A lovely breakfast is to be had here. Lovely large towels for the shower - unfortunately as they are a "green" B & B - not very much water pressure in the shower. Both owners are helpful and polite - making the stay an enjoyable one. Also surprised by the amount of "extras" provided in the room - better than... More

Thank you, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your birthday weekend with us. We are very proud of our 'green' credentials and try to do our best to look after our environment, although the water pressure is not relevant here and not normally a problem. More

Myself and two members of my family were lucky enough to find the Gallery in Thirsk for a one night stop-off on the way back from Northumberland to the south of England. We wanted a room each for just the one night, which is often difficult to find, and as they only have three rooms, we had the whole place... More

We stayed four nights in Thirsk at the Gallery. My husband did the booking and chose this b and b because of its central location. That was indeed a good idea but the real reason this was such a wonderful place is that Kathryn makes you feel right at home. There are books on the area that you can borrow... More

My daughter and I arrived at the Gallery very late on a Thursday night to be greeted warmly by the hosts and immediately put at our ease. We were on a flying visit to discover more about our ancestors, who had lived in the area. Kathryn and Steve did everything they could to make our stay comfortable and helped us... More

Prime location across the street from James Herriot Museum and just a few block from the city center. Kathryn was a delightful and helpful hostess who spent time talking with us and making us feel at home. The breakfasts were excellent and room was comfortable. Sutton Bank is beautiful and the White Horse is amazing. We enjoyed exploring this rural... More

What a lovely welcome from Kathryn on arrival. Nothing was too much trouble. Most comfortable bed in a beautiful room with a good hot shower. Breakfast was hearty with a vast range of sausages to choose from. Highly recommended and such good value.

Welcoming and friendly, exceptionally clean throughout. Breakfast beyond good, has everything that anyone could want. The Gallery at Thirsk is the ideal stopping off point on a long journey, but we always wish we could stay longer.

Thank you! It was lovely to see you again. We are ideally located for guests travelling north south or vice versa, just off the A1, providing accommodation in an interesting town with lots of nice places to eat, a welcome rest after a long day travelling. More

Excellent, friendly, clean, tidy, relaxing, comfortable, delicious. Good base for exploring the area. I would happily have stayed longer but for work had to be short break. Bed was so comfortable, I slept well which is unusual for 1st night in a new bed.
