Built in 1640, this heart-warming detached accommodation has been designed for a couple or for a small family seeking to explore the diverse landscape of the surrounding countryside. The interior exudes a sense of character the moment you step through the porch, where you can hand your raincoats and leave your walking shoes before relaxing into the evening. The beams in the sitting room frame the plush seating arrangement, where you and your partner can cosy up in front of the TV or choose to indulge in a good book. Step into the kitchen, where an impressive AGA awaits you, enticing the chef of the party to cook up a storm before joining your loved ones at the dining table to celebrate a wonderful holiday and plan the next days adventure. From here, follow the staircase up to the bedrooms, comprising of a king-size double and a single single bed, ideal for any additional guests. To the outside of the cottage, a spacious garden area awaits, where your canine companions can roam freely as you rustle up a summer dish on the barbecue or dip into your private hot tub to soak up your picturesque surroundings and open up a refreshing beverage as you catch the final glimpses of sun. If you fancy a special treat one evening, choose to stroll to the local pub where you will be delighted to find a delicious dining menu and a welcoming atmosphere. To keep you busy whilst staying here, find a plethora of walks and cycle routes from the doorstep of the cottages, each one promising breath-taking scenery and plenty of picnic opportunities along the way. Walk to the woods, where in Spring they are a carpet of Bluebells. During the Summer alive with wildlife and equally stunning in Autumn months. For those feeling slightly more adventurous, Twinwoods Adventure is located a short drive away, offering opportunities for skydiving, shooting, racing and surfing.

A perfect cottage for a couple with pets

“The Little Thatch Cottage was perfect for us and our 2 dogs.” Beautiful house and fantastic and secure garden.The Aga is fantastic. The owners Karen and David were extremely helpful and thoughtful. They even brought a paddling pool round for our dogs. We opted for the gourmet barbecue experience where David, ably assisted by Karen cooked up a feast for us. Their beautiful dog Fred entertained our 2 dogs. The food and company was superb and well worth the money. The local pub, the Fox and Hounds, is excellent and very dog friendly. Harold Park and the River at Felmersham are nearby and lovely places to walk the dogs. Sharnbrook Butchers, Coop and Nisi Shop are all good and 10 minutes away and the local shop in Riseley sells the best bread. Sainsburys, Aldi and Morrisons are 15 minutes away in Bedford and the Asda in Rushden is excellent. This is a wonderful, unspoilt part of the world and, long may it continue. We would definitely book again and thoroughly recommend this cottage and this beautiful part of England. Steve, Sue, Rosie and Bobbie.
