Depending on which Thirsk bed and breakfast you pick, you might have a secure parking spot to leave your car when you arrive. As you're settling into your room, you can start to make use of the facilities, which often include things like a flat-screen TV on the wall, a kettle for making hot drinks and free WiFi, which you can use to plan your break. On Expedia, you'll be able to check whether the B&B has an ensuite bathroom or shared, family-sized facilities. There are other features to look out for, too, like an in-room desk – perfect if you need to catch up on a little work during your stay – or pet-friendly B&Bs, so you don't have to leave the dogs at home. After a comfortable night's sleep, you can fuel up for the day with a proper English breakfast, or lighter options, like scrambled eggs on toast or fruit and yogurt. If you're looking for a different type of break, maybe a few nights getting into Manchester activities might be more your speed.
