Thorns Hall is one of the historic houses used by HF Holidays as a base for a walking holiday. It is superb in every respect. My room, in an annexe, was spacious and very comfortable with an excellent en suite. The main building has delightful lounges, a bar, a discovery room housing numerous maps and walking guides which can be...

One of the best HF houses. Great walking. Excellent food and service. The manager, David, could not have done any more to make our stay enjoyable. The food was a highlight of our holiday. The rooms seem to have been refurbished recently to a very high standard.

Lovely location - lovely room - friendly staff. Clearly, if your not a walker you do feel a little out of place. Communal dining is not for me. I'm not a morning person and didn't like making small talk with strangers over breakfast. Everyone talks about walking !! Short walk to the village . Super location and David the manager...

An ancient building, with a warren of corridors, many of the rooms outside the main building across the cobbled yard. Excellent, fresh food served in the beamed dining room at the top of the house. The freshest, most efficiently served breakfast I have experienced anywhere - no sooner was it ordered than it arrived! The manager's manner took a little...

An enjoyable weekend in Sedbergh which is a beautiful part of the UK for walking. Saw quite a few rooms which were excellent. Mine was a single room in the annexe, very small but totally adequate and very clean. Meals were of a good standard but ruined as they were served cold (breakfast) or luke warm (evening meal). Nice lounge...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dating from 1535, the small manor house of Thorns Hall retains its historic charm with wood-panelled public rooms, fireplaces and a cobbled courtyard outside. With an enviable location on the edge of Sedbergh, and surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, it's not surprising that many of our guests return year after year. ... more   less

“Some of the rooms are in buildings adjacent to the main hall - if you want to be in the main house in a premium room you need to request it.”

“This is a VERY old house so some of the rooms may be a little sloped or slanted. This was a problem for me as it made me feel a little dizzy. Management were very accommodating about moving me to a room without a slope. If this is a problem for you, you may want to ask ahead of time for a room without a slope.”
