Dodson Bros Thatchers Ltd: Thatched Roofing for the UK

Although a small family run business in Cambridgeshire, we are one of the largest thatched roofing companies in the country. It was founded in 1920 and is now in its third generation. We have a reputation for providing a friendly and professional thatching service. Customer satisfaction is a priority and every effort is made to involve and keep the customer informed throughout the process of having their house thatched.

We are members of the National Society of Master Thatchers and the East Midlands Master Thatchers Association. We have worked locally, nationally and internationally.

We are Master Thatchers providing a quality thatching service in and around Peterborough and Cambridge and the surrounding counties.

We are the current holders of the National Society of Master Thatchers ‘Best Thatched House Award’ which we have also won on four other separate occasions.

We have thatched such renowned houses as Enid Blyton’s in Bourne End and Queen Charlottes cottage in Kew Gardens as well as properties owned by the National Trust, Church of England and major breweries. We always endeavour to achieve a high standard at a reasonable and fair price.
