Lose yourself in a magical woodland, with peace and tranquillity guaranteed...


nnnnIf ever there was a place to feel that special wintery magic of the forest, it’s at Keldy in the North York Moors. A paradise of sunlit glades and tumbling crystal clear brooks, the cabin site is a dreamy place made for quiet hideaways.

The cabins blend into their woodland surroundings seamlessly, some hidden beneath the trees and others opening out onto soft grassy glades. It’s an idyllic woodland setting that provides a peaceful haven away from the world outside.

Visit the Forest Retreat for all your day-planning needs; you’ll find a snack and coffee bar, a laundry room and a children’s play area. You can also meet Forest Rangers, who will be able to help you book activities and hire bikes.

zzzzzThere’s a few accommodation options for mates, couples and families to choose from, but whatever you decide on, know that luxe interiors and wow views are a given.

There’s the Golden Oak Cabin – the most well appointed of the bunch. We love the living area, complete with a log burning stove and outdoor hot tub. Fluffy robes included.

 Fancy sleeping high above the treetops? If so, check out the Golden Oak Luxury Treehouse. Cross the wooden bridge from the main Golden Oak cabin into an exclusive, en-suite room for two. The Golden Oak Treehouse benefits from all the luxuries of the main cabin, and sleeps up to eight people.

 With an outdoor hot tub, a comfortable, en-suite master bedroom, and quality fittings, the Silver Birch Cabin is a great choice for couples. If bubbles aren’t your thing, the great value Copper Beech Cabins boast the same style and comfort of our other cabins, along with a host of  modern extras, including outdoor decking and a flat screen TV.

The market town of Pickering is on your doorstep – well worth a trip for a lazy afternoon’s mooching around. You can reach York, too, if you fancy it. It’s just under an hour away – great for shoppers and romantic strolls.
