The Gallery Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed 21 July 2014

My Wife and I stayed at The Gallery B&B for 3 nights in May 2014. The place was immaculate, and the breakfasts were excellent full-English breakfasts. There were freshly baked cookies in our room each afternoon/evening when we returned from our area travels. WI-FI is in the room. Our room was one of the least expensive, a bit small, and on the street side of the house, but we would definitely stay here again. Parking is on the street, but we were provided with an over-night parking badge which worked well. The location is directly across from the World of James Heriott Museum and right off the Thirsk town square with several good pubs and restaurants within a very short walk.

Small cottage style guest house, central inThirsk which is an excellent base for viewing beautiful North Yorkshire. Kathryn and Steve are such friendly, co-operative and gifted hosts. The breakfast is absolutely amazing with so much choice it's mind blowing. No praise is too high!

We stayed at The Gallery whilst visiting Thirsk last week and had a wonderful time. It is in a great location just off the Market Place with it's many pubs, cafes and shops. Our room was fantastic with lovely clean bathroom and really special touches which included Kathryn's homemade cookies, a very well stocked tea tray and chocolates by our bed! Breakfast was excellent with so much to choose from - I would recommend the cooked breakfast! Would stay at The Gallery again as Kathryn made us feel so welcome. Thanks for a great stay.

Room Tip: Rooms all good.

You will not find a friendlier or warmer welcome than at the Gallery. If you're looking to be warped back 200 years, yet with every modern convenience, this is the place. Central but quiet, small and personal. The breakfast...well...you'll look long and hard to match it.
In short, if you want a taste of real Thirsk and be a stone's throw from James Harriot, book yourself a pleasant stay at the Gallery. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: I stayed in the room off the courtyard toward the back. My travelling companion in the one on the st...

We have stayed in B&Bs all around Yorkshire and The Gallery just off the town square in Thirsk beats them all hands down. Welcoming hostess, charming room, excellent breakfasts, very clean, lots of information on the locale and tourist attractions and well based for accessing the Dales, York and the coast. We will definitely return again.
