A lovely house in a typical dales village. We received a warm, friendly welcome when we arrived on a bitterly cold February day. Our king-sized room was excellent with a large bathroom with shower and a bath. The other two rooms were equally impressive. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice.

Thornsgill's a lovely traditional B&B and you'll be well looked after, get the finest of breakfasts and good advice on the local pubs. Les & Dorothy are the friendliest of hosts and the rooms are lovely and spacious. Well worth picking up their money-off voucher for the King's Arms for the finest of pies.

Stayed here whilst walking the Pennine Journey and arrived early after a very wet day. They immediately put the heating on so I had a warm room. And despite being on only day three of the walk the en-suite bath was very welcome. They provided lots of local information regarding local attractions, walks and eating establishments. The breakfast was superb....

We've just returned from our first stay with Les and Dorothy; The most friendly of hosts. They made us feel really welcome and we chatted away like long lost friends.

One word excellent! A wonderful place to stay, clean, friendly with great food. Les and Dorothy are wonderful hosts. Excellent choices for breakfast in particular the home made marmalades. Askrigg also has three pubs in the village all of which do good food.

Stayed 1 night here and was very impressed - I would definitely stay here again! Lovely location in Askrigg, just off the Main Street so quiet and with parking but also only a short distance to the 3 pubs in the village that do great food. Les is very welcoming and friendly making you feel at home and there are...

When Les open the door to us he welcomed us in and 2 minutes later it was like we knew him all our life. He is the most fantastic host. He introduces guests to each other at breakfast and everyone has a nice chat while you eat. The house is clinically clean, the bed is so comfortable you won't want...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Thornsgill House is our unique and family run Edwardian house which commands a peaceful position in the village next to Askrigg Beck. We are away from the Main Street of the village but still handy for the pubs, restaurants and shops, which are all within a few minutes stroll, and we have walks in abundance straight from the door. We have 3 bright and spacious en-suite bedrooms, and a separate lounge and dining room for your exclusive use. You can enjoy watching the world go by from the raised south facing front garden and wrought iron veranda. Thornsgill is packed full of the original features which you would expect to find in an Edwardian house-we have several beautiful stained glass windows, a fabulous central staircase, original tiled broad entrance hall and light and spacious, high ceilinged rooms with the original cornices and picture rails.We have been awarded a 4 Star Silver Award & also a Breakfast Award from VisitEngland. Silver awards are given to guest accommodation that provides exceptional quality in all areas but in particular in service and hospitality, so you know that you can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome. Breakfast Awards are sponsored by Kellogg’s and are awarded to 'special places that have gone the extra mile to ensure that breakfast will exceed guests' expectations'. ... more   less
