Lund Farm Cottages
Convenient for historic YORK and bustling LEEDS and right in the middle of Yorkshire, Lund Farm is a friendly haven for your holiday, business or family visit. We have 200 peaceful acres, a choice of two beautifully renovated farmyard cottages (sleeping 6 & cot and 2 & cot), and we are personally on hand with plenty of advice to help you to make the most of your stay.
We offer a safe patio, lawn and paddock with sandpit, slide and garden games for families, a sunny patio with the smaller cottage, and free use of bicycles for all ages
For the business visitor there's a friendly welcome, peace and quiet, and internet access, and don't worry, stroking the animals is optional.
Lund Farm Cottage
The horsemen's accommodation before the days of tractors, LUND FARM COTTAGE is the three-bedroom self-contained wing of our 18th century farmhouse.
The centrepiece is the original black cast iron kitchen range set in a mellow feature brick wall in the pine-beamed lounge area. It's lovely for fires on winter evenings (we provide coal, logs and toasting forks) but we also offer modern heating and cooking facilities, as we know you can take the 18th century experience too far.
Upstairs is a very large double room with en-suite bathroom, and the original farmhouse bathroom provides a large en-suite bath and shower room for a further suite of two twin rooms.
Lund Farm Cottage faces the farmyard, and has a sizeable, enclosed private patio and lawn to the rear with a sandpit, slide and garden games. It is fully equipped for 6, including children of any age. We supply a high chair and stair gate if required
Lund Farm Cottage comes complete with microwave, barbecue and washing machine, and all our prices are fully inclusive of electricity, linen, towels, coal, logs and fresh eggs which you can send the children to collect from the hens. No coin-in-the-slot meters here!
Created by sympathetic renovation of a small farm building close to the farmhouse, SHEPHERD'S REST 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, pine-furnished kitchen and living area boasts an old-style Belfast Sink, a black cast-iron wood-burning stove for winter evenings, and views through the farmyard and pasture to the woods beyond. 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.
Just like Lund Farm Cottage, there's lots of tourist information for you, and we are close by in the main farmhouse for local knowledge when you need it.
Lund Farm is conveniently placed for the historic city of YORK, with its beautiful Norman Minster and city walls, archaeological evidence of its Viking origins, museums (including the National Railway Museum), river trips, narrow streets and ghost walks. Even the tea-shops in York are world-famous!
SELBY, our local town, also has a wonderful Norman Abbey with links to the Washington family, a large traditional Monday street market, and excellent rail links all over the country (London two and a half hours). There are nature reserves for bird-lovers not far away at Blacktoft sands and Fairburn Ings, and Stately homes at Harewood, Lotherton Hall, Temple Newsam and Brodsworth House.
From the very centre of Yorkshire the choice of day-drives is endless. Dozens of beautiful stately homes (Castle Howard), ancient castles and ruined abbeys (Fountains), a huge variety of scenery from rich lowlands to the Yorkshire Dales of Heriot and the lonely North York Moors.
There are seaside resorts from Captain Cook's Whitby to Scarborough and Bridlington, children's animal farms, the Eureka children's museum and the steam railways of Railway Children and Heartbeat fame. Don't forget the spa town of Harrogate and the thriving modern city of Leeds.
But you don't have to drive far. You can simply stay on the farm to relax, help us with the sheep perhaps, walk the canal bank adjoining the farm, or we can direct you to local pubs, tea-shops or woodland walks.
