“Fantastic”

We booked this place for a family getaway and with 9 adults and 2 children this house had everything that we required and more. With good size bedrooms and a king size main bedroom there was plenty space. Very large kitchen and dining area with a separate utility room. The house is situated in a very quiet area and has a garden that goes all the way around the house. Outside seating on a decking area and a summer house. This house was perfect in every way for a large group and everything was catered for. Parking for 4 cars and friendly neighbours what more can you ask for. FANTASTIC!

“Fabulous place to stay”

This is a great house for a large group. We stayed for a family holiday and it was a great place, with lots of space.

The house is nice and warm and the hot water plentiful. It has a great kitchen diner for self catering and a good sized lounge. The master bedroom has fabulous views.

The house is a short walk to Arnside and there are lots of great touristy things to do in the local area. Theres a great walk up to Arnside Knott with great views

“Fantastic week in a fabulous house”

Thornfield is a fabulous house for a large group which is well equipped and in a fantastic location. A proper home from home offering comfort and style. How often do you stay somewhere only to find the kitchen is just short of a pan or the knives are blunter than an irritable teenager? Not here. Sleeps 12, you can feed 12 and there is enough space to not feel cramped. We had smally children in the group who loved the attic room which was well stocked with books and games and even in February the garden looked lovely.

The house is within a short walk of Arnside Knott, reached by climbing through woods,which gives great views of the area and a reasonable stroll takes you downhill to the town and promenade.

Arnside is only 40 or so minutes from Windermere and Ambleside giving easy access to the southern lakes and fells which in an unseasonably dry and sunny February week meant a great place to stay was topped off by fantastic walks.

The owners responded quickly to a query we had about internet and wifi (we are all teenagers at heart these days) and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Thank you.

Would happily return, in fact we didn't want to leave.

“Brilliant house for a family get together”
Reviewed January 12, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

A very warm and welcoming house. Central heating is super efficient so a very cosy stay too. Booked the house for New Year for 11 family members and we couldn't have had more fun! Claire had put up Christmas trees in the kitchen and living room so everything looked very festive. Beds were super comfortable so we all slept well too. The kitchen was really well equipped and we often sat at the huge table just chatting. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

“Gorgeous Home”
Reviewed December 16, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We have recently returned from a wonderful stay at Thornfield for my fiancés 30th Birthday. The house had more than enough room for a family of 11 (8 adults and 3 babies) the facilities were fantastic and the house was roomie yet cosy at the same time! I would highly recommend staying here if you plan to visit Arnside. Claire the owner was extremely helpful and responded to any queries immediately. Thank you very much!

“Great house for a larger family/cottage”
Reviewed July 28, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Located in a quiet filmed sac surrounded by other houses, has a wrap round garden which is well maintained. Tree swing rope, pond, various sitting areas, summerhouse a hit with the younger members of the family. Outdoor playing games also in the summerhouse to use. There was ten of us in the party including a dog. House even when fully occupied wouldn't be cramped. Very spacious, rooms huge . Cleaned and maintained to a decent standard. Parking for four vehicles. Great place to play hide and seek in on a wet day! Decent equipment provided and furnishings. Downstairs smelt foisty and after having a shower in the downstairs shower room floor was full of condensation and wet. Shame as such a lovely house don't want damp to develop in the long run as a result of this. Good location
