We stayed in a Thurnham Hall timeshare apartment in September 2011. Because of a gas leak we were upgraded to a two bedroom apartment in the old building. What a place! Two huge bedrooms with very comfortable beds, two well equipped washrooms, a large and well equipped kitchen and a large living and dining area. Probably about 1500 square feet.
Thurnham Hall is very well located and you can get to all sorts of places in a half hour drive. Not that we did that. We stumbled into a patch of fine weather (25 degrees and sunny) and we spent most of our time walking and biking in the local area. Walking along the canal towpaths was great and one day we followed one such path into Lancaster and did some of the sights there. We biked over to Morecambe and had lunch on the pier and took the bus, which stops right outside Thurnham Hall, into Lancaster for some serious shopping.
The restaurant is very nice and we dined there twice. Be warned the fish and chips is huge!
The Hall also has a decent fitness club and the grounds are lovely. One of the best things about Thurnham Hall is the staff. They are friendly, helpful and by far the best staff we have ever come across at a timeshare in Europe or North America.
Thurnham Hall surpassed our expectations and the week went by too quickly.
