Our host, Stuart, was so accommodating and couldn't do enough for us. Prior to our arrival bookings were made by our hosts for restaurants in the region that turned out to be outstanding. So helpful as we didn't have to think about where we would eat just what could we see. The room was very comfortable even in the extreme...

We booked our stay at the Thistle Hill Guest House months before our trip and using the internet to research the place. Our initial emails were met warmly by Donna and she kindly agreed to help organise restaurants for the 2 nights that we planned to stay. Upon our arrival, we found Donna to be equally warm in person, making...

Complimentary bottle of wine in the refrigerator with cheese and biscuits on arrival were lovely. Breakfast was also very good overlooking the pool and beautiful countryside. Excellent location, right in the heart of...

We really loved our weekend at Thistle. Donna and Stuart are very welcoming and the service was top notch. Beautiful rooms and stylishly landscaped surroundings. It was a blessing to have a pool on a rather hot couple of days which we took full advantage of with a few nibbles and bottle of wine which was complimentary in our room....

This is a great B&B and Donna and Stuart are great hosts. Before I arrived I explained I was allergic to polyester in sheets and needed 100% cotton. Donna was pretty sure they were full cotton but just to make sure she went out and bought new sheets which were definitely all cotton. We were really impressed with this gesture...
