We have just stayed for a couple of nights in Laburnum House, a delightful B & B in Thirsk. We highly reccomend this for either a short or longer stay. Our hosts Val & Lee couldn't do enough for us. They were polite, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable about the local area and had time for us to chat with them. The... More

I would recommend this place to everyone but that would leave me with less opportunity of getting a room in the future! From the moment you walk in, it is clear that attention to detail is the theme; not a spec of dust anywhere with tastefully done decor and a very high standard of cleanliness. Honestly, I truly do not... More

Nothing was too much for Val . What an amazing host she is we must of drove her crazy asking for extra hairdryers,... More

I am currently staying with Val at Laburnum House and it is wonderful. From the moment I walked through the door, I was made to feel welcome and at home which I was particularly grateful for as I am away from home on a training course at Superskills. I unexpectedly arrived quite early in the morning but Val made me... More

We have just returned from staying at Laburnum House for 2 nights. From booking to us getting a little lost on the way there, Valerie was a great help and came out to the road to make sure we got to the right place. What a lovely house, we had the two rear rooms - Thirsk and York (kingsize beds)... More

We stayed overnight at Laburnum House last week, wish it had been for longer!! A fantastic welcome from Val and Lee, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were perfect, large, clean and tasteful as was the bathroom. Attention to detail and provision of everything a guest could need was second to none. Val delights in making her guests feel comfortable... More

We booked to stay at Laburnum House at very short notice as we had to travel to a funeral. From the first phone call until the moment we left we met with warmth and kindness. The rooms were clean, attractive and very comfortable, the surroundings charming and we had a really good night's sleep. The breakfast was first class and... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Laburnum House at short notice due our having unforeseen family commitments in the area. As on other occasions, we were received with the warmest of welcomes and nothing was too much trouble throughout our visit. The accommodation remains of the highest standard, with a wide range of breakfast foods on offer. Val was... More

After staying here myself a few years ago for a work-related engagement I was keen to revisit it again with my partner so that she could experience for herself what I had long enthused about. I am delighted to say that everything was just as I remembered it. The surroundings are spotless, spacious and luxurious, her breakfasts remain absolutely fantastic,... More
