Beautiful place, beautiful people, beautiful natural farmland. The views are out of this world, the grounds are flourishing with animals From ducklings on the pond to llama's in the vast fields. What more can I say,what a lovely memorable stay.

We stayed here for one night between friends and a commitment in York. We are a family and took the family room which was spacious with an ensuite shower room.

We stayed here overnight on our way up to Scotland. The owners were very friendly, the room was comfortable and the full English breakfast was first class. The only small criticism was the free WiFi left a lot to be desired. It was very slow and kept dropping out. Having said that I would have no hesitation in recommending this...

We stayed here for a two night weekend break to go Christmas Shopping in York. We had a warm welcome from the chickens Ted the dog and Eric and his wife. The room was quite small but fine for a couple of nights. It was spotlessly clean and warm and cosy. Eric offered us fresh milk to make a drink...

Eric was a very warm and friendly host. He told us everything we would need to know and gave some great advice for our trip into York. Breakfast was delicious with locally sourced products. You can even see where your egg came from while sat at the breakfast table. I'm happy I chose this B&B to stay at.

My husband and I stopped for the first time at this B&B on Saturday night and I can only echo all the other positive reviews on this site. We arrived at night, but didn't have any problems finding it in the dark with sat nav and the directions we had. As soon as we walked in the door there was...

Thistledown House B&B is totally wonderful in every respect. Our wedding was held at neighbouring SCW (which is also wonderful) last year and we spent our wedding weekend there with friends and family. Everyone that stayed there loved it. The rooms are beautiful, cleaned and styled to a very high standard with everything anyone w/should expect. The food is amazing...

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...
