About The Gallery
Kathryn and Steve offer guests a warm welcome and award winning, delicious breakfasts using locally sourced foods.
The Grade II listed cottage dates back 200 years. In addition to its history as a private dwelling, before World War ΙΙ it was the Thirsk Telephone Exchange and in more recent years an art gallery. Richard Bennett, who owned the art gallery, still paints and some of his local art work is displayed in the breakfast room and can be purchased from Kathryn and Steve.
The Gallery has a Visit England 4 star silver award and breakfast award. Silver awards recognise high quality accommodation and customer service.
The cottage is deceptively spacious, with three en-suite rooms retaining many of their original features, such as open fireplaces and wooden beamed ceilings.
The Gallery is perfectly placed to explore Thirsk, being less than two minutes walk from the cobbled market square, with its many independent shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. The World of James Herriot is across the road from the B&B, the Thirsk Museum is next door and the racecourse is a five minute walk away.
Thirsk is an ideal base to explore the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors as well as York, Harrogate and Yorkshire’s beautiful coastline, including the resorts of Whitby, Scarborough and Robin Hoods Bay.
