|WELCOME TO LUND FARM....
Convenient for historic YORK and right in the middle of England's largest county, Lund Farm is ideal for either your holiday or business visit. We have 200 peaceful acres, a choice of two beautifully renovated farmyard cottages (sleeping 6 and 2), and we're on hand with plenty of informed advice about how to make the most of your stay.
Chris and Helen Middleton, Becky and Elizabeth, Labradors Oscar and Sam, Brodie the Minature Shetland, twelve hens, three cats and the sheep!
We offer a safe patio, lawn and paddock for families with children, a sunny patio (plus wheelchair access) with the smaller cottage, and bicycles to ride around the farm or beyond.
For the business visitor there's a friendly welcome, peace and quiet, internet access if you need it, and don't worry, stroking the cats is strictly optional. Both cottages are 3-Star rated by the English Tourist Board. Sorry no pets.
Lund Farm is conveniently placed for the historic city of York, with its beautiful Norman Minster and city walls, archaelogical 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 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. There are nature reserves for bird-lovers at Blacktoft sands and Fairburn Ings, and Stately homes at 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, ancient castles and ruined abbeys, 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.
