ComptonHouse is a beautiful family home in a wonderful setting. It suited our big family group which ranged in age from 94 years to 23 months and gave everyone space and comfort. Having two en suite bedrooms in the adjacent ground floor annexe meant peace for the oldies and no problems with stairs.the house is very well equipped and the lovely big dining area in the kitchen was great. The long terrace on the southern aspect allowed us to take full Advantage of the weather. The children loved the adventure playground and all the tennis , pool, table tennis and croquet. There was one problem: wedid have problems with the fire smoking. Great walks in the area and lovely villages and towns too
