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 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.

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

Unfortunately, Hen, Stag and other same sex groups are not allowed at The Thatch. Please note that same sex family groups are welcome.
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.
