We stayed for 3 nights, our check in was no problem & staff based in forest retreat very helpful and friendly. Walking into cabin the floor was covered in dust (although a girl did come and clean it later). The guy who came to show us how to use hot tub etc was very condescending, talking to us like we...

We've stayed at Keldy over a dozen times over the last decade or so (though I was coming here as a kid when there were only 3 cabin sites many years ago!) and have always had a great time. This stay was for our annual visit to the beer festival at the New Inn in Cropton. We had a Copper... More

I booked a weekend stay at Keldy for my boyfriends 40th birthday and we were not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by helpful and friendly staff, our cabin was clean, spacious and the perfect location and the treats I'd ordered were already in the cabin. A member of staff came to the cabin and explained how everything worked within... More

Stayed here on the Friday - Monday weekend break in March 2015. Stayed in Cabin 19 which i think was one of the best (i pre-booked online for an extra £25) as it had the patio/hot tub area looking out straight on to a small field in the middle of the site instead of other cabins. The Golden Oak cabin... More

Was booked to spend an extended weekend at Keldy with my wife. The main reason was to meet a number of Great Dane owners so that our dogs and us could have a fun time. As we live in the north east corner of Scotand, we were due to set off about 3am, as the drive was going to be... More

Just returned from a wonderful long weekend in keldy forest! With us having our 1 year old daughter in tow, it was perfect to be out in the quiet of the forest but with amenities so close by at the forest retreat. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the cabin clean, comfortable and well equipped, the surroundings beautiful, couldn't... More

We were just having a lovely evening in the hot tub chatting (no music just talking) and we were very rudely spoken to by security and told to get inside! He stood and watched the women get out of the hot tub, just spoilt our stay sadly - very very rude security 😞 there are no rules saying you must... More

This is our second visit to Keldy and it was just as impressive. Firstly, this is not Center Parcs. If you're expecting lots of shops, cafes and crowded swimming pools, then you'll be disappointed. If you're expecting high quality lodges in a friendly, tranquil setting, then you're in for a treat. The Keldy site is a good few miles from... More
