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.

Judy Ruston Thorganby Farm Cottages & B&B, Thorganby, York, UK purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Judy Ruston Thorganby Farm Cottages & B&B, Thorganby, York, UK chose Valdes

La Pena ,close to the centre it is well placed for enjoying Luarca and the surrounding beaches .It is bright and comfortable.It is great because it has a good sized downstairs bathroom & Shower plus a great enclosed shower room ensuite to the master bedroom on the top floor.The house was renovated 6 years ago by a family member and it has a lovely feel to it.It is lovely to pop out for a delicious coffee ( very Cheap) or visit the Chino shops for which Luarca is famous.The market on Wednesday is a must when you can buy the local veg,cheese and cure meats.There are 2 beaches which you can walk or jog to ,which have little bars so you can sit and enjoy the views.The "Moyen", harbour is great for people watching it is full of bright coloured fishing boats with lots of cafes and restaurants along the side.There is also a fish market there everyday so you can enjoy fabulous fresh fish here.

What makes this cottage unique

La Pena is easy to find because it is next to the bright yellow house owned by Manuel our neighbour so you can't miss it .It has character but has all mod cons ,

and is in the centre so you can stroll out to the restaurants and bars at night.It is also on the route for the ancient pilgrim walk "Santiago de Compostela".It is within walking distance to the beaches ,harbour and supermarkets.A great place for touring from for the coast,mountains and towns.

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!
