Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


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. 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 including hot tub towels, and are 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.

    We all thoroughly enjoyed our week at Mallard Lodge. The site has been carefully thought out to ensure privacy; we thought Mallard was excellent for this. The Lodge is well equipped; everything you could want has been provided including a hairdryer. The details say the laundry is coin-operated which is not the case - it's free. There are lovely walks from the Lodge, particularly along the canal. There is a Premier shop in Hambleton which is about 3 miles away and eating out is mainly at pubs unless you want to go into Selby. The A 63 is closed outside the properties but James will send you details on how to get around this.

    Would definitely recommend. Had a brilliant stay. Had absolutely everything we needed. Lovely location to get away. Nothing bad at all to say about any part of it from start to finish.

    I booked a 3 night stay (fri-mon) for myself and my partner at the Mallard Lodge. We where welcomed by James on site, very politely and very welcoming. James showed us around before leaving us to it explaining whete everything is, how everything worked. The lodge is located in a very peaceful area, it has all of the equipment you require for a great weekend away. The hot tub was extremely clean and nice and hot! There was plenty of room in the lodge, with 3 bed rooms, a huge bathroom and a second toilet. The kitchen was filled with all the utensials you would need including stewing pots to egg cups. The lodges are located with privacy to the hot tub.. which is big enough for 6 people with adjustable lights and jets. The stay was very peaceful and relaxing there is no road noise or disturbing sounds that ruin your peaceful weekend away. We had decided to invite 2 of our friends down to stay with us for one night.. the only down side to this was the lodge only having 1 double bed! But other than that it was great. The lodge is located in a great place with York Designer outlet just a couple miles up the road and york only being a little further - leeds is also only half an hour drive if you wanted to have a good shop around and visit difference places. The local town has plenty of shops, a tesco extra if you didn't want to travel with your shopping, plenty of restaurants and pubs. About a mile away from the lodge is a local farm shop with some great products... I would rate our stay 5 out of 5. The team on site where very welcoming and made you feel at home. The wood smell of the lodge just made it for me.. and for my partner.. definitely the hot tub!!! We will be booking again for early next year.
