About Little Bulpits

LITTLE BULPITS was the name of the field that became Compton Court.  Having been born in the village to a farming family, my Aunt Jean, added the name to the address.  This name derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "bula", a bull, plus "pytt", a pit or hollow, and was originally given as a topographic name to someone who lived by such a pit where bulls were held for stud purposes.   It therefore seems appropriate to transfer this element of the address to the newly created holiday let.

Nothing 17th Century about Little Bulpits -  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 views.  Definitely not glamping either as full facilities. 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 a cot. Single folding bed or double inflatable mattress available for use in Sitting Room. I have furnished in shabby chic style but with quality items all repurposed to create comfortable but functional environment.  Compact but well equipped kitchen.

Long Compton is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as views from windows testify. The village is well served by a network of footpaths, including the Macmillan Way which passes through Whichford/Long Compton Wood. The popular Red Lion Pub and excellent Village Shop are both a pleasant stroll away.
