My husband and I are from Texas and love to hike in the UK. Our favorite destination is the Lake District and our favorite town is Keswick. Once in Keswick we prefer to stay at the Thornleigh, when available. Jill and Graham always make us feel welcome and part of their family. They go above and beyond making any guests stay a memorable success. Over the years we've been In awe of their on-going updates and the rooms have always been spotless. Graham has been given a prestigious breakfast award which we can atest to is well deserved. As hikers we've appreciated their knowledge of the local trails.
Recently we've become aware that the Thornleigh has been put on the market. This would be an excellent investment for anyone interested in buying a B&B in the Lake District.

Just returned from are first ever stay at the Thornleigh over the easter period it was a wonderfull and enjoying three days, from the moment we booked in, with a very warm welcoming from Jill and Graham, to three superb breakfasts and three excellent nights sleep, with lots of fun and laughter in between. The hotel is spotless and the facilities in the room are second to none,The location is excellent just a small walk into the town centre where there are excellent bars and shops to cater for everyone. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent with stunning views

Well, it's my yearly visit to this simply superb Guest House, where, as expected, Jill and Graham were the absolute perfect hosts. Knowledge and advice about the Lakes were provided to help my stay, and they really go out of their way to make the stay simply wonderful - it is no wonder that they have so many repeat guests - I certainly would not stay in any other Guest House in Keswick. Parking was no problem, just ask Jill and she knows where to park, including the spaces infront of the property. Breakfast was superb, (and Graham has won the Breakfast award now.....see the front wall as you go up the steps). Room was very clean and facilities were excellent, (obvious care and attention) - they really go out of their way to make the stay warm, friendly, comfortable etc, bed was super-comfy and "in room" facilities were really good. I seriously recommend this Guest House to anyone staying in the Northern Lakes area. It is 2 minutes walk from the centre of Keswick yet no traffic noise.

Room Tip: All rooms have their own good points, views etc

This was our first visit and we were glad that we had chosen this place to stay in Keswick. The rooms were cleaned and comfortable, and Jill was very hospitable and welcoming. Makes the overall stay enjoyable with the extra care and attention. The location is ideal, walking distance to town central. Only problem is lack of parking space.

Room Tip: The attic bedroom if you can manage the stairs, is absolutely charming and offers breathtaking views...

This was our third visit and are always amazed how great hosts Jill and Graham are. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the breakfasts worthy of the awards they have received. Thornleigh's location is great for all the Keswick area has to offer.

We have stayed here twice now and both times we found everything possible to be outstanding, we were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We cannot stress enough how special staying at Thornleigh Guest House made our stay in the Lakes. Everything was so clean and comfortable and had that extra special touch with very much attention to detail. The breakfasts were cooked to our needs and very fulfilling for the day ahead. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Keswick we can thoroughly recommend you stay at Thornleigh Guest House as we loved it and look forward to going back again.
