I travelled from Wakefield on the train and Val kindly picked me up at 8.30 at night from Thirsk station. As soon as we got in we had a nice chat about Superskills and Val made me feel at ease with her knowledge of Superskills. I am staying in the York room which has a king size bed and a large flat screen TV. The room is really nicely decorated, clean and tidy. The room has towels and all shower facilities are provided. I didn't have to worry about getting up as Val gave me a wake up call. There is a Tesco Superstore close by which is really useful.
Val also drove me to Superskills on the first morning.
If you are looking for somehere to stay whilst on a Superskills course or you are generally visiting the Thirsk area then I would highley recomend this B&B.
As a point of interest the James Herriot museum is in town ( Do you remember all creatures great and small ?)

- 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
