Holiday cottage in Warwickshire Stable Cottage, Long Compton

Perfectly placed to explore the Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford; a tastefully furnished, well equipped cottage with under-floor heating and private parking.

There is an award winning pub in the village within easy walking distance of Stable Cottage. The area is very popular with walkers and cyclists due to the number of footpaths and bridleways nearby including the Cotswold Way and the Darcy Dalton Way.

Stable Cottage is virtually equidistant from the beautiful and ancient market towns of Chipping Norton, Stow on the Wold, Moreton in Marsh and Shipston on Stour, all of which are 5-15 minutes drive away and have a fantastic choice of antique shops and tea rooms. We are also only 20 minutes from the historic town of Chipping Campden and very popular tourist villages of Bourton on the Water and Burford. Stratford upon Avon is no more than 30 minutes drive with its picturesque river and canal basin. It is, of course, Shakespeare’s birthplace and home to the famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre (known locally as the RSC). Blenheim Palace, seat of the Duke of Marlborough, is about 25 minutes in the opposite direction in Woodstock and 15 minutes further on you arrive in the ancient city of Oxford where you can wander around the historic Oxford colleges (famous for Inspector Morse), punt on the river or shop until you drop! If shopping is your thing there is also a retail outlet at Bicester Village again about half an hour drive from here. Coventry Cathedral is about 45 minutes away and there is a whole days entertainment at Warwick Castle which is approximately 35 minutes away.

Nearer to home there is plenty of stunning scenery to explore on foot using our extensive footpath network and not forgetting to stop for refreshments in one of the many local pubs, all of which offer great food. The Rollright Stones are literally 10 minutes walk from the cottage and National Trust's Chastleton House is 4 miles away.

We are keen animal lovers and if you are too you are welcome to explore our smallholding and meet the menagerie, they are all friendly and used to people. We have two rescue donkeys, Billy and O'Mally who love to play and roll in the paddock.They enjoy fuss and attention, Billy is brave and a cheeky chappie whilst O'Mally is more wary and can take a while to trust you. We have two home bred goats, Orlando is the bigger of the two and very friendly, he loves a head scratch, Veronica, his little sister, enjoys sunbathing on the grass. We also have two geese, lots of guinea fowl charging around pointlessly, chickens and two beautiful cockerels (they are shut away at night so your sleep won't be disturbed!). We must not forget Biscuit the horse and our three adorable dogs, Candy, Peggy and Keeper the failed working bloodhound!

Chris is an enthusiastic bee-keeper and will happily chat to you about his bees and even lend a suit if you fancy a look at them with him-they are at the far end of our big field so won't worry you.

We also have plenty of wildlife and lots of beautiful birds, including an owl nest box camera if the time of year is right. If you are interested to know more please just ask.
