Home of the week from The Property Centre: The Old Thatch, Frampton-on-Severn


The Old Thatch is a very pretty, prominent, and unique Grade Two listed cottage, dating back to the 1500s.

Located in the highly sought-after village of Frampton-on-Severn on the edge of the Cotswolds, the cottage is one of five buildings in the village of historical significance as it survived the “Great Storms” of 1700, and is currently on the market with The Property Centre for £650,000.

The property underwent a major refurbishment in 1993. This included repairs to the structure and a new extension to the rear of the property. In addition, it had all new electrics, plumbing, staircases and windows.

The Thatch was replaced in 2013 and the roofs to the porch and rear extension were replaced in 2016 and 2019 respectively. The property had a new kitchen and shower room in 2016, and a new damp course in July 2021.

The property benefits from three entrances – two to the front and one entrance to the rear. It has two reception rooms as well as a kitchen, utility room, shower room, and three double bedrooms (one en-suite). The interior has original exposed oak beams throughout.

The first entrance enters into the dining room, with a staircase off to the right which leads up to a first-floor mezzanine bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.

The second entrance enters through a porch and leads directly into the Kitchen / Diner. The door to the left of the porch entrance leads into a beautiful living room with exposed beams and a large, original Inglenook fireplace with a log-burner fire.

The door to the right of the porch leads into a new extension at the back of the cottage. This contains a fully fitted utility room along with a shower room with a WC and hand basin.

The main double bedroom has two built-in cupboards used as wardrobes / storage. The rear double bedroom overlooks the garden and has magnificent views down to the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal, further to the Severn Estuary, and across to Wales.

There are gardens to the front, one-side and rear, with a gravel driveway down the remaining side that can accommodate 3 to 4 vehicles. The rear garden contains a very private courtyard, with lawn and extensive shrubs as well as a 4m pond.


Frampton on Severn is reputed to have one of the longest village greens in England (22 Acres in size), with several ponds along its length and a cricket pavilion. The village lies in a conservation area, close to the Gloucester and Sharpness canal, and within a few miles of the Slimbridge Wetlands Wildlife Sanctuary. 

The cottage is within walking distance of the thriving local amenities, which include two Village Pubs, a Post Office, a Tea Room, a Doctors Surgery and local schools.
