My husband and I have just spent 4 days staying at Thornton Lodge celebrating our wedding anniversary , we couldn't have been happier with our choice , the house is beautiful as are the grounds, Vanessa our host couldn't have been anymore helpful with sorting out our walks and where to go for dinner , our room was lovely as was the en suite we had a very large room with a four poster bed , I have spinal problems and sleeping anywhere other than our bed with Tempura mattress is always a problem for me , but happily the bed was really comfortable, Thornton lodge is spotlessly clean & you can certainly see that Vanessa takes great pride in her beautiful home , breakfast was a choice of cereal, fruit & yoghurt, full English, toast & preserves , Vanessa also makes a variety of home made jams , I tried rhubarb and vanilla , it was very yummy we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back again in a heart beat .
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Thornton Lodge is a family home in Upper Wensleydale. Vanessa lives there with her family and offers b&b during the summer and has a 5 star gold rating from Visit Britain. All rooms are different, pleasantly decorated with very comfy beds and nice views and there are lots of pictures of each room on her website. She cooks a really nice breakfast. The house has some wifi but it varies from room to room as the walls are so thick. It is extremely quiet at the house, especially after the loss of her pet peacock Percy during the summer of 2015. She is not licensed but encourages guests to bring their own drinks to enjoy at the house and provides glasses and fridges with a pint of milk in all rooms. One room is reserved for guests with mobility difficulties and two rooms are allocated for guests needing single occupancy. Children over 14years of age are welcome at the house in her large ground floor room. In winter she sometimes hosts for guests celebrating special events. Generally she avoids taking bookings to stay at the house just for one night. Whilst the house is huge - around 9000sqft, Vanessa works on her own and therefore restricts the number of rooms booked at anyone time to a maximum of 12 guests - generally there are 6-8 guests staying during the week and a few more on a weekend. ... more less
