David and Clare were wonderful hosts, happy to share info about the area and just overall so pleasant to chat with. As for breakfast, David learned how to make an egg white omelette for me and did a super job, even though neither of them had ever heard of such a thing. Delicious. And I also splurged and had my...

Just returned from a really lovely stay at Thornleigh. Superb accommodation, excellent food and the warmest of welcomes from our hosts Clare & David. From the moment we arrived we were treated like old friends by this lovely couple. Nothing was to much trouble during our stay. The room was excellent, the guest house sparkled and as an added bonus... More

This was our first visit to Thornleigh and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is ideally situated close to the the town centre with easy access to all that Keswick has to offer. We had a very warm welcome and quickly got settled into our room and felt very much at home. Having stayed in many B&Bs over the years,... More

Just returned following a four night stay at the Thornleigh Guest House. The hosts, David & Clare met us on arrival and they continued to provide an excellent service throughout the stay. The room (No. 1) had recently been refurbished to a high standard, including a very comfortable King Size bed. The view from the room was of the surrounding... More

Just back from our second stay at Thornleigh (the first was in November 2014), this time for 4 nights. We were not surprised to see everything was still of the same very high standard. We stayed in the recently refurbished room 5 which has a very comfortable super-king size bed, and a brilliant mountain view. Breakfasts were once again excellent... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. It's nice to receive positive feedback on the upgrades that we are making, in particular, from returning guests.

We stayed at Thornleigh four nights in April 2015. We were greeted by Clare and David and immediately knew they were perfect hosts. They were friendly, helpful, and went over and above our expectations. We even met their two charming sons! Our room was spotless (thanks David!) and beautifully decorated. We had a spectacular mountain view without even getting out... More

Our stay in Thornleigh Guest House was a thoroughly enjoyable one due to the warm hospitality of Clare and David and their five star accommodation in the centrally located Guest House. We arrived by bus and after a three minute walk to the Guest House we were welcomed into the designer renovated Guest House. Our room with a view over... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in March this year, and what an amazing stay we had. It was 5 star from even before we arrived. Clare and David emailed us for an rough time of arrival (unbeknown to us, so they could assist us to our room with our luggage). Very friendly welcome, and both extremely knowledgeable. We got...

David and Clare are a friendly and informative couple with a good knowledge of the area. A great guest house with free parking and literally a stones through from the town centre. We would love to come and stay here again.
