spotlessly clean (NO cat hairs to be found), comfortable, great breakfasts, set in pleasant garden and grounds Magnificent cats (don't be surprised if the grey fur hearthrug gets up and walks, he has weight problem) all very well mannered and they wont bother you unless you want it. (leave your bedroom door open for a complimentary furry hot water bottle... More

Just had a lovely stay at Thornley House, a beautiful house and gardens set in the stunning Northumberland countryside. The best bit about it was being instantly welcomed and entertained throughout the stay by six lovely cats and Eileen who is a brilliant host, with stories from her many travels. Our room was lovely too, clean and comfortable with a... More

Just spent a lovely long weekend at Thornley House. If you love cats then you're in for a treat as there are six living here and they are all very much part of the experience. Eileen our hostess couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The house and garden are beautiful and our room had a stunning art deco bathroom.... More

This was just like staying at home for us. We have six cats so staying here was like we never left home. Eileen was a wonderful hostess and Shirley made us some amazing breakfasts. Plus it was a great treat having the house's only female cat, Ivana, sleep in the bed with us. And little Alexi was adorable. Overall, it's... More

If you love cats, then this is the place for you! We have 6 cats at home and our stay at Thornley House was like staying with an English aunt and her cats. Eileen has a great love of cats. She is well traveled and very interesting to talk with. Shirley cooks a great breakfast and is a joy to... More

Thornley House is a lovely little B&B located in the English County side. It is the perfect place to get away from it all, with its pleasant atmosphere, lovely gardens, and a menagerie of animals (real and fake) that make the stay there one of memories. Ellen goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable and well... More

So late, so late, we called ahead to say we were delayed. Eileen said not to worry - she would wait 'til midnight if necessary! So friendly. So unusual for the modern age! We arrived not knowing what was in store and were greeted by a kitten trying to escape through the from door! Eileen's welcome was so warm, so... More

In short: Lovely cats, Beautiful garden, Large bedroom, Countless ornaments, Two donkeys, Hearty breakfast The owner uses the revenue she makes from the B&B to rescue animals - reason enough to pay her your money 😃👍

If you want, the cats will come to bed with you! (I did) The gardens are open to the public through the Open Garden Scheme and I'm not... More
