Lovely hotel, staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We was even given advise of days out, local attractions and places to eat. Breakfast was excellent. Location is good, would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the house and the area. Mark and Jane were gracious hosts. The rooms (one for parents, one for children) were quite comfortable and attractive. Breakfast was great.

Thanks for the review. It's a great idea to book rooms 2 and 3 for families with older children. It works really well. Molly sends a lick ! More

Stayed in room 2 a large modern spotlessly clean room with a lovely en suite. Excellent location right in the middle of Windermere and Bowness and only a ten minute walk to both. Good choice of breakfasts which were very appetising and well presented. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would stay again anytime.

Mark and Jane have earned a well deserved reputation for offering a warm, comfortable home away from home. The room we occupied was a good size, beautifully furnished, with a very comfortable bed - not too hard, not too soft, but just right!! The en-suite bathroom was spotlessly clean, the shower divine after a hard days holiday-making! Mark prepared delicious... More

We spent 3 nights at Thornbank and enjoyed every minute... It's a great and friendly place to stay! Mark and Jane were very friendly and the location was great. All-in-all a very pleasant place to relax and enjoy the lake district.

we stayed here for 2 nights with a 5-year girl. Both the room and the breakfast were awesome. It even provided breakfast menu for kids! When we left the house for the train station, it was only 15 mins left and we couldn't find a cab to pick us up. The house host decided to drive us to the train... More
