Quirky is the keyword here. Barry is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. He is very helpful with his knowledge of the local area. This was our 2nd visit as we are racegoers to Thirsk racecourse so it is really located well for visitors to the race course or just for staying around Thirsk. Location is just... More

Barry, the owner, is very welcoming and full of information. On arrival you feel like you are being welcomed into his home. We had a very comfortable room, extremely clean and spacious. Breakfast was exactly to order, timely and delicious. We were only there for one night en route to somewhere else but we had a very enjoyable stopover. Would... More

Lovely spotlessly clean, unusual accommodation. Barry and the two Joannes give you a great welcome and Barry is a mine of information on places to visit. The beds are very comfy and the breakfast is delicious all made to your specific requirements and at the time you request. Would definitely stay again

My mother and I stayed 1 night as a stop over on the way to Scotland. We did not make a prior booking, however Barry was very welcoming and suggested a great pub (can't remember the name) to go for dinner. We had an amazing dinner, one of our best experiences in the UK. Barry made us very welcome and... More

St. James House is an ancient building with an interesting history filled with the owners collection of antiques. Barry, the owner, is very talkative and was able to give us lots of information on the house and the surrounding area. The rooms are old fashioned, patterned carpets, coloured bathroom suite but everything is clean and very comfortable.

We go to Thirsk every year for my birthday and have a day at the races. We have stayed at several B&Bs over the years and due to late booking this year we found accommodation here for two couples at cheaper rates than elsewhere (on race days). Barry the owner was friendly on the phone booking and didn't require a... More

Thank you for availing the room @ a last minute request. Even though we stayed for only a night but we enjoyed how homely and clean the room was. Excellent service, the best part was that it was sincere.💐 Definitely staying over the next time we visit our church Ministry in Topcliffe.👠👠 Kind Regards, Sanday Family👫

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of touring the British Isles with my family. A "must see" for my mother and my aunts and uncles was the town of Thirsk due its associations with the James Herriot books and television series. The St. James House was a quaint and charming place to stay in close proximity to the desired... More
