Children Provisions

Families and children are very welcome here at Oxford Country Cottages and we endeavour to be very well equipped to enable your trip to be as hassle free as possible, as we know how much baggage travelling with children can entail!!

High Chairs and Travel Cots are available free of charge on request. Each Cottage has a selection of children cutlery, crockery, beakers and books for bedtime!

Our Farm Shop stocks a small supply of wipes, nappies, snacks and ready made food for babies and young children, in addition to calpol and sudocrem for those emergency moments! You will also find a selection of Board Games and Puzzles to borrow and entertain the children and your family.

Our gated Courtyard Garden features a Wendy House full of toys, Table Tennis and Jacuzzi Hot Tub for the bigger kids and a BBQ area for all the family to enjoy.

Should you need anything else, that seems to be lacking, please do ask at the Farmhouse, as we are only too happy to help and have children ourselves, so are pretty well stocked to assist!

Things to Do!

Village Playground – We are fortunate enough to have our very own Playground in the Village of Noke, featuring, swings, slides, and adventure Playground and Zip Wire! On leaving Oxford Country Cottages after crossing over the small bridge, directly on your left, you will find a Plaque leading you to the Playground in the Playing Field – enjoy!

Rectory Farm – Rectory Farm is found in the village of Stanton St.John and is one of our favourite places to go with our young Daughter. On leaving Noke, turn left and keep going for a couple of miles and you will find it sign-posted on your left. It offers a fantastic Farm Shop, excellent PYO, Tractor Rides, Bouncy Castles and huge Straw Bales for the Children to exhaust themselves on! Only open during the Spring and Summer months. No entry fee.

The Milk Shed – The Milk Shed at Weston On the Green is a wonderful place to go to for a Family Brunch. It is very family friendly, well equipped, serves delicious food and has the added bonus of a Ice-Cream Parlour on site! Just off the A34 on the way to the M40.

Blenheim Palace – Located in the delightful village of Woodstock, just 7 miles from Noke. Again, one of our firm favourites, as there is always something going on for everyone to enjoy! The Pleasure Gardens is an excellent area with small children, as it boasts two Adventure Playgrounds, a Butterfly House, a lovely Cafe and Picnic Area and beautiful grounds to walk around in, with a Train ride to and from the main Palace. The Palace itself is fascinating to explore and it also offers miles of stunning walks and gorgeous gardens to admire and, throughout the year, holds various interesting and fun Events, do check out their website for more seasonal information. A real must if you are staying with us, pay for one day and they’ll convert your tickets into annual passes!

"We stayed in the Blenheim cottage for 2 nights, but wish it had been much longer. The farm & cottage were absolutely adorable, charming & comfy. The wifi was very fast. The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds were comfy. The whole atmosphere was peaceful & enjoyable. James & his family were wonderful hosts. The cottages are close enough for a quick drive into Oxford, but it would be easy to spend the day relaxing at the cottage and walking around the Village of Noke. Idyllic setting!"

Janet Farmer – 19th March 2018

"This place has it all, the peace and quiet, the views, very tidy and well looked after cottages - well worth a 5 star. I have stayed here a few times over the years with work and it just keeps getting better every time we visit; nothing is a problem to James and his wife. It’s the best cottage I have ever stayed in, over the years I have been in all the cottages and they all have their own unique features. Can’t wait to visit again!"

"We absolutely loved the cottage. It was beautiful, the furnishings were great, and the cottage had everything we could possibly have needed- including a high chair and travel cot (and plastic plates etc for little ones). There were lots of lovely features: an AGA, a wood burner, a hot tub, and a Wendy house full of toys for the kids. It was perfect! We look forward to coming back in the future"
