We arrived at Thatchwood, and met Harry and Sally. On arrival, we were treated to some coffee and milk tart. Even though the weather did not play along, we had a great time. The staff were very friendly and the lodge is well looked after. Thanks for a great holiday Harry and Sally :)

Friendly, clean and homely accomodation. Best breakfast! Thank you Harrie, Sara and staff for an unforgettable stay! St Francis bay is the most beautiful little village and well worth a visit. We will definitely be back.

We stayed a couple of nights on our way to PE and were very happy with our room, the service and the friendliness of staff and owners alike. Thank you also for the recommendation to the Walskipper restaurant - an excellent last night meal.

Our breakfasts were great with a great choice. We golfed on the new St Francis Bay Links which is nearly walking distance... More

This is a lovely place to stay. The owners (Harry and Sara) are very friendly, helpful and caring and the staff were also friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed there in January 2014 with two friends and we will go back. The breakfasts were also very substantial and good, the rooms and bathrooms were lovely and clean.... More

Clean, relaxed and very friendly accommodation. The Hosts were accommodating and went out of their way to please during very busy times. Sara thanks for the fan. We found the holiday relaxing and the rooms are set amongst tranquil trees and borders on the golf course

My family and I checked into this beautiful little lodge with high expectations. And these were met every step of the way, Harry and Sara were very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were spic and span, spacious and had all the amenities. The lodge is right behind a golf estate and is a stones throw from the shops and beach.
