Stayed here for a long weekend, and can't speak highly enough of the hospitality we received. The rooms were spotless and well equipped. Would highly recommend to anyone, and 6 of us will definitely return!!! Thanks again to the owners Mark and Jane. Peter, Alison, Charlotte and Will

My wife and i stayed at this lovely guest house this weekend (20th/21st August) and found Thornbank House to be absolutely fantastic in every possible way. From the minute we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the owners Jane & Mark who are really nice friendly people. The guest house and room were spotlessly clean and well equipped with lovely...

2016年8月の夏休みに、妻と私でこのB&Bに宿泊(ツインの部屋)しました。場所はウインダミヤとボウネスのちょうど中間に位置しています。ウインダミヤの駅から徒歩10分ほどかと思われます。そのため、ウインダミヤやボウネスの騒がしさとは別世界のとても静かな場所です。なお、マンチェスター空港からレンタカーを借り、日本から持参したカーナビを使い、問題なく(約1時間半で)到着しました。 部屋はとても清潔感にあふれ、すごしやすかったです。朝食は5種類あり、前の晩に選ぶことができます(紙に書き込んで申し込みます)。やはり、最も美味かったのはイングリッシュブレックファストでした。 私達の宿泊したツインの部屋は北向きであるため、昼間の室温が上がらず、夜間の室温は20℃に下がります(外気温は10℃まで下がります)。少し寒かったです。妻も私も長袖のスウェットを持参したため、問題なく眠ることができました。 なお、駐車場がちょっと狭かったです。そのため、レンタカーを路上駐車しました。宿の女性主人の話では、「路上駐車しても問題ない」ということでした。 ジーンズと長袖のシャツの洗濯を依頼したところ、やってくださいました。 次回湖水地方に行くのであれば、このB&Bに宿泊したいと思います My wife and I stayed this B&B (twin bed room) during our summer vacation in August, 2016. The location is just the middle between Windermere and Bowness. Probably it takes 10 minutes of walking from Windermere station. Therefore, the surrounding was very silent. In my case, we arrived to this B&B from Manchester airport... More

Lovely clean rooms, great bathroom, good showers, good bed to sleep in with coffee, tea, biscuits complimentary in room. There is some private car parking at the back of the house. No common room/ living room for BnB guests to relax & unwind however. This must be done in your own bedroom. Breakfast is served only between 8:30 - 9:30... More

Owners Jane and Mark are so friendly and kind, and make you feel at home whilst still maintaining that " holiday" atmosphere. Breakfast is the highlight of the day!!
