We spent a couple of nights at Thornbank House last month. It's perfectly situated for both Bowness and Windermere, if you don't mind a 10 minute walk. Mark welcomed us and gave us some really useful information about the area. Everything was clean and worked fine. The breakfast prepared us for the days ahead, and we even got to give... More

Spent a lovely weekend at Thornbank House, which is situated within a short walking distance to Bowness and Windermere. The owners are very helpful, breakfast lovely and the rooms very clean. Only negative comment is that the tv only worked on BBC channels....but should you really be watching tv?! probably not ;-)

Our experience of Thornbank House started prior to our arrival with Jane and Mark liaising with me via email about my special dietary requirements. As I'm vegan and my partner is vegetarian this was enormously helpful - I knew in advance what they were able to provide and at every breakfast they prepared our table and breakfasts accordingly, which were...

We stayed 2 nights with Jane and Mark. Our room was lovely -- comfy bed, cool decoration and a really nice en suite bathroom. Breakfast was yummy with lots of choice. The guest house is located about half way between Windermere and Bowness so a 5/10 minute walk to either centre. Very convenient. We were seeing friends who live up... More

We only stayed for one night, but in our short stay we got a real feel for how passionate Jane and Mark are for their guest house. Very helpful in making suggestions for our visit and very presentable, comfortable little guest house. Breakfast also very good. Would stay again.
