Welcome to Grant Batchelor Master Thatcher

Grant Batchelor is a well established Master Thatcher in Oxfordshire and aims to provide expert thatching services, including complete roof thatch, re-ridging, as well as thatch surveys, and thatch maintenance. Covering thatched cottages across Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Buckinghamshire and Gloucestershire.

Thatched roofs have covered British homes for centuries. This age-old craft symbolises our rich cultural heritage and contrary to popular belief, the traditional master thatcher job role continues to thrive.

The performance of thatch depends on roof shape and design, pitch of roof, position — its geography and topography — the quality of material and the expertise of the Thatcher.

Maintaining a thatched property can be costly, but I strive to offer the best possible price without sacrificing quality, in order to keep the beautiful art of traditional roof thatching alive.
