Desperately needing a short break and were lucky to get booked in for three nights at Thorntonloch House. Know and love the area, but unable to camp at the site below the House this summer as we have done for several years, so were delighted to get a "fix" of this wonderful place with its great beaches, oodles of space, great wildlife, good food and great people. Linda's previous reviews are no exaggeration. We had the pleasure of the big ( i.e. big enough for 2 double beds, a sofa, space to spare, one of the best en suite showers ever and a spa bath!) room with the bay window - literally! - great view of the bay and the chickens pottering happily in the garden. Happy chickens make for happy eggs, and breakfast was delicious and couldn't have been fresher. It came with the added bonus of some great and fun conversations with a lady whose open, unpretentious and relaxed style was a real pleasure and who could teach a few folk how to make guests feel at home. Arrived as strangers, felt we left as friends. Thanks Linda - feel all the better for our time out at Thorntonloch.
