Welcome Cottages

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


This eco-friendly lodge is perfect for exploring the cities of York, Hull and Leeds, with their many shops, restaurants and attractions.

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.

    Excellent stay and would definitely book again! Maybe new beds in the twin room are needed as they are a little creaky / possibly more work surface in the kitchen and a pot washer would be idea as it is for 6 people so quite a small kitchen and a lot of pots to be washed up! Other than that, we can't fault it!

    Peaceful setting for a lovely relaxing break. Clean, spacious and well equipped lodges. Perfect for a family to explore more of York. Fantastic hot tub, used every day. Friendly and accommodating and made to feel very welcome by the owner from the outset. Highly recommended and we hope to return.

    Cannot recommend mackinder farms lodges highly enough. We stayed in the pheasant lodge for 7 days over Christmas with out four children and it was magical! The owner had tastefully decorated the lodge for Christmas, the wood and the hot tub gave it an extra special winter Christmassy feel! The lodge is immaculately clean & modern, wine on arrival was well received!! The owner is friendly & helpful, there was plenty of outside space to wear the children out and the hot tub went down very well with mum & dad in the chilly evenings! We will definitely be back again!
