As a cosy, comfortable home from home, Thistledowne was just what we hoped for. Plenty of room for three of us and very well equipped, especially the kitchen. On arrival, it was beautifully presented and the shower was bliss after a day out walking on the beaches! The location was perfect, close to the harbour front, university and the coast - plus the neighbourhood was very peaceful, even though it is only a short walk/ride to the city centre and main foodstores/retail park. The National Glass Centre is minutes away and well worth a visit.
Thank you Pam for your excellent hospitality, catering for our specific needs and the great communication - all you need to know is provided in a guest email link, which made the whole process very smooth indeed. We look forward to returning in the future.
Excellent. The house is clean and well furnished. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need including a decent set of kitchen knives. Even good weather was provided
Location couldn't be beaten within walking distance of sea, marina, glass museum and city centre. All this and peaceful and quiet as well.
Great quiet,peaceful lo.cation.short stroll to riverside and marina and a few minutes further to lovely beach.House is lovely with many homely touches.warm,comfortable and with everything you may need.lots of pubs,restaurants and takeaways close by.We stay at several properties during the year and this is up there with the best - home from home!
I was very impressed with this house. It was beautifully furnished and really cosy and comfortable. I really did feel as if i was in my own home. The kitchen was really well equiped with good quality pans etc. This was important for me as having family and friends in Sunderland i wanted to entertain them all together instead of everyone inviting me to their homes. The house is ideally situated. Easy access into the centre and near the marina so walking to the beach was no problem especially as the illuminations were on at the time and traffic was quite heavy. About 5 minutes walk to the National Glass Centre for afternoon tea and cake. Really did feel as though i was on holiday and not just a trip to Sunderland to see family. Will certainly rent this house again.

We stayed in this house for a weekend as I was taking part in the Great North Run.
House was immaculately clean and felt very homely.
We only stayed a few days, but everything you would need for longer was in the house.
Location was perfect, close to the marina and beaches if you fancy a nice walk.
Lots of nice restaurants close by and some good recommendations from the owner on the blog.
Really impressed with the service from the owners and wish them well in their new venture.
Would recommend as a great base for exploring the area. We will definitely stay again next year. :)
