We had an extremely warm welcome considering we arrived later than planned, it it did not seem to troubleVal and Denis.. They wanted to make sure we had everything we needed, that we were comfortable. The log cabin was in the perfect position for our family including our young dog, so we could visit all the wonderful local villages and beaches. Val also recommended a local kennel, as we needed to put our dog in for one day while we visited York. We reluctantly had to leave after a week but would definitely be back.
Great location for exploring both local beaches and the North Yorkshire moors.. Booked this cottage many times and as usual we were very pleased with the warm welcome from the lovely owners, the facilities on offer and the great variety of local attractions.
The cabin was everything we expected and more warm and comfortable in lovely surrounding's.. We had a very relaxing holiday and look forward to going again, Val and Dennis was very friendly and approachable
Excellent property spotlessly clean.. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Cabin is warm and cosy, definitely recommend
Warm welcome from the owners and charming lodge which is very peacefully situated at the end of their (large) garden.. Very well built, in good condition inside and out and nicely appointed. Compact - it's a lodge - so galley kitchen with all you need but don't plan a major cooking adventure and the bathroom is cosy (literally given always on heated towel rail). Everything works as it should, no draughts, loads of very hot water, effective electric radiators, good bed linen and duvets. Good access to both coast and moors, with wide ranging views. Recommended.
This lovely quiet peaceful log cabin is just what you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy urban lifestyle..
Great holiday cabin in a lovely area.. Hope to return one day!
Booking through Sykes was an easy process too.
The only drawback was that the property was difficult to find as the drive is hidden from the road.. To be fair it was very foggy.
The cabin was clean and well equipped and Val and Dennis were lovely.
Would go again.
Excellent accommodation fantastic hosts val & dennis beautiful surroundings what more could you ask for

