It is not to scale and is intended to show the approximate relationship of one room to another, with an indication of the main fixtures and fittings.

Welford on Avon lies on the banks of the River Avon, on the borders of Shakespeare country, the north Cotswolds and the Vale of Evesham. It is well placed for access to the major Midland towns of Coventry, Birmingham, Redditch and Leamington Spa, as well as having good rail links with London from nearby Honeybourne. Its population has doubled during the last twenty years, but careful planning has kept the village comparatively unspoilt, which is a major factor in its considerable popularity as a residential location.
Day to day shopping can be carried out in the village, which has one general store, butcher, three public houses, as well as a primary school and Church. The village is well served to local needs and is only four miles south west of Stratford upon Avon. In addition, Junction 15 of the M40 motorway is about ten miles away and the NEC, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are all within comfortable driving distance.

Low Thatch comprises a superbly situated substantial property comprising an original Grade II listed timber-framed and thatched portion of the property visible from the driveway to the front of the property and having undergone subsequent extension to the rear, understood to have been completed in the 1960's. The resulting spacious accommodation includes glazed entrance hallway, delightful split level sitting/living room with exposed stone and timber work, dining room and good-sized kitchen/breakfast room continuing to a conservatory overlooking the rear garden. To the first floor, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
