About Judy Ruston Thorganby Farm Cottages & B&B, Thorganby, York, UK

I live in North Yorkshire near to York ,on a beautiful small holding in Thorganby where

I run a successful holiday cottage and B&B business.I used to work at the local art college but now I busy rearing sheep and gardening .The family inherited this lovely

house in 2015 and we would like to share it with others and let people know how lovely Luarca and its surrounding area is.It is old fashioned and feels similar to a cornish village from the past.They even have the own cider which is a speciality of the area.

Gorgeous Luarca

  • 5 of 5

Great small town, charming home, clean and great for a family of 4. The owner was helpful. Hill parking was a little challenge but we succeeded. There was so much character that our week stay was perfect. So many great places to walk, gorgeous beaches, and great hike in Valla de Lago, Parque Natural Somiedo. Thanks, Judy!