Lovely people and place..
Val and Dennis were very welcoming and extremely pleasent.. The accommodation was excellent. The garden very well kept. Nothing was to much from Val and Dennis. All in all perfect and more. We will be visiting again very soon.
Fabulous setting and the owners could not have been more welcoming or friendly. We really enjoyed our holiday and were sad to go home.
Fabulous cabin everything you'd require for a holiday. We love the place and the perfect hosts are lovely and friendly people. They are there if you need them would highly recommend this property.
A tranquil location with good access to inland and coastal places of interest, we are familiar to the East Coast but found new places to visit and eat because the owners were so very helpful but in no way intrusive. The Cabin is very well located, equipped and comfortable, we found everything we could have possibly needed for our stay. Looking forward to returning again and again.
The log cabin is situated in a wonderful area with great views.It was cosy and spotless with a huge lawn garden which our dog loved. We were just a short drive away to walk in the spectacular North Yorkshire moors , which we did lots of time. There was a good pub which did food a few minutes walk away which was dog friendly. The owners were lovely and helpful. An ideal position to get to coast and country.
Everything about our stay was fantastic, the lovely warm welcome to the moment we left. We will be returning.
Very comfortable accommodation with excellent hosts. Great setting, relaxed which is what we wanted. Good pub very close by and a good base to explore the region.
Great accommodation and very peaceful. Ideally located for exploring the coast and the moorlands.
The cottage was spotless and well equipped. The owners were very helpful and unobtrusive. The cottage was well situated and private.
An excellent log cabin, it was spotless, very comfortable and had everything you need. Had excellent hosts who were on hand if required, and fabulous grounds. Would go again, it was brilliant. Would recommend to family and friends.
Absolute peace and quiet, and a short distance to some lovely beaches. It was a lovely cabin set in a beautiful garden, with really nice owners who made us feel really welcome.
Excellent accommodation; very clean, warm and cosy. Enjoyed the relaxing surroundings. The owners are exceptionally welcoming and friendly. Our kids loved playing on the outdoor toys. There was a pub across the road and there are plenty of coastal and country locations to visit, although a car is a must.
In an excellent situation for discovering the surrounding area. It was a warm cosy cottage. The proprietors give a warm welcome and are on hand if you require anything.
Beautiful cabin in an excellent location. Absolutely perfect.
Nice, quiet location with a lovely garden for dogs to run about in. Lovely owners with plenty information. Will come again!
Great cabin with lovely owners. Beautiful setting. Very relaxing with lots of things to do near by. Great for our dog too.
The best property we have stayed in and the owners were really caring and friendly. Couldn't have been better.
We had a lovely time in Thornlea - a very peaceful place, beautifully maintained. The Owners are two very special people and so helpful. We liked the location because of its close proximity to places to visit. All in all I would have no hesitation in recommending Thornlea to family and friends and am sure they would find the place as welcoming as we did. We will be back for sure.
Lovely Log Cabin which was very clean and comfortable. Perfect for a touring base for the area. The owners were a lovely couple who were very helpful and informative.
Our stay was absolutely perfect. The cabin is spotless, comfortable and very well equipped. The garden is wonderful with views from all windows. The owners were friendly and welcoming with a wealth of knowledge to share about the area. The Watermill pub (about 100 yards away) is welcoming and dog friendly serving brilliant meals and fine ales. We were lucky to have sunshine all week which made our holiday better than we could have imagined. We will be back to Thornlea and have already recommended it to our friends.
Fantastic log cabin, clean and tidy, very peaceful area, friendly owners. Excellent all round, will definitely come back.
Great countryside setting and location. Lovely pub over the road serves great food. The property owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Everything was very clean and tidy and the log cabin was very comfortable. Will certainly visit again, and will recommend to friends and family.
Excellent log cabin in a beautiful setting. The owners were really nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 10 out of 10 from us.
The cabin is in a great location for visiting the area. It's just 20 minutes drive from the coast and about 45 minutes from Dalby Forest. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and finding milk, wine and biscuits in the fridge on arrival were a welcome and thoughtful surprise. The cabin itself was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for a perfect, relaxing stay. We ate in the local pub most nights where the service and food were good. They also welcomed our dog which was great. All in all a great cabin in a great location.
The location was perfect, the log cabin was immaculate and spacious and cool in the hot weather we had while we were there. The owners of the cabin were very lovely, very helpful and kind. The wine and chocolate biscuits in the cabin were a very nice surprise on our arrival.
Lovely situation, nice big garden and great hosts.
The property makes for an excellent base for travelling to the coast or the North Yorkshire Moors. The property owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The property is spotlessly clean. The pub is just two minutes walk across the road; the food and service are second to none and the staff are very accommodating and everyone is dog friendly. This was our second visit to this property and we will probably visit again.
The owner made myself and daughter feel welcome and not just a paying customer. The cabin was very clean and very warm. Just what you want in december. The dog was made welcome in the cabin and in the local pub. Would recommend using this log cabin to anyone. We will definately use this again in the new year.
The welcome given by Val on our arrival could not have been warmer, and she was justly proud of the cabin.
Even though it was a pet friendly cabin you would never have known any animals had ever been in it as it was scrupulously clean - not a dog hair in evidence. The cabin was far enough from the house to be completely private though near enough to pop over when we had any queries. The beds were so comfortable that a good night's sleep was guaranteed, and the roomy living area was very inviting. On the beautiful days we were lucky enough to have it was lovely to sit on the verandah in the early evening just listening to the birds singing.
Set in the countryside on the edge of the national park, both the open moors and the coast were within a few minutes drive. There was a good pet-friendly pub opposite and plenty of places to walk the dog in safety. The garden boasted a trampoline that was ideal for children, I was tempted to have a go myself but decided it might be a challenge too far!
I could find nothing to complain about in the cabin, it was a lovely place to stay and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone considering booking it for a break. The only possible negative would be that the garden is not fenced in at the front so the dog needed to be taken out on the lead at all times, but that is a very minor point and it wouldn't deter me from booking the cabin again.
The property makes for an excellent base for travelling to the coast or the North Yorkshire Moors. The property owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Property is spotlessly clean. The pub is just two minutes walk across the road; the food and service are second to none and the staff are very accommodating.
Absolutely fantastic place, we've been before and we will go again.
The little touches, like milk in the fridge and biscuits, on arrival really are appreciated.
The owners are so friendly and brilliant, offering buckets, spades and fishing nets for the kids. There's a swing set and trampoline to keep the kids amused and the verandah is great for eating and relaxing on a summer evening.
The amenities are brilliant.
Just a simply wonderful place to stay.
Very comfortable, easy to keep warm, great location for easy access to moors, national park and coast. The owners were very helpful and friendly.
Spotlessly clean, well appointed and equipped, relaxing location, fabulous hosts.
Another brilliant welcome and holiday from the proprietors. Not the first time we have been and it won't be the last. The little touches, like milk in the fridge on arrival etc. are very much appreciated.
An excellent break - with friendly owners.
The property is in a good area to visit the attractions that my family where interested in seeing.
Excellent, clean and comfortable accommodation in a great location for exploring the moors and the coast. We had a brilliant holiday, made even better by the lovely owners who made us feel very welcome. This was the best self -catering accommodation we have stayed in. Our young daughters loved it too - especially the trampoline! Would highly recommend!
The surroundings were very peaceful and lovely, and it was easy to access surrounding places. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It was a very relaxing holiday.
The property was just what we wanted for a quiet and romantic honeymoon. It was a fantastic place to stay and we wanted for nothing. The owners were lovely, helpful people and nothing was too much trouble. There were a lot of beautiful places to visit and some great places to go walking with our dog Shady!
The accommodation is purpose built for holidays and all the furnishings have been bought new for it. Much thought has been given to making it pleasing and very comfortable. The proprietors are lovely people and do everything they can to make the holiday a lovely one.
A beautiful setting with everything you need,lovely,clean accommodation and the couple who rent it are adorable !

