I stayed with Val for four nights while attending a course locally. From the moment I stepped through the door she was kindness itself. I immediately felt at home. I stayed in the Whitby room which was very comfortable and I had my own bathroom. Everything at Laburnam House is immaculate but it's the little things that made it extra... More

Val and Lee made us feel very welcome, and were quick to point out places of interest for us to visit. A beautiful property, very clean and spacious. Nothing was too much trouble. The bed was very comfortable and there was lots of choice at breakfast.

First class in every way. Nothing too much trouble for Val who went 'above and beyond'. Lovely home, pristine, gorgeous king size bed, and the most delicious array of fresh fruit at breakfast. Would certainly recommend.

A friendly welcome from Val to her well-equipped and well maintained home. Nothing was too much trouble for Val to ensure the comfort of her guests - she had bought in gluten-free bread for my one night stay.

I had a wonderful stay at Laburnum House. Everything was thought of, clean towels were offered every day, a very comfortable bed and my own en suite bathroom. Everything is recently modernised, I couldn't have imagined better accommodation. As I was travelling on my own I asked Val and Lee if there were any nice walks around the area and... More

A wonderful array of fruit for breakfast ... strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, fresh pineapple etc etc.... followed by good produce especially eggs, for a full cooked breakfast, we were even offered smoked salmon...
