We had come to Keswick to walk and it was wet (!), but they dried our gear and boots after a day on the fells. The whole... More

We had a midweek break in mid-October for our fifth visit to Thornleigh (our third with Clair & David) and it was better than ever. We received our usual warm welcome at the door when we arrived and David once again helped us with our bags. We had room 5 (again - simply the best!) with its superking-sized bed, brand... More

David & Clare never fail to deliver outstanding service, more from a personal perspective than just providing excellent quality services. The accommodation is clean, the breakfasts are amazing and the hospitality is warm and friendly. Thanks again for being such great hosts.

A lovely weekend; despite the HEAVY rain all weekend we did do a long walk; on our return all clothing was dried and returned to our rooms. Nothing is too much trouble. All reviews were accurate and we will definitely be returning. Excellent breakfasts!

Found an excuse to return for our 2nd visit this year. Once again we enjoyed our weekend in an attractive,warm and spotlessly clean room with spectacular views of Skiddaw. With a well cooked breakfast and Claire and David as lovely hosts the Thornleigh/ Keswick combination makes the perfect break!
