For those looking for an active holiday, this lodge is the perfect choice, with fishing, golf, cycling and walking all nearby.

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. NB: Properties W42941 and W42942 have an interconnecting door and can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    Good base for trips to York and Hull. Relax aftera long day in private Hot Tub. House is a constant temperature which can be too warm at times.
