This was our first visit to Keld Head Farm, we stayed over the Easter week with our family in the largest cottage, Pasture View. The cottage was more than big enough for six adults and a toddler, it was spotlessly clean, warm and very well equipped. The bedrooms are a generous size as is the main bathroom and the ensuite. The cottage has its own private garden area with table, chairs and parasol which we made use of in the lovely spring sunshine. There is also a larger communal garden space and children's play area with plenty of outdoor toys provided for the little ones. Penny and Julian made us feel very welcome and I'm sure we will be staying with them again in the future.
Fantastic place to stay!

We spent 4 nights over the New Year in 7 of the cottages (Byre, Pigeon Cote, Barn, Granary, Mill, Smithy, Wheelhouse). It was a perfect location and set up for our large party of 29! Julian is a perfect host and made sure we were suitably comfortable as soon as we arrived. The welcome prosecco and mince pies were a pleasant surprise. All the rooms were clean and tidy and had all the amenities that we needed. We will definitely stay again and will recommend to our friends and family. We are glad we came across Keld Head Farm! What a fantastic place!

We have stayed at the Cottages on several occasions - sometimes with the extended family and sometimes just the two of us. It's always our first choice - comfortable, roomy and welcoming. The grounds are lovely for children and adults alike and the situation is ideal for exploring the North York Moors and Pickering itself. We have stayed in several of the cottages and have never been disappointed.
Fantastic Half Term Break

Had a great November half term stay in the Bryre (2 bed, single storey, perfect for our family with 3 and 6 year olds). Great accommodation (clean and cozy), really good garden (with toys and play area for the kids), and nice little touches like eco / fair trade products in the house and DVDs/ books available to borrow. The resident birds were lovely too! Fantastic cake and welcome pack on arrival even though we booked at very short notice (day before). Lots to do in the area too - Dalby Forest (Penny and Julian lent us a free parking voucher for this), Robin Hoods Bay, Scarborough, York etc. All in all, one of the nicest and best value for money breaks we’ve had in a long time - thank you!
Yorkshire's Best!

My husband Colin and I have just returned from another wonderful week at Keld Head hosted by Penny and Julian at their fabulous cosy cottages. We were in Wheelhouse this time as our favourite was already booked. We weren't worried though as we knew the lovely hospitality with home baking and fresh milk would be waiting. Sumptuous cosy beds, a 4-poster this time, and all home comforts you need. We were in Pickering for their annual steam gala which didn't disappoint. The weather was typically up and down but with such a fabulous base, it didn't matter. We are already looking forward to our next holiday there. As always, thank you Penny and Julian.
Fantastic Stay

We stayed in the wheelhouse cottage which was really lovely and family friendly, lots of outdoor space and toys for our 3 year old to play with. Toys included a massive sandpit, maze, swing set, little tykes cars, playhouse etc. Location was fantastic, only a few mins walk into Pickering which had lots of local amenities. The courtyard was just stunning, we sat outside on sunny evenings to enjoy dinner and wine while our son pottered around in the play area. We had an enjoyable stay and won't hesitate to return if ever in the area.
