With guaranteed parking in the centre of Keswick, spotlessly clean rooms - including a range thoughtful touches - and a breakfast fully deserving of the excellent reviews, you really cannot do better than Thornleigh. Clare and David are excellent hosts, welcoming and warm, with a comprehensive knowledge of the fells and many lesser known routes. We have been visiting Keswick...

Clare and David set a standard that all other B&Bs should aspire to. We stayed here as a base for hiking in the area, and it was perfect. David gave us some excellent suggestions about area walks, tailored to our specific interests and abilities. We were looking for something a little on the challenging side, so his recommendations were especially...

Another wonderful stay, Clare and David are wonderful hosts, its like going home, this was our second stay in 2 months.

Having posted several reviews on Thornleigh I am running out of superlatives, however the B&B is fully deserving of its 5 stars and if it was possible I would give it 6 stars.

From arriving on the Friday night to leaving on the Sunday morning, we couldn't have asked for more. Clare and David were so welcoming and full of information and recommendations. The guesthouse itself is lovely (immaculately clean!) and we really appreciated the tour Clare gave us when we got there. The breakfasts are AMAZING - we'd recommend the savoury stack,...
