Set in a rural setting the accommodation is superb. The room was very large and had views to both the front and rear gardens. The en-suite was very big with excellent shower etc, and all was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was 1st class with fresh fruit cereals and a great full english breakfast that almost stumped me, which is very unusual....

After a long day walking we received a warm welcome, luckily for us we were given the family room - a large clean spacious room with an ensuite containing a jacuzzi style bath. There were tea/coffee facilities and a range of toiletries available including feminine hygiene products showing how thoughtful the owner is. The animals who live at Thornybank are...

We arrived on a Friday evening after a long drive to be greeted by Ronica! A very friendly welcome! A warm sweet smelling arrival in to the building we quickly felt at ease as our host made a fuss of our dogs! We were shown to our rooms and asked what time we would like breakfast, not told when it...

We came from Cambridgeshire in search of quality, luxury accommodation, wonderful breakfasts, peace and quiet and friendly hosts. And my goodness we hit the jackpot! Ronica is a lovely honest lady ( cannot stress the LADY too much) who welcomed us into her beautiful comfortable HOME ....not a run-of-the-mill guest accommodation. The lady and her gorgeous dog Jennifer see to...

We recently had a lovely weekend break at Thornybank, we had the Poppy Room, which was very clean and comfortable. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had a great choice, I went for the fresh fruit and yogurt, followed by a full English, all cooked in front of your very own eyes. All in all a lovely...

I am absolutely appalled how I was spoken to on the phone when I was phoning to ask if they had any availability for our friends to stay!!! This woman does NOT even deserve 1 star for those bad manners 😠

Thornybank, Owner at Thornybank, responded to this review

I don't know who you spoke to when you phoned, unless it was one of my staff who are very respectful. None of us are very happy to take calls after 8pm as this is the owners only time off or during breakfast when we are trying to get everyone fed on time.
