Excellent location — rated 9.5/10! (score from 89 reviews)
Real guests • Real stays • Real opinions
The house was built as an amazing summer home for wealthy industrialists, then became a childrens hospital, then a home for adults with special needs, then a nursing home, then my home where I do b&b. Breakfast is from 8.30am - 9.15am and guests are welcome to bring their own drinks to enjoy at the house as I'm not licensed. Unless you're quite determined, it's probably too far to walk to the pub for dinner as it's about 3 miles each way to the nearest in Aysgarth and Askrigg. Thornton Lodge has one of the most peaceful locations in Wensleydale and is a great location to unwind in. It's also more suited to people who don't really like the concept of boutique hotels as we spent an awful lot of money creating an authentic environment rather than going down the boutique route.
