Welcome to Thatch End Cottage…….
Thatch End Cottage is a part-thatched cottage dating, in parts, back to the 17th Century, once being part of the nearby Chatsworth Estate. Despite its cottage appearance, it offers surprisingly spacious accommodation for up to 10 people (including occasional beds).
Having been in the same family from when it was originally purchased from Chatsworth, it has been sympathetically refurbished.
Wherever possible, original features have been exposed or reinstated which have been integrated with the needs of modern living.
Entrance to the property is off a private footpath, which leads to Chatsworth House (1 mile) A large Hallway has ample space for coats and shoes to be stored away from the living areas. Both reception rooms are front facing onto the path and river.
Off the hallway is a large Dining Room which has a log burner for those winter evenings. During the summer, the french doors give access to the enclosed garden. The dining room leads directly into the kitchen.
Thatch End Kitchen is small but perfectly formed. The open entrance to the Dining Room gives the chef opportunity for interaction with the diners, whilst keeping all of the mess away from the table! The kitchen is well equipped with a 5 ring gas hob, electric fan oven, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and fridge freezer.
From the kitchen and the hallway there is access to spacious Lounge. This has a large fireplace ( currently decorative due to Thatched Roof above) TV (Freview channels) , DVD player and audio system.
Upstairs a landing gives access to:
The Bathroom is a full family bathroom with Bath, over bath shower, basin and W.C.
Shower room which is a generous size with shower, W.C. and Basin.
Bedroom 1 is a large but cosy room in the thatched section of the house and has a double bed, drawer storage and a wardrobe. There is ample room for extra beds (1 or 2) if a family room is required. The front window overlooks the river.
Bedroom 3 This is a smaller room offering sleeping accommodation for 3 in the form of a triple sleeper bunk- double on the bottom, single on the top. This cosy, practical room also has views over the river, and is ideal for a couple with a small child, children or groups who are looking for a cosy bed rather than the luxury that Bedrooms 1 and 2 offer.
Other amenities: Travel cot, high chair.
Outside there is a gated Parking Space (also additional parking for one on the lane) Further parking can be found for a small charge at the village car park which is a minutes walk away. There is a small lawned area, ample space for outdoor entertaining, BBQ and Outdoor Furniture.
