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.

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! More

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.... More

Thank you for this lovely review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

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... More

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.
