“A perfect thatched cottage”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 for a stay in October 2011

When we were planning our trip to England my husband wanted to stay in a thatched cottage. We couldn't have found one more perfect. An idyllic location, pretty garden, a lovely beamed living room with fireplace and the most amazing little staircase leading to a bedroom under the sloping roofline. We were smitten from the moment we walked in.

Add to that wonderfully helpful hosts, generous provisions and a village well located for touring the area and we know we'll be back.

Thanks Jane and Ian, for such a fantastic stay at Little Thatch.

“A dream come true”

I have always dreamed of a thatched cottage in England, and when I found Little Thatch, I knew I had to stay there.
Talk about dream come true! The hostess herself was on holiday, so Pete and Lynne (taking care of Jane's pets) took care of us. Picked us up from the train station, took us to the shop for supplies since we had no car, and looked after us the whole week.
We were to take Jessie the dog, for walks. We had friendly visits from Izzie the cat.
The garden was lovely even in early October, and the inside was just as lovely, from the cozy living room to the beamed bedroom upstairs. Everything we needed was provided. From a well stuffed welcome basket, to a well equipped kitchen and a clean and modern bathroom.
Since we didn't have a car, we had to walk, which we did with great pleasure. It took about an hour to walk to Akeley, for a pint or more in the pub. Or a tasty lunch. And of course there is a lot of other options for walking in the area.
All in all it was a week to remember with great pleasure, and we sure hope to come back to Little Thatch some day!

I am so glad you had such a lovely week and that our friends looked after you so well. They, in fact, were previous holidaymakers and have now been back six times! Thank you for posting the beautiful photos and I hope to meet you next time.

It was wonderful to share your lovely wedding day and I am so glad everything was perfect, including the weather! Yes, you must come back and enjoy the log fire where a warm welcome will always await you with a Welcome Basket, a pile of logs and a bottle of wine. Hope to see you then.
