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

    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.

    We had an amazing time at Pheasant Lodge. The cabin was clean, tidy, and had everything we needed for a family of 4, and then some. The hot tub was hot! Definitely recommend and would stay again in the future.

    Brilliant location, spotlessly clean lodge but having stayed in the others, now find Pheasant Lodge to be smaller and being beside the entrance made it feel very public, especially in the front bedroom. The lodge was originally very well equipped but is now becoming a little tired. It lacks a dishwasher and the oven needs upgrading. As does the lighting. We had difficulty reading books or newspapers and even playing board games by electric light. Reading in bed was impossible. We were also disappointed that the hot tub had been replaced with a smaller one. Our main complaint was one beyond anyone's help - the elusive WiFi!! We appear to have become Internet reliant these days.
