  • "This was the third visit by our family to Thorndale."

    It is a beautiful & very well presented house in a great location with excellent all round facilities. The cleanliness was of an adequate standard but some areas had been overlooked, quite possible due to the heavy workload of the cleaner! We will definitely return in the future as this is one of our favourite properties in the area.

  • "The property we stayed in was lovely."

    High quality house and fittings. The house was in a super location for our group. A quiet residential area just off the main road and accessible on foot to lots of amenities. There was a slight problem with some cleanliness issues. The coffee table had sticky marks on it and there were quite a few crumbs in the kitchen and dinning room. Other than that we had a fabulous time and would have no hesitation recommending this property.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and we are glad you had a good time at Thorndale. We will ensure the cleaning team is being made aware of your comments and hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house in a great location."

    We were a group of 6 friends and the house had everything we needed. It’s a shame it was winter as the garden looked lovely.

    We are glad to hear you had a good time at Thorndale. Thank you for your lovely feedback. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous stay."

    The property was really special, loads of room for everyone, ultra comfy beds and great facilities. Thorndale is central to a lot of places without having to travel far and near lots of great eateries. Having nothing negative to say about Thorndale, a fantastic place to stay.

  • "Thorndale is a lovely house so comfortable and cosy."

    Beds very comfortable. Showers great. We would have liked cleaning things available. Paying as much as we did we thought we shouild have a bench spray, hand wash gel, something to clean the toilets, foil to protect trays when using the oven. We have had these things in other properties we have been to. We were on holiday and didnt expect to have to do shopping for these things in order to keep the place nice and clean. Otherwise everything was lovely. Awfull weather mind so fires were very welcome.

  • "We really loved the house, it is bright and spacious and very comfortably furnished and in a fantastic location."

    It has a lovely garden and furniture if the sun shines. Kitchen very well equipped with everything you need to prepare meals. The super king bedroom downstairs is very spacious with lots of storage. However we were a group of 2 couples and 2 children and the lovely larger bedroom upstairs that can be converted to a twin really is more suitable for a couple rather than 2 children. The third bedroom at the back is much smaller but better for children, we think it would work much better if this room had twin beds in it rather than a small double. Just a few niggles, the towel rail in the bathroom was loose and came off the wall and the shower screen in the bedroom upstairs kept coming off the rail and a few handles were missing on a chest of drawers. Apart from that it was great and if the beds were changed in the back bedroom for 2 children we would love to stay again.

  • "Beautiful house and fantastic location."

    We were disappointed that the garden furniture was bare with no cushions. I did contact the office before our holiday to ask if the cushions would be on the outside furniture and was told that they were not sure but would find out and get back to me with the answer. I never got question answered and it takes so long to get hold of the office on the phone. Also the bed on the top floor (the one without the en-suite) was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in, pillows were bad too. I ended up with a bad neck which worsened as the week went on, which really did put a downer on the holiday.
