    Thornbank is an excellent guest house with outstanding facilities and a very friendly staff. The services are over the top quality and the location very adequate.I would choose it again any time and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the Lake Distric.

    Half way between the villages of Windermere and Bowness, this is a very convenient location. The room was rather small but comfortable. There is parking and breakfast, but no common areas such as a lounge. WiFi worked well.

    Thank you Roger, for reviewing your stay. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. We did once have a guest lounge, however, it so so rarely used. It's also great to hear the wifi was up to scratch ! Best wishes Jane

    Had a great stay! The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Great location - midway between the train station and the lake and close to shops and restaurants. Mark and Jane were lovely and we very much enjoyed our stay!
