Follow the forest road as it drops deep into the wooded valley; feel the calm of the forest wrap itself around you, and listen… silence. This is Keldy, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. If ever there was a place to feel that special magic of the forest, it is here, a paradise of sunlit glades, tumbling crystal clear brooks and shy woodland creatures.

Forest Holidays’ Keldy cabins blend delightfully into their woodland surroundings, some hidden beneath the trees and others opening out onto soft grassy glades. Warm and welcoming, in an idyllic woodland setting, they provide a peaceful haven from the world outside. Children and teenagers will love lounging in your private hot tub and once the little ones are in bed and the teenagers back indoors on their phones, pour a glass of Champagne and enjoy the hot tub to yourselves. And our pet friendly cabins mean you can bring your dog too!
