The breakfast in the morning was spot on! Thank you Eric and Lesley for being so welcoming. Highly recommend staying here ideal base for... More

This is the second time I have visited Skipbridge Farm but the first time I have stayed at the B&B. I had one of the best nights sleep and most definitely the best Scottish breakfast I've ever had! I am still dreaming about the 'tattie scones'. Leslie and Eric are extremely friendly and welcoming; they really can't do enough for... More

It's beautiful, clean and one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. Polite and welcoming owners. No faults at all. Loved it and will be back the next time we have a little get away to York! There's also a lovely dog.

My mum and I stayed for one night at the end of November after a shopping trip in York. The owners are so lovely and made us feel really welcome but the best things about this B&B is Ted the dog...he is such a good dog, we actually wanted him to sleep in our room! If you're not a dog... More

We have just returned from a family weekend away in York and used the Thistledown as our base. Leslie, Eric and Ted the dog gave us a very warm welcome even leaving a football sticker book for my 9 year old son. There was four adults and two children in our party so we needed two room. Both were clean,... More

We booked the Thistledown House B&B for a overnight stay in York. What a little gem we found. From phoning up to enquire, to checking out the owners couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the family room which was perfect for us. Plenty of room, lovely and clean with a traditional country cottage decor with a... More

We had a one night stay here 29/11. It isn't like a normal b and b stay, you really feel you are catching up with old friends.It's a lovely, cosy atmosphere. Eric and Leslie are good company, Ted the dog is good fun. We will definitely be back, great location; best of both worlds just on the edge of a... More
