Green Cottage is a self-contained cottage at the end of a quiet lane which ends in fields. It has been converted from a small barn in the large walled garden of the owners' house, itself a pretty eighteenth-century Cotswold stone building. The cottage is private and cannot be seen from the main house.
Green Cottage provides self-catering accommodation all on one floor, and sleeps up to four people. It is comfortable and well equipped, and our guests often comment on its restful and home-like atmosphere. We would like to add that, while we have always taken great care over cleanliness, we have now, in these anxious times, upgraded our cleaning regime so as to include disinfection as far as is practicable.
You can find an interactive floor plan and more photographs on our website at www.oxtowns.co.uk/greencottage. As you can see from the floor plan and photographs, a spacious conservatory opens into a large, light living room. Next to this is a fully fitted kitchen with dining area. Then there is a hall, which leads to a bathroom and two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a double bed (150x200cm), and the second has two single beds (each 90x190cm). The bathroom has a bath with wall-mounted shower.
Facilities include linen, towels and duvets, cooker and microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier, baby's cot and high chair, central heating, a wood-burning stove (an initial quantity of logs supplied), flat screen digital television and DVD player, radio/CD player, The cottage has wireless high-speed broadband internet connection. There is parking next to cottage, and a secluded garden area with table and chairs.
No pets and no smoking
Northmoor is a small, friendly village set among fields, with a 13th century church. There are walks that lead directly out of the village and that connect with the Thames Path - no need to get into your car. The village is also on the Oxfordshire cycle path. Pleasure boats can be hired locally.
Three minutes' walk away from the cottage, there is an award-winning pub which serves excellent food, with home-grown fresh vegetables and locally supplied meat. The nearest shop and Post Office are two miles away, and there are a variety of pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area.
