stayed here for one night in a standard double room. There was nothing standard about it. Myself and my partner had a lovely room with a lovely view and to top it all off an amazing couple who run it. Would recommend to anyone. The morning breakfast had a great selection and there loving black lab pet dog really topped... More

Spend a really lovely night here, hosts fantastic and even came out to meet us when we couldn't find the place in the dark. Room warm, clean and comfortable, breakfast excellent and the animals were really lovely. Would definitely go back if in the area again

Idyllic setting, old charm and warm, welcoming owners. A lovely spotless, well facilitated stay overnight for both us and our black lab who quickly made friends with the resident lab and decided to stay happily in their kitchen with him for the night instead of with us. Happy dog, happy people. Nothing was too much trouble, thank you Lesley and... More

Tucked away in the beautiful Yorkshire surrounding, overlooking a amazing lake with ducks, chicken's, Lama's and horses, stands The Thistledown House B&B in which we stayed for my brothers wedding. This old farmhouse shabby chic B&B is beautifully and tastefully decorated, only made better but its new management Eric and Lesley and their dogs Sam and Ted. We were immediately... More

We were staying at Thistledown house for a friends wedding. Both Lesley and Eric couldn't do enough for us. The rooms themselves are beautiful and the location second to none, with peacocks, chickens, ponies and lamas on your doorstep. The full English breakfast is not to be missed and in a very relaxed atmosphere. We will definitely be returning. Thank... More

It is most unusual for "the mother of the bride" to feel so relaxed and contented on the day before the big day! Lesley and Eric were so warm and welcoming, nothing i was too much trouble, and there is such an air of olde worlde charm combined with modern facilities. Bedrooms are so pretty without being fussy, the dining... More

We stayed here for a wedding and had such a wonderful time. The owners were so welcoming. Great rooms, great scenery and fantastic breakfasts! Our sons loved seeing the farm animals out of their window when they woke up and Eric let them pick their own eggs out of the chicken house

Under the new ownership and management of Eric and Lesley whose hospitality was excellent. I stayed in the large ground floor bedroom which had the most comfortable bed, French doors opening onto the gardens and a beautiful and very deep French bath. Suffice to stay I did not want to leave. I was made to feel very welcome and left... More

I stayed in the Old Granary last week. Had a lovely stay under what I assume was the new management. A very welcoming place. Breakfast was excellent. Rooms were clean, tidy and very accommodating. Nice and close to York and Harrogate. I will definitely be revisiting.

We could never have imagined the wonderful people we would meet and have the privilege to welcome into our home but a few months down the line we find ourselves in this happy situation.
