One of the best HF houses. Great walking. Excellent food and service. The manager, David, could not have done any more to make our stay enjoyable. The food was a highlight of our holiday. The rooms seem to have been refurbished recently to a very high standard.

Lovely location - lovely room - friendly staff. Clearly, if your not a walker you do feel a little out of place. Communal dining is not for me. I'm not a morning person and didn't like making small talk with strangers over breakfast. Everyone talks about walking !! Short walk to the village . Super location and David the manager... More

An ancient building, with a warren of corridors, many of the rooms outside the main building across the cobbled yard. Excellent, fresh food served in the beamed dining room at the top of the house. The freshest, most efficiently served breakfast I have experienced anywhere - no sooner was it ordered than it arrived! The manager's manner took a little... More

An enjoyable weekend in Sedbergh which is a beautiful part of the UK for walking. Saw quite a few rooms which were excellent. Mine was a single room in the annexe, very small but totally adequate and very clean. Meals were of a good standard but ruined as they were served cold (breakfast) or luke warm (evening meal). Nice lounge... More

What a fantastic place to go, the hotel itself was great. Our room was brilliant, I think that the room we had must have recently been re-furbished. The bathroom was like new, no lime scale anywhere, the shower was the same, very clean and a pleasure to use. The location couldn't be better, a couple of minutes walk from the... More

This is part of HF holidays for people, largely elderly and middle-aged, who go on walking tours, but you can book for bed and breakfast. It's an interesting building on the edge of Sedbergh.The room was clean and comfortable in an annex, but the public areas and the communal dining tables are reminiscent of a hostel, not a hotel.

HF country house which dates back to Tudor times with lots of character features. Convenient setting a couple of minutes walk from the Sedbergh town centre and an excellent base for both the Dales and the Southern lakes. Excellent meals provided and service excellent throughout my stay.

Thorns Hall is a HF “country House” rather than a hotel. It’s ideal location provides a fine base for the “Which” recommended holiday co-operative’s activity holidays. Dating from 1535, the recent refurbishment required care and sympathy. The few remaining minor details should soon be resolved. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. An interesting menu gives a range of well prepared... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dating from 1535, the small manor house of Thorns Hall retains its historic charm with wood-panelled public rooms, fireplaces and a cobbled courtyard outside. With an enviable location on the edge of Sedbergh, and surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, it's not surprising that many of our guests return year after year. ... more   less
