Address: Forest Holidays, Cawthorne, Pickering, Keldy, North Yorkshire, YO18 8HW
Keldy is located in Cawthorne, near Pickering in North Yorkshire. There are a wealth of family friendly days out in the local area including the seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough, catching a steam train through the moors (including Goathland – famous as the home of TV’s Heartbeat, and also Hogsmeade Station from Harry Potter!), or visiting the local theme parks, museums and gardens. Visit York’s exciting Jorvik Viking Centre or Dungeons, give Go Ape a go at Dalby Forest, or head to Scarborough’s Sealife Centre or Castle Howard.
There are 59 woodland forest cabins at Keldy, with a wide range of options including Silver Birch and Golden Oak. All the cabins are cosy and well-appointed, with a log burner in the living room, and each one features its own private hot tub on the decking so you can properly relax as you take in your attractive woodland surroundings.
There’s also a magnificent Golden Oak Treehouse, sleeping up to eight in four bedrooms, which is a standard Golden Oak cabin with an additional fairy tale master bedroom accessed across a rope bridge.
For an idea of prices, a two-bedroom Golden Oak cabin sleeping a family of four is likely to cost around £2025/week during the summer peak. A three bedroom Silver Birch, sleeping up to six, costs around £2420/week at the same time of year. An off-peak week starts at just £800 – and you’ll still be able to make use of the tempting hot tub on your deck whatever the weather!
