I first stayed at Laburnum House 2 years ago and didn't even contemplate trying somewhere else this time. Val is the most welcoming owner you could wish to meet. Her hospitality is first class. My husband was with me this time and is a Coeliac requiring a Gluten Free Breakfast. Val provided a cooked breakfast with Gluten free toast both... More

I booked 3 rooms for 2 nights for a family occasion. This has only been the first night and I just couldn't resist writing this review to comment on the extreme cleanliness of all the rooms and the friendly customer service that the owner has provided so far. Please note therefore that I will be writing in the present tense!!!!... More

I recently stayed at Laburnum House whilst staying in Thirsk for a plastering course. After driving for almost four hours I was very pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome and lovely atmosphere at LH. The owner Val was brilliant from start to finish. She offered me a glass of wine after I first arrived and even offered to drive me... More

Definitely a stay to remember! I live in a local village but had a friend visiting for the weekend. To make it a little holiday for myself, I booked us to stay at Laburnum House. From the very first contact of booking a room with Val, I knew we would be well looked after. We received a very warm welcome... More

I have stayed at Val's before and as I am in the travel business have also recommended Laburnum House to my clients. The redecoration and new Orangery have improved the guest house even more and Val remains on hand as an invaluable help with everything from recommending walks/restaurants in the locality to catering for special diets/requests. A website online booking... More

My brother and I stayed at Laburnum House for five nights from 10th March 2014 so that we could attend a family matter in Sheffield that week. I have stayed in many B&B's, but Laburnum House is a cut above everything I have previously experienced. The property was immaculate, very tastefully decorated and our rooms were like home from home.... More

I Stayed for two nights while doing a coarse nearby. I don't stay in many b&b's so wasn't sure what to expect but I felt very welcome when I got there. Very clean and we'll decorated. Close to town and a lovely breakfast in the morning

What makes Laburnum House different is not just the lovely, immaculately clean rooms, the good location, the fabulous breakfast or even just the attention to detail, but the warm welcome you get here. I arrived a stranger & left feeling I had made a new friend. Absolutely delightful, thank you Val.

Stayed for one night at Laburnum house whilst on a two day course nearby. Val the owner was very friendly and gave me lots of good advice about the course I would be doing. Laburnum house was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and like home from home. Val is very welcoming and friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed having fresh milk and... 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
