Thank you for your excellent review, BillyJean. You are most welcome to be our guests in the future. No, I do not give front door keys to guests because it is important for me to know who is in and out of the property at all times. Also some people would not lock the doors securely.

I stayed at St. James House because I wanted to see the World of James Harriot museum in Thirsk. The B&B is in a beautiful heritage home and decorated with very pretty and charming antiques. It is very clean and very safe, within easy walking distance of the town square and restaurants and the museum. It's about a 30 min... More

We had an unexpected stay and though they were full; Barry the loveliest of B&B owner's you are ever likely to meet, went beyond the call of duty for us so we could stay for our meeting in Thirsk the next morning.

We stayed there for 5 days: a very cosy and nice place (have a look at the fornitures...), a great landlord and a lovely cat. It's a good base for exploring the North Moors and the Dales, York and the coast.
