“Perfect for weekend, weeks and the fortnight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We only stayed the weekend, however my inlaws are still there and are staying the rest of the week. We only came because of work/university commitments.

Fantastic location - tranquil location with little quaint country pubs nearby.
Fantastic pool/park/duck pond for the kids to keep them entertained and tired our little boy out - perfect for early nights and long uninterrupted sleeps.

Staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

Perfect place just to relax and unwind

Room Tip: We were on room 45 which was really spacious and had the best corner bath ever

My wife and I visited Thurnham Hall this Autumn. We had a wonderful stay. The amenities and grounds were splendid. Whilst there, we visited several local sites and spend a day in the Lake District and another day in the Yorkshire moors. We wished we could have spend more time there. Overall, a great holiday!

We truly enjoyed our week here. Tranquil, scenic, historic, very helpful staff, and good food. A bit of a trek from Southern CA to London to Lancaster area, but oh, the beauty and richness that awaited us. We were glad to have had the opportunity to visit this part of England.

Just come back from a 4 day break at Thurnham Hall. Everything was perfect!!! We stayed in an elite 2-bedroom apartment away from the main hall BUT it was superb - very modern and well appointed. The hall itself is magnificent with a very chequered history - they do a great talk and tour which is very interesting. The food in the restaurant cannot be faulted and you get very generous portions at a reasonable price. The hall is well situated for exploring the area - on Tuesday we walked on the canal side in glorious sunshine although the canal itself was frozen over and also spent a day in Kendal. Will definitely go back.

We booked Thurnham through our holiday points - We booked 3 apartments for 6 of us, one was in the main house, one was in the Dower House and one was in Woodland view. All of the apartments were exceptionally well appointed and equipped (as you would expect from DRI) The rooms were spacious and very well looked after. The whole resport is wonderful, the staff are very helpful nothing is too much trouble at all. The bar prices are pretty reasonable but the only small crititism is that you can't put your bar bill or restaurant bill on your room as they are both franchised (didn't stop us eating and drinking there though) this time of year there is a roaring fire in the Great Hall and it is lovely to sit in front of it. The grounds are nice to walk around too an you soon get used to the morning wake up from the ducks.
Plenty of great places to eat locally including the Mill. We ate at the onsite restaurant and the food was lovely.

I stayed at Thurnham with my wife, some friends and my 2 year old granddaughter. I booked this through my holiday points scheme. I am used to the standard offered through this scheme and this occasion was just as I expected... First class. I am aware that some of the rooms have been upgraded and when I was told that none of these was available I was a little disappointed. However, the two bed apartment ( suite) that was allocated was fantastic. Ok there were some small marks on the carpet and the kitchen wasn't of the latest design, but everything you could possibly need for self-catering was there and in great condition.
The rooms in the apartment were very large comfortable and full of character. Thurnham Hall is steeped in history and has a bar, restaurant, pool etc as well as extensive grounds. It is well placed for visiting the Morcambe Bay- South Lakes areas. Don't miss the smoke house at Glasson Dock, the South African cuisine at the Stork or the fine dining at The Mill, all of which are less than a 10 minute drive away.
If you are visiting with children who are looking for on-site adult led activities, I think you may well be disappointed, but there are lots of outdoor activities not so far away.
Looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The suite in Room 14 at the top of the front of the house is fantastic.
