Stayed at The Gallery B&B for 1 night to attend the races. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. Although we arrived before 12 our room was ready enabling us to change before heading out again. Kathryn, as mentioned in other reviews, is a wonderful host and took time to show us our room and...

Kathryn was warm, friendly and helpful to me in getting settled and learning a bit about Thirsk. It was a treat to have her as a resource at breakfast. The B&B is right across the street from the James Herriot Museum and 1 minute walk to the town center. The bed was comfortable. Location is very good for exploring Thirsk.

Kathryn was so sweet when we arrived. The room was amazing, food even better. If you ever have the chance to go to Thirsk, make an effort to stay here. Thirsk itself was by far my favorite stop-off on our spring break excursions, and I will most definitely be making the effort to come back in the future!

We traveled up the west side of England to Scotland and back down to Thirsk and York before returning to Gatwick airport. This, our third, bnb, was our favorite. The place was quaint and charming, the breakfasts were amazing and delicious, and the proximity to the town of Thirsk and the James Herriot museum was wonderful. We would highly recommend... More

Have stayed at this fab bed and breakfast for years with family. Decided to take a trip up to Thirsk with my partner and The Gallery was the natural choice. Owner Kathryn was welcoming as always, and our double bedroom was clean, bright and comfortable. Homemade biscuits in the room are a tasty extra touch! Breakfasts are invariably commendable -...

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Gallery whilst on a break to cover a 70th Birthday. The Gallery was clean, comfortable and pleasant . Kathryn was a perfect hostess, providing home made biscuits and fresh milk in the room. nothing was too much trouble, Would definitely return to this very nice area

Kathryn and Steve make you feel immediately at home at this beautifully-kept B&B; The Gallery has all the charm and comfort of a traditional cottage alongside contemporary facilities and a perfect central location. The 'bed' element of this B&B is fantastic; gorgeous bedding on an extremely comfortable mattress, generously-stocked tea tray (complete with delicious homemade biscuits), modern bathroom- with great...

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.
