This B&B is ideally located, just a lovely couple minutes walk from the James Herriot museum and downtown Thirsk marketplace. If you're a Herriot fan you'll be delighted by Barry's knowledge of the area and his personal experiences with Mr. Herriot. Barry could charge a small fortune for this information, instead he chooses to share it freely with his guests.... More

I spend four nights here in April with a friend. The owner was unfailingly friendly and helpful. He was perfectly happy to let us arrive at close to 11pm. As a keen walker, he was full of useful advice about walks we could do, both locally and throughout the North Yorks Moors. The rooms were clean, comfortable and warm, and... More

Lovely place to visit. Run by a great gentlemen called Barry. Breakfast was lovely and rooms were clean and tidy. Central location to town where there are plenty of places to eat and drink. Nothing was too much trouble for Barry.

Barry, the owner, is an excellent host and a lovely man. He kept us entertained with his stories and his knowledge of the area, and was kind enough to recommend another excellent B&B in nearby Helmsley for our second night. The breakfast was really tasty, the room clean and comfortable and we especially liked the very 'unique' style of decor.....and... More

We stayed here as we were going to Ladies Day at Thirsk Races. As we were a family group we had 3 bedrooms and shared a bathroom. It worked ok and the rooms were clean, with antique pieces of furniture and all with views of The Green. Barry is a really friendly host, and is very attentive. The breakfast was... More

Barry, the owner's hospitality is second to none as is his vast knowledge of Yorkshire - near and far, which proved invaluable when planning our daily excursions. His home help, both Joannas, also added to our family's comfort and nothing was too much trouble for them, helping us with bits of laundry and cooking us absolutely delicious breakfasts. The house...

Wonderful Yorkshire hospitality in a charming house with a traditional English garden. Our host, Barry, is an enthusiastic advocate of the area. He is a great source of advice for local lore, places to see and places to eat. Our room was huge, the bathroom well appointed and the breakfasts were delicious and kept us going most of the day....
