My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Thornleigh Guesthouse for 3 nights and can not recommend the place high enough! After a very wet days walking and a burst tyre we arrived at the B&B looking very dishevelled and no doubt looking very sorry for ourselves!

This is a lovely guest house. The rooms are great with stunning views, the welcome is extremely friendly and the breakfast is delicious- I can particularly recommend the porridge! The owners cannot do enough for you and when I left behind an earring they posted it first class. I can highly recommend it.

thornleigh guest house is the nicest guest house we have ever stayed in, we have been many times, and will keep going back, the new owners have taken over very well, and as as lovely as the previous owners, the guest house is spotlessly clean and very friendly, david & Claire make you feel so and the breakfast is great.

We stayed two nights over Easter 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This B&B is a gem, central with parking, spotless, comfortable, great breakfasts and two hosts (Clare and David) who make it their business to ensure you have everything you need from a warm welcome to local advice. When we stayed they even got the sun to shine for three... More

Thank you very much for your fantastic review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and wow 5 stars!! The beautiful sunshine was definitely an added bonus when visiting Keswick.
