The location is perfect, with a choice of easy or hard walks straight from the door, plus pubs and restaurants on the doorstep too. This is the best guesthouse we have stayed in. The room was nicely decorated, and thoughtful touches like fresh milk on the tea tray. Great view of skiddaw from the room also. The owners, Clare and... More

Our 3rd visit to this homely yet stylish victorian terrace in the heart of Keswisk. Any worries about coming back here were soon dispelled by Clare & Davids customary warm & friendly welcome! Impressively, they've continued to make tasteful changes without undermining the charm & character of the place! This was evident in Room 3, our favourite, compact & comforgable... More

My wife and I usually visit Keswick 3 times a year (over the past 4 years), staying in various places and sampling lots of different types of accommodation. We stayed at Thornleigh just after Christmas for a short break, and just like our previous visits to Keswick, the stay was relaxing and the service was terrific. David and Clare greeted... More

Thornleigh is well located in the centre of Keswick with off street parking. Claire and David gave us a very warm welcome and we very much enjoyed our short stay. Room was very comfortable with excellent amenities: very comfortable bed, 3 chairs, TV, Tea & Coffee tray, hairdryer, toiletries, Kleenex, extra blankets, hot water bottle etc etc. Breakfast was delicious...

Huge thank you to Claire and David who gave us the most wonderful welcome and were immediately approachable and friendly which continued throughout our stay.

We booked this guest house in July 2014 for the New Year. The proprietors changed in August, and we were a little apprehensive as a change in proprietor can mean standards may drop. How wrong we were. Clare and David the new proprietors were an absolutely fantastic couple. Our welcome was superb and the accommodation was outstanding and a great... More

We have been coming to keswick for 7 years and stayed at Thornleigh on many occasions, but this was the 1st time with the new owners Clare and David. A little nervous since we did not want the change of ownership to spoil our wonderful memories, however, staying with Clare and David was an absolutely fantastic experience from the second... More

Thank you so much for your very kind review. You must have been nervous about new owners, having been coming to Thornleigh for so many years. We did indeed have a hard act to follow and knowing that you still love it just as much and have booked another visit is very rewarding indeed. We enjoyed getting to know you... More

My wife and i just returned from Thornleigh guest house after 4 lovely nights there. It was our second stay and after our first impressive stay Clare and David have redecorated throughout and the place looks great. Yet again their warm welcome stands out alongside the caring host feeling that is so obvious but natural from them both. Nothing is... More

I always find reviews interesting in that they are a personal review of my own experiences, so let me start as follows...'This is without doubt the best guest house we have stayed in and in fact now surpasses any we have stayed in before. It is perfect in terms of location, cleanliness, facilities and more importantly the hosts'. In detail... More

Wow!!! What a review to wake up to on New Years Day. Thank you both so much.We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and hosting you at Thornleigh.
