“Wonderful House and adult break, would return in an instant”
Reviewed March 23, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

As a group of ten friends who meet up once a year (5 couples and a well behaved dog). We stayed for a long weekend, some the extended week minus kids. We had a brilliant time, the weather was wonderful and we managed to eat alfresco a few times. However even if the weather hadn't have been on our side the house had a wonderfully large dining table which was well used as well as the goldfish bowl sized wine glasses by us ladies.
Tetley, our dog, particularly enjoyed the beautiful garden and chased his ball and the odd peasant around. Non of the couples disagreed about the six bedrooms. With three bathrooms we never waited long. There are great walks in a wonderful part of the world, fablocal pubs and friendly locals. Claire the owner was super helpful before we arrived and the box of books, maps and blue bible was used extensively! As the previous comments made, visitors to Thornfield will not be disappointed, 5 stars all the way and all of us would come back again.

“Super House”
Reviewed November 18, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

As a group of nine we stayed her for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The large kitchen and dining room were a big hit , the kitchen is well equipped with decent sized glasses (we had the odd drink) large fridge and ice-maker.
The sitting room has lovely views over the garden and the estuary and is a nice place to relax. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very well appointed. The master bedroom is really impressive. The nearest pub (The Albion) is 0.7 miles away, serves well-kept beer and a good Sunday lunch. Visitors to Thornfield will not be disappointed. Recommended.

“A fab place to stay”
Reviewed May 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We've just returned home after a weekend away at this property, there was ten of us staying in the house and you certainly didn't feel like you were tripping over each other, it was very spacious, lovely decor & great facilities inside and out. The property is perfectly situated on beautiful grounds with lovely landscaped gardens and patio area. It was a wonderful place to stay, it was like a home from home and had everything we needed. Arnside is a quiet village with beautiful walks and scenery which we got to explore due to organising a treasure hunt with Door 2 Door adventures, we would certainly recommend them. We would not hesitate to book this accommodation again and recommend it to friends and family. Good communication with the owner. Anyone staying at this property will not be disappointed.

“Fantastic holiday accommodation”
Reviewed May 14, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This accommodation is superb.
We were 9 adults (couples and singles) looking for a place to stay that wasn't too cramped and Thornfield delivered. The property is spacious, has an amazing garden and a generally lovely atmosphere.
We arrived to the huge dining table set for dinner and spent most of our time there cooking in the huge, well equipped kitchen, enjoying log fires and wishing it wasn't raining so we could enjoy the spacious decking.
The living room was cosy and comfortable and we enjoyed an evening chatting around another log burning fire.
The house was spotlessly clean on arrival and full of nice touches that made our stay all the more special. The huge selection of glasses and the ice machine were big hits.
There is plenty to do in the surrounding area and some lovely shops and pubs in the village.
This place is a real gem and we would certainly come back to stay again.
