Thornton Lodge is a large country house in Wensleydale, offering 5-star B&B on a 'low key' basis. Rooms are incredibly comfortable and the host takes pride in ensuring her guests have a wonderful time exploring the area. She also makes lovely jams and marmalades to try at breakfast time.

What makes a stay at Thornton Lodge unique?

Thornton Lodge is unique because the host has resisted all calls to turn her lovely 5-star home into a hotel, preferring to offer personal B&B to those who realise they can stay in such a beautiful and comfortable 5-star environment for a fraction of the cost of staying at one of the hotels in the area. The house is incredibly quiet and a real joy to those who are looking for a peaceful base from which to explore the area as an independent traveler.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Thornton Lodge?

The rooms at Thornton Lodge are all individual and differ in size. All have extremely comfortable sprung mattresses and a wide range of facilities in keeping with a 5-star Gold award B&B. Each room has its own small quiet fridge and a large selection of hot drink options, with fresh milk provided. There is one room reserved for guests with mobility difficulties and this room has an ensuite shower room, the other rooms for 2 guests all have baths with a shower over.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Leyburn area?

Thornton Lodge is 11 miles west of Leyburn, only 2.5 miles from Aysgarth Falls and 7 miles from Hawes. Most guests staying at the house are visiting the area either to enjoy the many and varied local walks or to drive through the beautiful countryside. The host is happy to discuss plans for the day with guests at breakfast time and can provide lots of useful information for those visiting the area.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

There are a large number of places to eat just a short drive from Thornton Lodge. The nearby villages of Aysgarth and Askrigg have 5 places to eat at between them.

Review of Thornton Lodge

Posted on by Fred RCustomer stayed May 2012

I took my mother here for her 90th Birthday, she really enjoyed it. Brilliant service from Vanessa, very cosy and homely. Lovely décor in a top notch house.

I choose this hotel above the others due to the disabled access which is excellent.
