We needed a venue for a surprise birthday weekend for my 80 year old mum, for 24 of us ranging from age 3 to 83 (and a dog) . Laskill fitted the bill perfectly. Mandy was the most brilliant hostess from making us feel completely welcome on arrival to looking after everyone's needs for the weekend.

Food-wise we started with homemade cake and tea in sunshine on the terrace with great views (it's lovely area), had a relaxing afternoon followed by pre- dinner champagne in the sitting room, complete with log fire, then a delicious 4 course dinner in the dining room. We had a prawn starter, beautifully cooked roast beef and a choice of puddings, followed by local cheeses. All first rate. Breakfast was also generous and delicious. We all had breakfast together (even those staying in the cottages).

For accomodation we filled the country house and took 3 cottages across the road at Laskill Grange. All rooms in the main house were very clean , spacious and comfortable. We were in the tulip room with lovely views. The cottages were also great, very comfortable and gave us the flexibility we needed.

On the sunday we went on a trip to the magical Rievaulx abbey, 3 miles drive (or walk!) away. There's plenty to do in the area, we could have very happily stayed for much longer. The kids (big and small) enjoyed the hot tub, and there's a play area. Mandy took the little ones out in the morning to feed the chickens and the two pigs which they loved.

Overall it was a perfect weekend. Everyone was completely enamoured with Mandy and I can't rate her highly enough for her efforts in looking after everyone so well. We just need an excuse for another one now....

We recently attended for a small wedding for a friend from Australia. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were looked after brilliantly by Mandy. The house, the location, the food and hospitality could not have been better. Will definately be back for more!

This B&B was excellent. We stayed in it for our anniversary before staying at the Black Swan in Helmsley, which was not so good in the hospitality department.

The owner of the house is perfectly charming and very personable.AShe made us feel very welcome and we were pleasantly surprised that sue to it being a Sunday there was no other guests and we were upgraded to the best room.

It has a perfect setting overlooking fields, forests and moorland. The breakfast was continental and full english. All very good. The host also offers a full home cooked meal for guests which is set and very reasonable. I beleive it is very well spoken of locally, infact locals were coming for tea that evening.

An honestly bar is also available which is a nice touch, being 8 miles form Helmsley.

we'd booked laskill country house for my 40th birthday, the plan was for a small gathering of family and freinds to have a meal and a drink together. from the moment we arrived to leaving on the Sunday we were treated exceptionally well by Mandy and her team, nothing was too much trouble, and Mandy was superb as a host. The house itself is also suberb, a perfect venue for our evening, with a large private dining room and really comfy lounge to spend the evening in, the kids loved the hot tub as well the borad games and dvds available to keep them occupied, the bedrooms were of a high standard with the comfiest beds I've slept in. The food was really nice, the vening meal was well cooked, the breakfast was lovely but the soup sandwiches and home baked scones were to die for. The clay pigeon shooting which is available as an activity booked through Mandy was a great way to end the weekend

We stayed for four nights at the Laskill Country House and we were not disappointed. We like Helmsley, a nearby market town, and the easy access to the North York moors. The house is situated in Bilsdale which really is a lovely part of North Yorkshire. You might also wish to consider Laskill Grange.
