As this was our 4th visit to the Gallery we can confidently say this is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Nothing is too much trouble for Kathryn and Steve, the room was of a very high standard and the breakfast was superb with all you could want. As I say this is our 4th visit and... More

We stayed here for two nights for a family wedding. Our room was a perfect size for my husband and I and our 14-month old daughter along with her inflatable bed. The room and bathroom were a very high standard, and we were very happy with all the little extras provided - cotton buds for me and kettle for tea-drinking... More

Second visit to The Gallery and yet again couldn't find fault with anything at all. Rooms spotless and filled with lots of additional touches you wouldn't get in lots of B&Bs such as home made biscuits, chocolates, cotton wool pads, shower cap and a full range of toiletries. Great breakfast. Already booked again for next year. Thank you Kathryn!

A fantastic B & B in the YorKshire town of Thirsk. We stayed for one night on our way back from from Scotland after dropping our son off at his base. Kathryn is the perfect host, with nothing being to much trouble. The room was really comfy and to a very high standard. The breakfast in the morning is the... More

En route from Brighton to go the the Deershed Festival, we squeezed a family of four into one of the rooms and our two delighted little girls are still talking about their night in a hotel where they made a marvellous den (in the adorable little curtained cubby) and ate toffees (welcome sweeties).

Thank you, it was lovely to have you and your 2 daughters here and i assure you we have many adults who make much more noise at breakfast than you did!!

Lovely traditional Yorkshire B&B, the lady who owns it was well informed to help us plan our day if we wanted it but also gave us space when we arrived and during breakfast to enjoy ourselves without having a forced conversation as we have experienced at other B&Bs. The room was small and cosy with a lovely en suit and... More

The Gallery is everything one imagines a great B&B to be. The utmost care has been taken to ensure a very comfortable stay with GREAT attention being given to detail. The hostess, Kathryn, was very welcoming and is a very lovely lady. The breakfast was most enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend this B&B.

Thank you for your review. It's lovely when guests return regularly, we are obviously doing things right! Thirsk is perfectly placed for exploring North Yorkshire and also being so close to the A1 it's ideal for those travelling from the south to the north or vice versa. More
