Based on 100% genuine guest reviews.

This country inn is in the heart of James Herriot's world. An ideal place to stay, unwind and enjoy your hosts' hospitality or take yourself out and about in some of North Yorkshire's most beautiful scenery. Enjoy real ale in front of an open fire in the cold winter months, or watch the world meander by from the picnic benches on a warm summer's night in front of the inn. After a long day there is no need to be off as there are several spacious en-suite rooms for you to relax and re-energise with a shower, or soak those aches away in a relaxing bath. The Bay Horse Country Inn has 7 spacious letting rooms all tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard. All rooms are en-suite with both bath and shower facilities. Each one has a TV, tea and coffee making facilities This 18th century traditional coaching inn is located in the idyllic village of Rainton, a sleepy hollow where time stands still. A place where village spirit draws strangers and locals together, set midway between the Yorkshire Moors and Dales just minutes from the A1. This country inn is in the heart of James Herriot's world. An ideal place to stay, unwind and enjoy your hosts' hospitality or take yourself out and about in some of North Yorkshire's most beautiful scenery.

The Bay Horse Country Inn Rainton
This place was a very welcoming cosy little country Inn with a nice coal fire and excellent home cooked food. The room was nice except for the window not closing properly which was a bit disappointing as it was freezing outside. A phone call to a joiner could fix this in an hour. Overall, very good.

The small touches made a big difference
This has got to be one of the most welcoming landlords I've ever met. The room was the cleanest room I've stayed in (and I've stayed in dozens for work and leisure). The small touches such as a soft toy on the bed, matching flowers to the ones in artwork, having books and magazines available and not stinting on the complimentary tea and coffee all added up to a very pleasant stay.
I've already recommended this hotel to someone who wants to treat their partner for Christmas. Not something I do lightly.

Wonderful village pub.
Very friendly and welcoming. The hosts were great! The food was very good-every second wednesday is homemade pie night with several choices and extremely good value for money! The full English breakfast was brilliant! Helpful local information given regarding travelling. Was only sorry that we only stayed one night and would definitely go again! Good old fashioned Yorkshire hospitality- can't beat it!

Comfortable country hideaway
Room was clean and comfortable, food was excellent, as was the breakfast. Topped off with a stroll around Thirsk the following morning. Chris and the staff gave us a warm welcome, already planning our return!
