The Poplars - Rooms & Cottages
Ranked #5 of 23 Thirsk B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 September 2017

Another lovely stay at The Poplars for me, my mum and our dog. This time, we chose to stay in Rose Cottage which has two bedrooms, one with a double bed and en-suite with shower, and a twin room. There is also a separate bathroom with bath. Rose Cottage is all on one level so suitable for those with mobility issues. The living area consists of plenty of comfortable seating (two settees), tv, fire and kitchen/dining area. There was everything we needed for our stay. All we needed to do was take a trip to the local supermarket (5 minute drive towards Thirsk centre) and stock up on the food we would need. I don't think there is any WiFi in the cottages, but it is available at the main house, however, I was happy to escape from it for a week. As with the other cottages and B&B Rooms we have stayed in here, everything is spotless, the beds are very comfortable, and the water pressure is great to have a really good shower to start the day.

The cottage is in a great area for travelling to all the "well known" places around North Yorkshire, after a few years visiting, we are now finding the smaller attractions usually overlooked on a short stay. We find something new every year and are more than happy to come back to The Poplars again.

Room Tip: Rose Cottage ideal for those with mobility problems.

We have returned from a 3 night stay in a 6 bed lodge at The Poplars, Thirsk and I must say that we all had a fantastic time.
First of all the owner was a lovely woman who made us feel welcome right from the moment we arrived.
The service received was excellent and the staff very responsive to our needs
The lodge itself was very clean with all facilities provided and was very adequate for all 6 of us.
The lodge grounds were tranquil and well maintained. A large grass area ample for our children to kick their ball around and observe the farm animals in a neighboring plot
Thirsk is within walking distance
Thank you to Amanda who was always attentive and has great local knowledge.
We will definitely visit again!

What a wonderful place to stay. We had a double room which was clean, tidy and had all the usualy facilities. Amanda was the most welcoming host we have ever had...anywhere we have stayed! She and her family made us feel so welcome and were so accomodating, nothing was too much trouble. We especially enjoyed meeting Bailey the resident weimeraner and Amandas young daughter and baby. We would recommend this to anyone. Breakfast was fab and plentiful. The hotel is not far from the centre of Thirsk but is a fair trek if you were to walk. Car parking is also no issue as the grounds of the place are quite large. We had a room but would also be very happy to rent one of the cottages or lodges on the grounds as everywhere is immaculately kept. A great place to go! Five star +++ from us!

We have just returned from a weekend stay (7 of us in total) as were in the area for a friends wedding.
It was absolutely perfect for what we needed, and as a group, having one of the cottages (the others had 2 rooms in the main house) was perfect, as meant we had a place to all convene together.
The owners were very welcoming ( and also the hosts that were covering for them as the owners had a well deserved break!)
Thank you for accommodating us all and for bringing us extra champagne glasses when we hadn't even asked for any! Much appreciated!
