Thornton Lodge – the Casino Royale in the Yorkshire Dales

One of our lovely houses in the Yorkshire Dales has just launched a series of themed mini-breaks, and here at Landed Houses, we thought we’d support Thornton Lodge by publishing a few of them.

Casino Royale

Got to love a Casino Night! Especially in a beautiful big house where all of the guests can stay over and not worry about relaxing with a few cocktails (or dry Martinis), and playing the tables until dawn.

Thornton Lodge is a big house to hire, and can sleep up to 18 in 9 bedrooms (all en-suite), and can offer either catered or self-catered stays.

The Casino Night is just one of the types of entertainment that can be arranged, and is the sort of evening perfect for groups of friends, family or as the culmination of a corporate break.

Thornton Lodge doesn’t just offer a few tatty decks of cards  – they organise a proper roulette table, complete with gorgeous croupier, and poker tables with a sharp dealer and (because it’s all rather fab); a shoe. They’ll even sort out a mid-night feast, to keep the party jolly in the small hours.

Happily, because it’s your night, and you’re in charge, dress code is totally up to you. If you’d like to pretend you’re in Monaco, then it’s best frocks and black tie all the way – or – you could go East End, with braces on your trousers and a Moll on your arm.

Whatever you decide; James Bond or Lock Stock, it’s a cracking night with chips rattling and lots of green baize and glamour.
