Many hotels and B&Bs claim they are quiet - this one really is. I rarely slept so well.

Our room was spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The lounge features large armschairs, books, magazines and a billiard table.

The owner was very helpful and had great ideas for sightseeing in the area. One the arrival day, we were warmly greeted with tea and cookies.

Our party took over the whole house and Vanessa made everyone extremely welcome, she served a delightful dinner and an excellent English breakfast. To top it all great value. The mobile reception for Vodafone works and there is free Wifi.

We stayed for two nights in the kingsize room 7 -fantastic views and the most comfortable bed ever! Vanessa was the perfect host - she has great knowledge of the local area and provides a wonderful breakfast in a very relaxed atmosphere.

We were 3 couples looking for somewhere special for a short break in the Yorkshire Dales. We stayed here on the 14th August, I stumbled across Thornton Lodge on a random internet search and how lucky were we. Venessa was really accomodating from the first telephone call, recommending the impressive Wensleydale Heifer and allocating us 3 lovely rooms for a one night stay. The house is fantastic, the rooms incredible and great value. There is a really nice lounge where we were allowed to consume our own drinks ( Fridge and glasses provided). The breakfast is as good as you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Would definitely stay here again, lovely host and beautiful accomodation. Thank you for posting my jumper back to me Vanessa.

Stayed here for two nights with my wife and we both have nothing but praise for the location, rooms and welcome from owner Vanessa, who could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The location would be difficult to beat - a stunning large country house with extensive grounds and complete with rabbits and wild fowl - while the rooms and breakfast were of a very high standard. With Hawes just a few miles down the road and the Aysgarth Falls close by, the lodge is ideally situated to explore the beauty of the Dales. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

thank you so much - especially for putting up some pics of my lovely room 4, which was picked on a bit by someone in a recent review, so it's great to feel the love for it again :)

It was so nice to meet you both and I loved overhearing how enthusiastically your gorgeous wife spoke about Hull and all the activities going on in the build up to being city of culture. x
