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.
Northmoor is near several attractive towns with shops and places of interest, such as:
Oxford (30 minutes depending on traffic) - excellent shops, ancient university and churches, museums and galleries
Witney (15 minutes) - old wool town, pretty church green, nearest main shops, Cogges Farm museum
Abingdon (20 minutes) - bridges over the Thames, ancient centre, useful shopping
Wantage (30 minutes) - capital of King Alfred's Wessex, excellent local museum and cafe, near the White Horse Downs and Ridgeway
Also of interest are:
Blenheim Palace and Park at Woodstock (25 minutes), where there is also an excellent local museum with cafe, and many antique shops
Burford (20 minutes) with historic church and many small shops - antiques, clothes, books
The Cotswolds area and its many picturesque towns and villages
Kelmscott Manor and garden (30 minutes), where William Morris lived, preserved as a museum about his life and work
Stratford-upon-Avon (and the Royal Shakespeare Company's theatre) and Warwick Castle (1 hour)
Many National Trust properties: e.g. Buscot Park, Chastleton House, Great Coxwell Barn.
The Cotswold Wildlife Park (30 minutes)
Northmoor itself is not served by public transport, though there are buses that serve nearby villages. A car is therefore essential. There are main railway stations at Oxford and Didcot, and there are excellent coach services between Oxford and London.

Tout est fait dans les plus petits détails pour que le voyageur, et sa famille, se sentent accueillis chaleureusement. Cette attention se confirme au fil du séjour: où trouvez-vous un hôte qui vous apporte une assiette de champignons fraichement cueillis ? La situation du cottage est aussi idéale pour faire des visites aux alentours, à pieds, à vélo ou en voiture ; il y a plein d'attractions dans les environs pour tous les goûts. Que des éloges !!

Julie and her husband made us feel very welcome in their beautiful cottage. It was a great way for us to get out and go somewhere beautiful, quiet and relaxing. Also a great place if you want to visit Oxford (which I had never done before and loved a lot). My girlfriend and I both love cooking, and we were very happy with the kitchen that has all kitchen supplies one could need. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend staying here!
