One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in - wonderful, huge rooms furnished with gorgeous antique furniture, even had peacocks roaming the grounds. Lovely breakfasts and a good, plentiful banquet in the evening. Very accommodating host who did everything possible to make our party weekend one to remember. An excellent property in a lovely location. Highly recommended.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Thornton Lodge is a 5 star gold award, luxury country house offering b&b with dinner by arrangement in Wensleydale. Located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, it is surrounded by beautiful scenery and lovely views. An ideal base for walking or touring the Dales the house is particularly enjoyed by those seeking peace and tranquillity. Serving local food wherever possible, breakfasts are wonderful and my simple home cooked dinners for guests unable to journey out for dinner are very popular, served in a beautiful oak panelled dining room. Dinner is only available by prior arrangement and takes the form of a set meal - it is not available on Sundays, Wednesdays or certain 'family' days. Rooms are large, airy and very comfortable with lovely views. Whilst we are not licensed we welcome guests to bring their own drinks and have fridges or wine coolers in all bedrooms. Although we have 9 rooms we usually have 4-6 rooms of people staying which makes for a lovely atmosphere in the house and allows me to do so much myself. please see the summary from our visit england tourism inspection of 15/8/2013Thornton Lodge is a well presented property that continues to generally offer a very high standard of excellent overall accommodation maintained to a very high standard for which the Proprietors are to be congratulated.
