We decided to do something different this Christmas and chose to go to Keldy. Having been before in the summer, we were hoping to have a peaceful and relaxing Christmas away from the craziness of the city. On arrival we were greeted with some mulled wine and mince pies, which were very welcomed. On our last visit we stayed in a gold cabin, but the silver one we had this time was just as nice and cozy. The cabin was clean, fully equipped and warm. We had a nice hamper with champagne, chocolates and other goodies waiting for us and also a Christmas tree waiting to be decorated. The children (11 and 7) loved going for a long walk in the morning to find things to decorate our tree with. It was so much fun making our own decorations using some of the natural resources provided plus some that we found on our walk. The rest of our stay was exactly what we had wished for, total peace and tranquility, long walks, family time and relaxing in the hot tub. The forest retreat is well supplied and we really enjoyed the nice hot chocolate when returning from our daily walks. The prices are very reasonable as well. On the morning of departure we found out that our car battery was completely flat. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, giving us their phone to call the AA and letting us wait in our cabin until the problem was sorted. Overall, a great experience and we are thinking of returning again next Christmas!
