Places to visit during your stay at Lund Farm
If you want a really peaceful holiday
you don't need you leave Lund Farm at all. You could just chill on your private patio with a glass of wine and your
favourite holiday read. You could borrow our bicycles and cycle down the farm to several relaxing picnic
sites by the Selby canal.
Lund Farm Cottage guests have acess to specially discounted rates at
Angel Riding Centre (just half a mile) (for a small donation to charity you can include the
Lund Farm circuit as part of your ride), Selby Golf Club, just a par five away (not my original line, James's from Mackinder farms
next door, thank you James !), and, just 2 miles away, taster flights at Burn Gliding Club.
