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 within 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.

You can park your car next to the cottage.

Green Cottage provides self-catering accommodation all on one floor. It sleeps four. There is also a futon for a fifth person if required - we make a small extra charge for this. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped, and our visitors often comment on its restful and home-like atmosphere.

Northmoor and the Surrounding Area

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.

There is a pub in the village which serves good food, three minutes walk away from the cottage. The nearest shop and Post Office are two miles away, and there are a variety of pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area. There is a bus service to Oxford from Northmoor, but a car is strongly recommended.
