A charming former coaching inn overlooking Thirsk's cobbled marketplace, between the beautiful North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales – breakfast included


With a hall-hung Georgian coaching clock giving a nod to its rich history, The Golden Fleece Hotel sits grandly in a 16th-century listed building on Thirsk’s cobbled marketplace, between the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales – ripe for exploration by foot or on bike.

Home to just 26 classically styled rooms, the former coaching inn is the perfect base for visiting all that Yorkshire has to offer, from the knot of narrow streets unfurling from the awe-inspiring Gothic cathedral in York, to North Yorkshire’s wind-whipped dales and moors and the charming seaside town of Whitby, sitting pretty beneath the haunting remains of an atmospheric abbey which stars in Bram Stoker's Dracula. The Golden Fleece Hotel won a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Classic in style and design, rooms flaunt bursts of personality through splashes of statement wallpaper, richly textured fabrics in jewel hues, and boldly patterned cushions and throws. A home-from-home vibe comes thanks to comfy double beds, speedy Wi-Fi, and all your creature comforts, while modern en-suite bathrooms are fitted with showers and some with baths.


- Wi-Fi
- Tea and coffee facilities
- Flatscreen TV with SKY channels

With splashes of moody jewel hues and a striking chandelier, the characterful restaurant is the perfect spot to retreat to after a day pounding the windswept moors. A classic British pub-style menu with a refined twist takes on the likes of goats’ cheese and walnut mousse to start, followed by rib-eye steak with chunky chips or roast fillet of hake with cauliflower purée – opt for the seafood-sharer if you’re feeling peckish. Retaining many of the historical features of an English coaching inn, the warm and welcoming wood-panelled bar is lined with local ale and craft beers from across the globe, while a gin menu will satiate the tastes of juniper fans.


The Golden Fleece Hotel sits grandly in a listed building on Thirsk’s cobbled marketplace, between the North York Moors (a ten-minute drive away) and the Yorkshire Dales (a 45-minute drive away) – ripe for exploration by foot or on bike. Nearby is The World of James Herriot, the cascading Aysgarth Falls and Sutton Bank, with its staggering views over the Vale of York and the Vale of Mowbray. Also close by are the beautiful Fountains Abbey and Castle Howard stately home.
