Booked the small double room and was pleasantly surprised that it was a reasonable size and larger than expected. We were met by Mark who gave us so much information, which was great. Spotlessly clean room, crisp clean bedding, great breakfast. Lots of info in the room about the area and a book of walks which literally had step by... More

After reading all the good reviews of this b&b we were looking forward to a wonderful return to one of our favourite parts of the country. I have been trying to decide if we have been very lucky with our previous b&b's or have others been very unlucky. When we arrived we were shown to our front aspect room on... More

The location is great, right in between Bo'ness and Windermere. Our room had a tv but it only received 2 channels which wasn't a huge problem but if we'd wanted to watch tv it's not a lot of choice. The continental breakfast was disappointing, I expected a choice of 2-3 pastries and to be able to choose what fruit I... More

Polite and friendly hosts providing comfortable and cosy accommodation with plenty choice of breakfasts to suit any diet needs. Ideal location between Windermere and Bowness on Windermere - only 10 to 15 minute walk each way to the town centres.

The reviews here helped me find this guesthouse. It's located halfway between Windermere and Bowness and everything is within walking distance. We booked into a triple room and it's very cozy and hygienic. The single bed is a real comfy bed and we appreciate that. The toilet is new and spacious. Upon arrival, Mark helped us move the heavy suitcases... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights and we cannot complain, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home with a fridge to store our wine and glasses provided. Breakfast was served early at 8.30 which suited me well, however my partner enjoys a lie in. This was accompanied for as a packed up... More

Thornbank is a great place to stay if you are travelling to the Lake District. Jane and Mark are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The wide range of breakfast choices was really good and the room was really nice and airy.
