We spent four nights at The Manse for Christmas and it was a wonderful experience for all. The cottage was extremely well equiped with everything we needed and was spacious yet cosy - perfect for a winter get away! The surrounding area for walking was fab so we'll certainly be back again. Thank you Helen for booking us in.
We’ve stayed here 4 times and each time it gets better. They have updated and upgraded the shower and a lot of the furniture. The photos on line do not do the place justice. The cleanliness, the atmosphere and the attention to detail are exceptional. This place is clearly loved by the owners. There are fantastic walks from the door. In my opinion the best walks anywhere! The local pubs are great and the legendary Yorkshire hospitality is all around. Keld have even opened their own community tea room where you can help yourself to drinks and cakes then pay using an honesty box. The tea room even has a wood burner for colder days. We have stayed in many holiday cottages all over the country and never returned, so the fact that this is our 4th stay says it all.
The house was exactly as described and a perfect place to stay for a walking holiday in this absolutely beautiful part of Yorkshire. It catered for all ages within our party (from 19-86), plus two dogs, with the drying room proving particularly useful for the rainy days. Helen was very helpful when we contacted her both before and during the holiday which contributed to the overall success of the holiday. There are plenty of great walks direct from the house, so there is no need to use the car if you don't want to (apart from buying groceries). The internet wasn't great - as clearly stated in the listing - but was good enough to keep the teenagers happy in the evening. We would definitely book this again if we come back to the area. Definitely recommended for a peaceful, away from it all, holiday.

Just back from a week in Keld staying in the Manse. The cottage has everything you need for a walking holiday and also caters really well for those more inclined to putting their feet up, reading and watching the world go by. The helpful information provided on booking meant we had arranged a food delivery from a supermarket chain which proved to be a top tip.
The beds are very comfortable, the shower hot and powerful, the kitchen very well equipped and WiFi is provided. As it was quite wet and muddy I was worried about the dogs coming in from the walks and making a mess, so was glad to find hard floors that were easy to keep clean.
The village of Keld is on both the Pennine Way and Coast to Coast routes and has a lot of circular walks from the doorstep such as the Keld waterfall walk. It is also a good base to access other towns and villages by car, such as Hawes, Reeth and Muker that have a range of visitor attractions.
The village has a small shop/tea room at the farm and Keld Lodge does meals and has a small bar.
Overall the Manse in Keld is a great place to stay.
