Great welcome, up to date, fully equipped and clean rooms. Brilliant advice given about places to eat and walking. Maps and directions supplied in a useful pamphlet that we were allowed to take. Lovely breakfast and lovely owners all in a lovely setting close to bowness and Windermere.

Just had a long weekend away and stayed at this lovely guest house which is ideally situated between Bowness and Windermere, the owners are really nice and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble, rooms are very clean and breakfast is spot on! We had little step by step guides in our room to show us were all the best walks... More

A lovely bed and breakfast run by a very welcoming couple Jane and Mark. The hotel was situated in a good place for visiting local attractions. The information booklet in our room was extremely useful and full of places to visit and places to eat. We would highly recommend a stay here. Kath and Peter

Excellent value and run so well. Bedrooms really comfortable and ideal location, you can walk into Windermere and Bowness on Windermere . We parked the car up and walked all weekend. The owners couldn't help us enough , texting us, asking if us if we needed help. We will be back and highly recommend.

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of half term. We were blessed with a gorgeous sunny day and managed to do one of the short walks from the guest house. The guest house is located really handily half way between Windermere and Bowness.

We stayed for 2 nights this January as a treat for my partner who needed to charge his batteries. The bedroom was clean and spacious with modern fittings and spotless bathroom. The breakfast was served in the dining room by Jane and cooked by Mark. It was excellent. Thornbank is well run and is ideally located between Bowness and Windermere,... More

really enjoyed our stay and the Breakfast was brilliant, the only thing would be to have an hour rather that half hour window for the Breakfast. The little hand book in your room giving step by step instructions for walks was a fantastic idea. Would definitely stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are pleased you found our information packs useful. We have tried many combinations of breakfast times and as we must have food freshly presented we have found this is the best compromise. However, we are always happy to try and accommodate specific requests regarding breakfast selection or timings. Next... More

My husband and I stayed here for a three night break over the new year period and we cannot praise the owners enough. The room was extremely comfortable and had every home comfort we could want.
