We recently stayed at Thornton Lodge on our first holiday in the Yorkshire Dales. The lodge is a beautiful, traditional building, with great character. Our hostess Vanessa, gave us a warm personal welcome on arrival, and the accommodation was first class in every way. The service was excellent, and nothing was too much trouble. Add to this the beautiful scenery, the quiet country walks, and the friendly Yorkshire people, and you have the perfect country retreat. We will certainly be coming back, and recommend Thornton Lodge as a great place to stay.
