Reviewed 11 September 2015 via mobile

Have had a family weekend stay at the laburnum for the last three years. It is a home from home. Val is warm, friendly and goes out of her way to make your stay a good one.She is full of good advice and knowledge about where to visit and eat. The guest house is wonderfully clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious. I especially enjoy the fresh fruit. Next years visit is already booked!

Stayed: September 2015, travelled with family

Of the eighteen different places to stay during a whirlwind tour of the Uk in August, including hotels, clubs and B&Bs Laburham was the best. Val was the perfect host, full of local knowledge and so helpful, the ambience was great, the food terrific and the bed so comfortable. Ample car parking was a welcome bonus.

Another excellent stay at Laburnum House, this time it was for two nights allowing us to visit family and attend a friend's wedding. On our arrival we received the usual warm welcome from Val and got ourselves settled in to the 'Thirsk' room. The room itself was comfortable, clean and modern with wifi, a good sized television, tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water and a range of biscuits all available. The en suite included an excellent shower and complimentary toiletries. A wide range of breakfast options were also available with fruit, yogurt, cereal and cooked all on offer. During our stay we took full advantage of the location, both for quick visits to town and easy access to major roads for trips out. Val remains an excellent host who is keen to ensure that her guests enjoy their stay and is always willing to go the extra mile if necessary - this time is was helping us in our last minute search for button-hole flowers! Laburnum House definitely remains on our 'Highly Recommended' list.

We booked in for a night and stayed for 4. Would of stayed a week but was full. This B and B lived up to all the previous reviews on trip advisor
The welcome was warm and friendly and cal is such an optimistic person. We stayed in the Thirsk room very clean spacious and everything you needed. We needed our first breakfast at 6.15 and val just smiled and said no probs and don't worry I will knock you up at 5.30 just to make sure you don't sleep in
And failing that I will ring you
This helps you sleep well
We went to Whitby climbed up to the abbey and yes cal there are 199 steps
Guess we can say we followed in the steps of Bram Stokers (Dracula )
We bought delicious kippers from Fortunes Smokehouse and our best treat was to eat in the famous Magpie Cafe. But queue early
We then drove to Robin Hoods Bay a small fishing village five miles south of whitby
Got wonderful views and nice cafes
With a family friendly beach
During our stay we went to Harlow Carr Botanical Gardens near Harrogate and wow we went to Betty's Tea Room whilst there
Ayah arts Falls is a must too
All in all without the help of cal we would never of known about these wonderful places
Val also recommended
Fountains Abbey
Bolton Abbey
And York Minster and the Shambles
Laburnum Hpuse is on reach of all these
Will be back in 2016

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
