A wonderful country house in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. If you are looking for peace and tranquillity in a magnificent rural setting look no further. From beginning to the end of our stay we could have not been made more welcome.
We had our evening meals at the George and Dragon, some 4 miles away, in Asgarth and really enjoyed that as well!
For those looking for space Room 3 is the one for you, you will not be disappointed.
Breakfasts were brilliant; the rabbits on the lawns were entertaining and the family peacock was superb.
Thanks Vanessa for a wonderful stay.
- 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. She has a 5 star gold rating from Visit Britain and has been accepted as a prestigious Wolsey Lodge. All rooms are different, pleasantly decorated with very comfy beds and nice views and there are lots of pictures on her website. She cooks a really nice breakfast and can sometimes cook an evening meal for guests by arrangement. The house has some wifi but as the last one on the exchange in a rural area it's only slow. 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 either fridges or wine coolers in all rooms. One room is reserved for guests with mobility difficulties and two rooms are allocated for guests needing single occupancy. Children over 8 years of age are welcome at the house in her large ground floor suite. 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 does everything herself 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
