Idyllic thatched cottage by the Thames

Orchard Cottage is believed to date back to 1600 and has been elegantly and sympathetically renovated by the current owners. The house is located in the pretty village of Dorchester-on-Thames and has three/four bedrooms.

The accommodation is spread over two floors and has lots of good period features. The kitchen sits to one side of the house with a door to the garden and the duel aspect sitting room, with original beams and a fantastic open fireplace, sits at the heart of the house. Glazed double doors lead through to the dining room with its vaulted ceilings and doors out to the dining terrace. The first floor has a generous master bedroom and two further bedrooms with a fourth bedroom in the self-contained annexe.
