Owners Comments

"We have always thought of Thistledown as our oasis of calm and harmony away from the hustle and bustle of busy working lives. Thistledown has provided a peaceful rural setting to bring up our family where we are fortunate to be in the catchment area for Thomas Hardye School. Many warm summer evenings have been spent relaxing in the spacious mature garden or walking with the family and dogs around the many local country paths. Winter walks are especially enjoyable being followed by relaxing in front of the cosy log burner."
