The room was spotless and breakfast was lovely, fresh fruit, proper bread for toast and a cooked breakfast that hit the spot. Val was full of useful places to visit and eat in the evening, we...

We stayed at Laburnum House this weekend, our second visit. Our lovely hostess, Val, is so warm and welcoming, she cooks the most amazing breakfast but also takes into consideration those who like fresh fruit, yoghurts and cereals. She's a local lady so has a vast knowledge of Thirsk. Laburnum House is beautifully appointed and decorated to a very high...

Stayed at Laburnum House for the second time in October 2016. This was for a cycling sportive event in Thirsk. As on our first visit a few months earlier Val and her partner were the best hosts anyone could ask for and went out of their way to make us feel very welcome and comfortable. Will definitely stay there again...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hello my name is Val and I am the proud owner of laburnum house, a deceptively spacious home with contemporary furnishings, overlooking the Hambleton Hills.I am a Yorkshire lass born and bred, and have lived in the area for 55 years so i have good local knowledge. I can recommend places to visit, where to dine, and wonderful walks – as i am a keen walker myself. I am also passionate about Yorkshire!The house is very deceiving from the outside as you will see. There is a new toilet and hand basin downstairs, the guests dining room is large and beautifully furnished, with a fridge, and adjoining the dining room is a new bespoke orangery just finished in time for spring 2013. It is fully furnished with 3 and 2 seater settee and matching armchair and large footstool, 42″ flat TV, Roberts CD/radio player, and also a selection of board games and good reading.There are 3 rooms – 2 double rooms with ensuite, all newly decorated and large flat screen TVs. And a twin room, with remote control Tempur beds and a new bathroom with shower just a few steps over the landing. ... more   less
