We have just had a truly wonderful three night stay at the Thornleigh guesthouse, which is just a short distance from the town centre. Clare and David were very welcoming and made every effort to ensure we had the very best possible experience in their guesthouse. Parking isn’t a problem with two spaces at the front of the house or... More

We have just returned from 4 fantastic nights at the Thornleigh Guest House. We were surprised to see new owners in Claire and David, however it was very obvious that the standard of service offered by the previous owners had been improved on. Those little extra touches that Claire and David provide made our stay just that little bit special.... More

Returned to Thornleigh, the only place we have ever been to twice! I think this says it all really. Loved staying here for the central location just outside the front door and the mountains out the back, you are 10 minuets from the lake and the many pubs and eateries in the town. Since our last visit new owners have... More

For her birthday (mid-Oct) my wife suggested that she'd like to visit the Lake District for a short break. it's a few years since we were last in the Lakes, but we well remember the spectacular scenery and the splendid autumnal colours of the Lakes at this time of year. After deciding to base ourselves in Keswick, I then had... More

We have just had our third midweek break at Thornleigh and it was better than ever! Clare and David have only just recently taken over and already they have started to put their own stamp on the place. Their welcome was second to none, very hearty, and they could not have done more for us if they had tried. They... More
