    Great location with a short walk to the restaurants ,supermarkets and pubs. Well equipped with off road parking very useful. Second bedroom is a bit tight but overall a cosy cottage for four

    The cottage was beautiful and the location was perfect. It was also lovely to receive the welcome gifts, our daughter loved the cookies! The owner also went out of her way to send information of child friendly things to do nearby,our daughter loved the splash pool so thank you ! The only downside was the noisey busy road outside as the traffic can be heard inside, particularly at night time.

    Cottage quaint and comfortable and close to shops, river and children's play park. Road noise a bit bothersome at night. Garden dog friendly but not inviting as a social or relaxing area. Overall, good choice for our week stay.

    Very disapponited, the location well its the busy road outside and parking onto and out of the drive.And I mean busy 24/7. A restful peaceful holiday it is not. The garden is untidy and I see has been reported before. Inside the cottage the shower just runs hot no temperature control did not use it because of this. When was the last time someone had a look at the old freezer it was just dirty, storage drawers broken it was kept in the back of the garage also untidy. And the sofa cushions are worn out need replacing. Feel the write up on this cottage to be misleading and owners should be asked to make improvements. New freezer and new shower would be a start.

    The Old Thatch is a lovely warm, cosy and well equipped cottage. Great location, just a short stroll away from the river and the centre, and we were provided with so much information. The owner was extremely helpful too. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay in the cottage again. We have already recommended to friends and family.
