Wonderful B&B in the centre of Thirsk, Kathryn the hostess, made us very welcome and showed us to our room which was delightful. The Gallery has kept its original character which meant the rooms are quirky.....in the nicest sense of the word, and the best use of space has been made. The bed was comfortable with good quality bedding, extra...

We needed and overnighter on our way back from the lake-district, via Richmond, to Nottingham. As fellow B&B hosts, we were very impressed with the furnishings and decor. Kathryn made us very welcome and leant us a parking disc so that, having unloaded our luggage we were able to park on the street nearby. Thirk centre, just a few minutes...

Thank you! We are indeed ideally located for travellers going north - south or vice versa and Thirsk has lots to offer for overnighters with a variety of restaurants and pubs as well as a nice market place to wander around. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.

The Gallery has kept its original character and even though you’re in the centre of Thirsk you feel as if you are “getting away from it all”. Kathryn, the owner, has a keen eye for detail. Top quality breakfasts, comfortable rooms, well worth a visit if you are staying in Thirsk.

Thank you! We do have lots of original features, such as the original 200 year old fireplaces in the bedrooms, in our house but we like to think it has quite a contemporary feel as well. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.

What a delightful place to stay. We arrived and were welcomed by our host. She was wonderfully friendly and welcoming. I particularly liked that we had a couple of other bedding options, not just a duvet, but a sheet if we wanted it - which we did as it was quite warm. Breakfast was delicious and generous.

Thank you! It was a pleasure having you stay with us! We like to offer lots of options with bedding - duvet, spare sheet, extra blanket, bedspread - so hopefully our guests are never too hot or too cold!

We booked into the Gallery for a two night stay, and were so pleased to find this lovely Bed & Breakfast accommodation. We received a very warm welcome from Kathryn, who is a mine of information, and were shown to our very well appointed twin bedded room. There was plenty of information regarding things to do locally and further afield....

Thank you for this lovely review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I'm sorry you weren't able to rate us 'excellent' because of the parking, as you have mentioned we are perfectly located close to all amenities but this does mean we have no onsite parking (our cottage was built long before cars came along!). Parking is...

We took all three rooms for the family, in Thirsk for a wedding. The rooms were comfortable and simply traditional with modern facilities. The attention to detail, and the little thoughtful touches, were a delight. The owners were kind and attentive to our needs, and communications before, during and after our stay were exemplary. Breakfast was comprehensive and abundant. We...

Centrally located in Thirsk the rooms are very well appointed, en suite. Little extras like chocolate, biscuits, teas, coffees, free wifi, toiletries, are a few items to name but...

I visited The Gallery with my girlfriend to attend Thirsk Races. The hospitality shown by Kathryn and the accommodation can only described as excellent. Located within walking distance of all areas of Thirsk and easy access to car parking makes the The Gallery a must short stay. I will definitely stay in the future and recommend to my friends.
