We went to stay there for a night and it was a really good stay with lovely people. There was a lady named jane who checked us in. She explained all the things we wanted to know about the local area and she cooked us a lovely breakfast.

We stayed for 2 nights in April 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent accommodation - clean, well equipped, and the hosts were very welcoming. Mark & Jane were more than willing to provide local information, even though there was plenty in the room including a list of places to eat, hospitals/chemists, places of worship etc. There was also a booklet...

I stayed here for just one night, in a nice twin room, while visiting an exhibition in Windermere. The room I had was spacious, clean and well heated with TV, on-suite, and shower. Thee bed was comfortable and I slept well. The Wi-Fi worked well. Breakfast was excellent, but being only between 8.30 and 9.00 it may be a little... More

Just up a quiet road midway between Thornbank is a traditional B & B. Good value, and a warm welcome from Mark. We were in the bedroom downstairs beside the dining room. It looks out on to the car park at the back. Set up as a twin for us, it wasn't huge but OK with ensuite with electric shower.... More

We had an enjoyable stay at Thornbank House over the Easter break. Jane and Mark were extremely hospitable, were well equipped to share with us things to do in the Lakes District, the accommodation was immaculate, comfortable and in a central location, and the breakfasts were tasty. Jane and Mark even prepared a breakfast-to-go for our early morning departure. We... More
