It is many years since I have stayed in a B&B, so wondered how it would compare to my usual hotel experience. The room we had was an annexe to the main house with its own front-door and up some stairs into a spacious room with a very comfortable metal framed bed. Although it looked to the front road, it...

My wife, son and I stayed one night traveling from Edinburgh south. We made reservations on line and received a friendly, prompt response from Amanda. Very good communication with her prior to our arrival. Our room was large and very comfortable. Amanda was very helpful with local resources such as pubs and stores. Breakfast was tasty and of very good... More

We stayed three nights in mid-July as part of a holiday in northern England. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was very good with locally sourced produce and a choice of smoked salmon. The location was convenient for visiting the Yorkshire Dales, the coast and the North York Moors and also for Thirsk railway station. We found... More

Wonderful B & B. We were travelling with our son & his partner & we occupied 2 double rooms. Upon arriving Amanda was a friendly hostess, giving us ideas where to eat dinner locally. Both rooms were large & fitted out well, and very quiet even though ours was on the front of the house. It was one of the... More

Stayed here on and off for about 4 months while working in Thisk. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Close to the train station, lovely rooms, very friendly and an excellent breakfast. What more would you need.

Only stayed one night on way south but a great find. Where else do you get welcomed with a pot of tea and slice of cake? Magnificent breakfast with locally sourced bacon and sausage plus the egg came from their own chickens. Large comfortable bedroom and en-suite. Would have given five stars but the bed collapsed as we rolled over!... More

Stayed one night as traveling on business and booked last minute. The property looks fantastic from the outside and gets even better on the inside. Amanda the host was very welcoming and the breakfast was spot-on. Shower was powerful and no problems with hot water. Will stay again.

We stayed overnight for a friends birthday in the centre of Thirsk. It was a short taxi ride to the centre from the property, and a short walk from the train station so it was perfect. The rooms were beautiful and very clean, and had a private entrance giving the privacy of a hotel. The grounds were also stunning. Definitely... More

We stayed one night with our 4 month old son and the owners were extremely helpful and accommodating. They went above and beyond. I would definitely stay here again if we need a place to stay in Thirsk.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Poplars, originally a farm house, built in 1901, is an impressive detached property with far reaching grounds. Set within an acre of gardens, the Poplars Rooms are all accessed via their own private entrance, affording you the privacy usually associated with a larger hotel, whilst offering our guests the personal touches and attention to detail from a small family owned Bed & Breakfast. Ideally located for access to all major routes ( A1, A61 & A19) as well as being only 250m from the train station, The Poplars is an ideal base for business or pleasure. All rooms are exceptionally well equipped with all the comforts you would expect from a quality driven establishment; Freeview TV, Power Shower, Free WIFI, Bathrobes, Mineral Water and Tea & Coffee facilities, make for those extra special touches. A great night's sleep, complimented by a fantastic breakfast..... Bed & Breakfast as it should be. ... more   less
