Property Description

Peacefully located amidst arable farmland lies Mackinder Farms; a collection of cottages and contrasting eco-friendly lodges. The holiday cottages (W42586, W42941, W42942), lovingly converted from 18th-century farm buildings, have been carefully renovated retaining many original features including beams and roof trusses and exposed brick and stone work, whilst the superb Nordic pine log cabins (W43008, W43009, W43170 and W43171) offer eco friendly holiday accommodation with grass roofs and geo-thermal underfloor heating. Each cottage has been tastefully furnished to a very good standard and offer superb facilities. Each lodge enjoys a private hot tub perfect for relaxing and soaking up the tranquillity of the surroundings. There are separate garden areas and great care has been taken to ensure guests enjoy privacy.
Selby Canal is nearby and fishing is available, whilst Selby Golf Club is just a short walk and visitors receive a warm welcome on the course and in the clubhouse. Set between Brayton and Gateforth, the area is ideal for walkers and cyclists with the Selby Horseshoe and Selby and York Cycle path running close by. An abundance of wildflowers, birds and butterflies can be enjoyed in the Nature Reserves at Barlow Common, Skipwith and Derwent Valley. RSPB experts run guided walks around Fairburn Ings, 10 miles, and events including family fun days are organised throughout the year.
Medieval York is just 17 miles away, with easy access to the city from the designer outlet park and ride, 15 miles. Hull with its futuristic aquarium, Leeds and the Royal Armouries and the elegant spa town of Harrogate are all within an hour’s drive. The coastal resorts of Filey, Scarborough and Whitby are easily accessible. Shop 1.25 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

  1. Lovely cottage in a really nice area. We walked to the nearby pub (dog friendly) along the bridleway. Cottage very well equipped and we all had a great weekend. James was very welcoming and we definitely intend to return. Oct 2012.
  2. A really lovely barn conversion with an enclosed garden which was great for our puppy. Would definitely recommend this property and will go there again. Sept 2012.
  3. McKinder Farm is a great place to stay. We have been twice and are made to feel very welcome by the owners. Great location. Best of both worlds - busy cities and towns nearby but away from it all too. Will definitely go back. So many places to visit, have to go again and again to fit them all in. July 2012.
  4. Lovely cottage, perfect for a family get together. May 2012.
  5. The cottage is finished to a very high spec, the welcome is warm and friendly - dont want to reccommend this place too highly or else it will always be booked up if and when i want to go back. May 2012.
