We had a wonderful stay. The location is simply stunning. The view of the sunset was one of the best! The house is so interesting and is a perfect example of the arts and crafts style. The pictures are a good representation, but there is much more to the house. Yes it is a little faded around the edges, but it has so many original features and is in such a commanding location that it just doesn't matter.
I would like to thank the owners for allowing us to share their wonderful house. They are very lucky and it obvious that it means allot to them.
We nearly completed the Taj Mahal jigsaw too, which is unusual for us to have the time to do things like this. But eventually we ran out of time. However, we have now bought the same one!
This is a beautiful, spacious fascinating house.. as soon as we opened the door we loved it! So full of character and so homely and welcoming. Spectacular views from conservatory and from the balcony on the 2nd floor. Mature well laid out gardens just yards from the shoreline. Lovely walk into village of Kippford where you can enjoy a local bar meal. Beautiful coastal walk into nearby village of Rockcliffe .
Thornleigh house is absolutely amazing. Our family and grandchildren loved it. They had fun exploring the shoreline , right on the doorstep.... rockpools with crabs ...and collecting shells. Everything is provided. Home from home. There is outdoor seating in the most beautiful , mature gardens where you can watch amazing sunsets or just watch the tide rolling in. A balcony to enjoy the views. Plenty parking for several cars. Private garden overlooking the sea. Spectacular!!! We really didn't want to leave. Thank you.
Thornleigh is an incredible house, full of character, Comfortable and well equipped with a beautiful garden. The views from Thornleigh are breath taking and the location is amazing. We will definately stay again.
We spent three nights in this gorgeous old house. It was extremely spacious with more room than we thought there would be. We were four adults and three children and we still felt as if we were rattling around in it!
Really safe enclosed garden for the kids and a 15minute (safe) walk to the pubs in the village, both of which are lovely - one has a big outdoors playing frame for the kids, which aided our uninterrupted dining!
The house was warm and clean and well appointed and we had everything we needed. The photos don't do it justice! Although some bits of the house are in need of a wee update or spruce up, it was very clean and suited us well. We're not ones to retrace our steps, so to speak, but if we were, we'd definitely look to book this house again.
We were extremely lucky with the weather and had a super holiday. Thanks a million!
