Once again after visiting Thornsgill House we were warmly welcomed by Doroth and Les. Had a fantastic weekend with a lovely spacious room - warm and cosy. Also a breakfast to die for. Looking forward to returning in the near future. Highly recommended. Ken and Linda

We have just enjoyed our fourth stay at Thornsgill House. Dorothy and Les were very welcoming as always.The breakfast is to die for ( ! ) and really sets you up for a day in the beautiful Dales. The three bedrooms are all attractive and very well appointed. Very comfortable double beds . Highly recommended.

Askrigg is a beautiful village and an ideal base from which to explore much of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and I have no hesitation in recommending Thornsgill House in the village to even the most discerning traveller. The welcome is warm and friendly with guests being greeted with hot drinks and delicious fruit cake on arrival. The rooms are warm, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with a kettle and the ingredients for a wide selection of hot drinks as well as biscuits. An array of luxury toiletries is also provided. The breakfast menu is more extensive than in some B&Bs I’ve stayed in and the generous portions are cooked to a very high standard. Les and Dorothy seem very happy to serve breakfast at a time to suit the guest (within reason I imagine) rather than themselves which, for me, is an important point. I’ve stayed here several times over the last few years and I look forward to continuing to do so in the future.

Lovely b&b in great village. Very quiet but great location near one of the pubs.
Warm welcome and tea & cake from Les and Dorothy. Very hearty breakfast. Tea and biscuits in room.
Nice room and very comfy, although electric shower poor.

Lovely house with large, attractively decorated rooms. Dorothy & Les were very welcoming & recommended several places for dinner, as well as an alternate travel route. Breakfast was served in a pretty, sunny dining room; the food was delicious & portions were generous. Very good value for the price, and we would highly recomment Thornsgill as a wonderful place to stay!
