Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An exquisite and substantial village house set in mature gardens.


For a full understanding of accommodation please refer to the included floor plans:

Built on the site of a former thatched cottage, the house is constructed of stucco elevations under a thatched roof. The renowned stonemasons Rattee & Kett not only rebuilt Thatched Cottage and also hand carved the stone fire places within the house.

The name Thatched Cottage is surprisingly misleading as what lies through the front door is substantial, well-proportioned house exuding light and warm accommodation with double height ceilings. What is clear from the rebuild is that the owners have taken the best elements from a period property and complementing them with the ease and practicalities of a modern home.

The garden lies principally to the rear and is segmented into rooms by mature yew hedging with a range of mature trees and plants. Accessed by a number of French doors from the house is the terrace which is perfect for entertaining. Cleverly planned walkways with spring bulbs pass through the garden and connect the rooms of the garden.

Of particular note is the rose clad pergola which lies centrally to the garden. The lawns are interspersed with mature trees and hedges and spring bulbs. There is a vegetable garden and fruit cages which are easily accessed from the kitchen.


• Thatched Cottage is situated in the parish of Hemingford Abbots, where much of the charming riverside village lies within the 'conservation area'.

• The local villages of Hemingford Abbots and Hemingford Grey offer general stores, post office, primary school, various public houses and restaurants.

• Huntingdon is 5 miles to the west where, for the commuter, there are fast and regular train services to London's Kings Cross taking approximately 51 minutes.

• The high tech University City of Cambridge is approximately 17 miles to the south east and offers a wide range of renowned independent schools for all age groups and excellent shopping, recreational and cultural facilities.

• The A14 is close at hand and leads south to the M11, M25 and London, and north to the A1, M1 & M6. Stansted international airport is approximately 40 miles away.
