“Couldn't ask for any better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I stayed at Thorngarth for 3 nights during the last week in May. I had only stayed in Yorkshire once before, but decided I would give Thorngarth Country Guest House a try this time as I had read a lot of good reviews! I travelled up from London on the Tuesday, and when I arrived, I was greeted by Dave who was more than welcoming!

On the Wednesday morning, I was greeted by Sally who then introduced me to another couple who were also staying before getting our breakfast. At this point, I didn't really know what I would be doing that day as I only really planned my Thursday and Friday, when I was going to be meeting up with another friend. After completing my breakfast, Dave then came in and chatted to us and asked what our plans were for the day (I didn't have any at this point). He then proceeded to suggest some nice areas and pubs to visit and gave me a map and marked the locations on it. He said I could hold on to the map for the time being. This was great for me as I had nothing planned, but now most of my day was planned for me, and I got to see some really nice parts of Yorkshire!

On the Friday morning, I needed to leave the guest house earlier as I had planned to travel the Settle-Carlisle railway with a friend of mine. Another couple who were doing the 3 peaks walk also needed to set off early and Sally kindly agreed to have our breakfast ready before we left.

All in all, I couldn't have asked for any better of a guest house. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. I hopefully plan to go to Yorkshire again next year, and will have no hesitation at staying at Thorngarth again!

Sally and I are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Thorngarth Country Guest House and also your visit to the Yorkshire Dales. There is so much to see and do in and around the Ingleton and surrounding areas, and you don't even have to be a walker to enjoy the Dales. We are in an ideal position as a base to explore The Yorkshire dales, Forest of Bowland and Lake District. Kind Regards Dave & Sally.

The other reviews on this site describe Thorngarth Country Guest House and the surrounding area perfectly and there's not a great deal to add other than to say we have just spent another 4 nights at Thorngarth and yet again we have had a brilliant stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Dave and Sally, the rooms are spotless and the food is always cooked to perfection with an excellent choice every day. One thing is certain; 'we will be back'.

We've just returned from two nights at Thorngarth, our base for attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks walk (three mountains 25 miles). Dave and Sally have a great B&B and were very welcoming. They bought breakfast forward so that we could get off early. Dave missed us to say goodbye but by the time we'd started walking had left a message on my mobile offering a lift if we failed to complete the walk. Happily we didn't need to take him up on the offer but it was really kind for him to take the trouble, and gave us a "get out of jail free card" had we have needed it. If you stay, try the marmalade, great stuff!

Dave and Sally were clearly born to look after guests because they do it so well: attentive without being overbearing and helpful to a tee. The room was quiet and comfortable and and the B&B is within easy walking distance of the village's pubs.

I gave my parents a gift voucher for Thorngarth for Christmas and they have returned, once again, raving about their holiday. Lovely warm welcome and encouraged to feel relaxed and at ease with the other guests. Rooms always immaculate with excellent quality homemade food every day.

Great location for seeing the best of the Dales. Excellent hospitality, food, comfort etc. Great couple and any info you need is readily available by both. Dave even worked out a route for us to see the very best of the Dales, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Would highly recommend.
