(formerly The White Cottage)
This thached cottage has a wonderful little brook
to the rear and is located about 5 minutes by foot from Anne Hathaway's Cottage.
The building dates back to the 17th Century,
albeit there have been additions since giving it a more modern look.
The thatch is described as being a 'hipped thatched roof'.
