"We have just had a new ridge completed by John Harman and his team and we couldn't be more pleased with how it has turned out. Despite some atrocious weather, the whole job was done on schedule and bang on the quoted cost. John Harman was the obvious choice for us as he had done work on our thatch some years ago. The ridge has been done in a style typical of our local area and really suits the house. Johns team were totally professional, informative, courteous and friendly. The younger member of the team, Anton is a thatching star...methodical and meticulous, extremely proud of the work he has done for us, and rightly so. We have no hesitation in recommending John Harmon and his team to anyone who, like us, really appreciate genuine traditional craftsmanship."

Mr & Mrs Foster Bishops Caundle


We are very pleased with Mr Harman’s work. He has now thatched both sides of our roof; work carried out on two separate occasions. He and his back office are most efficient. His employees are timely, courteous and clean up after each day’s work. I would definitely recommend their work.

Mr H, Monkton Deverill, Warminster


"Tony and Edd worked very hard and have done a wonderful job. Very reliable and honest. Hopefully we have a solid roof that will last for 30+ years, thanks to yourselves and your skills. The thatch is a standing recommendation for anyone to see.

Mr & Mrs F, West Lulworth, Dorset


"Having your thatch replaced is a big deal. Its something you do rarely, it’s expensive and you have to live with the result for two decades. John Harman and the team will put you at ease on all these things. Doing business is a pleasure, the quote process is straightforward and an agreement can be effortlessly achieved. John is rightly confident in his company’s work and will not hesitate to provide reference customers, where good, honest reviews can be heard. On-site, the thatchers are superbly skilled, efficient, tidy and importantly, thoroughly decent people. The result is beautiful and a delight.

Mr U.J


Very pleased with an honest appraisal of what was required, this meant that we didn’t have to replace the entire roof. A fantastic job done by a considerate, efficient and courteous thatching team.

Mrs H, Winterborne Kingston, Blandford Forum


"We bought our thatched cottage ten years ago and for some time have known that we had to get it re-thatched. We gathered many quotes and landed on yours as a company who were the most friendly and answered our many questions on how and why in the most clear way. Throughout the project we always knew you were in charge and in control of us and all the men and boys on ladders and that gave us a very comfortable feeling. Everyone on site was well mannered and the constant clearing up was a daily job for you all. We are delighted with our new good looking house and it’s new warmth inside! We would happily recommend you."
