This beautiful ‘chocolate box’ thatched cottage dates back to the 17th century and was once the village post office. A remnant of those days is the, now disused, red post box adorning the front of the property. The interior of Corner Thatch has many period features including exposed timberwork, slate tiled floors and brick fireplace with bread oven set above the gas effect wood burning stove. The master bedroom with en-suite occupies the first floor, while the second bedroom is conveniently located on the ground floor, also with en-suite shower room. Outside there is a lovely, south facing garden with paved patio and garden furniture for four, the perfect spot for outdoor dining.
Corner Thatch is situated in the idyllic village of Abbotts Morton where many of properties have retained the ‘black and white’ half-timbered charm. Abbotts Morton is one of the oldest and most picturesque villages in Worcestershire which has a wealth of history and is listed in the Doomsday Book. The nearby villages of Inkberrow, Flyford Flavell and Radford offer an excellent range of pubs and village stores as well as an award winning farm shop at Dunnington. Corner Thatch is in easy driving distance of both the Cotswold borders and Warwickshire borders, including Stratford-upon-Avon only 25 minutes’ drive away. The surrounding countryside provides numerous walks over footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes though scenic fields, woodlands and the Piddle Brook watercourse.
