Why stay here ...
Karen and Anthony Scaling would like to welcome you to Keld Knowle Farm. We are a family run dairy and arable farm that has been welcoming visitors for over thirty years. Our farm stands back from the road in open fields with easy access. The CL site is spacious with stone roads and some hard standings. The level field has a southerly aspect so you can enjoy the sun from dawn till dusk with views stretching for miles. Walks from the farm lead along footpaths and bridleways into the National Park and neighbouring villages. There is space to run around, watch the cows being milked or just sit and relax. Families welcome.
Keld Knowle makes a great base for all the local attractions, Pickering 2.5miles, Flamingo Land, North York Moors Railway. York, Whitby, Scarborough are all 40 to 60 mins drive.
A short 5 minute walk takes you into the village of Wrelton where the Buck Inn serves superb home cooked meals. A regular bus service connects to Helmsley, Scarborough, York, Whitby, Pickering. There are short walks around the village and a childrens playground.
Keld Knowle also offers farmhouse Bed and Breakfast and two static holiday homes to hire, making it a great place for family and friends to holiday together.
