One-Off Feature

A unique `chocolate box` Grade 2 listed thatched stone cottage dating from 1650, heavily beamed throughout with a vaulted bedroom. A truly romantic hideaway, oozing with character, set in a pretty Conservation village with a beautiful old cottage garden and a stream outside.

General Info

Little Thatch is everybody's dream picture postcard of a perfect English country cottage and has been filmed for several TV programmes. The village of Lillingstone Lovell with just thirty houses has changed little over the centuries, there is no shop or pub and a lovely place to escape from the bustle of life. However, it is well situated for days out and many National Trust properties are close by. Oxford, Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds are less than an hour away. Warwick and Stratford upon Avon are not much further. London is less than an hour by train from Milton Keynes which is 10 miles away with a big shopping centre, theatre, snowdome and much more. It is half an hour to both the M1 and M40 and an easy drive to the nearest airports of Luton, Birmingham and Heathrow. A perfect location for touring.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The village is surrounded by fields and woods with lovely walks all around. A perfect area to explore the countryside and village pubs. Close by are several golf courses, Silverstone Circuit and Towcester races. The nearest town of Buckingham is close to the magnificent 18th Century National Trust gardens at Stowe. On the Northern edge of the Cotswolds and on the border of Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
