We love going to stay at Thorney Mire Barn - the welcome is warm and Nick and Zena are wonderful hosts. The rooms are very comfortable with everything you could want and the breakfasts are delicious. We booked the evening meals for our stay - they were beautifully prepared and cooked. The location is quiet but close to Hawes -... More

Our hosts Zena and Nick were really very welcoming. We had a large comfortable room with ensuite bathroom. Molton Brown hand wash, hand lotion, shower gel and shampoo immediately set this B and B apart from the norm. We had dinner which was faultless. You are welcome to bring your own wine, because they do not have a liquor licence.... More

The room looked great upon our arrival, and we were greeted with coffee and cookies from the owners :) The evening meal had to be arranged prior to our arrival due to their inability to cook everything on the menu on tap - which is understandable. We were quite pernickety with our food choice: steak and chips. However, the food... More

Thorny Mire Barn was just wonderful. Really nice place, modernized well without losing character. The hosts were just fantastic. The only B&B on our recent trip where we took dinner as well there and it was great. Breakfast was a treat and everything home cooked Nestled in rural Yorkshire Dales and very close to the nearby village of Hawes. Loads... More

Zena and Nick were the prefect hosts. The warm welcome, the overtures to make sure we were comfortably settled, the hot cup of tea upon arrival and the cookies, baked by Zena and the many many personal touches that showed that we did matter helped make the stay comfortable. The rooms themselves, the comfortable and well appointed furnishings, the luxury... More

What a great find. Zena and Nick are wonderful hosts making us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The room was lovely and very comfortable. We had a delicious evening meal and equally delicious breakfast. There are lovely walks with beautiful scenery in the area and close to Hawes and Leyburn.We will definitely be back. Thank you Zena...

We stayed at thorny mire barn a couple of weeks ago and thorough enjoyed our time, the hospitality was second to none. We loved the big breakfasts in the morning, all freshly cooked with local ingredients and their own free range eggs. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and spotless with lovely views.

Went for a two night stay in order to start to explore the area so beautifully described by Gervase Phinn, which was every bit as beautiful as we had hoped for and Thorny Mire being a perfect base to explore from. The stay was made so much more enjoyable by this wonderful B&B and by the welcome of Zena and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Zena & Nick look forward to welcoming you to Thorney Mire Barn. We have three luxuriously appointed en-suite guest rooms, furnished to a high standard. Features of each room include a pocket sprung divan bed, a fully tiled bathroom with underfloor heating and a fridge stocked with fresh milk & cordials. Our guests enjoy the privacy of a separate entrance and bedrooms separated from the main house. We are in a secluded location in Widdale, just one mile from the historic market town of Hawes and surrounded by the beautiful Wensleydale countryside within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Outside there is ample off-road parking, south facing patio areas in our garden and about 4 acres of private woodland to explore where you may see red squirrels, roe deer and many different species of birds. There are footpaths that take you on wonderful country walks in all directions from our front door. Or you can explore further afield by cycling quiet country lanes. The woods are also home to our free-range chickens, and the garden has vegetable, fruit and herb beds, so you can enjoy our own fresh eggs, vegetables and fruits. Thorney Mire Barn is exclusively for adults. Unfortunately, we cannot accept dogs, with the exception of assistance dogs ... more   less
