Lose yourself to a magical woodland

Peace and tranquillity deep in the forest


Follow the forest road as it drops deep into the wooded valley; feel the calm of the forest wrap itself around you, and listen... silence. This is Keldy, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. If ever there was a place to feel that special magic of the forest, it is here in Keldy, a paradise of sunlit glades, tumbling crystal clear brooks and shy woodland creatures.
