This Guesthouse is a fantastic place to stay with a great location. We had an excellent 2 nights stay early September and were well looked after by its new owners David & Clair. Excellent service, free parking and a fantastic breakfast.

Clare and David made us extremely welcome and were very informative about local area. Location is perfect - in central Keswick within walking distance of town and lake area. Breakfast was perfect and room, with mountain view, was very clean and well appointed. We look forward to returning again soon!

Our room was perfect, extremely clean and tidy with great views of Latrigg and Skiddaw and kitted out with all necessary amenities, toiletries and accessories. We were given a free parking permit for the car park literally just round the corner as the spaces immediately outside... More

For our honeymoon weekend we could not have picked a better place. The new owners Claire and David are pulling out the stops to make everyone feel comfortable and happy in their guest house. Excellent service, lovely clean room and top notch breakfast and two very nice owners. Position is perfect and the free car park pass was very handy... More

Hidden in plain view right in the heart of Keswick, this guest house ticks all the boxes! Our 2-night stay got off to a great start with the free parking space (yes, in Keswick town centre!) out front. Then the warmest of welcomes from our hosts, Claire & David who remained most attentive & cheerful throughout our visit! They were... More

Thank you very much for your excellent and humorous review. We are both so pleased that you immediately rebooked and will be staying with us again at the end of this month.

We arrived at Thornleigh guest house on Friday afternoon, and met by Clare, who made us feel very welcome, she explained about just having taken over ownership of the guest house 3-4 weeks previously. We were shown to our room which was very nice with an amazing view of Skiddaw. The facilities in the room were excellent, and it was... More

Thank you very much for your very kind review. Unfortunately we cannot promise to organise a fly pass for your next visit! Joking aside it was an absolute incredible experience that we shared with you, seeing the remaining two serviceable Lancaster bombers fly low over Keswick from our bay window. We also will never forget this moment. We are so... More

Just had a fantastic 5 days stay at Thornleigh Guest House from Monday 11.08.2014 in the heart of Keswick. The room was so comfortable with all the facilities being of a very high standard and the breakfasts have to be seen and tasted to be believed, certainly the best in the lakes. Clare and David are the perfect hosts and... More

Jill and Graham the previous owners have only just left Thornleigh due to their retirement.

They worked as a team with Jill and her husband and you could see that the same warm welcome, the lovely breakfast, the friendliness... More
