Little thatch is located in the quiet & peaceful conservation village of seaton in England 's smallest county, Rutland. The traditinal village pub, The George & Dragon, is within a 2 minute walk and is opposite the beautiful All Hallows Church.

Rutland water, along with the surrounding countryside and villages, provide a beautiful back drop for sailing, water sports, fishing, cycling, bird watching, golf and walking.

Traditional country pubs offer excellent cuisine, stately homes such as belvoir castle, rockigham castle, magnificent burghley house (home of the famous burghley horse trials) and national trust properties including belton house are within a short drive, whilst shopping tends to be 'unique and antique' and a pleasurable world away from the shopping centre chains. Geoff Hamilton's legacy of his famous Barnsdale Gardens are close by.

Little Thatch, owing to its charming nature with low ceilings, tiny staircases and nooks & crannies, is perfect for hobbits! If you don't happen to be of similar stature to Bilbo Baggins then be prepared to 'duck or grouse'!

Having refurbished our original sister Grade II Listed Thatched Cottage, Sticky End, in nearby Cottesmore & taken bookings since 1996, we have constantly had excellent feedback from guests & repeat bookings.

Now Little Thacth is the perfect sister property!

Martin & Julia Copeman purchased this cottage in 2013

Rutland is truely an unspoiled little gem of a county. Multum in Parvo', the motto of the County of Rutland translates from Latin as 'Much in Little'... the same is true of both Sticky End & Little Thatch.

EXCELLENT & FIRST CLASS PROPERTY, HOME FROM HOME.

Excellent & first class property, home from home.
  • 5 out of 5
Having used several SC, B&B, Hotels etc. this was one of the best, and as we were the first booking, with everything we required to make our stay very enjoyable being provided, and as it was the festive period the seasonal additions were much appreciated. The refurbishment of Little Thatch and garden also being excellent.
Located in the quiet Village of Seaton it was only a short walk to the very friendly Pub serving enjoyable food, also for children there was a play area nearby. Within the locality are several eating establishments from the garden centre at Cold Overton to the George at Stamford (coffee & cake £20) and Uppingham a short drive away, Oakham slightly further.

RUTLAND & SURROUNDING AREAS

Seaton is situated in the East Midlands county of Rutland, a small but beautiful and unsung area just waiting to be discovered. Nestling in Middle England, one hundred miles north of London, it is bounded on the west and north by

Leicestershire, northeast by Lincolnshire, and southeast by Northamptonshire.

The historic town of Stamford (Sunday Times 'Best Place to Live' 2013) is just over the border in a protruding part of Lincolnshire.

Little Thatch (& sister property Sticky End, in Cottesmore, to the north of Rutland Water) therefore makes a perfect base from which to explore the immediate area, as well as treasures such as Cambridge and Lincoln plus major cities such as Nottingham, Leicester and Peterborough, all of which are within a 60 minute drive.

Rutland 's greatest length north to south is only 18 miles; greatest breadth east to west, 17 miles. It is the smallest (in terms of area) normal unitary authority in mainland England (only the City of London is smaller!).

The two principal towns are Oakham, the county town, and Uppingham, whilst there are many quintessentially English villages to be enjoyed.

At the centre of the county is a vast and picturesque reservoir, Rutland Water, which is an important nature reserve, serving as an over-wintering site for wildfowl and a breeding site for Ospreys. Rutland Water is one of the largest man-made reservoirs in Europe , covering some 1225 hectares (3100 acres). Completed in 1977, the reservoir is in the centre of Rutland and has a 25-mile circular track for walking and cycling.

Oakham and Uppingham are charming market towns, famous for their public schools. Oakham hosts its own summer festival. Melton Mowbray including its renowned Pork Pie shop lies just to the north of the county.

Rutland Water, known as the 'Playground of the East Midlands', has something for everyone including the Rutalnd Belle pleasure cruise, Sailing, Canoeing, Kayaking, Windsurfing, a Rock Block with tree top high ropes, Cycling, an Interactive Visiors Centre, Anglian Water Bird Watching Centre at Eggleton, Lyndon Nature Reserve & Visitor Centre (with Rutland Osprey Centre), Fly Fishing (incl lessons), Walking, Golf, Mini- Golf, Childrens' Adventure Playgrounds plus ample Picnic opportunities.

Stamford is a beautiful historic town with marvellous shops and on its outskirts boasts the jewel of Burghley House home to the annual Burghley Horse Trials and a popular location for filming.

The Stamford Shakespeare Festival (June- September) is held annually at Tolethorpe Hall where a picnic on the lawns, a stroll around the lawn, pond and flowerbeds and shrubberies all add to the magic of a visit to Rutland Open Air Theatre.

Rockingham Motor Speedway and Rockingham Castle lie just to the south of Rutland. The Stunning Belvoir Castle stands splendidly in the Vale of Belvoir just a short drive to the north.

There are several golf courses within a short drive of each cottage, including Luffenham Heath & Greetham Valley.

Richard III: In the summer of 2012, archaeologists from the University of Leicester, working with Leicester City Council and the Richard III Society, unearthed the ruins of the lost medieval Grey Friars church and within the ruins, the grave of a battle-scarred warrior. Until Spring 2014, The Guildhall, in the shadow of Leicester Cathedral, hosts a major exhibition telling the story of King Richard III, his life and times and the search for his lost remains. From nearby Oakham, Little Thatch guests can catch a direct train into Leicester city centre, or indeed drive in approximately 40 minutes.
