North Yorkshire is perfect for a walking holiday. Begin with a gentle walk from your cabin door at Keldy or explore miles of moorland; walk along dramatic coastal paths or climb to waterfalls, hilltops and fabulous views.
From family cycling in the forest at Keldy to high-thrills mountain biking in Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire has something for everyone. For longer runs, the National Cycle Network (Sustrans) Route 1 takes in the coastline and Route 165 cuts across the Esk Valley to Whitby.
Pickering is the closest town to Keldy and along with Ryedale's other towns of Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside, Malton and Norton, it has independent shops, art galleries, excellent restaurants, and a host of festivals and special events. Pickering is also at the end of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway line. Catch the steam train to Goathland, where you can step off at Hogsmeade Station from Harry Potter and walk through Aidensfield from TV’s Heartbeat. For the ultimate city trip, head to York, which manages to combine olde worlde charm with a cosmopolitan air.
