    Jane made sure we had lots of ideas of things to do and even got timetables for the boat and bus out ready for us. She also was able to recommend good places to eat. Very friendly and helpful.

    We came back from Thornbank last week after a fantastic long weekend celebrating our 10th Wedding anniversary. It was positioned near to both Windermere and Bowness so going out for dinner and drinks was very easy. Our room was lovely and spacious and breakfast was just lovely. Mark and Jane were very warm and friendly welcoming us and offering lots of help with places to go and places to eat. Thank you so much - Vicky and Chris

    The En-suite was spacious and the shower was fantastic. The bed was incredibly comfy and we really enjoyed a good nights sleep. The hotel was a perfect location being only ten minutes from Bowness. The quality of food for breakfast was fantastic and a great way to start your day!!

    The room was clean, tidy and beautifully decorated. The en suite was also well maintained, and could not be faulted. Breakfasts were promptly prepared by Mark, and were always to a very high standard with a good choice of menu available. I also sensed that they may be prepared to cater for "one off" items if their workload permitted. The location is well within walking distance of the local attractions, and I have no hesitation in recommending Thornbank, and would not hestitate to stay with Mark and Jane again.

    The only not so good experience was getting into and out of the adjacent car park! Reversing uphill through an arch could present some challenges to those not used to driving regularly, or perhaps lacking confidence in close maneuvers!

    A very warm welcome and a spotlessly clean room make this guest house an excellent choice. There was a good choice of fruit, yogurt and cereal with the well cooked breakfast. We shall look forward returning.

    We stayed at Thornbank for one night, Jane was waiting to meet us and show us to our bedroom which was lovely and had everything we needed, We had a lovely breakfast with plenty of choice, Janes home made marmalade was the icing on the cake

    We were only there for one night

    I am very impressed by Mark and Jane. They totally serve their guests with their whole heart. I am sure that they are really enjoy in operating the guest house. I love to spend my holidays with our kids in Room 7. Hope the water heater will be better next time :))

    Great location, very helpful staff, lots of info.

    Top room was very hot with unseasonally hot weather. One tip would be to keep the blinds & curtains closed during the day.

    - Good location , well placed between Windermere and Bowness. - Decor of the rooms was excellent. Extremely neat and clean. - Jane and Mark are kind and helpful hosts. - Kids loved Molly , their 2 year old pet dog. - Nice, piping hot breakfast

    Breakfast timing specified by the property tended to become restrictive since the children wanted to wake up at their pace.

    Great location with parking available on street & on-site. Friendly owners. Comfortable bed. Great dossiers of local information provided to guests. Good breakfast.

    Room & ensuite were very small & a little stuffy. Hordes of tourists & constant traffic in the area.

    owners were welcoming and pleasant, breakfast was also good.

    Overpriced, small room and not worth the money. Stayed in area before for much less and better value

    The guest house is right inbetween Windermere and Bowness so it was quick to walk to either town. The breakfasts were always of excellent quality, and there was always lots of it which was a bonus. The owners, Jane and Mark, were very friendly and helpful. They provided lots of information on the surrounding area with directions of walks from their doorstep. We would definitely stay here again!

    We would have liked the bedroom curtain to block out more light.

    Great location. Walking distance to Windermere and Bowness on Windermere villages. Easy to access other lakes from here also. Accomodation was clean and tidy with fresh linen and towels supplied everyday.

    Beds were not comfortable. Accompdation was expensive. There was not enough variety of food for breakfast and breakfast time was limited.

    Thornbank is in a great location, being 10 minutes walk from both Bowness and Windermere where there's a great choice of activities during the day along with good pubs and restaurants. What made the stay at Thornbank even better were the owners, who made a real effort to make sure we had a great stay with them, from cooking great breakfasts to giving us lots of info on things to do and places to eat in the area. I'd recommend Thornbank to anyone going on a trip to Windermere!
