Little Thatch is located in the quiet & peaceful conservation village of Seaton in England 's smallest county, Rutland. The traditional 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 several National Trust properties including Belton House & Woolsthorpe Manor are all 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 Thatch is the perfect sister property!
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.
However please be aware that by its very nature Little Thatch is a charming old cottage but the rooms (downstairs in particular) are fairly small....so at the risk of stating the obvious, if you are looking for large open plan spaces then Little Thatch is not the cottage for you!
We have made both our thatched holiday cottages extensions of our own home, positioned at the high end of the holiday let market. Guests comment very positively regarding how extremely well equipped & furnished they are....'more than just a holiday home'.
