Detached Village Farm House

Whittington House dates from the mid 18th Century with later 19th century additions. The property has recently undergone significant modernisation with new bathrooms, flooring, heating system and electrics yet has retained many traditional features including flagstone floors, bay windows, exposed beams, open fireplaces including an inglenook. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and comprises four reception rooms on the ground floor and a well-equipped, vaulted kitchen/breakfast room with central island unit and French doors into the garden. Next to the kitchen is the useful utility room. From the drawing room, stairs rise to the first floor where there is the principal bedroom suite with walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom and wet room. There are 2 further bedrooms on the first floor, a bathroom and a family shower room. Bedrooms five and six are on the second floor.

Local legend is that Dick Whittington set off from Whittington House for his journey to London.


Whittington House has pretty gardens to the front and rear enclosed by a stone wall. Accessed off Vicarage Lane there is a gravel parking area with space to park a number of cars with an open fronted double garage. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with well established borders and a number of mature shrubs and specimen trees. A new paved terrace runs along the rear elevation of the property and is ideal for alfresco dining.


Whittington House is located in the picturesque village of Long Compton, within the conservation area. The village is situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the borders of North Oxfordshire, North Gloucestershire and South Warwickshire. The village has a general store, nursery and primary school, a village hall, sports field and an award winning village pub which is a short walk away. The property is well placed for Daylesford Farm shop and Soho Farmhouse. The market towns of Chipping Norton, Shipston-on-Stour and Moreton-in-Marsh are all within easy reach, providing a range of every day facilities, whilst the cultural centres of Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford provide a wider range of recreational and educational opportunities. National railway services are available in Moreton-in-Marsh, Banbury and Oxford Parkway.

In addition there is excellent network of footpaths for walking. Another feature of the village is the variety and number of societies that enhance village life.


From Chipping Norton take the A3400 north towards Stratford-upon-Avon. Proceed through the village of Long Compton and opposite the village stores turn right into Vicarage Lane and the entrance to Whittington House is the second entrance on the left.
