Thatch Cottage at Calke Abbey

A view of the exterior of Thatch Cottage

This cottage is thought to date from the late 17th Century when it was three cottages. It was extended and made into two cottages in the early 18th Century and finally became one in 1986. Located on the edge of the Calke Abbey Estate it is ideal if you want to explore during the day or out of hours once the visitors have gone home. The property also provides a perfect base for exploring the surrounding countryside, historic market towns and country houses. Thatch Cottage can sleep six people and one dog.
