Laskill Country House
Ranked #1 of 3 Hawnby B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 May 2013

Stayed as a foursome for two nights on dinner B & B terms. Everything was right: a lovely house, nicely decorated; tea and cake on arrival each day; comfortable beds; log fires; and an excellent four-course dinner with good choice of wines. Mandy is a very welcoming host with exactly the right customer service approach. She remembered our names, chatted to us, offered a better wine at the same price when the one we wanted had run out, and provided goat's cheese on the second day for one of our party who could not eat cow's.

Dining is at a communal table, which was fine by us, and the evening meal was very good quality. The outdoor jacuzzi was an unusual feature for a British B&B, and we enjoyed using it in weak spring sunshine after our walk.

Booked 8 rooms as a shooting party on a bit of a punt. Usually stay in Helmsley. Mandy was friendly, good humoured and organised an excellent dinner and breakfast for us. My room was large with a very good quality mattress and linen. Reports of the other rooms were all positive apart from one who moaned because he ended up with the singe room and single bed.
Red wine was got in specially and she charged modest corkage on the white that I took. Large living room with log fire made it feel very homely and we helped ourselves to the well stocked bar and had a reckoning up the next morning. We had a very reasonable rate db&b and the whole thing cost about half what it would in one of Helmsleys best. The nicest part that everyone commented on was the warm welcome and a feeling of being 'at home' Another feature not found in town is silence and beautiful views.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms in the main house, otherwise a 50 yard walk to converted outbuidings and a self contain...

Very nice and welcoming! There is a warm log fire in the front room and tasty breakfast. The room was cosy and had good views. Great location if you have a car and the views from the house are beautiful!

Thank you so much to Mandy and Joe who made our short stay at Laskill Country House such a welcome October half term break. Mandy upgraded us to the HoneyMoon suite which was a real treat. The fourposter bed looked out onto the glorious colourful, autumn views of the local countryside. We were truely spoilt with both a separate luxurious bathroom and shower. The breakfast was perfect and a great start to the day before a memorable walk from Helmsley to Reiviex Abbey, which is well worth a visit. We had our first evening meal at The House. Mandy made this very special and cooked quail as it was in season. Nothing was too much trouble and the whole experience was very relaxing because of the homely and comfy surroundings. After a long walk nothing could be better than a soak in a very big bath followed by drinks in front of an open log fire and finished off with a lovely home cooked meal. The feathers in Helmsley was also a great place to eat for a bar meal. A great break at a very reasonable price. A brillliant find.

Room Tip: Go for the 4 poster, room with a view, you will not regret it.

We hired the house for a special family birthday. Mandy could not have been more accomodating and her team were brilliant. The food was simple but perfect and nothing was too much trouble for Mandy. We had the run of the house and used all the bedrooms which were comfortable with lovely personal touches. Can highly recommend the garden hotub! We would definately use again for a similar occasion it was a home from home with none of the work. Thank you Mandy!

Stayed one night on our drive through Yorkshire, and found Laskill a comfortable respite. Mandy and Joe were perfect hosts, the room was comfortable and cushy, the breakfast enormous. We ended up staying for dinner, also, and it was one of our favorite times on our trip, eating and laughing with 2 other couples. Couldn't have found a better play to land and plan to return on my next trip to the UK.

We stayed at Laskill Country House on 17th August 2012 and it was truly special. A beautiful country house with just the right mixture of luxury and 'lived in ' comfort. While the surroundings were stunning, the house did not intimidate but just felt really welcoming. The bedrooms were splendid and the views just perfect.
Mandy, the owner was great, we arrived at 8.30pm, with two hungry teenagers in tow and having only booked B&B, we needed to find somewhere to eat, that would allow us to take our dog. Mandy phoned round some local restaurants, sorted us out a table and explained about the pooch. She really went the extra mile to help.
The next morning, we had a perfect breakfast, served in the gorgeous dining room, served by the still chirpy Mandy. Even though she had been up late the night before and was getting ready for the arrival of a wedding party in the afternoon, Mandy was relaxed and friendly and just lovely.
I can not recommend Laskill enough. Simply perfect.
