This was a last minute booking and it couldn't have been better. The location was perfect for exploring York and the surrounding countryside. Judy was a fountain of knowledge and extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend and would use again.
Though slightly out of the way it is still close enough to shopping outlets for day to day supplies. Excellently positioned to visit York, Whitby and Ripon.
This is a beautiful cottage in perfect, tranquil surroundings. Cottage has all mod cons, plus its own little garden to the front, leading onto owners garden surrounded by fields. Perfect for us as we wanted total relaxation. Thank you for an amazing week and we hope to be back at some point.
My mother, two children and I have just returned from a delightful break at Curlew Cottage. On arrival we found the cottage to be spotlessly clean and tidy and there was a cake and coffee and tea for us to have, which we thought was a lovely welcome to the cottage. We found that there was everything you could possibly need there and it was set in a beautiful, peaceful place. Judy was a lovely person who was always happy to give advice of places which we could visit on our stay. It is in an ideal location and there is so much to see and do. We had a great time on the "bloody tour of York", the York maze was a good day out for the kids and the dungeons are worth a visit too. My children loved playing with Judy's dogs in the beautiful communal garden outside and have asked to go back for a holiday there again. We would recommend the cottage to anyone and hope to return again in future.
This is the perfect location for exploring York, the Wolds, the Yorshire Moors and innumerable other wonderful places. The cottage is spacious and attractively furnished. Everything you could possibly need is provided for. Judy, the owner, is the best hostess you can think of: the first proof of that was the delicious homemade cake that welcomed us. Judy knows everything about any place you might want to visit and she happily shared her knowledge with us. Being a guitar freak I am particularly grateful to Judy, for she managed to persuade her son to lend me his guitar for the duration of our stay. This is to show that she goes out of her way to make her guests happy. We spent an unforgettable week at Curlew Cottage and we will certainly recommend it to all our friends. - and we will be back as soon as possible!
My wife and I just returned from two very relaxing and enjoyable weeks at Curlew Cottage, Thornganby, Yorkshire! The cottage was very well equipped with appliances but also kitchen utensils and dishes, everything worked very well.(which isn't always the case!).
Judy, the owner, was very welcoming and always ready with a suggestion of something else to see or visit, or to help with whatever we needed. The cottage was very clean, and the bed comfortable. Fresh milk, tea and a delicious walnut cake awaited us on our arrival!
We thoroughly enjoyed the local area as well as visiting the moors and dales of Yorkshire. York itself was very interesting and we did not begin to see everything that is available! We enjoyed visiting Selby, Harrogate, Whitby, Scarborough and Richmond which were all within easy driving time.
The Mason Arms in York has wonderful roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, while "Filmore and Union" and "Georgina's Café" in York provided tea and goodies repeatedly!
I would highly recommend the Thorganby Farm Cottages to anyone who wants a relaxing get-away within driving distance to activities for the whole family! We hope to go back!
