I have no hesitation in giving Thornleigh Guest House 5 stars. It is in an excellent location, close to the main street for shopping and eating out, and with views of the mountains/hills around Keswick. But it is the hosts, Clare and David, that really make this a super place to stay. They were so friendly and attentive, from giving...

I traveled as a single female having never been to the lake district before and because of the hospitality of Clare and David, i will return. The bed was super comfortable, which is key after a day of hiking and the breakfast was perfect. Most importantly, every morning David and Clare made sure that i knew where i was going...

We were greeted by our hosts Clare and David as soon as we pulled up, first impressions count, we were not let disappointed in any way. The whole place was spick and span, nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast was very good. Will definitely book there again.

Decided to stay at a guest house instead of the normal hotel we have been to in previous years.(just so we could check out the local eateries). After trawling through many reviews I chose Thornleigh and was not disappointed at all. Very comfortable, clean, fabulous breakfast and every need met. Lovely hosts, Claire and David where nothing is too much....

Another fantastic relaxing weekend spent at the Thornleigh. Clare and David were as delightful as ever. Being northern its always a full english for breakfast, or cumbrian whilst here, but we were adventurous and the savoury stack and scrambled eggs and smoked salmon were delicious. Again, fantastic produce cooked and served perfectly. Once we are sorted with uni movements we...

We had another wonderful stay at the Thornleigh last weekend. Unfortunately the weather was poor but this was made up for by the beautiful breakfasts, comfy beds, great pubs and super company. Clare and David always ensure that you have the best possible stay and we certainly did. Will be back without doubt.

My wife and I stopped at Thornleigh recently and were met with the most warming welcome that I can remember from anyone by Clare & David. We were shown to our room (5) which was just perfect. It was spotless with a view to die for, though all rooms had a beautiful view. The breakfast room was again spotless and...

The hosts, Claire and David, couldn't be more helpful or friendly. The rooms are lovely, clean and comfortable with excellent views over the fells and the full Cumbrian breakfast is very good. This was our first stay, but it won't be our last. The excellent ratings Thornleigh has received are all thoroughly justified, in my opinion.

Our return to Thornleigh was as memorable as our first. David and Clare were yet again the perfect hosts going above and beyond that which you would expect of guest house proprietors. Our beautifully furnished room had a fabulously huge bed which was comfort itself and has unfortunately left me wanting my own upgrade at home! Thornleigh remains spotlessly clean,...
