Situated in the picturesque and historic village of Long Compton, in an 'area of outstanding natural beauty', fabulous walks are on the doorstep with great views and our highly recommended local pub. Perfectly located for visiting Stratford upon Avon, Oxford and touring the beautiful Cotswolds. We welcome you to our home and to your own grade II listed private thatched annexe with bedroom, living room and sun room for a relaxing and peaceful retreat. Ideal for solo travellers or couples.

The space

This is an eighteenth century thatched annexe to our house on two floors, with own access/front door, living room, bedroom and sun room with beautiful view of the garden and village church. Your own private space (locked door between houses), with TV, wifi and tea and coffee facilities. Due to the age of this part of the house it is quirky and romantic!... the roll top bath, as you will see from the photo, is in the bedroom and there is the addition of an en suite toilet. The loft bedroom has original beams and sloping ceiling to one side. There is a wood-burning stove to enjoy cosy nights by the fire. Continental breakfast is included (there is no extra charge and we're happy to try and accommodate any special requests). There is also a refrigerator for guests to use and we provide crockery, cutlery etc. for eating in and picnics.

Guest access

There is an outside seating area with own access, guests are welcome to enjoy our enclosed and peaceful garden. Parking available at front of house or on private driveway.

Interaction with guests

At least one of us is around most of the time but it is our aim to leave our guests in peace and privacy. We're always available by phone to help with any queries or anything you may need during your stay.

Other things to note

Please note the bathroom facilities are upstairs, there is a bath and en suite toilet, there is no shower or kitchen.
Due to the nature of the old building and it being on two floors regrettably there is no wheelchair access. For taller people height is restricted slightly on one side of the bedroom and under one of the beams downstairs leading through to the sun room.
A workspace can be set up if required, just let us know in advance.
We can make an exception for babies (travel cot available on request, please contact us first) but because of the set up of the property, i.e. open fire place and stairs, the accommodation is not suitable for young children, toddlers or crawlers.
We are sorry that as we have free range chickens we are unable to accept pets at this time. We have our own friendly but reserved rescue dog called Fern.

We really enjoyed our stay with Kate and Paul, who are friendly and helpful hosts. The annexe has everything you could need, including tea and coffee making facilities, tasty biscuits, fast and reliable wifi, and a comfortable bed with lovely quality linens. We didn’t have the chance to try the fire. The outlook on to the garden and the local church beyond is quintessential English countryside, and the village is quiet and peaceful for a good night’s sleep. The local pub was also friendly and had good food. The information booklet provided gives ideas for walks or drives, and places to eat, as well as history of the area, and how to work the fire. I wish all places included this. We were provided with a delicious (and different) breakfast each morning to set us up for our explorations of the countryside.

We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely thatched cottage, it had all you could want. Breakfast was fantastic...lots of local produce. A picture perfect location especially the garden outlook. We highly recommend it, particularly those who want to avoid the really busy tourist accommodation areas but still be close enough to access the Cotswolds easily.

We had a fantastic time here. Paul and Kate are more than welcoming and offered lots of information and things to do in the area. The annex is stunning and we particularly like the fire in the lounge room. Would highly recommend and think it's a bargain for what you get.

Thank you for your kind words and recommendation Alex it is much appreciated. We are so glad you got to see the Cotswolds at such a lovely time of year and were able to relax and enjoy the fire, not this week with these temperatures of 30 degrees! We really hope to see you both again, maybe next time you are back in the UK for a summer break

Stayed here for two days for a short break and some relaxation. The annex was perfect and completely as described: very cosy and comfortable. Inside the annex the facilities were great and well considered - we found everything we needed and more (fresh fruit, biscuits, etc). Kate was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome throughout our visit. She also makes an amazing breakfast, which was a very welcome bonus! We'd definitely be pleased to recommend the annex to friends or to stay their again ourselves.

Well where do we start? My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in the picturesque peaceful cottage. Paul and Kare are fabulous hosts and they are there to help as little or as much as you need them. A 2 night stay consisted of a night at the local pub Friday evening, a walk from the cottage serving excellent food. Saturday's lie in was great the street is so quiet. The breakfast was one of the highlights for us. A surprise each morning with a generous selection of pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereals and eggs. You are within 10/15 minutes to many of the quaint Cotswolds villages so Paul gave us an idea of which routes to take to visit them. Saturday evening we went to the near village of Chipping Norton for food but we couldn't wait to get back to the cottage and snuggle back up in front of that fire. The gardens and views from the cottage are pretty amazing too , despite it being October we wrapped up and sat out there for some afternoon drinks .We were even discussing returning here before this weekend was even over with- Paul and Kate - we will be back! Thanks for making it a lovely stay for us. Richard and Gwen

We loved our stay in Long Compton. The Airbnb is amazing - I was almost a little nervous that all of the 5 star reviews may be too good to be true but it wasn't - it really is a fantastic flat with lovely little touches that make it the perfect weekend getaway. Few highlights - we really enjoyed having the free standing bath in the bedroom, the bed is super cosy, lovely fireplace to keep you warm, robes and slippers to lounge around in and a lovely pub The Red Lion only a 10 minute walk away. Both Kate and Paul are great, really friendly and make a banging breakfast! I would definitely recommend to anyone and hope to be back in the further

The rooms and the garden were awesome! Cosy living room with a log burner, spacious bedroom with a roll top bath, use of the sun room too, ticked every box! The place was spotless and the hosts were contactable at all times should we require anything! We brought our baby daughter and Kate even offered to put up a travel cot in advance, she heated baby food for us too. The continental breakfast was far from basic! Plenty of tasty food to set us up for the day, we were sad to leave!
