Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely bungalow with excellent view of the sea. Only downside was the noisy heating system at night. July 2012.
  2. Blue Anchor is VERY quiet - don’t expect to do much other than watch the sea and walk the coast. Smugglers’ pub is good for food, dogs and children and Driftwood cafe is good value for daytime snacks. The view from Thornby is lovely and the garden would be great to use during good weather however the conservatory is a big bonus - we spent a lot of time in there. The rooms are big and the furniture comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space. June 2012.
  3. Thornby is a beautiful property. Well laid out, beautifully located with stunning views of the sea, the hills, Dunster Castle and spectacular sunsets. Highly recommended and incredibly relaxing stay. March 2012.
  4. Property is in a very good location, beautiful views of the somerset steam railway. The driftwood cafe serves good food at a reasonable price. Aug 2011.
  5. A lovely positioned cottage for viewing the train and sea and secure garden for the dog. Aug 2011.
  6. Beautiful location and lovely property. The photos of the property don’t do it justice, its much nicer than the details shown on the website. Having a steam railway on the doorstep was also a big plus especially with our 7 and 8 year old children,we visited some really lovely places during the week and could have done more. Would definitely recommend this property. April 2011.
  7. The holiday accommodation was spacious and clean, with everything we needed. There were even dog bowls provided. The view was excellent and the conservatory was provided with a heater for the colder weather. We would definitely like to stay at Thornby again. Feb 2011.
  8. Spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly want down to the smallest detail. Nov 2010.
  9. The situation and sun lounge with views was much appreciated. (Sometimes accommodation is surrounded by trees or buildings) As an older person, a place to relax and admire the scenery at the day’s end enhances the holiday enormously. Sept 2010.
  10. Spaciousness, dishwasher, conservatory, near sea. Sept 2010.
  11. The cottage was like home from home. Very clean and spacious and everything was thought of. Location was excellent with fantastic views. Everything a holiday should be! Aug 2010.
  12. A great location. Sea and countryside views. Quiet and relaxing. July 2010.
  13. Really comfortable, well furnished coast property. Excellent views over Blue Anchor bay. Would definitely return for another visit. May 2010.
  14. Quiet, peaceful and beautiful location. Very comfortable bungalow. May 2010.
  15. Quiet enclosed garden. April 2010.
  16. Very comfortable accommodation in a quiet location with beautiful views, perfect for relaxing, but with plenty to do within a short drive. A problem with the television is being addressed, I understand. The caretaker is charming and extremely helpful. Oct 2009.
  17. Location and layout. Aug 2009.
  18. The tide was out all day every day, which was brilliant for our kids. Aug 2009.
  19. Very well equipped cottage with conservatory overlooking coast and steam railway line. Enclosed garden and proximity to beach make it ideal for young families. Aug 2009.
  20. Secure garden, conservatory and separate shower. Excellent location, very good for pets. TV is only issue, very poor reception. July 2009.
