Excellent value and service in a nice location

I required a small cottage for a weekend stay, and this was in a good location on the outskirts of Richmond and good value. Service was excellent with milk in the fridge and mince pies on the table when we arrived!

Home from home!

From the welcoming bottle of wine one the table when we arrived, we knew that we were going to enjoy this break, and were not disappointed! It was a beautiful bungalow, with lovely views out over rolling fields and hills, so tranquil. We have visited Richmond many times before, but never stopped in a holiday home there and were 'over the moon' with the cottage for location and a comprehensive list of fixtures/fitttings. The owners were ever so friendly(next door) but without that 'big brother is watching you' attitude! Truly a lovely holiday home which we will return to, if we may, Thank you on behalf of my wife and I.

An absolutely lovely stay here in such a beautiful part of the world...pat and ron are great. Two bedrooms bathroom kitchen living room off road parking...everything you need!


The bungalow was very well equipped and everything worked! The owners live just next door and we were told if we needed anything just to knock on their door and ask.We had a lovely weekend break although we would have liked to stay longer,in fact I could have lived in that little bungalow.

Mr Spence

The cottage was well placed for touring the area and was very well equipped. Richmond town centre was a reasonable walking distance away. The footpath next to the cottage provided a pleasant walk to Easby Abbey. The traffic from the main road was never intrusive. The garden was very pleasant for sitting in and at night was visited by bats.

Mrs Robeson

The friendly personal service from the owners who lived adjacent to the bungalow (a welcome note, bottle of Cava for our wedding celebrations, milk in the fridge, tea, coffee, sugar, filter papers, washing up liquid, paper towels, washing powder, bin bags and a personal visit to make sure we arrived ok).

The location, and the warmth and 'cosiness' of the cottage was top class. The owners living next door were there if we needed any thing and the welcome tray when we arrived after a long journey was very welcome. We look forward to returning to this property when we visit this area again.

One of the easiest holiday cottages I have booked. From first booking with yourselves, the experience was a pleasure. The owners were very friendly, living next door, nothing too much trouble for them, they were there if you needed them but not intrusive at all. A welcome pack was in the cottage to start the holiday which included a bottle of wine. It was a very enjoyable holiday, and a cottage I would use again.

Great bungalow in a fantastic location. Owners very helpful and welcoming. Highly recommended.

Mr Maguire

Excellent all round thanks to great owners. Thanks very much!

Mr Carlisle

As we had previously stayed at Thornlea before, we knew exactly what to expect of the cottage, and we were over the moon to be able to book it at quite short notice when most of the year is fully booked. The owners live next door but never make you feel as if Big Brother is watching you. A very enjoyable and stress-free break; we will definitely return!

Mr Farthing

Owners very friendly and helpful. Great starting place for touring The Dales. Tourist info free guided walk round Richmond and Dales trail leaflets were both excellent.
