We stayed 4 days but much too short! Jill and Graham run a top class B&B. From the amazing breakfast to the locally made exquisite shampoo and soap. Beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Jill advised us regarding suitable attractions, walks etc, plus a very timely weather report every morning. We will really miss Keswick!

A wonderful welcome by Jill greeting us by our first names. Nothing was too much trouble and Jill helped us up with out luggage to the top of the house. Very interesting room which after a couple of problems was soon sorted out. We felt might have been better for the bed to be the other way round so you... More

we were met with a wonderful welcoming hug from the lovely Gill who runs this splendid guest house along with hubby graham. The weekend we spent there was faultless due to a beautiful comfy spotlessly clean room.

Well thank you for your wonderful review. Your first visit to Thornleigh but regular visitors to Keswick, so you really didn't take much looking after! It was a pleasure to 'look after'you nevertheless. So pleased that you appreciated our efforts...you didn't leave much breakfast! We'll certainly look forward to seeing you again. Keep well, both, and thanks again. More

Jill and Graham are devoted to making your stay in The Lake District a pleasant and comfortable experience. The rooms are exceptionally clean and well furnished and to top it all, Grahams breakfast is worth waiting for. We have had many short breaks in Keswick and would not consider staying anywhere else. 10 out of 10.
