Val has great knowledge about the area and recommended Northallerton market to my daughter and I which we did visit after seeing James Herriot's house which is amazing and should not be missed We had the twin bed room which has Tempur mattresses plus remote...

Stayed for the weekend. The first thing on arrival is the absolutely fantastic welcome by Val who you immediately feel you have known for years! The second thing you notice is that the place is immaculate and the decor lovely! Thirdly, the bedroom was wonderful and the beds are remote control! Such a novelty! I would highly recommend family and... More

Val and Lee were great hosts and I will definitely returning in the near... More

Travelled up from London was greeted by Val who was so welcoming and friendly. A beautiful room with ensuite and the whole place throughout clean and tidy. It... More

Of the eighteen different places to stay during a whirlwind tour of the Uk in August, including hotels, clubs and B&Bs Laburham was the best. Val was the perfect host, full of local knowledge and so helpful, the ambience was great, the food terrific and the bed so comfortable. Ample car parking was a welcome bonus.

Another excellent stay at Laburnum House, this time it was for two nights allowing us to visit family and attend a friend's wedding. On our arrival we received the usual warm welcome from Val and got ourselves settled in to the 'Thirsk' room. The room itself was comfortable, clean and modern with wifi, a good sized television, tea and coffee... More
