Long Compton is a village and parish in South Warwickshire. It is part of the Cotswolds National Landscape (formerly the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and has many of the characteristics of a typical Cotswold village – thatched limestone cottages, medieval church, pretty hedge-rowed lanes leading out to gentle green hills. It is a lovely place to live and visit and is fortunate to be positioned within easy reach of both Oxford and Stratford upon Avon, as well as all of the well-known attractions in the Cotswolds itself – the Neolithic stone circle – the Rollright Stones – is within walking distance.
The village is a very active community – as other parts of this site demonstrate – with local organisations covering almost every aspect of village life. It is also lucky to contain an excellent General Stores and one of the best inns in the area, The Red Lion offers good real ales, first class dining and a very warm welcome for villagers and visitors alike.
