Set in spacious surroundings within the tranquil and secure equestrian suburb of Beaulieu Country Estate you will find Thatch and Thorn, a 4-star private, bed and breakfast style guesthouse. Four charming suites open onto either an individual deck or patio from which guests can stroll out into the spacious, leafy garden. This is home to an amazing variety of indigenous birds or you may watch the contented munching of horses in the paddocks close by. Breakfast caters for everyone’s taste, served on the main patio overlooking the pool and garden whilst dinners can be arranged on request.
