Summary

Dating back to 1845 to house the family of a worker at the local brewery, there are many wonderful character features such as the exposed Cotswold stone feature wall, exposed beams, flagstone flooring and cosy wood burning stove.

Location

Star Cottage is one of a row of six traditional cottages on a quiet lane in the peaceful village of Little Compton. With little traffic besides the occasional horses, this idyllic village benefits from having an attractive Manor House, a historic Norman church and a popular country pub, The Red Lion, just a five minute walk from the cottage.

Little Compton is surrounded by glorious countryside which forms part of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many lovely country walks and cycle routes on its doorstep. There are also a number of tourist attractions nearby including The National Trust owned Chastleton House and Garden, The Rollright Stones, the Cotswolds Distillery and Batsford Arboretum. The village is close to the popular Cotswold market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton and Moreton-in-Marsh, and the much loved Daylesford Organic Farm shop is only six miles away, selling fresh local produce and offering a number of dining options. Further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace, Cheltenham and Oxford are easily accessible for day trips.
