Not a country cottage so no low ceilings, dark rooms and draughts..just well insulated and thoughtfully designed cabin with large windows to take advantage of the view. Definitely not glamping either- full facilities but slightly quirky in style. Not located on a picture postcard street - just in large garden at end of quiet cul de sac of bungalows so no struggle to find parking as ample room here in own courtyard for cars, motorbikes, cycles, etc.
Visiting on own or as a couple then enjoy Super King bed but easily splits into twins. Space in bedroom for cot and single folding bed or double inflatable mattress available for use in Sitting Room. Might be a bit cosy but great if only for a night or two. I have furnished in shabby chic style but with quality items all repurposed to create comfortable but functional environment. Love this quote left in visitor book "You close the door behind you and you've entered a secluded little retro world" You want a bit of peace and quiet well that is relative as most of my guests are escaping town life so find it very tranquil and scarcely notice road that runs at back of property. Others notice at first but soon realise view is more of a distraction especially when dining alfresco or enjoying the stars due to village Dark Sky status. Do remind guests that will need a torch when walking back from excellent Red Lion as no street lights. Having family members with disabilities I am aware of problems finding suitable accommodation so have designed with that in mind - not the complete set up but Octogenarian wheelchair bound friend stayed and he and wife found perfect for their needs. No sumptuous cottage garden - I'm the gardener so have to be realstic. Managed to save a few mature trees during build process in 2015 and much new planting that will be magnificent in couple of years but in meantime my natural border does include grasses and thistles as after all a weed is only a plant in wrong place and bees and butterflies love. Also have bird feeders and nesting box just outside bedroom window and blue tits particuarly love. Have thought about privacy carefully as their are occupants in main property but layout has been thought through to ensure everyone has own space without infringement on others enjoyment. Have had usual trials with IT but having moved extender box now seem to have a stronger wifi signal. I have no problem uploading to Social Media and checking emails whilst in Little Bulpits. Though most of my guests seem to really enjoy 'turning phones off' and listening to late Aunt's eclectic vinyl collection on multi media player. Similarly there is a TV but not dominant plasma screen just one discreetly tucked into corner. Have had guests for long term stays so always happy to discuss options if you need a base while working away or if between house sales.
Easy access for less able as ramped access. Have had wheelchair user guests stay. Outdoor space includes personal parking for two vehicles and garden/terrace with choice of seating areas.

The ethos has been to create a comfortable property from which guests can enjoy surroundings. Set apart from main property in own private 'courtyard' setting bordered by natural garden on one side. Little Bulpits is at end of a quiet cul de sac but is adjacent to main road at rear so there is intermittent traffic noise competing with the birdsong. Long Compton is a dark sky registered village so no street lighting which is great for astronomers but less handy if walking back from pub so torch provided. Easy access for less able. Private off road parking for cars/motorbikes/cycles. WiFi (fibre broadband), TV, Vintage style multi media radio/ player. Meals/laundry can be provided by arrangement. I am a Neal's Yard Organic Consultant so can supply extra toiletries, etc. Eco cleaners, etc. used where ever possible.
Essentially just hope that guests will enjoy their stay and appreciate the slightly quirky nature of the cabin and surroundings. It is a quiet neighbourhood so appreciated if music not played at loud volume.
I like to be available to personally welcome or at least catch up during stay. but generally respect your privacy and not intrude on your holiday. I leave a comprehensive local reference book for guests abut always happy to use my local knowledge to assist with recommendations.
I am a born and bred country girl and have lived and worked in lovely South Warwickshire/North Oxfordshire area all my life and have strong farming connections. In my 20s my social life was Young Farmers and I travelled on a scholarship to New Zealand on a homestay exchange. I love this form of travelling as you get to learn so much more about an area, hence my affinity with Airbnb. I haven't had one career and am rather a Portfolio person and enjoy the challenge of having several interconnecting jobs hence at present I do Accounts for husband and another local business, am Village Parish Clerk, a Team Leader for Neal's Yard Organics and not forgetting acting as host for a holiday let. I am an avid reader of all and everything, have fairly traditional musical tastes, enjoy the theatre but although Stratford is so close manage about one play a year. More recently I have discovered watercolours and I try to do a Painting with Words each week which acts as a visual/prose diary, some of my daubs now adorn the walls at Little Bulpits although I think an exhibition is far off.
