This 17th-century, detached thatched cottage has been superbly restored and offers families and groups of friends a unique experience, with the added benefit of the barn annexe with sleeping and en-suite facilities, and a private living room area. You will find original features throughout, blended with contemporary conveniences and the cosy, traditional living room at its heart including a fantastic inglenook fireplace. The heritage and history of the building, thought to be the oldest in the village of Sternfield, make Thatched Cottage the quintessential chocolate box cottage.
