We chose the Gallery becuase it is rated number 2 in Thirsk by Tripadvisor and we have no regrets whatsoever about our choice. The Gallery is a quirky b n b full of character. Our room was substantial: roomy, excellent facilies and tastefully decorated. Other guest facilities include extensive guidance of the local area, and a DVD collection. Breakfast: excellent.

I am confident that you will not find a better b n b in the Thirsk area. Centrally situated, a warm and personable welcome, and clear expertise in the running of the business, this is a must-stay location.

Kathryn was an amazing hostess and accommodated our "up in the air" travel plans. The rooms were incredible clean and the bathroom was brand new. The James Herriot museum is right across the road and the centre of town is a one minute walk. Breakfast was excellent. There is also a neat little selection of books and movies to use while a guest here. Great place to stay :)

Room Tip: Double twin room has brand new bathroom

we stayed for one night with our parents, as we were going to the races in york and couldnt find a suitable place to stay in york, we arrived after the races and from stepping in the door, we had such a welcomimg feeling, kathryn is really the loveliest host,took us to our room, which was beautiful, with a cottagey feeling, and shed left us homemade cookies, there was lovely touches all around and we felt we were in a posh 5 star hotel,.The bed was lovely and comfortable and good nights sleep was had by all.The breakfast was worth the room for the nights money, we ate like kings and the food was fantastic with so many choices she left nothing out, we will definitely be returning again and would strongly recommend everyone to stay there, we have stayed in many guest houses including thirsk and this is by far the best , thanks kathryn and steve, my mam/dad are still talking about it, cu again soon xx

Room Tip: choose the twin beds at the back if you need quiet during night as double is in the front street, saying that we did have the window ajar so it may not be noisy after all

Thank for your lovely review, we're so glad you all enjoyed your stay. Although two of our rooms are at the front of the house on Kirkgate, it is a quiet street over night. Our location in the heart of Thirsk is ideal to be able to pop out to the shops and cafes etc and I think all our guests would agree that despite this location it is quiet at night. We look forward to seeing you again!

I feel compelled to join in with my Dad's review, below, to thank our host Kathryn for a truly memorable stay at the Gallery. We stayed two nights in August, 2013.

Kathryn has thought of every detail to delight a weary traveler. Homemade apricot cookies waiting in the room for you. FAST and free Wi-Fi. The most comfortable mattress and really nice bedding. The best hotel towels I've ever used. Takeout menus. A refrigerator in the breakfast room for the guests' use. Scrupulously clean room and immaculate and modern bathroom. A guest guide in the room with all of the details neatly - and well - presented. Coffee/tea set-up in the room. She has placed cool little placards at various places throughout the room to point out certain amenities or features.

Breakfast is simply amazing. A full English breakfast can be had anywhere in Great Britain, but nowhere but at the Gallery will you find one so good. Kathryn prides herself on sourcing her food locally, and the freshness and quality shows through.

The real treasure is Kathryn herself. She is genuinely interested in her guests, without being the least bit intrusive. She knew that we were planning to tour Helmsley Castle and Rievaulx Abbey, and she thoughtfully laid out visitor guides to those attractions alongside our breakfasts and she encouraged us to borrow those guides for our excursion. As my Dad's review mentioned, she got up early and made us a fantastic breakfast the morning of our second day, even though we told her we had to leave early and we would be satisfied if she could leave out cold cereal for us.

The Gallery itself is ideally located, literally across the street from the James Herriot Museum and just steps away from Thirsk's market square and its innumerable shops, eateries and pubs.

I would definitely book with Kathryn again, and I will not book anywhere else if I ever have the opportunity to visit the Yorkshire Dales again!

We were so lucky to come across this B&B during our two night stay in Thirsk for a friend's wedding. We arrived late on the Friday night and Kathryn made sure that all our needs and requirements were met until we checked out on the Sunday.
The rooms were filled with little treats and are spotlessly clean. The breakfast choice was just superb and I couldn't have asked for anything more than what we got for the time we were there.
If anyone was to ask where to stay I would recommend this place straight away.

Thank you, we're glad you enjoyed your time in Thirsk and especially your stay at The Gallery. I'm only sorry I can't arrange better weather but glad the rain didn't spoil the wedding day.
