Like many tourism businesses, we’ve been closed since the 23rd March and it’s fair to say that during this time, there have been plenty of challenges along the way for us all. However, following the latest Government announcements, we are really pleased to share some good news with you; and are hopeful that Thatches will be able to reopen those gates and welcome you in again from the 4th of July, if not before!
We are, of course, fully aware that the date is conditional and subject to change, but we are keeping fingers and toes crossed that it will be soon be deemed reasonable and safe to return to your, “Happy Place”.
We have been busy, behind the scenes not only maintaining and keeping Thatches looking great; but also deep cleaning, preparing and introducing new measures, which will ensure that, when we receive the go ahead, we will be ready and waiting to open, still providing laid back luxury, but with a few tweaks to ensure safety during what remains such unprecedented times.

As a haven of tranquility, with the benefits of being both a countryside and coastal retreat, as second home and holiday destinations go, you probably couldn’t be in a much better place. A recent tweet, which basically sums us up, stated; “lodge parks, such as Thatches are socially distanced by design“, so true and which may hopefully help us to open our doors earlier.

Although time at Thatches can be spent in total isolation, within your garden, relaxing on deck or in your lodge, it’s also nice to get and about on the park, so we have worked with good old Mother Nature and created some beautiful, natural, meadow grass and wildflower banks, in our communal area to ensure everyone can easily enjoy keeping their distance.

Thatches owners and guests are by nature, sensitive to the environment, we know this because you’ve helped us maintain David Bellamy Gold for over 10 years, joined us in hedge row and beach cleans, inspired us with waste reducing and environmentally friendly ideas and have now stood beside us every step of the way, in doing all we can to make sure that the community we love so much remains protected.

At the moment “Getting the balance right”, is a statement we hear time and time again, so with this in mind, we are also busy contacting some of our lovely local restaurants, hostelries, butchers, bakers (no not candlestick makers) but other independent retailers. So, by the time we open, hopefully, we will have established a great selection of local delivery and take out options, which in turn will also help keep footfall to a minimum in busy places, whilst also providing financial and moral support to local businesses - we are after all, all in this together.

Thank you, so very much, for your uncompromising support and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Gilly, Andrew, Chris and the team at Thatches
