Mark and Jane Hibbitt - owners
Thornbank Guest House is owned and run by Jane and Mark Hibbitt. We moved from Derby in 2002 - to escape the rat race - and have been at Thornbank since then. We pride ourselves on the personal service we offer all our guests and are very grateful for all the fabulous reviews we get. A very warm welcome is assured at Thornbank House.
We have 3 children. Mark is a fitness fanatic and Jane loves walking the fells with Molly their Tibetan Terrier.
10 minutes walk to a wide variety of lovely shops and restaurants. 15 minutes walk to Lake Windermere. Local bus service runs between Windermere /Bowness/ Ambleside /Grasmere / Keswick. Taxi from the station to Thornbank House takes less than 5 minutes. Free parking on site and on Thornbarrow Rd outside Thornbank House. Local walks taking up to 2 hours allow spectacular views of the Lake District Fells and the Lake from Thornbank House. This is a very low crime area - it is very safe.
