Pink Thatch

Large country cottage in Wiltshire sleeping up to 15 guests. There’s a games room, covered hot tub and a big garden. Bath 30 mins, London 2 hours. 2 cots at no extra charge. Sorry, no pets.

Pink Thatch is a big country cottage that’s spacious yet homely and cosy with heaps of rural charm; interiors blend so well with the thick stone walls, flagstone floors, and centuries old beams. You’ll love it.

A big porch leads to the kitchen/dining room and to the sitting room. The kitchen/dining room is a lovely light and airy room with Shaker style units, an electric range cooker in a big stone fireplace, a long dining table for those celebration dinners, and bifold doors opening onto the terrace.

The sitting room is very welcoming; big comfy sofas, a low beamed ceiling, and a huge fireplace with a user-friendly wood-burning stove; take in a tray of tea and toast and gather round. Then there’s the games room where you can hang out and play pool, or sit in the window seat wool gathering. Also downstairs are two  bedrooms (1 double with an en suite shower room and 1 single) and a separate shower room.  

Pink Thatch has two staircases – go up from the games room to Bedrooms 3 and 4; Bedroom 4 has zip and link beds (king size or 2 x 2ft 6”), Bedroom 3 sleeps 4 in zip and link beds (super king or 2 x 3ft singles), a day bed and a pull out truckle bed; exposed rafters soar right up to the apex, a door leads through to the ultra stylish en suite shower room.

Step up to a dressing area and through to Bedroom 2, again, zip and link beds (king size or 2 x 2ft 6”) and an en suite shower room. Along the landing are stairs down to the kitchen and right at the end, is Bedroom 1. Floor to ceiling windows give views of the garden and the countryside beyond, and there’s snooze space for 4 - in zip and link beds (super king or twin) and 2 singles – plus there's a gorgeous en suite bathroom with a free standing bath and separate shower.

Outside the kids can run about on the lawn, you can picnic by the stream that runs along the boundary, or you might prefer to sit back in the hot tub listening to the birds twittering away and watch the cows grazing on the hillside. Dream days! Come and enjoy; book your stay at Pink Thatch today.
