We stayed here for two nights, the owner is very friendly. The breakfast was very good and the rooms were very pleasant and quiet. No complaints at all, the hostess was very knowledgable about the history of the building which was interesting.

We visited in April this year with friends and stayed for four nights. We thought it was wonderful, nothing seemed too much trouble for Vanessa. The rooms were splendid and comfortable. A peaceful place to stay. Looking forward to a return visit.

We stayed for 3 nights in a downstairs room suitable for most disabilities, it was large enough to get my walker in, the chairs both suitable and comfortable yet at the same time you did not feel like you were in a disabled room and you have lovely views of the garden. Breakfast each morning excellent and our one evening... More

We have just spent 2 nights at Thornton Lodge. The hostess Vanessa is extremely tentative, friendly; helpful and knowledgable about the local area. Thornton lodge itself is immaculate and very tastefully decorated. The breakfasts are cooked to order and obviously locally sourced as they are very tasty. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to others. Thankyou... More

Wonderful country house with fabulous views. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and well equipped; breakfast is all you could ask for, and the welcome and attention you receive from Vanessa is second to none. Absolutely perfect!

We found Thornton Lodge via a Google search - (don't bother with Booking.com it is not necessary) on the Friday night, gave Vanessa a phone call and booked for 2 nights from the Saturday to Bank Holiday money. We were both so happy with our choice when we arrived. Such a beautiful place to stay; the room was resplendent and... More
