    Property description
    Long Compton
    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    The Reading Room is a recently converted barn. It used to be a coaching stable and was then converted into a Church Reading Room, where the local vicar would read the bible to his parishoners. After many years of falling into disrepair it was finally converted into a holiday cottage in 2013.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Lovely stay, really nice place. We stayed in Feb so didn't get to use the garden and BBQ but imagine this would be a wonderful option in the summer months. Lots of space for this kids to run around. The Mezzanine bedroom is a great feature but may not be practical depending on the make up of your group. However,... more
