Reviewed May 2017 Fantastic place This was my third visit to Thorney How and the welcome was just as warm. Taylor and Carolyn are exceptional hosts, all ways welcoming and friendly. The accommodation is of a high standard and set in beautiful surroundings. The rooms are clean and the showers are excellent. The home cooked meals on an evening are really tasty and filling. Myself. and several others were taking part in the annual Fred Whitton cycling challenge so Carolyn got up really early (5am ) to make us breakfast. Much appreciated Carolyn. I would definitely recommend Thorney How to anyone.

Reviewed June 2017 Fantastic Location We are a family of four and stayed in the bunkhouse as the ensuite rooms in the main house were all booked. The rooms were basic, as expected, but very clean as were the shared bathroom facilities. The location is fantastic, a short and scenic walk down into Grasmere - just beautiful The welcome was great, the dinner was very tasty and we enjoyed one or two local ales. We would definitely stay again.

Happy Family
