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...

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...

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...
