“Could not ask for more, excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

Great location, excellent rooms, self contained so really like (or better than) a hotel with your own central heating, fridge, oven dishwasher etc and with Amandas superb breakfast. Better than an ordinary b&b and with more room than a hotel but all at b&b prices.
Would definitely return again and no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Beautiful guest house situated in the hamlet of Carlton Miniott approximately 1 mile outside Thirsk itself, some 300m from Thirsk rail station and a short 10 minute stroll from the race course. Amanda is a wonderful, accommodating host for whom it is never too much trouble. The bedrooms are all en suite, spotlessly clean, well proportioned and beautifully decorated. Each has a flat screen tv, hair dryer, alarm clock, bottled water, kettle, tea, coffee and fresh milk sachets. The en suite has lovely large bottles of shower wash and body lotion.
Breakfast both well cooked and plentiful. We loved the sausages so much we ordered some to take back home with us!
I can't recommend this place highly enough.

We had a wonderful stay at the "Poplars", comfortable and quiet room. Amanda was a great host and the "Full English" breakfast was outstanding. We ventured out to "The George" for dinner and enjoyed fresh shot rabbit and the local bitter. Thirsk is a great area and we especially wanted to connect with James Herriot's/Alf White's Yorkshire.

I spent a really comfortable couple of nights at this lovely b and b in October. The bed was fab and I had the best nights sleep for some time. The breakfast was gorgeous and kept me going all day. I was made very welcome and loved the beautiful Bailey.

When I walked up to The Poplars I was greeted by name. They were expecting me and everything was prepared in this well-managed B&B. I was asked what time I would like to have breakfast at, and I did not find out until later that the time I selected was earlier than their usual start of breakfast. They just accomodated my request. When the time came to leave I was offered a lift to the railroad station, which is only about 300 meters away but I accepted because it was drizzling.

My room and bathroom were both large and clean. The hotel was quiet and I felt it was secure. The breakfast was ample with eggs that were cooked to order. I would not hesitate to choose The Poplars again.

A lovely little guest house. We stayed for one night and were really impressed. Our room was nicely decorated, and even though it was at the front of the house, it wasn't noisy at all. The bed was really comfortable and the local information that Amanda had put together was really comprehensive and gave some good recommendations.

The breakfast is all locally sourced and there was a good range of food, the black pudding was especially good!

Sadly Amanda was away for our stay but her father in law and fiance were on hand to welcome us, along with their lovely dog, Bailey.

I would recommend this b&b.

I thought the Poplars was a wonderful Bed and Breakfast, the room was decorated to a high standard and comfortable. The house and gardens are lovely and peaceful. I really enjoyed the breakfast too, which was locally sourced and cooked to order. Amanda was a great host and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay there again.
