We have been going tot the Thornbank twice a year for 12 years now and always made very welcome. It is situatued for days out and for good food at locals bistros and pubs. Mark and Jane are always happy to advise. Highly recommended!

From the booking, to arrival, to checking out, Thornbank was fantastic! The hosts Jane & Mark made us feel very welcome & allowed us to really enjoy our 3 night stay. The room was clean, and had everything you needed (en-suite, TV, kettle, wardrobe, radio) the breakfasts were great and plentiful, and all at a very reasonable rate. Plus the extension for you to get the most out of your stay by providing walking route ideas, maps & guides as well as a great restaurant recommendation (Robertos) - was all very welcome. Lots of choices on to where to stay in Bowness, but you couldn't go wrong with Thornbank - take the word of two very satisfied customers!

We booked a very last minute stay in the Lakes and looking at other reviews booked Thornbank House. We were made to feel very welcome upon our arrival. We booked a family room for 2 adults and 2 children and our room was up in the loft of the house. It was spotlessly clean and quite spacious. A lot of choice for breakfast and very tasty indeed. We would recommed this accodomation to anyone. It is situated ideally between Bowness and Windermere. The owers are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

We have just returned from staying two nights at Thornbank House, we found Mark and Jane really helpfull and pleasant from the moment I booked. The room was very clean and the decor was lovely, the bed extremely comfortable. The situation was great. We enjoyed the walks in the little booklet provided in the bedroom. The Restaurant recommendation excellent, we had a fantastic meal out on Friday night. We wanted to use the local buses and they provided us with a bus timetable, as I say they were extremely helpful and made our stay memorable.

  • Liked — Location, friendliness of owners.

My partner and I stayed here for three nights to do some Geocaching in the area.

The personal service we received whilst staying here from Jane and Mark was brilliant and we are very great full for their generosity and assistance.

The location for us was excellent. We were given lists of restaurants and walks which Jane and Mark had put together, these were really helpful.

Breakfast was lovely and set us up for each day, so much so we didn't need lunch.

Our room (room 4) was lovely, the bed was very big and comfortable, it was decorated very nicely and had an en-suite bathroom.
