The Thatch - a cottage that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

Welcome to The Thatch, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.

Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

The Thatch is a beautiful detached period property, which has recently been lovingly renovated and refurbished by its interior designer owner. The cottage is located in the quintessential Cotswold village of Todenham, three miles away from the picturesque market town of Moreton in Marsh, with its many shops, pubs and restaurants, and direct train line to London. There are many country walks accessible directly from the cottage, which is also well positioned for exploring the many lovely villages and towns of the north Cotswolds, including Chipping Campden, Broadway and Stow-on-the-Wold. Well known tourist attractions, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and Oxford are also all just a short drive away.

The elegant interior of the property beautifully complements the traditional character features, which include wooden beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls, and a stunning inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. Modern facilities in the cottage include a large SMART TV, wifi and a well presented kitchen.

The Thatch sleeps six people in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms and a downstairs cloakroom. There is a lovely garden at the side of the property and off-street parking for two cars. The property is perfect for a family with children over the age of 8 or a group of friends seeking an idyllic rural retreat, in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold countryside.

Accessibility, health and safety

This is a period property and has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs, low beams on the ground floor and a low ceiling in the ensuite bathroom, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.

The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.


No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

Hen and Stag Parties

Hen and Stag Parties are not permitted.


In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.

If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Other Activities:

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Car: Todenham is easily accessed by car, being located one mile away from the A429 (Fosse Way) and three miles away from the A44, which are two of the main roads running through the North Cotswolds.

Train: The nearest railway station to Todenham is Moreton-in-Marsh (approximately three miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately 90 minutes.

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 38 miles, approximately 50 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 70 miles, approximately 90 minute drive.
