Conserving our tradition and heritage
Country Crafts Master Thatchers offers a fully comprehensive thatching service covering the South West, where demand and reputation has enabled us to work throughout the country. We are proud members of the Somerset Master Thatcher's Association.
There are an estimated 80,000 thatched buildings in Britain today, around 24,000 of which are listed, and some of which retain thatch over 600 years old. Thatching reflects strong vernacular traditions all over the country. Thatched buildings need to be properly maintained to preserve our heritage in style, regional variation and materials.
With a profound interest for the craftsmanship of the past we aim to reflect this passion into each and every project we undertake. Our service offers a unique and in-depth source of knowledge and results in exceptional customer service and satisfaction.
The use of thatch largely contributes towards the effort to use renewable and sustainable building materials, and is increasingly being acknowledged for new housing. It is warming to say that our craft is no longer seen as a relic of the past.
