We stayed one night at Val's excellent BandB. The house is spotlessly clean and with well tended and colourful garden. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms modern and tastefully done out, and there is a nice bright conservatory available for guests to use. The house is located very close to the centre of Thirsk and everything is within walking distance. But what really sets this place apart is the quality of the welcome and attentiveness of the owner, Val. She is a very friendly lady who gave us a warm welcome and showed us round, and took our (varied) breakfast orders for the next morning. The attention to detail is excellent. There is everything we could have wanted in the rooms, including bottled water, tea/coffee snacks etc.. Val was so accommodating of there being four of us, given she had only a double and a single room available. She put up an extra bed in the double room. She was also fine about my husband needing gluten free food and provided vegetarian breakfast for one of our sons. The breakfast spread was delicious, including several kinds of fresh fruit, good choice of cereals, lovely fresh toasted bread, preserves, etc, and of course cooked breakfasts for all! Val was also very accommodating about us returning late after a family party. In short, she could not have done more to make us feel at home, which must be the best accolade for a bed and breakfast! Great northern warm welcome and hospitality. I would not hesitate to recommend this place.

three of us stayed at vals within the last month and we could have breakfast from 5 til 9
Most b and bs won't do early breakfasts
Brilliant place to stay, very welcoming and nothing's too much trouble for Val
Fab free wi-fi . Very comfortable beds with an abundance of fresh towels everyday if needed
Plenty of off road car parking and smoking areas for them that need it . Val did some washing for us which is great when needed.
All in all we give it 5 stars

Stayed for 2 nights the weekend of 12 August. The facilities were very good but more importantly, the owner Val, was incredibly accommodating. She can't do enough to please and nothing was too much trouble - even an early breakfast to suit our plans. A really good B&B made made excellent by the efforts of the hostess.

Just got home from staying 2 nights at Laburnum House so my husband could take part in a cycle sportive. Val was the perfect host, not only did she get up extra early on the day of the race to ensure Tony got a good breakfast before his race, but she also hosted his parents after the race by giving them a cup of tea & biscuits in the lovely conservatory. Laburnum House is spotlessly clean, has an impeccable host & is a real home from home. Highly recommend it as I know you will love your stay there.

My husband was taking part In a cycle event In Thirst so he needed somewhere to stay for Friday and Saturday night. He found Laburnum House through Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed!!!. Val the owner made us feel very welcome, the rooms were very comfortable and had everything you could want. We had an excellent nights sleep and a superb breakfast. My husband needed to be up early to start his cycling event on Saturday morning and Val was more than happy to get up early to make him his breakfast to get him on his way !!. We will definitely stay there again if we visit Thirsk. Thanks Val

Room Tip: York room was nice and quet
