Thatched Cottages – magical historical and ecofriendly

Thatched properties, captured in many of the Brothers Grimm’s fairytales, certainly have an enchanting quality! Their unique roofing offers old-fashioned beauty as well as ecological advantages. Thatch’s versatility and flexible dimension requirements allows the use of sustainable, recyclable materials, and is a brilliant option for those searching for a ‘greener’ home. So whether looking to improve your eco-footprint, live in a piece of history, or recapture the magic of childhood fairytales, here are a few Beresfords’ best thatched options:


Cute and compact, this one bedroom cottage lies at the heart of the historic Boreham village. Dating back to the early 17th century, Caynton Cottage has wealth of charm and character, with lovely period features. A tasteful rear extension has created space for a modern kitchen and bathroom, while outside there’s a mature garden and ample parking.


High Easter

This four bedroom property in the picturesque village of High Easter is actually two farm cottages combined! Despite undergoing alterations the cottage has retained its original features remarkably well; with beautiful stone floors, beamed ceilings and walls, and two inglenook fireplaces. The enclosed rear gardens offer lots of privacy for relaxing in blissful tranquillity.


This attractive three bed cottage with detached garage is located on a quiet country lane in Rayne. Framed by green foliage and surrounded by a pretty garden it’s a perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The cottage is as charming inside as it is out, with beautiful exposed beams, brick fireplaces and wooden floors.
