Val & Lee are charming hosts. They are warm, friendly & chatty. My husband and I have stayed before so we expected to be welcomed back but this time we had my father with us and he was fully included in their hospitality. The breakfasts were scrummy - fresh fruit to start and we followed with smoked salmon, kippers and smoked haddock rather than the traditional full English (although this was available and was enjoyed by other guests) Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely decor and the rooms are spotless throughout. Comfy beds with 'real' continental quilts. We will be back as it is the ideal place for us to stay when we visit family in Thirsk.
- 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
