We have recently stayed with David and Claire for the second time. We were welcomed back like family and indeed Thornleigh felt like home. Together they ensure that everything is perfect - beautifully presented rooms with excellent amenities, exceptional cleanliness throughout and amazing breakfasts. I love their home-made porridge with blueberries and seeds mmmm.. Again David was very helpful planning... More

After many visits to Thornleigh in the last 16 years, we always know what to expect. This guest house provides us with an ideal, central location in Keswick, from which we can commence walks in this beautiful area. As always, we received a really warm welcome from the owners Clare and David. There is plenty of free car parking available,... More

Spent two nights in early July with another couple and my 83-year old cousin. Thornleigh was extremely well located in the beautiful town of Keswick, and could not have imagined a more friendly, helpful and welcoming couple than Clare & David. They showed great patience with all of us, were extremely helpful in providing recommendations and obtaining reservations for restaurants... More

To repeat other reviews David and Claire are wonderful hosts, from the welcome on arrival to the small touches like the flask of fresh milk when you return in the afternoon. The rooms are spotless and the great breakfasts set you up for the day. Looking forward to our next visit.

This is our second visit to Thornleigh and for sure it will not be our last! David and Clare are perfect hosts with excellent local knowledge. The breakfasts and cleanliness of room was perfect. The location of a new Wetherspoon's pub close by is a definite advantage! Thoroughly recommended!

We have just returned from our first visit to Thornleigh Guest House. It was excellent from start to finish. Clare and David were the perfect hosts and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Our room was very comfortable with stunning views of Latrigg and Skiddaw. Delicious breakfast with plenty of choice kept us going for most of the day.... More

Another enjoyable visit to Thornleigh. All expectations met! Whilst my previous reviews cover the highlights, including the key aspects you'd expect to find in a quality guest house, what occurs to me on this visit is the consistently impressive experience that Clare & David maintain on each visit. This included yet another great recommendation of a walk in Ennerdale, probably... More
