Long Compton is set in a Cotswold valley below the 3,000-year-old Rollright Stones.

This legendary ancient monument straddles the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border.

The surrounding hills are a mixture of farmland and woods traversed by many public footpaths.

In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it has a population of 70 plus.

Wheelwright Gardens is a newly-built development of unique three and four bedroomed Cotswold houses on the edge of the village. They have been designed to high energy-saving national standards with an Energy Performance Rating of Band B.

This rating has been achieved through large south facing triple glazed windows, together with 9kw. air source heat pumps, pv solar panels and a high level of insulation. This means that annual energy costs will be around £350 and £500, dependent on occupation and usage.

To continue the eco-friendly theme, rainwater is harvested and filtered to provide water for washing machines, toilets and garden use, saving water, saving money.

The five houses have been built by Avoncroft Homes of Stratford, who have a reputation for building to a high quality.

Their kitchens and bathrooms are fitted and supplied with the major appliances, including double oven and induction hob.

Living accommodation is spacious, with a ground floor bedroom and bathroom. Upstairs there is a balcony on three of the houses with superb pastoral views.

The four bedroomed house has an additional en-suite shower room.

Wheelwright Gardens is situated in The Old Road at the south of the village.

The local high quality pub/restaurant is a short walk away.

There is an ancient but thriving church, general stores, primary school, recreation ground, village hall and many societies and clubs. There are several state, private and public schools within easy reach.
