I booked the Wizardry as a surprise for my husband's birthday after reading so many positive reviews about the place. And it genuinely didn't disappoint. Words cannot do this location justice - it really must be seen to be believed.

At first it appears as if you are walking through the very heart of a tree but then a 400 year old cottage appears. The clank of an old shop doorbell rings and you are presented with a large room which was described by my 8yr old son... More

We stayed at the Wizards Thatch to celebrate our 1st anniversary on 19th. July. This place is just stunning and the attention to detail amazing. We stayed in the Camelot suite and particularly liked the fabulous four poster bed. We felt that it would be a waste to stay there and not spend the maximum time possible in the accommodation....
