A lovely place to stay and at this time of year made even more wonderful by the magic of the Spring sunshine. Very friendly proprietor , beautifully clean and marvellously inspirational. For me I stay here on business trips ... why stay in a hotel when you can stay somewhere unique and full of character.

Once again we booked the Camelot suite at the Wizard's Thatch to take a weekend away and visit family, accompanied by our two dogs. It was as welcoming as always and a peaceful, pleasant place to spend a long weekend. Whenever we are in this neck of the woods, this is our preferred place to stay. Highly recommended.

Comfortable, relaxing & a real home from home....

What a fabulous place the Wizard's Thatch is. We stayed in The Wizardry and absolutely love the place. It is hard to describe but it is completely unique, quirky and full to the brim of unusual artifacts, books, antiques - you could spend a week in there and not see everything. It really is like having your own Hobbit house...

We stopped in the Wizardry Suite and couldn't fault it (although beware the door and beam heights!!). There are plenty of adjectives to describe it - quaint, cosy, quirky, romantic, homely, fun, different, warm, colourful, interesting, relaxing - all of these and more are not quite sufficient to describe the Wizard's Thatch. It is just a beautiful and special little...

I took my mum to Wizards Thatch for a Mother's Day with a difference and it definately didn't fail to impress! We stayed in the beautiful Wizardry Suite. As soon as you walk in you're transferred to a different world. There are all kinds of memorabilia and nick nacks to explore and there's always something new that you have failed...

I have stayed in the Merlin suite twice now and have had an excellent experience both times. The suite is very unique and fun. Wifi had no issues and there is a comfortable desk in the main area. It is a quiet atmosphere. There are some great restaurants and pubs a 5 minute walk away as well as a grocery...

We had a lovely mid-week stay here. The cottage is amazing, we stayed in the Wizardry and found we had everything we could possibly need and more! Location is perfect too, lots to see and do in the area and some lovely restaurants literally on the doorstep. Ian was very welcoming, obliging and informative. Will definitely stay again - Thank...
