“A fantastic guesthouse in the middle of Thirsk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

A warm welcome from Mark as I arrived. His local knowledge is good and nothing was too much trouble. Fourways is under new ownership and is gradually being renovated over the next few months. Although tired in its décor (only as it still needs it's makeover) my room was warm, clean and comfortable with everything I needed for my stay. The linen was clean and the bed very comfy. Breakfast was a full English of substantial proportions. I thoroughly recommend this guesthouse, it is just a few minutes walk away from the town centre which has many independent shops including one of the oldest sweet shops in the country and of course the Herriot museum. It also has some highly recommended eateries. As new owners Mark and Nikki have grand plans for this guest house and I look forward to seeing the results on my next stay hopefully later this year, just hope they can fit me in!!!!

I have just returned home from a lovely weekend at Thirsk for the Races. There were 8 of us that stayed at Fourways Guesthouse for a 2 night stay and i cannot speak highly enough of the new owners. We were warmly greeted on arrival by Mark and shown to our rooms which were all clean tidy and comfortable. They have a lovely new decking area which due to the fantastic weather we had we were able to get a lot of use from. They even have a new BBQ area which is something that i would love to use if we are able to make a return visit. Nothing is too much trouble for Mark or Nikki, even when one of our party managed to lock themselves out of their room at half 11 at night. All in all this is a lovely guesthouse and they have made vast improvements in the short time they have owned it and we will definitely stay here again in the future should we make any return visits to Thisk.

Warm welcome from friendly, helpful hosts. Lovely, clean rooms and great full English breakfast. Would definitely go back if in area again. Mark and Nikki have just taken over and are doing some improvements. They phoned us in advance to inform us and gave us a welcoming gift to compensate for rewiring just done to room and lack of renewed paint. It did not spoil our enjoyment one bit and we thought they were very thoughtful in letting us know in advance

We have just returned from a last minute 1 night stay at the Fourways Guesthouse. We arrived late due to work committments, this was no problem to Mark and Nikki who had the room kept cool and fresh milk ready. We had a family room (double with bunkbeds) which was spacious enough. We departed early as we were heading to the Great Yorkshire Show, again not a problem to the hosts who provided a full English breakfast when we requested. They even went that extra mile and checked travel information for our journey to the show. We will definitely return here.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Fourways Guesthouse. We were given a very friendly welcome by Mark when we arrived and this made us feel very much at ease. The room was basic but comfortable. I understand that Mark and Niki have recently taken over the B & B and they are in the process of making improvements. The full English was very tasty with good quality ingredients. Both Mark and Niki went the extra mile for us: helping us to locate parking, bringing us fresh milk which had been kept cool in a thermos in their freezer. We would definitely return if we were in the area again.
