Who we are

  1. We're James & Felicity Dolleymore, a married couple in our mid thirties. We moved to Lower Farm just over a year ago to run the business of four barn-converted self-catering cottages located next to the farmhouse. These are of course also available for exchange and can be seen at
    We spent the first six months renovating the farmhouse and have been updating the cottages, originally converted 13 years ago, and fortunately in a much healthier state than the farmhouse was!
    We love to travel and are keen to do more now that the business is up and running, and were recommended by James's South African aunt & uncle.
    We're looking for exchanges outside the UK and will need some notice so that the cottages can be looked after during your stay, that's unless you want to stay in a cottage in which case it's a question of availability.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Situated at the end of the small village of Noke, Lower Farm is a non working farm five miles from Oxford City Centre adjoining the RSPB wetland reserve of Otmoor, a 1000-acre haven for winter birds.
Stunning views across Otmoor and farmland gives the impression you're on the African savannah rather than English countryside given the flat surroundings.
A 20 minute walk will take you up the hill into the neighbouring village of Beckley with a fantastic, and typically English, country pub - the Abingdon Arms.
