“A True Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed in this beautiful thatched cottage and loved every minute of it. Martin and Julia were very hospitable, and the cottage was so cosy. The village has a great pub a short stroll away serving home cooked delicious meals. It was an ideal place to explore this lovely county.
Thanks to Martin and Julia for sharing this magical cottage and we most certainly will return.

“BRAVO ! !”
Reviewed 14 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This perfect Hobbit Thatch is oozing with charm in every room and corner. Four of us slept, dined and relaxed in ultimate bliss. While remaining true to the charm of an historic cottage, this little gem sparkled: the entire house has been scrupulously remodeled to a high level. The kitchen and bathrooms are gleaming with the latest in appliances and fixtures with a tasteful pairing between historic cottage ambiance and modern convenience. Nestled in Seaton, Rutland County we were steps from the village church and the George and Dragon Pub. A quick walk from the house opens up to endless vistas of blooming canola, grain fields, hedgerows and flowers blooming everywhere. Market towns, a dozen villages and the Rutland reservoir are close by. This California family was pleased with this perfect find for accommodations in the UK. We will be back. Thank you Copemans for sharing your jewel with us.

“Everything you could wish for!”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned home from a week stay at Little Thatch. Cosy lounge, well-equipped kitchen, clean bathroom and very comfortable beds. Martin and Julia have provided with everything you could possibly need during your stay and more. Compliments on very tasteful furnishings and cleanliness throughout. Little Thatch is very homely and certainly worthy of 5* grading. Delicious cake on arrival was a very welcome sight. Excellent choice of DVD's, books and board games. The cottage is ideally situated for touring friendly Rutland and surrounding counties. Hope to return soon. Well done Martin and Julia.
