Great house for a larger family/cottage
Located in a quiet filmed sac surrounded by other houses, has a wrap round garden which is well maintained. Tree swing rope, pond, various sitting areas, summerhouse a hit with the younger members of the family. Outdoor playing games also in the summerhouse to use. There was ten of us in the party including a dog. House even when fully occupied wouldn't be cramped. Very spacious, rooms huge . Cleaned and maintained to a decent standard. Parking for four vehicles. Great place to play hide and seek in on a wet day! Decent equipment provided and furnishings. Downstairs smelt foisty and after having a shower in the downstairs shower room floor was full of condensation and wet. Shame as such a lovely house don't want damp to develop in the long run as a result of this. Good location

Great house with every conveinience
Location is good for walks with short walk to village. Good pub near by and fabulous fish and chips on front of promenade Good for touring with a lovely garden for barbacues and child friendly, the grandchilden had a great time exploring the garden.

Superb House
The house is absolutely beautiful. It has both character and all the modern facilities that one would need, particularly for a large group. There were enough bathrooms and toilets and all 9 male guests were able to sleep in a separate bed. The decked patio is great for sitting outside and the big dining table was perfect for cards as well as eating and drinking. Great little BBQ area too with all the equipment you need. In 8 years our walking group has never gone back to any house we have rented but this one might be the exception!

Great holiday in this fantastic house!
We have just returned home after a family holiday at Thornfield. The house is excellent in every way, spacious, spotlessly clean, well-equipped, comfortable and just right for our party of 7 adults & 3 children under 4 years of age. The large garden is lovely with plenty of space for games, bbq etc. The children loved the attic bedroom with all the toys. There is plenty to do in the area, with beautiful walks on the doorstep. We had a fantastic time and can't wait to return!

Just back from a long weekend staying here with our family. Excellent accommodation, very clean and tidy. The house is beautiful and the location was great to be able to walk into Arnside. Every chance we will return for another visit!
