Charming well maintained farmhouse on Little Compton's West Main Road built in the early 1700's. Old wide pine floor boards with area rugs bring a cozy, homey feeling ..
Back yard is private with shaded sitting area and beyond that a large sunny area with clothesline.
Perennial border lines the south side of the circular driveway.
Patio is ideal for outdoor dining or enjoying the shade.
Farmstand and bakery are located next to farmhouse. A wide variety of vegetables and berries are grown on the farm. Almost a one stop shopping -dairy, cold drinks, bread and lots of shelf items to prepare in the well equipped kitchen.

this was our second stay at the little compton farmhouse. with the addition of the outdoor shower, it now has everything we're looking for in a beach vacation: charming and well-maintained old home with a farm stand and bakery down the driveway, easy access to the beach, fish store and ice cream shop down the road, outdoor shower, and nice patio with gas and charcoal grills. we couldn't be happier. and the icing on the cake is that you are very well taken care of by coll the owner and suzie the property manager. we'll be back again for sure!
We stay here every summer with our 5 children and love it. There is just something really comfortable and charming about an old house. It has attention to detail that you don't see in modern houses, from the solid wood doors with little metal latches in every room to the narrow back staircase that you have to duck down to go up. My kids especially love that staircase!
Despite being an old house, everything inside is immaculate, with plenty of fresh towels and crisp clean sheets. The cable and wi-fi internet keep it current, not that you really want to spend a ton of time inside in front of a screen when Little Compton is so beautiful in the summer!
The house is bright and sunny inside, and has a cute covered flagstone patio off the mud room. I heard that Coll put in an outdoor shower in the off season, which we're excited to try out this summer. The big front yard has soft grass that is comfortable to sit and picnic on. The back yard has a picnic table and a grove of cedar trees that my kids like to climb and play in. We usually grill outside and have dinner at the picnic table.
The master bedroom is spacious, and my husband and I have never EVER slept on a more comfortable bed. We wish we could take it home with us! We can also fit 2 kid sized airbeds and a portable crib for the baby on the floor and still not feel cramped. Our kids sleep like rocks when we're visiting.
Between the farm and bakery, you have almost everything you need for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nothing is better than corn picked within the past hour, or fresh real tomatoes. Once you try the produce from the farm stand, you'll never eat another grocery store tomato!
If you're coming to Little Compton for a vacation, you know about the gorgeous beaches, the bike riding, and the general beauty of the area. Between Suzie and Coll, you'll get the friendliest part of the town too. And to top it off, you can bring your dog (which we do!)
My family, friends and I had an amazing time at Coll Walker's house. We enjoyed wonderful biking, fresh produce from their farmstand, easy access to beaches, and our host's warm company all week. Coll brought over fresh bass one evening for us to grill, and Suzie helped us with all our needs during our stay. I would recommend this place to anyone.
The owner was most pleasant, accomodating and easy to work with. Their roadside stand was superb and the sandwiches at Wilma's was scrumptious!!! We enjoyed the area and the rest and relaxation. However, the house could use some updating, interior paint and new wallpaper. This would make the house irrisitible to renters.
