Byeways is a beautiful thatched cottage built circa 1650 located in the Cotswold village of Long Compton. The village of Long Compton, which gets it's name for the length of the village extending along the old road joining Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon, is considered to be the gateway to the Cotswolds. It is steeped in history, with links to early kings, St. Augustine and Shakespeare, and it is rife with myths and legends. The Rollright Stone circle is a walk away and the church's lych gate is a photographer's dream with the popular Red Lion pub offering an excellent menu and superb ales. The cottage sleeps 6 (1 Super king on the ground floor, king on the first floor and a room with two singles). There is also a travel cot available.

Children will love the country garden, when you decide to relax and take a break from all the sight seeing.More

About the neighbourhood

It is filled with a mixture of rare and everyday objects, furniture and textiles collected since its completion in 1612.

This gives a remarkable insight into the ancient art of falconry.
