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


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. 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, W44304 and UKC2565) 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 where 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.
Properties W42941 and W42942 have an interconnecting door and can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests. The properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 47 guests.

    My family (4 adults and a dog) have just returned from a week at Pheasant Lodge and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing break. The lodge itself is lovely. It is well kept, clean and very spacious. The hot tub is a nice feature which is a welcome source of relaxation for weary bones after a walk along the canal. The site owner has obviously taken great care when considering the placement of the lodges and shrubbery to ensure the accommodation is as private as possible and not overlooked by neighbouring lodges. The lodge only has one TV (with Freeview & DVD player) and internet and mobile signal can be very intermittent so probably is not the ideal location for those reliant on modern technology, but for us it was an opportunity to escape. Having stayed in several other lodges throughout the north of England I can definitely recommend this one and believe it is excellent value for money. James (the Site Owner) was really friendly and helpful (as were the other staff on site).

    What can I say, this is the best cabin I have ever stayed in. Easy to get to. The owner James met us there, he is so nice! Tells you everything you need to know. He even had wine and milk for us ready in the fridge. The cabin itself smells amazing so clean, everything you need there, I was worried about our dog getting out but the decking has fencing round. The hot tub is spotless!! My son wouldn't get out of it! The beds are amazing all of them have memory foam mattresses!! James even had a travel cot and high chair to hand when I asked. I'm desperate to go back!

    Lovely place to stay! Clean, quiet, lovely surrounding... what more could you want on a relaxing break! Hot tub well maintained and went down a treat with the kids. There is not much in the way of amenities but we were more than happy with that. Great family holiday and we will definitely be returning.

    Wow what a lovely log cabin very very clean great location for walks with the dogs and only 100 yards away for the canal. Great friendly staff on hand if you need anything this lodge I feel was the best one on site. We only had two small issues and that's because it's our preference. The first was the oven it took 3 hours to cook a jacket potato so don't plan on putting anything in the oven and the second was the pillows very hard and lumpy I had to go into Selby to buy pillows that were softer. Other than that everything was great and we will be back a lovely peaceful place.
