An absolute gem of a place! A stunning house, garden and views. There were walks of all abilities straight from the door. Couldn't have found a better place!
Mrs Sergeant

The house was amazing; intimate enough to accommodate 10 adults and a well behaved dog, however space for us not to be tripping over each other. All six bedrooms were fabulous, not to be argued about and the dining room/kitchen was the centre of our few days away.
Mrs Simon

As a group of ten friends who meet up once a year (5 couples and a well behaved dog). We stayed for a long weekend, some the extended week minus kids. We had a brilliant time, the weather was wonderful and we managed to eat alfresco a few times. However even if the weather hadn't have been on our side the house had a wonderfully large dining table which was well used as well as the goldfish bowl sized wine glasses by us ladies. Tetley, our dog, particularly enjoyed the beautiful garden and chased his ball and the odd peasant around. Non of the couples disagreed about the six bedrooms. With three bathrooms we never waited long. There are great walks in a wonderful part of the world, fablocal pubs and friendly locals. Claire the owner was super helpful before we arrived and the box of books, maps and blue bible was used extensively! As the previous comments made, visitors to Thornfield will not be disappointed, 5 stars all the way and all of us would come back again.

The house is just lovely! We had a brilliant time and were all very comfortable throughout our stay. It had comfy beds, the best shower was in the basement and there was a lovely big open plan kitchen/dining room. It was hard to prise our two young nieces from the attic room which they loved playing in.
Mrs Mulchrone

As a group of nine we stayed her for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The large kitchen and dining room were a big hit , the kitchen is well equipped with decent sized glasses (we had the odd drink) large fridge and ice-maker. The sitting room has lovely views over the garden and the estuary and is a nice place to relax. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very well appointed. The master bedroom is really impressive. The nearest pub (The Albion) is 0.7 miles away, serves well-kept beer and a good Sunday lunch. Visitors to Thornfield will not be disappointed. Recommended.
