More than grateful for this amazing time with the Thatched family! The staff is wonderful and shifts are fun with the youth energy of the guys. The hotel is gorgeous and is surrounded by nature. I made so many trails I won't forget! You manage your own meals, that gives you more freedom to choose, specially if you like to cook -and the kitchen has everything you may need-. Thanks for everyone (Matthew, David, Paul, Huw, Jak, Luke, Callum and Callum and I can continue forever ❤

Thatched Cottage Hotel was my first volunteer experience, and I’m so glad I chose this place. The staff is very welcoming, my first week I already felt like I belonged there. I appreciate Matthew for giving me this opportunity, and the whole staff for taking such good care of me.

Very pleasant welcome from Matthew and all his staff. I was immediately well integrated. The work is quite varied and not too complicated. Young and dynamic team. The managers are very friendly and honest. In the days off you can easily visit the English countryside and the seaside resorts. Many thanks for everything

I had a great time at the Thatched Cottage hotel. I had the opportunity to meet locals, learn about hospitality and housekeeping and breathe the fresh and pure air of New Forest. Brockenhurst is a beautiful village with lots of friendly people who made me feel home. So if if you are a traveller looking forward to improving your English with locals and be close to nature in the English countryside, the Thatched Cottage is the right place to be!

I should stay for 2 months but I had to leave after 3 weeks because I had a personal problem. The tasks at the Hotel are easy and you have time to enjoy Brokenhurst. Sometimes the voluunteers has to clean the owner`s house on Sundays as well. The city is very beaufitul with a lot of poneis, horses and cows around. Sometimes I felt in paradise. I had my own room with a shared bathroom, and Matthew gives money to buy food. All the Hotel looks cute, if you like quiet and peaceful places close to the nature, it`s the best place to relax and enjoy your time.
