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

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

This was our 4th visit to Thornley House. Eileen is always welcoming and my daughter loves having a little room of her own next to ours. We love the cats and the donkeys - we have to go to feed Sid and Gilbert every time we visit. Allendale is a beautiful spot in Northumberland, and this is a great place... More

Lovely B and B in idyllic spot ten miles from Hexham and near Allendale village. Eileen is a wonderful hostess with an eccentric vision all of her own. Cats and donkeys and glorious garden. Very quiet spot and despite all the animals, the B and B is spotless and we had a brilliant breakfast. Great base for walking and would... More
