Lakeside, seaside, countryside, hillside...wherever you can picture your perfect cottage, you'll find it with Welcome Cottages!


After a busy exploring places such as York, Harrogate or Hull, relax in your own private hot tub.

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.
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, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    3rd time staying at Mackinder farm but first time in this particular lodge. It's not as big as the Kingfisher (at least so it seems) but it's on a great plot. It's in a great secluded location and James is a fine host. There's a Tesco at nearby Brayton for supplies and The Wheatsheaf pub is great for food. Just a couple of issues with this particular lodge - the hot tub had no bar to close the lid so it required 2 people to close it when finished using it (not ideal in the cold), and the jets were only really working on one side so it wasn't that powerful. It didn't really keep a high temperature either, and I think it's due a replacement in all honesty. The lodge was very comfortable and clean overall, but there were some cobwebs up in the ceiling, and the shower curtain was dirty. The brush in the cupboard was bent in half (It wasn't us!) but the rest was spot on though. There were no notices saying that the recycling bins had been relocated, and we didn't get a map of how to get to the pub or shops (not that we needed one, but have seen them in the Kingfisher lodge in the past), but new visitors could benefit from it. Nearby Selby seemed closed on Wednesday afternoon, but fab fish and chips from Mr.C's chippy. James was on holiday on our visit so we didn't see him until the end of our week, so probably a bit of an unfair review as he wasn't on hand to speak with. This was our 3rd visit, and although we like to visit new lodges for new experiences this place is right up there for quality of stay and we wouldn't think twice about going for a fourth time. It's ideal for walkers and dogs and makes for a very relaxing break. It's so quiet and there's no noise from the neighbouring properties (there's only a handful on site anyway). There was a portable heater in the lodge but this didn't work. However the underfloor heating meant it was very warm on a night so it wasn't needed. Would always recommend to anyone looking for a quiet break. Milk and wine on arrival is a nice touch too! Thanks for having us and hope to return soon.

    Wow..what an amazing holiday. The lodge is so peaceful and relaxing with the added bonus of a great hot tub after a day out walking. Note that the hot tub has its water empted for each new guest :) James the owner was polite and a great help with local knowledge. Dont be put off, James is not intrusive, its just the children liked to talk to him and he is a really nice guy. The farm has 5 beautiful lodges that are spaced out from each other and you couldnt hear any other guest. Dont take bedding, towels or the kitchen sink..the lodges have everything you could want. We were so happy on the holiday we have already booked to go back !

    Loved our stay here. Was worried about it not being private enough when we first arrived as it is positioned next to another cabin but bushes were in place to conceal us. Wine and milk in the fridge on arrival. Very quiet and peaceful. Lovely owner. Loved the hot tub. Would definitely visit again.
