With nature reserves nearby, this converted farm building is ideal for those interested in wildlife.

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.

    What a little gem, such a peaceful and quaint setting. Owner James couldn't have been more helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to come back again.

    This was our second successful visit to the Hayloft. It's an excellent place. James excels as a host. We'll likely be there again next year or the following.

    We had a great time at the hayloft and would recommend a stay - a lovely place. This was our 40th wedding anniversary and the accommodation made the week-end the best.

    The Hayloft is a brilliant venue for an extended family gathering; spacious, clean, warm and private. We were a party of six adults, a baby and two dogs and had plenty of room for boots, buggies, dog baskets and the rest of our clobber. The surrounding cottages and lodges were full but we neither saw or heard anything of them. Whilst reasonably well equipped the kitchen wasn't a 'cooks' kitchen but it wouldn't stop me from going again.... I'd just take my own stuff with me. James was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We couldn't have wanted for more and hope to make it an annual trip.

    The accommodation is lovely and was equipped with everything we needed. The heating system certainly works well - we really didn't need to use the log burner, but did so because we really wanted to. The fireplace is stunning! Having en-suites for each of the bedrooms was great. Overall it is a fantastic barn conversion and I would definitely stay again.
