I'm going to start with some positives the cabin was nice and staff all very friendly. I've been using forest holidays now for 4 years but normally use the Sherwood pines site but we thought we would have a change and I'll admit I really should have looked into the keldy site a bit more before booking. Right the negatives... More

This place is just outside of Pickering, North Yorks. Owned by the Forestry Commission. The roads leading unto the site are single track and unlit, so be prepared if driving there in the dark as its remote.... Once your there it really is in the forest. Booking in, is easy and in the centre of the site, this is also... More

Brilliant cabins, well equipped with a lovely log burner. Hot tub was amazing. Staff really friendly. Room service was an unexpected bonus as were the roe deer wandering around outside our cabin on our anniversary morning 😃. Will definitely be returning.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your recent holiday with us. We ask our guests to keep noise levels to a minimum after 10pm in consideration of other guests. It is surprising how far noise travels in a quiet forest and it is easy for volume levels to gradually increase, particularly... More

Wonderful cabins in an excellent setting. Well equipped accommodation. Hot tub. Well thought about. The sort of chill out everyone needs without the hustle and bustle of airports and airplanes. This is a must do for anybody. We will return!

Stayed here last week and we all had a great time, the site is lovely with open meadows and some cabins surrounded by trees or backs onto the forest, the postcode we received by email led us up some mountain about 20 minutes away which didn't bother us as we saw great views and we managed to locate the Keldy...
