The Thatch is a wonderful Grade II listed thatched cottage, dating principally from the 16th century with a much later extension in the mid 1990’s.
The end result is a delightful blend of old and new; the present owners have recently renovated the whole property, but period features remain including a wonderful inglenook fireplace in the sitting room with substantial oak beam above, together with a partially vaulted ceiling and further exposed trusses and beams. This room has a clearly defined dining area and flagstone floor and exposed stonework in one wall.
Elsewhere, modern living is exemplified with a high quality partially vaulted kitchen with an Aga. Upstairs the master bedroom with en-suite shower room and dressing room is at the back of the new extension with the first dedicated to a further bedroom and bathroom set into the roof with sloping ceilings and with the most fabulous views towards Wootton Hall and beyond. The roof was re-thatched in 2009.
