Oxford Country Cottages is a series of luxury 4* Gold self-catering cottages on Lower Farm at the end of the Cotswold village of Noke, a secluded country retreat with the 1000 acre RSPB Otmoor reserve as our neighbour and all just five miles from Oxford centre and Bicester centre. One, two and three bedroom cottages sleeping up to 24 in total and available for holidays and business short lets throughout the year.
Oxford Country Cottages are four single story cottages all located within 50 yards of each other in a stunning and tranquil courtyard garden, featuring our Jacuzzi Hot Tub, a Wendy House full of toys for the Children with no passing traffic and a small but well stocked farm shop. Beautifully converted from farm buildings, the cottages combine farmhouse character and comfort with discreet modern essentials. We have a 4* Gold award from Visit England and a Green Tourism ‘Gold’ award for our consideration to the environment with all of our cottages being heated by our Biomass Boiler, electricity provided by our 50KW Solar Panel System and have access to 1 Gigabit pure fibre optic broadband, the fastest Internet access in the world!
We are ideal for a romantic break for 2, a family get together, a wedding or an inspired alternative to a hotel whilst away on business.
Leave all your troubles behind you and relax in this tranquil countryside hideaway. Positioned on the edge of 1000 acres of the beautiful RSPB reserve of Otmoor with, at its heart, the farmhouse and a quadrangle of cottages providing tranquility and seclusion where you can unwind and relax. This is the perfect base to explore with historic Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Bicester Village, the Cotswolds and Shakespeare’s Stratford all within easy reach, yet still within an hour of London or Birmingham.
Here at Lower Farm we are avid Animal lovers and have grown our Menagerie over the years to now boast Chickens, Ducks, Kune Kune Pigs, and Miniature Donkeys, alongside our resident pets! We would be delighted to introduce the Animal team to anyone who is interested and Children seem to be particularly enthralled by this experience!
Daily Feeding of the animals takes place at 9.30 every morning, where young or old can feed and collect eggs from the Chickens and Ducks, meet the Pigs and Donkeys and maybe even have a sit on one of the Miniature Donkeys depending on the size of the jockey! Just come to the Farmhouse Gate at 9.30 daily and ring the doorbell if interested….We look forward to seeing you there!!
