With nature reserves nearby, this converted farm building is ideal for those interested in wildlife.

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. Each cottage has been tastefully furnished to a good standard and offer excellent facilities. There are private gardens and care has been taken to ensure guests enjoy their privacy.

The superb Nordic pine log cabins (W43008, W43009, W43170, W43171 and W44304) offer eco friendly holiday accommodation with grass roofs and renewable, underfloor heating. 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.

    The Mackinder Farms Accommodation is a Yorkshire gem. The Hayloft is amazing, stunning and has everything you need to relax and enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside. My husband, I and our excitable dog Ollie had a very warm welcome from James and nothing was too much trouble, lots of suggestions of places to see and the best walks. We had a peak at the other properties on offer and have already booked our next visit. We felt so relaxed that we really didn't want to leave. It's good to find a dog friendly place that's also stylish for us humans. There's plenty of walks if you feel energetic or a short drive takes you into selby for shops etc. Sitting out on the patio, in the sun, looking out across the farm, listening to the birds, what more could you want! Loved it all thank you James 👍

    Beautiful barn conversion. Spotlessly clean, well-appointed and comfortable. Peaceful, secluded location and comfortable memory foam mattresses made for excellent night's sleep. Limited views from the property but perfect base for meeting up with family and friends. York and Selby also within easy reach and RSPB Fairburn Ings for birdwatchers is worth a visit. Friendly and helpful owner. Pricey but beautiful.

    We had a lovely time at The Hayloft. Very spacious property. Comfortably furnished. Very quiet. Situated close enough to Selby to obtain provisions for a self catering holiday. Would have given 10 stars except that we found the freezer too small (only a little area in top of fridge) although there were two fridges (one small with the freezer and one larger one) which was useful and the rear garden isn't secure. Front garden is secure with a hedge and wire to keep dogs and children contained. But if the rear garden could be fenced the same it would be perfect. We felt awful with the dogs playing in the front garden and had to keep trying to prevent them from running amongst the lovely plants :-(. Would be more than happy to return to The Hayloft and found James to be more than helpful for any questions and the bottle of wine, milk/tea/coffee etc was a welcome arrival after a long car journey - thank you :-)

    Had a lovely week and managed to stay an extra 3 nights as we were enjoying it so much as luckily for us the property was not booked the next week. The Hayloft was very well presented, clean, spacious and having the 3 en-suites was a godsend. The 3 bedrooms were a good size and beds comfortable. The lounge was huge and airy due to the high ceilings. The welcome pack was a nice touch and the information folder was very helpful with a list of pubs/restaurants. James (the owner) was very friendly and helpful. If you have a dog be careful as the back garden is not secure, as the hedges are not fully matured yet (our dog escaped once) but the front garden is secure and there are chairs and a table if you wish to sit outside. The Wheatsheaf Inn (in Burn) is a lovely dog friendly pub and does great food. A very nice property and would definitely stay there again.

    The aim of our break was to sit back, relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. And that is exactly what we got. James was very accommodating and helpful. He takes pride in his accommodation and farm which shines through in his hospitality. He was good at given local knowledge and advice. We would have no hesitation in staying again.
