We stayed in the shepherds hut - this was tastefully decorated all vintage and was simply adorable! Little fine details down to a bottle a wine, fire already lit and biscuits awaiting! The owners are lovely, I wouldn't recommend staying in a storm like we did as it can be a little windy but we still had a lovely time.... More

Second year we have stayed at the Thistledown... on our Christmas shopping weekend in York. Gorgeous B & B not to far from York centre. Lovely owners, welcoming and friendly. Quaint beamed bedrooms spotlessly clean. Comfy beds. The crowning glory is the Scottish breakfast - delicious. Lovely country views. We would highly recommend the Thistledown.

Booked the twin room for one night at the last minute,very friendly welcome on arrival, the room was warm and spotlessly clean. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Breakfast was superb , plenty of everything, and beautifully cooked.! A big thank you to Leslie and Eric.

Marvellous. Loved our stay. We missed out on our original accommodation in York. Weren't we the lucky ones. Couldn't ask for more from Eric and Lesley. Short trip to everything we wanted and needed. If only we remembered our weeklies. We will definitely stay again

We weren't disappointed 😄 Fantastic character property set in lovely countryside surroundings, only 15mins from York City centre by car, made... More

The hotel is conveniently located right off the highway, between two towns with train stations yet you feel as though you are far from reality. Indeed, the farm and family atmosphere encompasses peace and tranquility. This charming little B & B creates an environment of relaxation like a holiday in a hotel!

Absolutely lovely setting, very picturesque, lovely couple who couldn't do enough for the guests. If there was a 6 star I'd give it. Room was clean, comfortable and all the amenities needed, breakfast was brilliant.
