About Us

Since taking on our first thatched holiday cottage in Rutland, Grade II listed Sticky End in Cottesmore, Martin and Julia have been successfully welcoming guests since 2006.

In December 2013, we were proud to announce that Sticky End had a perfect sister property, Little Thatch a quintessential 'chocolate box' 3 bedroom thatched cottage with a charming south-facing cottage garden, located in the tranquil village of Seaton (Uppingham, 3 miles) just to the south of Rutland Water.

Rutland is truly an unspoiled little gem of a county. 'Multum in Parvo', the apt motto of the County of Rutland translates from Latin as 'Much in Little', in fact, the same is true of both of our cottages, Sticky End and Little Thatch.

We have made both our thatched holiday cottages 'extensions of our own home', positioned at the high end of the holiday let market. Guests always comment very positively regarding how extremely well equipped & furnished they are......"more than just a holiday home'".
