My husband and I used this B & B for our recent visit to the Great Yorkshire Show. Nice, clean and tidy room - comfortable bed. Little bit noisy from about 5am onwards due to nearby road. Tasty breakfast both mornings. Couldn't get all TV channels in our room which was a little annoying. Host was very kind and supplied... More

We stayed for 1 night last night while visiting friends in york, our room was very homely and cosy. We received a warm welcome from the owners Eric even gave us a lift to the park and ride to avoid leaving our car! The next morning we had a gorgeous breakfast including Scottish tattie scones and the best scrambled eggs... More

It's a wonderful place: in the countryside, but really close to York (ten minutes by car to York Minster!) You will receive a very warm welcoming by Eric, Leslie and their beautiful Labrador Ted! The room was perfect. The Scottish breakfast was prepared with local products and the eggs came directly from the hens in the farmyard! Really recommended!

We've just returned from a two night stay at Thistledown House. The location was great for travelling into knaresborough, York and Harrogate. The owners were fabulous, warm, welcoming and genuinely lovely people. Our room was quaint, clean, well decorated and had everything we needed. The only thing which would make it perfect for us would be a path alongside the... More

We were upgraded to a beautiful room with patio doors which led out to the gardens. A welcome bottle of prossecco was provided. The breakfast was really good. Lesley... More

Would love to visit this place again. My husband and son were reluctant to stay at a B&B. They are convinced now what great places they are! If you have not tried one, you should make this your first. The owners are great . And Ted, the lab, will be happy to let you pet him.
