Our 2nd visit to this B&B just as wonderful as last year. Meets all needs as a young family when we are visiting Alton Towers for location quality and budget. Cindy is a fantastic host and makes it feel like home from home with her hospitality.

Stayed here for one night and there is nothing negative I can say about the place. The room was very clean, large, quiet and with a great shower. The full English breakfast was also fantastic and helped me out as I may have had one too many beers the night before. The owners were also great, giving us advise about... More

Visiting Ashbourne for the day and Thistle Bank was recommended by another B and B proprietor. I was not disappointed. Cindy is a friendly hostess who was keen to show me the local wildlife nesting in the trees. The rooms are generously sized and the cooked breakfast was one of the best I have ever tasted. Certainly value for money.

My husband and I stayed here for one night whilst in Ashbourne for a wedding. The house is absolutely spotless, has comfortable beds and very friendly hosts. We really enjoyed our English breakfast too! I would fully recommend this B&B.

We have just returned from a lovely few days staying at Thistle Bank Guest house. We were made very welcome by both Cindy and John. The rooms were large and comfortable. The breakfasts are probably amongst the best we have had. Freshly prepared to order and very tasty. We will definitely recommend it to anyone staying in the area.
