Access Statement

This access statement does not contain personal opinions as to our suitability for those with access needs, but aims to accurately describe the facilities and services that we offer all our guests/visitors.


Little Thatch is an ideal haven for relaxation with secluded garden, the beach and town centre only a 5 minute walk away.
Little Thatch sleeps up to 6 people and has 3 bedrooms, one being on the ground floor with an adjacent wet room that can be used as an en suite if desired. The bedroom and wet room has a step free and level entry.
The cottage was built in circa 17th Century but has been fully refurbished to make your stay as comfortable as possible. As such the existing stair case is narrow and would cause negotiating problems for people with greater accessibility requirements.
We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01243 211102 or email [email protected]
