Long Compton, Warwickshire, England
Byeways is a beautiful thatched cottage built circa 1650 located in the Cotswold village of Long Compton. <BR><BR>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.
