An ancient building, with a warren of corridors, many of the rooms outside the main building across the cobbled yard. Excellent, fresh food served in the beamed dining room at the top of the house. The freshest, most efficiently served breakfast I have experienced anywhere - no sooner was it ordered than it arrived! The manager's manner took a little... More

An enjoyable weekend in Sedbergh which is a beautiful part of the UK for walking. Saw quite a few rooms which were excellent. Mine was a single room in the annexe, very small but totally adequate and very clean. Meals were of a good standard but ruined as they were served cold (breakfast) or luke warm (evening meal). Nice lounge... More

What a fantastic place to go, the hotel itself was great. Our room was brilliant, I think that the room we had must have recently been re-furbished. The bathroom was like new, no lime scale anywhere, the shower was the same, very clean and a pleasure to use. The location couldn't be better, a couple of minutes walk from the... More

This is part of HF holidays for people, largely elderly and middle-aged, who go on walking tours, but you can book for bed and breakfast. It's an interesting building on the edge of Sedbergh.The room was clean and comfortable in an annex, but the public areas and the communal dining tables are reminiscent of a hostel, not a hotel. Not... More

HF country house which dates back to Tudor times with lots of character features. Convenient setting a couple of minutes walk from the Sedbergh town centre and an excellent base for both the Dales and the Southern lakes. Excellent meals provided and service excellent throughout my stay.

Thorns Hall is a HF “country House” rather than a hotel. It’s ideal location provides a fine base for the “Which” recommended holiday co-operative’s activity holidays. Dating from 1535, the recent refurbishment required care and sympathy. The few remaining minor details should soon be resolved. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. An interesting menu gives a range of well prepared... More

Mis-advertised/represented as a hotel when in fact it is a hostel for HF Holidays. Very disappointed not to be informed that this isn't a standard hotel and there would be no-one on reception duty for most of the day. Paid standard hotel rate and experienced stress of trying to check in without anyone to check in with. Double room was... More

Had a wonderful week of walking and stayed at Thorns Hall where David Newton keeps a close eye to ensure you are having a good visit. The three meals were all quite good. The breakfast options are outstanding and the dinners were a real treat. The staff is extremely attentive. You can walk from the house or take a bus... More

A nice country house a short walk from Sedbergh. It's organised along the same lines as other HF houses I've been to. Order your evening meal before you go out in the morning and lunch before retiring. I was in a twin room below the kitchen which was roomy enough. The POWER shower warrants the capitol letters, it was as... More
