My wife and I spent a weekend here with our dog and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and provided us with a basket of goodies including a wonderfully fragrant home made loaf. The cottage was well furnished with oak beams galore, big comfy sofas and a lovely soft bed.
And had the weather turned bad, there were lots of dvds, games and books available .Fortunately the weather was lovely and so we were able to enjoy the beautiful views from the front of the cottage and also take several pleasant strolls to the local village and its pub.
The cottage is ideally located for exploring the beautiful countryside of Herefordshire and the border country with Ross on Wye, Monmouth and Symonds Yat all nearby.
If I had to nitpick, the only downside if anything to the location is the narrow lanes you need to travel down to get to the cottage. For the most part we were ok but we did struggle once when a large coach came the other way! All in all though the cottage and location were ideal and we would recommend Thatch Close Cottages to anyone looking to stay in this area.
We recently had the absolute pleasure of staying at this wonderful, family run, holiday cottage. The thatch close cottage was absolutely beautiful and clean with wonderful views and was fully adapted for people living with disabilities. This is an amazing feature as it was possible to enjoy a family holiday with no complications, with a home from home experience. Edward and Marian where available if ever needed and were the most wonderful, kind hearted people making us feel so welcome with friendly conversations and amazing stories. They provided brilliant information about the area and were very approachable, great with the children and sensitive and understanding to my husband with his disabilities.
We were very lucky to be picked at ballot for the week long stay which Edward and Marion generously donated to help for heroes, for injured veterans and We understand that they have also provided free stays for other Help for Heroes, a Para-Olympic medalist, and a few other good causes.
We will most definitely like to return and highly recommend it as a peaceful place for some respite and relaxation.
We stayed at the Cider Cottage at Thatch Close for 5 nights for my birthday. My husband and I wanted to do some walking with our dog in a bit of the country we'd not spent much time in. Found Thatch Close through Premiere Cottages and booked straight away because it looked absolutely lovely and it was in a perfect area with easy access to lots of nice dog walks. Plus, if you go to their actual website, thatchclosecottages.co.uk, you can see a 3D tour of each cottage. This was great to really get a feel for the home, much more thorough than a few standard pictures like most sites.
We were going to be arriving quite late, but Edward and Marian were very accommodating. Although it's listed as self-catering, when we arrived, we were greeted with a lovely basket of goodies, including fresh baked bread, oatbakes, biscuits, even tea, milk, and butter so we didn't have to worry about shopping straight away. They even gave us a basket of goodies for our dog, including a bed, blanket, and treats! The cottage was well-stocked and Edward and Marian made us feel very welcome, insisting that if we needed anything it wasn't a problem. Marian even brought over the newspaper because she'd seen a gorgeous walk in it for us to go on.
We had an amazing week and really enjoyed ourselves. It was the perfect getaway. I can't speak highly enough about our time there and I'm sure we will be returning to stay at Thatch Close again soon. We've already discussed booking all three cottages together with some friends!
