Very welcoming hosts Cindy and John made this an excellent short break. Bedrooms modern with comfortable memory foam beds. Delicious and substantial breakfasts set us up for the day and probably prevented us exploring local pubs and cafes!

We booked an overnight stay at Thistle Bank as we were attending a wedding in Ashbourne that afternoon. Cindy had promised she would have our room ready early to enable us to change - in fact it was ready when we arrived much earlier than planned and we were able to check-in. Cindy had booked a taxi to take us...

Cindy greeted us at the door on crutches - she had just had a hip replacement. She showed us the ground floor dining room and arranged a breakfast time but understandably did not show us to our room upstairs. The room was large with a sitting area at one end. The full English breakfast was good however there was only...

The B&B is in a great location with spacious bedrooms and a breakfast to satisfy the heartiest of appetites. Cindy and John run a very clean and tidy establishment which I wouldn't hesitate recommend. Even though Cindy was recovering from a recent hip operation she couldn't do enough for us.

What a wonderful warm welcome from Cindy and John. Our room was spacious and well appointed with high quality toiletries in the bathroom and fresh milk in the room for tea and coffee. The breakfast was beautiful and the Thistle is a real gem. I would return in a heartbeat. Thank you so much :)

Myself, partner and 2 children aged 10 and 11 stayed on the 24th 0ctober. Our bedroom was very spacious and comfortable with a great sized family bathroom. Everywhere was clean and tidy. In the morning we all had a lovely breakfast with everything you could want. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely stay again.

I spent a couple of nights here on business. A great welcome on arrival and a well-appointed room with three beds to choose from. I chose the double in the middle which was very comfortable, if needing slightly firmer pillows for my taste. New bathroom with a splendid shower. The room even had a small fridge, had I wanted to...
