    Mr White

    “Thatchdown is a charming old world cottage in the heart of an outstanding English village.”

    Its the kind of higgledy-piggledy house any true cottage lover will instantly fall in love with. Its old world charm was lovingly amplified by the time it takes to modernize such a great property. Most surprisingly was its size, as its truly a family sized home. While I had read a number of silly little complaints before I arrived...such as low head height and difficult stairs to climb in all truth all its eccentricity simply added to the magic of the place. The kitchen was very well equipped ...

While I had read a number of silly little complaints before I arrived...such as low head height and difficult stairs to climb in all truth all its eccentricity simply added to the magic of the place. The kitchen was very well equipped and the garden like the house was much larger than I expected. For me the clock collection was just brilliant and I loved all the extras. The modern bathroom with role-top bath was brilliant for a steamy soak at the end of the day with a glass of wine. Local walks and places to visit are too numerous to count and my dogs had the time of there lives. Left in peace for two weeks to rest we enjoyed every day. Highly recommended, Five stars!
