Set amidst glorious rolling countryside and in a designated Area of Outst anding Natural Beauty, our North Cotswolds ‘home from home’ at Little Compton is your great escape – the perfect location for exploring unspoilt villages and historical towns. Easily accessible on the London Paddington - Hereford Great Western line and conveniently positioned between Oxford - Stratford upon Avon - Cheltenham, a couple of days break may – well, simply not be enough!

Once a Victorian schoolhouse built in 1854 by the local brewery and more recently a lively day nursery for surrounding village toddlers, our converted home has a more genteel but still carefree atmosphere. We offer four comfortable en-suite rooms, private sitting rooms and a choice of indulgent or active pastimes and treats we are happy to prepare or book for you, some listed below:
Bike hire - country walks - delicious hampers - classic car hire / tours - dinner - theatre bookings - supper trays - stag and hen weekends - falconry - retail therapy - horse stabling / riding - relaxing.
Or just tell us what you would like …and we will always endeavour to accommodate….
Guests are invited to arrive between 4.00pm – 6.00pm and to vacate your bedrooms by 10.30am on the day of departure.
Very regrettably NO dogs allowed in the house, peacefully NO children under 16 years of age unless by special arrangement.
We also offer the facility of a private meeting room with light refreshments - away from the distractions of the office environment.
We look forward to welcoming you and making your stay with us a memorable one and by no means the last!
