchased from us.

We look forward to welcoming you to this quiet peaceful area of rural England.

Why Mary Anne Florey chose Northmoor

Both cottages provide a home from home experience. They are very well equipped so cooking away from home is a pleasure. There is a bookcase full of books so you can curl up in front of the woodburner and lose yourself in a book for a few hours. Rectory Farm is one of the few places where you cannot here the noise of a road - bliss! Enough of reading, walking, site seeing and no desire to cook then you are a short stroll from our community owned village pub which keeps a good range of local beers and serves delicious food. We do recommend booking for evening meals and we are very happy to do this for you.

What makes this cottage unique

When we converted the cottages from an open fronted cart shed we knew that we wanted to create cottages that provided a home away from home experience which were ideal for couples, families and people travelling on business - judging by the comments in our visitors book we have succeeded!!

A peaceful, pretty and comfortable cottage in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We were made very welcome to this gem of a cottage by the helpful, but never invasive,owners. It was clean, comfortable, very well and thoughtfully equipped. A real find. We will return without doubt.

A cottage for 4 seasons

  • 4 of 5

A well furnished property with plenty of crockery etc in the kitchen. The rear garden is a sunny spot and was warm enough to sit outside early morning even though we had snow the next day. The wood burner ensured we were very cosy.

A wander around the church (books for sale inside) and the Saturday farmers market (more books) over the road made for a relaxing day. The cakes on sale were lovely and the large jar of Norman's homemade pickled shallots are now a distant memory.

Being tall we found the double bedroom needed some careful negotiation due to sloping ceilings upstairs.

As the days lengthen I imagine the tree-lined lanes will be alive with birds and will look glorious as leaves unfold and blossom appears. Just an excuse for another visit!

Warm and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped cottage accommodation with excellent kitchen and comfortable bedrooms. Two niggles: CD player needs replacing and pillows for beds are too soft.

An ideal holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We rented both Rectory Farm Cottages for our family over the week of our daughter's wedding. The cottages were very well equipped and provided a peaceful place where we could relax and enjoy meals and time together amidst all the busyness of wedding preparations. We enjoyed walks in the surrounding countryside, and shopped in Witney, and visited Oxford.

The owners were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive.
