Rectory Farm
Ranked #1 of 1 Northmoor B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We booked a week here prior to leaving home for England. After we were there a few days we decided we wanted to stay longer, but alas, only one more night was available to us. We enjoyed the fresh, fragrant country air, lovely green lawns and fields, glorious spring flowers, and the QUIET! Mary Anne and Robert were very helpful in answering all our questions and giving us ideas about places to see nearby that we would not have known about otherwise. Robert allowed us to see some of his herd of beautiful "Ruby Reds" up close. The dark auburn cattle are well known in the UK. London is a couple of hours away if you drive to the Park & Ride lot and take the bus as we did. We stayed in one of the cottages on the farm rather than the B & B, and prepared our own meals. We had everything we needed including a clothes washer/dryer.

Absoluetly excellent! Mary-Anne and Robert are extremely welcoming, friendly (but not intrusive) and interesting hosts in a top notch B&B in a very quiet location. Really good rooms and breakfast, nice visitor lounge with a wood burning stove which was much appreciated in probably the coldest weekend of the 2012/13 winter (-1.5c both days). Having somewhere nice and warm to sit in comfort at the end of a bitterly cold day rather than have to stay out longer than we could stand before returning to a bedroom made a huge difference. Decent food in the village pub 200 yards away, and several places to eat within 10 minutes drive. We will definately return when its warmer and we can enjoy the setting more.

We stayed at Rectory Farm Northmoor for 4 nights in March 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had the warmest welcome , delicious breakfasts (different fruits and pastries every morning) and the luxury of a guest sitting room complete with glowing wood burner. Our hosts were friendly and interesting without being in the slightest bit intrusive. A number ofl books and information booklets were available for us to use on our daily visits into Oxford city centre; the local pub and restaurant guide was also most useful in helping make the difficult decision as to where to eat in the evenings. The Red Lion just around the corner from the Farm did a very basic and reasonable priced meal. Our stay in the 16th century Rectory was memorable and we would certainly make a return visit!

Room Tip: The smaller corridor room above the front door has a lovely rural view over the Farm's gardens a...

After a busy day in Oxford we were wanting a nice quiet English country retreat, Rectory Farm was the perfect answer for us, with a welcome pot of tea on our arrival in front of the reception room fire,
A very spacious and comfortable bedroom awaited us with all you would expect from a 5 stare B&B.
We are not normally into the grand English full cooked breakfast routine but on this occasion we just had to sample the range of home made and local area products that were presented.
A definite recommendation.

I stayed here for several nights with my family and enjoyed it very much. The cabin we stayed in was well outfitted and we enjoyed the wood-burning stove. The little town is lovely. It's an easy 15 minute drive to the Oxford park & ride. Perhaps the best thing was the little pub just a 3 minute walk from the B&B -- the Red Lion Northmoor. We had several delicious and delightful meals there. Great, convenient location for seeing Oxford, Blenheim, the Cottswolds and getting a taste of English country life.

Recently stayed for two nights at Rectory Farm. Rooms spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and great bathrooms. Warm friendly welcome with wonderful shortbread and tea on our arrival. The building and gardens are interesting and charming. Breakfasts were just excellent with muffin and choc au pain 'treats'. Thoroughly recommended for a great holiday.
