What our clients say


I found Tom Barclay extremely helpful and professional. Very glad to be dealing with Playle Russell.

(Ms S Deane)


Really great service by Tom Barclay. Very quick quote and excellent price for my specialist enquiry. Thank you!

(Ms S Ford)


We have a GII thatched cob / chalk block / rubble and brick built cottage in Dorset. Having had the run around with various well known firms (saying they could not cover for variety of reasons and or wanting to charge an extortionate amount) we found Tom Barclay at Thatchline / Playle Russell extremely competitive, professional, efficient and an all round pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend!
