Barry's St. James House in Thirsk had it all. Great bed, lovely breakfast and able to help with my gluten free diet, steps into town to the James Harriott Center, very convenient bus service up to Ripon Cathedral since I did not have my own car. Very telling that some guests I met come back on a very regular schedule to bask in this personalized care. My room at the top of the house basically gave me the entire floor to myself! What a treat in this eagle eyrie! Pub next door was very helpful with gluten free as well for an early dinner. Wonderful antiques as Barry used to be an antique dealer and one surmises that he still has his hand in that particular pot!!!
