Just home from a 4 night stay at Keldy.
Despite being told the 59 lodge site was full, you'd never have guessed as we never saw more than 5 or 6 people, ususlly at the Forest Retreat for our daily latte!
The cabin was just as described on the website. We had a 2 bedroom lodge (2 adults, a 5yr old & 3yr old) and there was more than enough room. It was clean and homely and the hot tub was a fabulous addition!
On the welcome / booking email I was advised to take towels as they were not provided in Silver Birch cabins. However, I would also advise you to take the following as, although you can buy anything you've forgotten from the Forest Retreat shop, you might not think to take.
Dishwasher tabs (as only one is provided although you can buy from the shop for 25p each)
Washing Up Liquid
Extra Toilet Rolls
Hand Soap for bathroom(s) (upstairs double bedroom had ensuite shower room)
There's some great walks around the area but lots of places to visit in the area.
Bill The Forest Ranger took the children on a trail around the woods based on the Gruffalo - looking for signs of the mouse, the owl, fox and snake. Lots to learn and lots to see. The children and adults enjoyed it!
Staff are on hand if you need anything, but if not, you are left alone to enjoy your own company.
A mobile fish & chip van, from an award winning shop in Pickering, comes to the site twice a week. It is so popular my husband was gone an hour picking them up as the queue was so long.
The Forest Retreat is small but like the Tardis! It's a coffee shop, a fast food takeaway, grocer & gift shop. There's also a children's table with pictures to colour. Outside there's a wooden play area with picnic tables.
I would definitely recommend this site and look forward to returning here or trying a different site.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent stay at our Keldy forest location. I am delighted that you had a good break with us and that the children enjoyed the Forest Ranger activity based around the Gruffalo; it has proven to be very popular. We look forward to seeing you at Keldy again or one of our other locations around the UK.
