“Great holiday in this fantastic house!”
Reviewed June 2, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have just returned home after a family holiday at Thornfield. The house is excellent in every way, spacious, spotlessly clean, well-equipped, comfortable and just right for our party of 7 adults & 3 children under 4 years of age. The large garden is lovely with plenty of space for games, bbq etc. The children loved the attic bedroom with all the toys. There is plenty to do in the area, with beautiful walks on the doorstep. We had a fantastic time and can't wait to return!

“Perfect for a family get-together”
Reviewed March 4, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Booked this house for my Dad's 80th Birthday so the family (11 of use) could get together and celebrate. This house was perfect, fully equipt with everything you need and plenty of room for everyone with a fabulous big kitchen and relaxed living room with log burner. The house was spotlessly clean and very well decorated throughout. My little niece particularly enjoyed the loft space where there was lots of toys for her to enjoy and my sister loved relaxing in the roll top bath. Unfortunately could not enjoy the lovely garden and patio area as the weather was a little wet! All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable long weekend, would love to book this house again. Thank you.

“Fantastic second stay at Thornfield”
Reviewed February 8, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Just returned from our second visit to Thornfield Cottage. We stayed with 2 other families all with 2 children each. Loads of space for the kids and they love the play room. The Cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay with a couple of families.We love the big table wehere we can all sit and eat at the same time. To be honest we don't normally use the lounge until the kids have gone to bed and then we light the fire and chill out. The walk to Arnside knot can be approached from different directions. We have small children but you can make it as short or as long a walk as you want it to be. The local spar is within walking distance and also the local pub the Albion where we had a lovely Sunday Lunch after walking to the beach. Always nice to round off with locally made ice cream and a photo on the pier. Can't wait until our return next year.

Amazing, amazing, amazing.

Just back from a fantastic weekend at this lovely house. It is our second time here and we will be back again next year.

We are a group of three young families, the house is perfect for a relaxed chilled weekend of walking, playing boardgames, family fun and maybe a glass of wine or two. The house is amplesize for all twelve (without getting in each other's way). It has superb facilities and the well stocked kitchen makes cooking breakfast and meals easy. Set in a stunning location with a beautiful garden -I would recommend.

We have lots of fond memories in this house and look forward to making more next year

“Exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed October 16, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Thornfield exceeded our expectations. The photos don't do it justice! From the moment the 11 of us arrived it was clear that this was a spotlessly clean, fully equipped, nicely decorated house with lots of space so that we could all choose to be together, of have some quiet time away in another room if we fancied. The cosy lounge, spacious kitchen and tasteful master bedroom were the main bits that stood out, together with the lovely gardens and surrounding countryside.
A short walk away there are some lovely walks, shops, coffee bars & The Albion pub which serves excellent food.
We will certainly be back!

“Fab!”

Just back from a long weekend staying here with our family. Excellent accommodation, very clean and tidy. The house is beautiful and the location was great to be able to walk into Arnside. Every chance we will return for another visit!

“Fantastic house for adults and kids”
Reviewed July 15, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Just back from staying a week at this beautifully presented house. We were 6 adults and 6 kids under 5. Lots of space and lovely garden for playing / BBQing in. My 2 kids (3&4) had a blast staying in the attic bedroom which had lots of toys for them to play with. Short stroll to Arnside Knott with spectacular views across the bay/countryside. 15 mins walk to pub and tasty pie shop (The Bakehouse) and plenty to do for all in surrounding area - something tells me we may be back!

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your stay at Thornfield, we are absolutely over the moon that you enjoyed your time there. Having that fun attic bedroom for the little ones sounds fab - what a treat for them to have a bit of a holiday 'kid zone'! And with the pub and pie shop close by we don't think it could get much better! We certainly hope you return for another stay very very soon.
