“Perfect for families”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Geoff and Julie simply could not have been kinder of more accommodating. We arrived late and Geoff welcomed us with Yorkshire grace, even offered us a cup of tea to warm up. The rooms are marvelous, roomy even by U.S. standards, and both comfortable and beautifully decorated. We opted for two rooms (one for the two of us and a separate room for our daughters). Both rooms were lovely with beautiful views; ours looked over the tiled rooftops into the Hambleton Hills, and the girls loved their view of sheep and cows grazing in a nearby pasture. From the girls' perspective, the free WiFi was a huge plus.

Breakfast each morning was something we looked forward to (and something our daughters are still wistfully looking back on). Everything was simply superb! I wish we could make Thirsk and Kirk Gate an annual family trip -- we'd stay again in a heartbeat if we could.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side are east-facing if you love beautiful sunrises, and there's very little...

once again a great stay in this gem of a hotel. in Thirsk my favourite place to relax, Geoff and Julie are THE perfect hosts, nothing is ever too much trouble, I arrived at 9ish in the evening and received the warmest of welcomes with even the offer of something to eat whilst my bag was taken up to my room where I know I will get a good nights sleep as its quiet and peaceful, before getting up for a wonderful breakfast of local produce.
Being on the same street as the world of James Herriot is a must for all fans like myself and the hotel is a couple of minutes walk to the main centre of Thirsk .
I would not want to stay anywhere else than here! and highly recommend the Kirkgate House.

We enjoyed a lovely night and were very welcomed by Goeff and Julie.
The house is lovely and they made us feel very at home. We had a lovely room with a large and comfy bed and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. They are also very helpful in recommending places to eat in and around the area.
Thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: We stayed on the front and was still very quiet.

Geoff & Julie,

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay with you in Thirsk. In many respects those were the two best days in our three-week visit to the UK. The atmosphere of your small English town was delightful. And of course we are all big James Herriot fans.

The two of you were such welcoming and competent hosts. We felt at home immediately, and you made everything work just right -- the room, the meals, the suggestions about where to have dinner. And a special thanks for the Wensleydale cheese. That was a most unexpected parting gift.

But how could anyone top the special program you arranged for us: THE OLYMPIC TORCH passing right beneath our window! I don't know how you managed that, but thanks!

Room Tip: Getting to the parking area behind the hotel is a tight squeeze. We managed OK with a VW Golf, but...

Centrally situated in Thirsk - just a few doors down from James Herriot's surgery!! The rooms are large and clean, the landlady and landlord are very friendly and helpful - nothing is too much for them. Excellent breakfast!! Very English.
We'll be visiting them again most likely in 2014.
