Our second stay with Jill & Graham was again thoroughly enjoyable. We were given a warm reception as soon as soon as we arrived and throughout our stay we felt like we were at home. The standard of service is first class. We were even given a choice of rooms as we were the very first guests of the new... More

It was great to have you stay with us again, and as you were our first guests upon re-opening at the start of our season it was wonderful to see familiar faces. If we can give our guests a room option, we prefer to do so. Difficult on occasions, as all our rooms are lovely and sometimes guests face a... More

We stayed at Thornleigh over the New Year period to enjoy the fells and Keswick's New Year celebrations. The guest house is clean and comfortable with excellent views of the surrounding mountains, despite the low cloud & poor weather during our visit! The hosts, Jill and Graham provide the extra mile which makes Thornleigh a cut above the rest, offering... More

It was truly a pleasure to have you stay with us over the New Year, and yet what you experienced was the normal service that everyone receives here at Thornleigh...sorry, but you didn`t get anything over and above anyone else- all our guests...

Just returned from 3 nights at this guesthouse, Jill, the owner could not do enough for us. Our party size was altered a couple of times previous to our stay, but this was never seen as a problem, and we were accommodated faultlessly. The guesthouse is spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were delicious and made from fresh, local ingredients. Jill... More

Having submitted several reviews on Thornleigh I am running out of ways to say how good the guest house is. All I can say is if you are looking for a very clean, comfortable place to stay in Keswick look no further. The hosts are wonderful and the breakfasts worthy of the awards received.

We (party of 6 - 3 rooms) stayed at the Thornleigh in mid September '13. Prior to our arrival, I sent Jill a few emails with questions about location, things to do and see.

Thornleigh thoroughly deserves all the good reviews here. We stayed 3 nights and were extremely pleased. Great breakfasts, lovely hospitality and fantastic mountain views from the bedroom window. Nice and quiet and you could not be better placed for the town which is a great place to spend an evening after a good day climbing etc. Would definitely return. Thanks.
