I was recently in town to go racing at Thirsk Racecourse and am delighted that I chose to stay at Laburnum House. It is a delightful place, with very clean and comfortable rooms (I was in the York room, which I'm fairly certain had a king size bed and great en suite) and a very helpful and welcoming host in...

Val met me at the railway station with a warm welcome, took me back to her B & B and immediately offered me tea and cake. A genuine, friendly Yorkshire lady she made me feel welcome. My room was beautiful, spotlessly clean with good quality bedding and abundant toiletries. Breakfast was excellent, I chose to have it in the kitchen... More

Myself and daughter stayed with Val whilst attending a wedding in Northallerton, the accommodation was modern and immaculate with attention to detail. The breakfast was cooked to perfection, along with greek yoghurt and homemade jams, definitely not a greasy spoon cafe! I was worried what to do with our dog whilst away at the wedding but Val came to the... More

In a situation where I needed to get away and gather my thoughts. Looked at other B and B s in and around the are but kept going back to vals. The hospitality and accommodation is far superior to anything that I have ever stayed at. Val even did my washing ironing etc. and provided me with a packed lunch... More

My wife and I recently stayed for a night at Laburnham House having been guided there by reviews on Trip Advisor. I have to say the excellent reviews are deserved. Val is a warm , no nonsense Yorkshire lass who makes you feel a welcome part of her home from the off. The room was spotless, welcoming and homely, the... More

Fabulous stay, fabulous welcome, fabulous breakfast. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for Val and yet again I would suggest you look no further. This was our 3rd stay whilst visiting elderly relatives in Thirsk. The location is perfect being a short walk from town with plenty to see and do in this beautiful county. Enjoy, enjoy enjoy!

First class.Val was more than helpful to us on our visit.She slept on the floor in her living room to make space for us.She was fully booked so didn't have to do this for us (we had never stayed there before) she is just one of life's lovely people.To top it all the accommodation and food is excellent

We have stayed before several times and have never been disappointed. A really warm welcome, goes out of her way to ensure you want for nothing. Spick and span surroundings and always got time for a chat and a brew! Can recommend without hesitation.

Val rang us all up to say she was having a masseur Jon Carlisle to do Swedish massage, Reiki and Hypnotherapy at her B & B. Val got us 50% off and my massage - was fantastic. Had it in Val's living room - was quiet and calming. I thoroughly enjoyed this and Val has made another date for three... More

We returned again for another week staying in Val's B&B (we would not need to stay anywhere else in Thirsk). Much as already been written about her, welcoming, very helpful manner, delicious breakfast on offer and the immaculate comfort of Laburnum House. Nothing has changed there and we will be back next year. Do read on. Being based in Thirsk... More

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
