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

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

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.

My partner and I stayed here on new years eve just to have a night away from home, it was lovely! The room was very 'shabby chic' in style and very clean. The breakfast was also lovely. Val and Glynn made brilliant hosts with a good sense of humour. On the night we ate at The Victoria and I would... More
