“Fantastic New Year”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed for 4 nights 30.12.14 - 3.1.15 , group of 6 friends including two 12 year old boys and a dog.
The location is stunning, beautiful and peaceful. The house was perfect, quirky and different. A little tired in places, poor pressure for the showers and would benefit from a comfy sofa in the smaller sitting room, but this was absolutely unbeatable value for money. We walked the woodland path into Rockcliffe where there was a bonfire on the beach on New Year's Eve. When the tide is out there is also a lovely walk along the causeway to Rough Island where there is a nature reserve.
We had arranged for a Tesco delivery and cooked in the large, well equipped kitchen and only ate out once at The Anchor Inn. The pub is a 10 minute walk away and is child and dog friendly with lovely food.
Very helpful and friendly email info from the owner however there was some confusion over picking up the key as it didn't quite turn out as expected but this was soon rectified and the cleaner arrived with a small welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee, bread and wine which was very much appreciated.
Central heating, TV, WiFi, dishwasher , washing machine all present but take your own loo roll. There is a small shop a short walk away, but this is more of a gift shop than grocers
I would be very happy to return to Thornleigh.

“Beautiful and civilised house in pretty location”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was sadly only a 2 night stay over a weekend but all of us wished it had been longer. The house inside was beautifully and tastefully furnished and decorated with interesting paintings and prints; it had some relatively old-fashioned plumbing but always functional and some very new too. Wonderful full-scale balcony on upper floor main bedroom. Gardens were interesting with views of interesting river at its end and it was situated on private road gently leading to beaches, walks to Rockcliffe and to a good bar and restaurant. The owner couldn't have been more helpful with e-mails providing extra information we needed. All 6 of us in the family simply loved it and are likely to be back.

“Amazing house”

What a house, we all loved it and hope to return one day. It's full of character and is so spacious, we have two lively boys and even they couldn't fill this house. Whilst we were there we witnessed the beautiful views and beach in sunshine but also watched the winds battering the sea against the shore, fantastic, particularly when tucked up inside nice and warm.

This is a well equipped holiday home with lots of quirky features! The garden is a sun trap and the views over the estuary facinating. we took 2 large four legged friends with us and they adored the enclosed garden where they spent most of the week. From my point of view I would have loved a shot of the Aga, but unfortunately it was off for the summer( rightly so), so maybe a return in the winter!
