Welcome to Star Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Star Cottage is a traditional Cotswold stone cottage, built in 1845 to house the family of a worker at the local brewery, in the beautiful village of Little Compton. The cottage combines two original cottages and is one of a row of six on a quiet lane, with little traffic apart from occasional horses. It is set back from the lane, with a pretty private front garden leading to the front door and a larger secluded garden with pond at the back of the cottage. Little Compton is very peaceful and picturesque, with a beautiful Manor House, a historic Norman Church and an excellent gastro-pub, the Red Lion, just five minutes walk from Star Cottage.

Star Cottage is a traditional Cotswold stone cottage, built in 1845 to house the family of a worker at the local brewery, in the beautiful village of Little Compton. The cottage combines two original cottages and is one of a row of six on a quiet lane, with little traffic apart from occasional horses. It is set back from the lane, with a pretty private front garden leading to the front door and a larger secluded garden with pond at the back of the cottage. Little Compton is very peaceful and picturesque, with a beautiful Manor House, a historic Norman Church and an excellent gastro-pub, the Red Lion, just five minutes walk from Star Cottage. There are numerous country walks and many beautiful Cotswold towns and villages are nearby, including Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton and Moreton-in-Marsh. Daylesford Organic Farmshop is only six miles away and Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace, Cheltenham and Oxford are all within easy reach. The cottage has been the much-loved weekend retreat of its owners and their friends for some years. It has been lovingly decorated and furnished as a home rather than a holiday let, with an exposed Cotswold stone wall and a lovely wood burning stove in the large, comfortable living room, a separate flag-stone floored dining room, and a well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a landline telephone, two flat screen televisions and a DVD player. There is also a wide range of original artwork on the walls, an original mural in the bathroom and an extensive library of books and DVDs to enjoy while at the cottage. Star Cottage sleeps a maximum of four people in two rooms, both with king size beds. The secluded enclosed garden at the rear of the cottage is a glorious suntrap to relax in and there is free on street parking on the quiet lane outside the cottage. Star Cottage is an ideal retreat for friends, couples or a small family, looking for a lovely cottage in a beautiful location.

About the neighbourhood
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
