This was a very comfortable, spotlessly clean, affordable Bed & Breakfast within a short walk of York walls and city centre. Breakfast was perfect and more than ample. We were made to feel very welcome and would not hesitate to return. Cheers guys!!!

We only stayed for one night but were pleasantly surprised. When we first pulled up outside I wasn't sure I was at the correct place as it looked like someone's house. Which in fact is what it is. There are only 2 rooms one in the loft and one on the first floor. We booked both. The loft room is...

We had a weekend at Thornfield. It is very convenient for walking into York and the owners provide parking permits outside the house. The breakfast was very tasty and the room was comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and we had a lovely welcome.

Thornfield House is everything and more you would want from a b & b. Lovely and friendly hosts. Great room. Fantastic breakfast. We have no hesitation in recommending to our family and friends. We look forward to returning for another stay. Should enter four in a bed would win it outright. Sheila and terry moorby x

We stayed for one night and visited the city during the day. Welcoming and friendly atmosphere, and the room was warm, comfy and clean. All the needed facilities were available, however internet was intermittent. Breakfast was delicious and copious as well. The location is very convenient, in a calm neighbourhood, with nearby local shops, and close to the city center....

Great stay. We arrived early due to having a wedding to attend and this was no problem with the owner. The room was on the top floor and very quiet. Very clean. We parked on the road outside easily and we were given a parking permit for the day we arrived and the day we left which was great. Around...
