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 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 a 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 an 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 the buildings retain 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 and Warwickshire borders, including Stratford-upon-Avon only a 25 minute drive away. The surrounding countryside provides numerous walks over footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes though scenic fields, woodlands and the Piddle Brook watercourse.

"We stayed three nights and I cannot recommend the place highly enough. It had everything we needed for a short stay, the car park was very close and the views were of the rolling Devonish countryside. We were literally less than 5 minutes drive from 2 Supermarkets and the Park & Ride for Dartmouth. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook as well as a small selection of helpful key essentials (tea, coffee, cooking oil, salt/ pepper, washing liquid, etc. As a family we like to explore and stay somewhere different. In this case we'd make an exception."
"Brilliant location, lovely out door space for kids to play, spotless chalet would definitely go again!"