Very nice owners who made you very welcome. Ideal location for the moors and coast. Lovely pub just up the road where the food was excellent and excellent service from yourselves.
The lovely welcome from the hostess, who took the time during the week to see that we were enjoying our stay. She recommended local shops, pubs and places to go. She also remembered all our names including the dog and chatted to the children. The log cabin was beautifully kitted out and looked really fresh and spotless. The wine, flowers and biscuits are a lovely touch and were very much appreciated after our journey.
A very comfortable,warm and well equiped cabin in a lovely position.The owners are lovely and incredibly helpful.
An excellent cabin which was well located for everything. The local pub served excellent food and the owners were lovely people, nothing was too much for them.
Extremely helpful, understanding and welcoming owners made for a very enjoyable stay. Would definitely recommend to others.
lovely hosts and a great setting, comfortable and warm.
The cabin was fantastic and so were the owners! The pub nearby was friendly and didn't mind children after 9pm!
The owners were fantastic. Very friendly and helpful. Our 2 year old still talks about them several weeks later.
Lovely holiday had by everyone, spacious cabin,with excellent hosts. The children had access to a trampoline and swings, plus a huge garden to run around. The welcome gifts of milk, chocky biscuits and a bottle of wine were a lovely gesture.
The only issue we had was the rugs on the floor were loose and slipping on the varnished floor. As a member of our family was disabled, we found this quite dangerous, so we took them up and rolled them, put in a corner. They could have been secured with many gadgets available nowadays, and commented in the visitors book about it. Otherwise a perfect location thats open all year round and in a beautiful part of the country, accessable to a great many beaches.
A good location to get to the moors and coast.
Everything was spot on. Lovely hosts and lovely log cabin in a beautiful location. The lovely welcome bottle of wine in fridge, such a lovely touch.
'The Log Cabin' - first class, garden immaculate. The general area was just what we needed for a relaxing break. Our hosts were a pleasure to have met. Looking forward to meeting them again.
Mr Mrs Taylor
Very clean cabin, perfect location with plenty of walks. Kind owners who greeted us. We would have stayed for longer if it had not have been booked up.
We had such a great time in Thornlea thanks to the lovely location, excellent attention to detail in the cottage, the amazing surroundings and the perfect host family. Val was there at 2.00am to welcome us after a long long drive. We had a lovely chilled bottle of wine waiting in the fridge and some delicious biscuits too. Our little girls loved the trampoline and swings and the nearby beaches. We left totally refreshed and can't wait to go back!
had a realy nice time lovley place, although we did firnd it a little too close to the owners, but other than that it was realy well equiped clean and very comfortable and warm.

The location, owners and peacefulness.

The setting and the quality of property.
The marvellous attention,and friendliness shown to my family,throughout our stay, by the owners.They made us feel so at home,without imposing their presence upon us.
We travelled a long way for this holiday(South France),but was worth every mile,and have every intention of repeats.

