Time stands still in this cosy cottage with wood burner and low beams
About Jane Scott
Jane and Ian came to live at Little Thatch twenty years ago and painstakingly renovated the property employing their joint skills as an artist and a carpenter. Then a few years later they moved into the adjoining cottage and renovated that one too, along with creating a beautiful cottage garden than is open to the public one weekend a year and was selected to be in the prestigious NGS Yellow Book. They have a studio in the garden where they have a small picture framing business where they do bespoke framing, conservation and restoration of oil paintings and frames. They share their home with two dogs and a cat who enjoy the attention of the holidaymakers next door and are always happy to go for a long walk!
Jane Scott purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Jane Scott chose Lillingstone Lovell
As soon as they saw the chocolate box cottage with roses around the door and a stream outside in the conservation village of Lillingstone Lovell they fell in love with it and it became a dream come true when they were able to buy the cottage next door

Peaceful get away
Jane and Ian fabulous hosts. Beautiful chocolate box cottage and gardens. So cosy especially when the fire was lite. Everything you need is in the cottage and a lovely touch of a welcome basket. Only problem I had was the bathroom downstairs.
Little Thatch is beautiful, everything was catered for including a lovely welcome basket. The cottage garden was amazing, watching the birds flying between the trees was great.
Absolutely amazing cottage and hosts
The property exceeded our expectation. Cannot say enough. From the extensive welcome breakfast basket and bottle of wine, to the enthusiastic welcome from the puppies, everything was amazing. We have already booked for next year. Sitting out in the beautiful garden, listening to the fountain and the birds, drinking a glass of wine - just heavenly!!! Thank you so much Jane and Ian.
It was lovely to meet you and enjoy your delight in the cottage. I cannot wait until next year when you are coming for twice as long!

Less than an hour by train from London, equidistant to both the M1 and M40 and only 60 miles from Heathrow, it is ideally situated for visitors from UK or abroad.
Close to the Cotswolds and on the border of North Bucks and Northamptonshire and only a few miles from Oxfordshire it is in the heart of the Shires with beautiful rolling countryside, pretty villages with country pubs, Many National Trust properties and Stowe close by. Lonly area for walking with ancient forests full of bluebells a few miles away or tow path walks along the Grand Union canal.
Silverstone race track is very close as is Towcester for horse and greyhound racing.
The next village of Whittlebury has a championship golf course or a spa for a bit of pampering.
If you want a bit of serious shopping then Bicester Outlet Village and Milton Keynes are near by.
Something for everyone and the owner lives next door and will give you lots of ideas.
