The Thatched Garage started out as a fuel station in 1929. However in 1987 Neil Digby-Clarke purchased it. He wanted to create a Land Rover Specialist where the customer service is as good as the workmanship. Now skip to the present day, his son, Ben Digby-Clarke continues his legacy.
At the beginning the focus was on Land Rover Series & Defenders, but as time has progressed, we now specialise in everything Land Rover, Range Rover & Jaguar.
Our Sales are still mainly focused on Defenders, where we always carry a large selection of quality used offerings, but we do also cater for Freelander, Discovery, Range Rover & Jaguar.
We have full workshop facilities, in our workshops we follow Land Rover, Range Rover & Jaguar service schedules, we run the same diagnostics as if you were visiting the main agent, we also have the facility to update your online service records. All services also come with a free EVHC check and we only use Castrol lubricants, so you know your vehicle is getting the very best. We service all the latest vehicles, but because of our roots we are able to work on vehicles right back to 1948.
We also run an online store, which caters for Defender upgrades, people shop from all over the world on this. We service Land Rover, Range Rover & Jaguars from all over East Sussex, West Sussex, Kent, and Surrey, but some customers travel from all over the country or even across from Europe.
We are located just outside the village of East Hoathly in East Sussex, which is in between Uckfield, Heatfield, Lewes & Hailsham on the A22.
We have now had our offices fully renovated and they are a lot more welcoming to our customers, whilst still keeping some of the original features of the building, with a modern twist. After all its not everyday that your see an independent Land Rover, Range Rover & Jaguar Specialist in a Thatched building.
