Please note: The thatched roof benefits outweigh the negatives. As it is a very close knit natural substance it is very insulative so therefore economical. The insurance is the same as a tile or slate roof and the thatch is 60 minutes fire retardent. The cost for the roof is between £2-4,000 every 15 years.

The Thatched Cottage is a period thatched cottage dating back to the early 1600’s with later extensions creating the spacious family home it is today. The property is arranged over two floors and the accommodation, as it is used today, is as follows:

The entrance hall provides access to all the ground floor rooms and the stairs to the first floor. The kitchen is fully fitted and has an Aga with the south facing conservatory adjoining. The drawing room and sitting room both have Clearview log burners. On the ground floor there is a study, a utility and a cloakroom.
One of the main features of the property is the wonderful conservatory which is a fantastic entertaining room with doors to the terrace and garden.

On the first floor there is a large master bedroom with wardrobes, 3 further bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room and a link bedroom as well as several wardrobes.
