This B&B is a historic farm house beside the church in a lovely country village near Oxford. It's a really distinctive place to stay and the hospitality is excellent. The owner is very friendly and helpful with local information. The breakfast choice is good and tasty - with both cooked and fresh options. The location is great for exploring the Cotswolds - but you definitely need a car to be able to experience the area fully. The benefit of staying in the country rather than Oxford itself (other than the choice of country pubs in the area!) is waking up to bird song rather than traffic noise.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We offer one twin and one double room with en-suite shower rooms for Bed and Breakfast accommodation in our 16th-century farmhouse which has been a family home for 3 generations. Rectory Farm is situated in the centre of the village of Northmoor in a quiet location behind the church - this is one of the few places where you hear no noise from a major road! A warm welcome awaits you along with a cup of tea and homemade shortbread. We love spending time with our guests and helping you to make the most of your stay with our wealth of local knowledge. For breakfast we offer fruit, yogurt, pastries (- homemade muffins are our specialty) along with a cooked option which is freshly cooked to your specifications on the Aga using where possible locally sourced ingredients including eggs from our own hens. We also offer our guests their own sitting room with woodburning stove. For those of you who need to stay in touch with the outside world WIFI is available free of charge. If peace, quiet and comfort in an informal atmosphere are what you are looking for then we are the place for you!! ... more less
