The
Experience

Come for the happy relaxed vibe, and Mary Anne’s welcome with tea and homemade shortbread. There’s a wood-burner in the guest sitting room, and bedrooms have beautiful arched mullion windows. The huge twin with ornate plasterwork overlooks the garden and church, the pretty double is cosier and both have good showers and big fluffy towels. Wake for an excellent Aga breakfast with eggs from the hens, garden and hedgerow compotes, home or locally produced bacon and homemade jams. A herd of Red Ruby Devon cattle are Robert’s pride and joy; the family have farmed for generations and you can buy the beef. It’s a treat to stay.

Simply PERFECT - from the warm greeting upon arrival to the charming room and absolutely delicious breakfast! This was our second visit to Rectory Farm and we will definitely come again.

Jon, Boussy-st. antoine

There is nothing better than being in England's countryside by a city couple. The Rectory Farm B&B was fabulous with all its history and yet we felt at home and very welcome by Mary Anne and Robert The room was comfortable and we had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious and made to order. The B&B was centrally located for all our excursions day to day. There was a pub located just across the churchyard where we had our dinner. We had a wonderful time and would love to do it again in the future.

Carol, Glendale heights

Very warm welcome with tea and cake each day. Charming house. Excellent en-suite room (as booked). Breakfast generous with choice of cooked or really good home made stewed fruit, muffins, croissants. Guests' own sitting room with fire lit. Probably the best B & B we have ever stayed in. Owners found time to give us guideance about the area. We will definately return. We were able to buy some of the farm's top quality beef to take home.

If you want a, excellent breakfast with homemade bread, preserves, fruit etc, endless cakes and muffins served to you in a very comfortable dining/sitting room, sleep in the lovely 2 bedrooms upstairs and in a peaceful village with the local owned pub a few mins away serving great food this is the B&B for you. Mary Anne and Robert are the most delightful owners who make you feel at home the minute you walk through the front door and can't do enough to make you feel welcome. We have stayed twice now and a friend came with us this time in need of a restful time which he had. Thankyou Mary Anne

Our hosts, Mary Ann and her husband, welcomed us with open arms when we had to stay at short notice after my mother's death and again for her cremation. Rectory Farm is a wonderful, extremely comfortable and relaxed place to stay. It was just like being in our own home and was absolutely perfect. I will return under different circumstances and I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this peaceful, well appointed home from home.

Katie, Bristol

This is our 2nd visit to Rectory Farm and our time there was as enjoyable as the last. Maryanne and Robert are excellent hosts and more than happy to help in any way they can. The double room we used, though not huge, is very comfortable with an excellent shower room. It is tranquil and overlooks the garden. Breakfast is of a good standard with local produce and Maryanne's gorgeous home made bread and preserves. The B and B is ideally situated for visiting Oxford, the surrounding area and for walking. My only problem in recommending Rectory Farm is that I want to keep it our secret!

Susan, Caerphilly

Mary Anne and Robert are the epitome of good hosts, welcoming, understanding and with nothing being too much trouble. A warm, welcoming house, with very comfortable beds, all mod-cons and the legendary wood fire in the guests' drawing room to thaw your bones after a cold day out. Mary Anne's eye for detail is apparent in all of the rooms, which are spotless and the opportunity to take home some Rectory Farm beef is not to be missed. Breakfast is outstanding with locally sourced produce and great coffee! The best B&B in Oxfordshire.

Tony, Shepton mallet

I have stayed at the lovely Rectory Farm many times over the years since my sons attended Oxford Uni. The welcome has always been warm and the breakfast unbeatable. I see Mary Anne and Roberts as close family friends. It was my first experience of Sawdays and has not been beaten!

Pauline, Silsden, west yorks

If you like to stay in an ancient Cotswold stone farmhouse in idyllic surroundings, then Rectory Farmhouse B&B is the place for you. Four of us were warmly welcomed into Robert and Mary Ann's home and were looked after like royalty during our three night break. A cosy fire in the guests' private lounge greeted our arrival and tea and home-made lemon drizzle cake set the scene. Mary Ann's breakfasts were exceptional. She makes her own preserves, compotes and breads and sources the delicious bacon locally. The bedrooms are beautiful and the beds comfy. This may well be the best B&B we know.

Tricia, Ragdale, leicestershire

Fabulous! A freezing cold weekend was warmed wonderfully by Mary Ann and Robert's welcome and their company. Rectory Farm is set back from the road in a very quiet village, so there is no noise, the rooms are excellent as is the breakfast, and there is a warm and cosy sitting room with a wood burning stove for guests' use. If you return early (which we did owing to the freezing temperatures over the weekend) you are not stuck in your room, but have somewhere warm and comfortable to sit. We cannot imagine how it could be bettered and we will definately be returning! An outstanding B&B.

Local points of interest from Mary Anne Florey

  • The villagers of Northmoor own the pub which is 2 minutes walk from Rectory Farm. The Red Lion run by Ian and Lisa who are real 'foodies' serving delicious meals in a warm, cosy and welcoming atmosphere and have won 2017 Sawdays pub of the year.
  • In October 2017 we were "tried, tested, and recommended" by The Telegraph, and rated 8/10!
  • Village market every 3rd Saturday - this is a 'no red tape event'!!! Coffee and homemade cake, meat from Northmoors friendly farmers, plants, crafts etc.
  • You can buy our grass fed beef to take home with you from The Northmoor Meat Company which also supplies The Red Lion.
  • The Florey family have been farming here for 100 years in 2015!
  • Lots of easy walks from the farmhouse - bring your boots!!
