Lund Farm Cottages, Gateforth, Selby, North Yorkshire (Sleeps 1-6)


Lund Farm is a peaceful haven for either your holiday or business visit. Set on 200 peaceful acres, there is a choice of two beautifully renovated farmyard cottages (sleeping 6 and 2), and the owners are personally on hand to give you plenty of informed advice to help you to make the most of your stay.

You will find a safe patio, lawn and paddock with sandpit, slide and garden games for families with children, a sunny patio with the smaller cottage, and bicycles for all ages to ride around the farm if you want to stretch your legs.

For the business visitor there's a friendly welcome, peace and quiet, and internet access, and don't worry, stroking the cats is strictly optional!

Lund Farm Cottage is the three-bedroomed, self-contained 18th Century wing of the farmhouse. The centrepiece is the original black kitchen range set in a feature brick wall in the pine beamed lounge area. It’s lovely for fires on winter evenings. Upstairs is a large double room with en suite bathroom, and the original two-level farmhouse bathroom provides the en suite bath and shower room for a further suite of two twin rooms.

Outside there is a sizeable, enclosed private patio and lawn to the rear with a sandpit, slide, garden games. It is fully equipped for 6 people, including children of any age. 

Shepherd's Rest was created by the sympathetic renovation of a small farm building close to the farmhouse. This cottage is ideal for that cosy retreat for two, for the business traveller preferring independence and for those who cannot get about so well. It has an accessibility rating and is wheelchair friendly. The pine-beamed kitchen and living area boast an old-style Belfast sink & a black cast-iron wood-burning stove. The beds in the spacious twin room link to form a “super-king-size” double.

Shepherd's Rest has a quiet and sunny south facing patio, with access to the farm paddock and adjoining orchard.
