Clare and Dave are fabulous hosts! From the time we arrived until we left the service was impeccable. Nothing was too much trouble and they were both really helpful. Eating out was great and when you stay at Thornleigh you can get a discount at some local restaurants - a bonus!!!!! Easy 200 yard walk to shops, pubs. And very... More

Clare and David are first class hosts, friendly and very efficient, knowledgeable about the local area and very welcoming. Our room was clean with beautiful views of the mountains. The bed was very comfortable and every breakfast we sampled was delicious and nicely presented. We thoroughly enjoyed our six night stay.

In a town full of B&B's this has to be a great choice. Our room was very comfortable with everything thought about down to spare blankets and a hot water bottle. We had places to stash our cases and a comfy sofa to relax on. You certainly get a warm welcome from Clare and David. The breakfasts are excellent -... More

Our walking holiday in the Lakes was wonderful. Keswick was magical as usual and staying at Thornleigh with friends made it all perfect. The room was lovely and the breakfast superb with lots of choice. Clare and David manage to keep everything spot on but still comfortable, friendly and relaxing.

A very friendly warm welcome awaited my Husband Geoff and myself at the elevated elegant Thornleigh Guest House recently. (Friday 12th-Sunday 14th June 2015) This was our first visit to the Thornleigh as our top choice to the highly rated Linnett Hill nearby was already fully block booked with our photography friends for the long weekend. We can honestly and... More

Clean and comfortable room; excellent breakfast choice expertly cooked and very well presented. The service here is top notch. Massive respect for what Clare and David are creating here. They are on top of their game, deserve to do well and will soon have a deserved reputation as the best B&B in Keswick. Great job you two!

Wonderful Hosts, can't praise them enough for their hospitality 10/10 beautiful rooms, and spotlessly clean, and all amenities catered for. Would highly recommend the Thornleigh to anyone wishing to stay in the Lakes.
