    PHEASANT LODGE sleeping up to 6 guests

    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.

    "Amazing lodge- shown how things work on arrival then left to relax. Had an amazing time with the girls in the hot tub would definitely recommend"
    PAULINE – 31 Aug 2018
    "This lodge is in a good location if you need peace and quiet. The walk along the canal to Burn or Selby is lovely. The hot tub is an added bonus ."
    Jill – 16 Apr 2018
    "Our stay at Pheasant Lodge was perfect, and will be our base when come and visit family in that area again. Peaceful location, lovely clean accommodation and James was very helpful too. You do need a car to stay here but local shops, supermarket and restaurant less than 10 mins drive away. Hot Tub rounded off the lodge perfectly.Only one very little picky comment was the shower was a little 'snug' with shower curtain hugging you a lot but very minor thing."

    "Brilliantly placed little log cabin in perfect solitude. Very relaxing and quite. Only down side was the oven bulb wasn’t working, the oven was very slow and the oven top quickly got dirty with being white. But lovely owners and would definetly go again."

    "Lovely warm lodges, well looked after, very private, very quiet spot. I believe there is a pub less than a mile away but we never got there. We did go out for a meal in Beverley (Sunshine Thai - really really good) the taxis come right to the lodges, dead easy.Highly recommended 👍"

    "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)."
    "Lovely and secluded. Enjoyed a fabulous relaxing family break. Very comfortable accommodation. Loved the hot tub."
    "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!"
    "We had a great time at Pheasant Lodge. The owner was very obliging and even returned to the site to help us with the TV after his working hours were done. We had fun in the hot tub, a barbeque (gas) on the veranda which we hired from the owner and walked a few miles in the sunshine into Selby along the canal for a pint in Wetherspoons. Lovely weather and a fantastic weekend- thank you.As we planned to not shop or eat out we felt that if anything, the fridge was a little small and there was only a freezer compartment- not a freezer. This was manageable but more space would have been very handy especially as the weather was so good.The lodge was extremely well equipped and lovely and clean.We will return one day. Thank you"
    "Cannot fault the place we booked to go back again!"

    "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."
    "Lovely well equipped lodge which was comfortable & homely. The hot tub was a big bonus! Lovely walk to the local pub we're the people we're friendly & great walks along the canal. Free bottle of milk & bottle of wine in the fridge on arrival was a thoughtful touch. Will definitely go back"
    "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."
    "Lovely, peaceful location but within easy driving distance of several attractions. James, the owner is very friendly and helpful"
    "A beautiful lodge, a home from home with all the comforts of home, packed with the essentials.... clean, warm and in a tranquil setting. Friendly and helpful owner! Hot tub was lush! Will be going back!!!"
    "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."

    "Visited twice and booked for twice next year love it."
    "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."
    "Fantastic location, escape to the country with no mobiles!!!! Lodges are beautiful. Hot tubs clean and fun! Thoroughly enjoyed our ladies weekend!"
    "Fantastic! Will return"
    "We had fabulous .weekend. Great location, very relaxing .. Will be going again"
    "Great log cabin, we stayed in a few like this but this was def the nicest not just because of the cabin itself, but the patio and garden area was greatWe went with our 6yr old daughter and dogs, had a great time and lots of great days outWill def be returning"
    "Short break with family. Lovely hot tub a great bonus and lodge very warm . All home comforts. Would definetly recommend. Thanks james."

    "Beautiful lodge and nice welcome pack on arrival. The owner had decorated it ready for Christmas which was a lovely touch and also loaned us a high chair and travel cot free of charge. Good laundry facilities which we used. Hot tub was very relaxing to use once baby had gone to bed. We wanted a very relaxed and chilled week with plenty of dog walks which the accommodation is perfect for.Only fault is kitchen is a bit small if there was 6 in the party which the lodge accomdates."
    "Probably one of the nicest places I've stayed in, a very warm welcome from the owner, clean, warm and idilic location."
    "Great place to relax"
    "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!"
    "Extremely clean and very well equipped. Very cosy and warm. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Hot tub was a great addition. Would definitely recommend."
    "Fantastic stay very relaxing & in a great location. Some lovely walks down canal to the pub & then into the hot tub to unwind when back.....highly recommended."
    "Arrived at 4 to a spotlessly co"
    "The lodge was in a private setting and great for a relaxing break. The addition of a hot tub made it a luxury and the location was great - only 30 minutes away from York. There was plenty of space and the dog was more than welcome on the site."
    "Good place for walks good views lovely place"
    "Loved the lodge, lovely area. Great hot tub. Would definitely go back again. James was very accommodating, would help with anything. Gave us good information/directions."
    "Great place, we will be booking up again in the near future"
    "Very good"
    "Fantastic for a relaxing weekend with the family."
    "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. "
    "Made very welcome by owner,bottle of wine and mince pies on arrival, hot tub lovely,good pub,the Wheatsheaf ,only 20 mins walk away, will take dogs. Could not fault our stay in any way."
    "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! "
    "The nicest property we've ever stayed in, very well equipped, warm and clean. Will definitely be booking here again."

    "Just perfect for our family girly weekend, hot tub just great for relaxing after shopping!"
    "Excellent. "
    "A great lodge/cabin, very quiet and peaceful and the hot tub definitely a bonus! No internet access in the cabin, but we found this a blessed relief to be honest!A warm welcome, place was spotless and well looked after. James is as helpful as you need him to be, but to be honest after the welcome he leaves you alone to get on with enjoying yourselves and is on hand if needed.Looking to book again for Easter 2015!"
    "Loved this cottage. The hot tub was brilliant."
    "Love it, one problem, nothing to do with the log cabin or the owner he was great and very helpful the log cabin super, over the moon with the place but in the description its said very warm welcome if you go to the Selby golf club this club is members only not allowed in clubhouse or course"

    "Pheasant lodge is a beautiful property. The decor is very modern and everything was spotlessly clean. The owner was very accommodating even leaving a bottle of wine and a pint of milk for our arrival. Hot tub was an added bonus. I would definitely recommend this property. Oct 2012."

    "3 generations of our family, and dogs, really enjoyed our break in pheasant lodge. Everything was laid on for our arrival, so no need to rush out and get things, cleanliness was excellent every room was pristine. Owner James was very welcoming and friendly. Lovely surroundings, and hot tub a must. Car needed to get around, or just take the time to chill out, will be back. July 2012. "

    "We enjoyed our stay at Pheasant Lodge. It was very clean and well appointed, with lovely comfortable beds. The highlight of the stay was the use of the lovely big hot-tub on the verandah, which our family used every day, which made up for the fact that the weather was fairly poor at the time of visit. Jonathan, the owner was very friendly and helpful. June 2012. "
