Warming comfortable and spotless, with a real sense of attention to detail.Fantastic home cooked breakfast with fresh ingredients sourced locally. Kathryn has a real sense of community and nothing is too much trouble.Sadly I was only there one night but wish my stay could have been longer. Highly recommended !!

We have stayed for the third time in the Gallery. Things that we especally like are the rooms, breakfast and the friendliness of the owners. They do their best to make you feel at home and ensure that you lack nothing. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The Gallery is located in the center of Thirsk and therefore easily... More

A warm, welcoming and very accommodating place. It has all the small touches of a nice hotel, making it feel luxurious. We would definitely visit again when we're in that part of North Yorkshire. Although there is no on site parking the owner provides a useful parking permit for the road just outside.

I was backpacking the UK in January and had made plans to stop in Thirsk to see James Herriot's World and the Yorkshire countryside. Looking for lodging where I wanted it was tricky because Thirsk was so small, but the town had a website and I chose The Gallery because it was so close to James Herriot's World. Right across...

Relaxing weekend in rural Thirsk. Perfect antidote to stressful city life. Plenty of parking (refreshingly inexpensive), interesting independent shopping and marvellous places to eat out. The Gallery is centrally situated with very welcoming hosts and a lovely olde worlde property furnished tastefully. Very comfortable nights sleep followed by fabulous choices for breakfast. A wonderful choice for a completely relaxing weekend... More

Stayed here while visiting the town for two days. This is without doubt the best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at. Very good hosts, very clean room, lovely breakfast. Would not hesitate to go back.
