Awards for Thorneyfield Guest House

Quality Cumbria Assessed

The Quality Cumbria assessors visit an accommodation provider every year and carry out a routine day visit. They all assess to the VisitBritain Minimum Entry Requirements (MER). You can be assured that if you select an Accommodation Provider with this sign (logo) beside it, then it has met, and in some circumstances will go beyond MER.
