After a warm welcome we enjoyed 2 nights with our family of 5 in this lovely place. Nicely decorated rooms with soft beds and extra heating in case it was colder at night. Very close to nice activities during the day (horseback riding, golf, beach, canoing...) Would really advice this accomodation.

We spent 2 nights at Thatchwood - not nearly long enough. We arrived on a cold and wet afternoon to be immediately offered some hot coffee, even before we'd been shown to our - gorgeous, beautifully appointed, room. Our hosts helped us choose a restaurant for that night - not an easy decision, as there were so many to choose...

My brother-in-law and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at this lovely lodge. We embraced the friendliness of the owners, the location, and our rooms were both very comfortable. Returning from dinner to a crackling fire was a highlight of the day. Staff were charming and very efficient. The breakfast was very enjoyable, overlooking the golf course.

A very friendly Steffie welcomed us with coffee and cake. The room she showed us was spacious and well equiped. Our room had a fridge, en suite bathroom and private terrace. So far we should have rated Thatchwood Country Lodge as a good average guesthouse. But it is when you get in trouble that one can discover the extra quality...

Arriving after a long drive, we were invited to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea, even before we had checked in! And then we were served a complimentary slice of milk tart each. What a lovely welcome! The room was great but because there was a vacancy we were upgraded to a luxury room with an enormous bathroom....

One night stopover but would like to have stayed longer. Lovely thatched cottages, friendly and helpful staff. Room good but let down by the shower facilities, rather cramped under the eaves of the bathroom. Excellent breakfast in pleasant surroundings.
