Thatcher's Cottage holiday home details

Thatcher’s Cottage is a detached Grade II listed, thatched cottage dating back to the 1600s. This beautiful ‘chocolate box’ timber framed property is surrounded by a third of an acre of pretty cottage gardens, with sloping lawns, flower beds and a south facing terrace overlooking farmland. While the cottage has all the charm of its original features, the interior has been completely updated. The delightful country kitchen features an AGA, granite work tops and a stable door to the garden. Brick and wooden floors lay throughout the ground floor, with luxurious carpets upstairs for your comfort. Thatcher’s is a beautiful, romantic retreat with the most calming and relaxing feel, an absolute must in these busy times.

The cottage is situated down a quiet country lane in the heart of Constable Country, just a five minute walk to the village and pubs. There are many lovely villages in the local area including Nayland, Dedham, Kersey and Lavenham to name a few. The small market towns of Sudbury and Hadleigh are right on the door step with independent shops, boutiques and coffee shops as well as all of the main supermarkets and banks. Dedham Vale, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers a plenitude of rolling farmland, rivers, meadows and ancient woodlands to explore at your leisure.
