A homely fully kitted quiet place away from urban hustles and a wonderful host!
We all had a wonderful time and the house gave us a good starting point for our York adventures.
clean and well equipped with some milk and croissants to welcome us. Slept 4 of us and two dogs
We managed to get lost so arrived very late but Judy was very welcoming. The farm is lovely with a beautiful garden lots of chicks and three friendly dogs. One of whom Brutus Maximus came for a walk with us and our dogs. It is about 25-30 mins from York and the University. Definitely recommended as a base for York and the countryside of the East Riding.
Nice cottage but slighrly overpriced.
Lovely cottage, friendly hosts.
Countryside disappointing. Very flat just like home from home.
Our perfect country cottage getaway
You'll find these pretty cottages nestled down long country lanes within the picturesque village of Thorganby. They are perfectly situated for a country 'get away from it all' break and are within a short car ride from Central York and York races. There are not enough superlatives to tell you how excellent, first-rate, fantastic these cottages and, if preferred B&B are. Judy, the proud and equally excellent owner, has a great eye for detail. The cottages feel cosy yet spacious and are equipped with everything you can possibly need. We love the cracking log fire in the out of season months and in summer we sit with a glass of wine in our private, bunting strung meticulously kept private garden. If preferred, you can sit out on the large lawn a facing area hedged with flowers and complete with BBQ. If I could, I'd buy them! which just about says it all.
A great cottage in a pleasant quiet rural location
The property is well equipped and the owner made us very welcome. The cottage in which we stayed is a converted single storey barn which was very comfortable for our family.
Our cottage had its own private garden where we could sit out in the evening when the weather was nice. The kids could play on the large grassed area next to the cottage, or if we wanted to stretch our legs we could walk down the country lanes and local footpaths. One day we watched a herd of around 20 Roe Deer making their way along the edge of a local wood.
It was so nice to be able to sit outside the cottage watching and listening to the sounds of nature. The absence of road traffic noise was absolutely fantastic, allowing us to have a really quiet and excellent break. We were also able to visit York and its many attractions and would recommend Thorganby Farm Cottages as a perfect location to stay.
Perfect cottage at a perfect location!
Thorganby Farm Cottages are located at a quiet road close to a little village with a pub, but still only a few miles away from York. The wide views from the cottage and nice garden are magnificent!
Last visit was our second and this time we stayed in Celandine (first time in Curlew). The cottages are convenient, clean and have everything you need at a good standard. Perfect for two persons for both a short break and longer holiday. Next time we hope to ‘experience’ the newly built 2 bed roomed De Lux cottage.
We would like to thank the owner Judy for her hospitality; she and her lovely two dogs give an extra positive dimension to you stay.
