Forest Holidays Keldy

Forest Holidays 2019Follow 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!

Distance from York: 36.9 miles

Humble Bee Farm – a working farm ideally located for your glamping getaway in the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds.
Our family-run farm includes three comfortable holiday cottages – two with outdoor hot tubs – Big Chief Wigwams®, Bell Tents, Nomadic Yurts, electric tourer and non-electric tent pitches.

“My boy who was 3 1/2 loved it. You can go collect eggs in the morning for your breakfast. Little play area, few animals.”

JB, Feb 18

“Its amazing and we will be going each year, the wooden wigwams are warmer than the bell tents.  The shower blocks, toilets and kitchen area is lovely and clean and the staff are amazing.  You can collect the eggs each morning and it’s worth getting the wood delivered for the fire pit but take your own charcoal and food, it’s cheaper. They have a fridge with small freezer, kettle and toaster and a little prep area in each wigwams too which is great.”
