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!

Sandy Palms

When you think of Scarborough, palm trees may not be your first thought, but think again! The lush palm outside will be your first sight of your holiday destination as you drive or walk down the attractive terrace of Victorian houses.

Sandy Palms Apartment is in the perfect location for a seaside holiday. Within a couple of minutes’ walk you can be buying artisan bread in the 160 year old Market Hall, enjoying a coffee in one of the many independent cafes (which one will be your favourite I wonder?) or enjoying locally caught fish from a classic fish and chip shop. If you’re feeling fit (or needing to work off those chips) then within another couple of minutes you can be on the beach at South Bay via 142 steps but don’t worry there’s a more leisurely route (that’s pushchair friendly). In fact there’s many routes to South Bay beach taking between 4-10 minutes to walk and taking in some amazing street art or lots of shops and eateries. North Bay is also close – just 5 minutes’ walk.

The first floor two bedroom apartment sleeps 4-6 plus a cot (provided). It’s suitable for couples but also having children ourselves we’ve designed it to be exceptionally family friendly. Take a look at our ‘Info For Families’ page on our website to see what we mean.

On-street parking is available (we’ll send you a parking permit if you’re driving) and it’s only a 15 minute walk from Scarborough railway station or a short taxi ride.

I hope our website gives you a good insight into Sandy Palms and everything we and Scarborough can offer you for your holiday but do please feel free to call on 07922 635493 or email us with any queries you may have.

We look forward to welcoming you.
