A very warm and welcoming house. Central heating is super efficient so a very cosy stay too. Booked the house for New Year for 11 family members and we couldn't have had more fun! Claire had put up Christmas trees in the kitchen and living room so everything looked very festive. Beds were super comfortable so we all slept well too. The kitchen was really well equipped and we often sat at the huge table just chatting. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
We have recently returned from a wonderful stay at Thornfield for my fiancés 30th Birthday. The house had more than enough room for a family of 11 (8 adults and 3 babies) the facilities were fantastic and the house was roomie yet cosy at the same time! I would highly recommend staying here if you plan to visit Arnside. Claire the owner was extremely helpful and responded to any queries immediately. Thank you very much!
Located in a quiet filmed sac surrounded by other houses, has a wrap round garden which is well maintained. Tree swing rope, pond, various sitting areas, summerhouse a hit with the younger members of the family. Outdoor playing games also in the summerhouse to use. There was ten of us in the party including a dog. House even when fully occupied wouldn't be cramped. Very spacious, rooms huge . Cleaned and maintained to a decent standard. Parking for four vehicles. Great place to play hide and seek in on a wet day! Decent equipment provided and furnishings. Downstairs smelt foisty and after having a shower in the downstairs shower room floor was full of condensation and wet. Shame as such a lovely house don't want damp to develop in the long run as a result of this. Good location
Location is good for walks with short walk to village. Good pub near by and fabulous fish and chips on front of promenade Good for touring with a lovely garden for barbacues and child friendly, the grandchilden had a great time exploring the garden.
The house is absolutely beautiful. It has both character and all the modern facilities that one would need, particularly for a large group.
There were enough bathrooms and toilets and all 9 male guests were able to sleep in a separate bed.
The decked patio is great for sitting outside and the big dining table was perfect for cards as well as eating and drinking.
Great little BBQ area too with all the equipment you need.
In 8 years our walking group has never gone back to any house we have rented but this one might be the exception!
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!
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.
