We stayed Thornton Lodge for 1 weeks it looked good on the web site but when we arrived they hadn’t just shown the good bits on the web site it was simply stunning inside and out. The pictures cannot show the tranquil setting in the middle of beautiful countryside. We where warmly received by Vanessa who ensured we enjoyed our stay. The large room was very tastefully decorated and furnished with period furniture. We enjoyed the feeling of living in a big country mansion without feeling the stuffiness sometimes found in these places. The communal areas were large allowing us to mix in comfort with friends and new acquaintances .
We have already booked to return later in the year.
Value for money is exceptional having stayed at many other places at twice the cost and not a patch on Thornton Lodge.

This was my 4th visit to Thornton Lodge - I am totally in love with the place. Location perfect, bulding magnificent and well maintained throughout, rooms (I have stayed in three different ones) all equipped to a high standard including White Company toiletries, ambience very relaxing and welcoming, Vanessa (the owner) always very welcoming and will do anything in her power to make guests feel at ease and at home, breakfast typical Yorkshire fare with excellent selection, grounds very well maintained, price extremely competitive for the standard of accommodation received. By far the best hotel in the area.
Overall, I would urge everyone to visit this haven of tranquility. I now feel like this is my second home and Vanessa a FRIEND :)

We love the yorkshire dales and I wanted a hotel hidden away from the world in a way, which is what we got with thornton lodge I cant fault the location the grounds or the hotel room which was fab although we did not have a dvd in our room or ironing board or robes or hair dryer as per the website states for the four poster room. There is also a limited amount of things to do in the hotel, there is no bar which we knew before we went so as per the owners words you can bring your own drinks, the hotel does not offer any outside tables and chairs for good weather, there is no where to sit which we thought especially following this weekends weather was poor that could be because of the pen foul (peacocks) the owner keeps.

Overall the hotel is more a place to sleep rather than the whole package, you are left to your own devices with no one from the hotel around during the day which some people may like. The rooms are very quiet and peaceful.

My review is more a constructive help rather than anything else.

We can confirm that our four poster room contains all of the items listed upon our website. Thornton Lodge has a huge guest lounge and sun room for guests to relax in and does also have a number of pre-existing benches within the grounds for use by guests. Thornton Lodge is a five star silver rated bed and breakfast and does not advertise itself as an hotel.
