About Hope Thatch

Hope Thatch is the quintessential thatched country cottage, dating back to 1650, making it the oldest house in the South Devon village of Malborough. The property is grade II listed and has recently been refurbished and extended to provide comfortable and cosy accommodation in the original part of the house, together with an architecturally designed extension to house a beautiful new kitchen, cloakroom and bathroom.  As you might expect the property boasts a wealth of original features, including exposed beams and a slate fireplace – now housing a fabulous log burning stove, great to cosy-up to in the winter. The original house links to the extension via a glass walled corridor to a kitchen complete with ‘wall-of-glass’ bi-fold door arrangement which allows the whole room to be opened up into the garden.  The kitchen comes  with an Aga Rayburn, an American-style fridge freezer, granite worktops and the whole extension is heated with under-floor heating.

The property has its own rear garden, complete with a patio and garden furniture for al fresco dining. There are two steps off an enclosed courtyard into an enclosed lobby. From there you enter the lounge and dining areas, complete with feature fireplace and beamed ceilings, much of the furniture is now solid French Oak.  There is a dining and seating area (including a sofa bed for additional guests), then into the corridor for access to the kitchen and cloakroom. From the stairs there is the bathroom, rebuilt entirely as part of the new zinc roofed extension in 2014 and upstairs there are three bedrooms, a double, a twin and a single.

The property rental includes the following;

Parking normally available on road immediately outside the cottage garden. In any case there is always parking available at the village hall which is within 50 yards.
