Thatch Cottage Present
Dear Raymond / Cuckoos Garden

I received my Tudor Birdhouse yesterday and I am delighted with it, my friends and I think is absolutely fabulous and of the highest quality, we have seen nothing like it over here and especially at such a keen price, of course sterling makes it even better. I would not have thought that I would be purchasing the best quality Tudor Birdhouse outside the U.K. The ground pegs you provided makes it easy to secure the Tudor Birdhouse to the ground and to move it when mowing the lawn. It was a pleasure shopping with you and I will recommend you to many of my friends, I am confident they will be purchasing some Birdhouses from you if not the Tudor Birdhouse there are many more to choose from, you will be hearing from me again.

Sincerely yours

My Thatch Cottage Present
Hi Raymond,

Irish Thatch Cottage
Irish Thatch Cottage ” The Heart and Home of Ireland”

We would like to sincerely thank you for your recent assistance in creating a unique memorial for a very important person to us.

Please feel free to share our review:

In Mid-November, we stumbled across Cuckoo’s Garden website when we were online looking for a birdhouse as a present for Christmas. We decided on the thatched cottage. We visited the workshop where Raymond was extremely helpful. We joked when leaving, that we would probably be back at some stage but little did we realise that we would be calling within two days. We went online to give a review when we noticed a previous review where Raymond had mounted a plaque inside one of the houses for a customer. This gave us an idea.

We wanted to create a unique and distinctive memorial for a person very special to us. A birdhouse was perfect. For personal significance we again chose the thatched cottage. With Raymond’s guidance on size we went about researching and sourcing a plaque. Unfortunately the options provided by numerous jewellers didn’t suit our requirements as we wanted the plaque to be seen clearly read by anyone who might go close to the bird house. We were able to find a very helpful company online who provided us with a Silver Alumark, lasered and adhesive backed plaque. (Can supply the company name if necessary). On receiving the plaque Raymond’s speediness in assembling the birdhouse with the memorial plaque in pride of place was unbeatable.

We now have 2 fantastic birdhouses as Christmas gifts which will be treasured for years to come. We are excited to give them to their recipients.

Thanks so much for your help in providing us with two wonderful gifts. I am sure this won’t be the last time you hear from us.

Tudor Birdhouse in Ireland
Hi Raymond,

As you will see from the picture attached my new Tudor Cottage Birdhouse is going down a treat! I really love it as do the many Robins, Finches, Blue tits and other birds in my garden. I am very impressed with the quality of the Tudor Birdhouse and how sturdy it is as even when it has been taken over with a large gang of crows, it stays firmly in place.  I have put it under a Larch tree (My Favorite) and it brings a smile to my face every morning as I leave for work. I am a 100% happy with my Tudor Birdhouse and I am sure I’ll be ordering some more! A colleague of mine was so impressed with my hand made Tudor Birdhouse he has ordered the same one via your website,www.cuckoosgarden.com. I am so glad I found your website and I will recommend it to all my friends.

Thank you so much

Boston Irish & The Irish Thatch Cottage Birdhouse
Hi Raymond

Having had a great shopping experience with you at the Cuckoos Garden, I felt I should drop you a note expressing my gratitude and my good experience which might also be of help to you and your potential customers. The Boston Irish are a big fan of your Birdhouses.

I came across Cuckoos Garden in a Google search for “thatched cottage bird feeders” when I needed a birthday present for my mother in Boston last year.  The fact that they’re Irish made was a definite attraction.  Raymond himself couldn’t have been more pleasant or helpful when I contacted him, a lovely, interesting man.  I called to his workshop, liked what I saw, and he provided one in sturdy packaging for transport. The craftsmanship and materials are very high quality and my mother is delighted with it.  It’s displayed in a place of honor where all who see it admire it greatly.  I went back to Cuckoos Garden this year when I wanted a memorial feature for my own garden.  Again, Raymond was extremely helpful and customized one of his thatched cottages, adding my plaque on a little plinth inside, with a speed and sensitivity much appreciated at a difficult time.

All the best,


Boston Irish
