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....

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