It was hard to fault anything. The owners were very helpful and we all had a great holiday.
The owners, made us very welcome and nothing was to much trouble for them. The excellently kept gardens (with swing) provided a place for our 2 year old grand-daughter to play safely. The location of this property allowed you the peace and tranquility of a small village but within easy distance of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and NYM Railway, the lovely town of Whitby and the seaside resort of Scarborough.
We were made very welcome by the owners. The location was fantastic, the cabin and gardens were really great. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The local pub served really nice food, and were really friendly even towards our Staffordshire bull terrier. He also loved the garden. We really had a great time, with short drives to some really beautiful countryside.
Brilliant, truly lovely people. The owners were so welcoming and could not do enough for us. Faultless accommodation.
Mr Mrs Burling
Fantastic place for a peaceful holiday. The owners of the property were very welcoming and went out of their way to make you feel at home. The log cabin and gardens were an ideal place for our 2 year old son. Would highly recommend Thornlea Log Cabin to anyone.

The uniqueness and layout of the cottage, ideal for a toddler. The very lovely owners.
The owners are top people, very friendly and approachable, would go back again.
Location is ideal for either exploring the moors or abusing the beaches as we did with the kites. Very happy holiday at a good price. Praise all round.
Mr Mrs Pryce
A wonderfully kept cabin, very clean, very helpful owners who couldn't help us enough and made sure we enjoyed our stay. I am going to book again.

Mr Mrs Earl
The place was lovely and clean and so peaceful. The owners were lovely to you, felt like you had known them for ages. We hope to return at some point, and would recommend it to anyone.
Mr Mrs Townsend
The accommodation was very clean and well equipped. The owners are two lovely people, very easy to get on with, and very informative in every way.
The log cabin is a novel place to stay. It is really cosy and comfortable.
The owners have the balance just right between being available and welcoming yet not intrusive.
The garden is superb and use of the conservatory during bad weather is a real bonus. The kids just loved using the huge trampoline and if the weather had been better we would have used the garden a lot more as it is a fantastic space.
The cabin location is perfect for fabulous walks or days by the beach and the countryside is breathtaking.
We would highly recommend for families and couples alike.
Everything about our holiday was lovely, the surroundings were absolutely excellent, The hosts were more than accommodating, very welcoming and could not do enough to facilitate a very relaxing enjoyable stay. We knew if we needed anything we only needed to ask. The area is an excellent base for reaching most places with plenty to do. We enjoyed all aspects of our holiday and are already planning to return at a later date. Our children also enjoyed it.
The holiday was very relaxing and we were made to feel very welcome and at home by the owners. Everything was excellent value for money and we will definitely be going back.
The hosts were very welcoming, they made us feel at home straight away. A beautiful cabin in a beautiful area with an amazing garden that was perfect for all three children. The little extra touches like the milk and wine in the fridge and the selection of games, magazines and dvd's made it that little bit extra special.
A beautiful location, in superb, newly built, generously equipped accommodation with friendly, helpful, approachable owners. Extremely child friendy, with loads of stuff to see and do.
The fact that the cabin is fully self contained and secluded, it is not in a complex, we could come and go as we pleased. Our hosts made us very welcome.

We loved the cabin. It had everything you needed and the owners were very attentive and helpful.
The accommodation was the best kept, best presented and best value we have ever stayed at. Will definitely return very soon.
Upon arrival we were given the warmest of welcomes by the owners, we were staying in a cabin of the highest quality and maintained to immaculate standards. The evenings we spent in doors were warm and cosy in the very comfortable lounge. The heating (panel heaters and electric log effect stove) was efficient and produced a cosy enough atmosphere for any winter's night. I would recommend this property to anyone unreservedly.
The owners made ourselves feel very welcome.
The garden was ideal and the location was very good. The cabin was perfect for what we wanted. We will be back!
The furnishings were of very high standards and the cleanliness was unbeatable. They really have thought of everything in this cabin, even down to a set of swings by the patio door. They made a real fuss of our daughters and made us feel like we were staying with friends rather than in a holiday cottage.
The accommodation was fantastic, child friendly with a feeling of luxury. The garden was brilliant for the kids, and the owners were lovely and very welcoming. the scenary was wonderful, very relaxing. We do a lot of cottage breaks and this was the best one so far, we cannot wait to return.
