On arrival at Thornton Lodge we were welcomed like long lost friends, Vanessa is a very special lady and her love of this house shines through. We have stayed in many hotels over the years but we can honestly say we have never had a nicer room. It was huge, beautiful, and had everything you could wish for and looked out over an amazing view. For anyone with limited mobility like my wife this really is an accessible room. The excellent breakfasts were served with a smile, nothing was too much trouble, and we certainly did not need lunch!
We certainly intend to return and would thoroughly recommend Thornton Lodge to anyone wanting to stay in the Wensleydale area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Thornton Lodge is a family home in Upper Wensleydale. Vanessa lives there with her family and offers b&b during the summer and has a 5 star gold rating from Visit Britain. All rooms are different, pleasantly decorated with very comfy beds and nice views and there are lots of pictures of each room on her website. She cooks a really nice breakfast. The house has some wifi but it varies from room to room as the walls are so thick. It is extremely quiet at the house, especially after the loss of her pet peacock Percy during the summer of 2015. She is not licensed but encourages guests to bring their own drinks to enjoy at the house and provides glasses and fridges with a pint of milk in all rooms. One room is reserved for guests with mobility difficulties and two rooms are allocated for guests needing single occupancy. Children over 14years of age are welcome at the house in her large ground floor room. In winter she sometimes hosts for guests celebrating special events. Generally she avoids taking bookings to stay at the house just for one night. Whilst the house is huge - around 9000sqft, Vanessa works on her own and therefore restricts the number of rooms booked at anyone time to a maximum of 12 guests - generally there are 6-8 guests staying during the week and a few more on a weekend. ... more less
