Luxury lodges with a value of more than £2m have been reserved following the launch of an exclusive new staycation development in North Yorkshire.

Keld Spring Lodge Retreat will be the epitome of high-end staycation destination experiences, featuring premium lodges in a prime location surrounded by beautiful scenery.

Launched by staycation destination developer Actually Group over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, the flagship development will offer 30 luxurious, low-carbon lodges, with the first due to be in place on the nine-acre site by June.

Situated near the village of Wombleton in Ryedale, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and the Howardian Hills, Keld Spring is aimed at people aspiring to own a luxury holiday home in a prime location, as well as investors seeking a lucrative investment opportunity.

Actually Group’s ambition is to transform the UK staycation holiday market, combining bespoke, architect-led sustainable lodge designs with contemporary interiors and innovative technology.

Lodges available at Keld Spring include the two or three bedroom Herriot, named after the late North Yorkshire author and vet James Herriot, and the two or three bedroom Rye, named after the region’s famous River Rye.

Each lodge will be custom designed to best suit owners’ lifestyles and tastes, with flexible layouts and stylish interior design options.

The secure, gated retreat will feature a lake in the beautifully landscaped setting while owners will be able to enjoy spacious open plan living areas and outdoor terraces, perfect for embracing open-air living and al fresco dining.

Andy Sutton, CEO of Actually Group, said: “The launch was a great success and it was a pleasure for our team to talk through ideas with potential buyers, helping them to visualise their dreams and how we can make them a reality.

“Keld Spring will offer a different level of luxurious lodge living and bring a whole new dimension to the UK staycation market.

“We’re delighted to have secured so many reservations at such an early stage in this exciting project. We’re now looking forward to the first lodges arriving and watching Keld Spring come to life over the coming months.”

The area is one of the UK’s most desirable holiday destinations, with panoramic views and an abundance of scenic walks, historic and cultural attractions.

Rhodri Andrews, Marketing Director of Actually Group, said: “The location couldn’t be better and provides the perfect backdrop to everything you could wish for in a luxury staycation destination.

“The premium lodges at Keld Spring will be of the highest quality, providing owners with a hugely desirable lifestyle in a stunning setting.

“We’re delighted the launch weekend was such a success and we’re looking forward to interest in the development and demand for the lodges growing as Keld Spring takes shape.”

Actually Group offers a complete end-to-end package, from land acquisition and development, to lodge design and manufacturing, and destination management and marketing.

Actually Group has a growing portfolio of high-end developments in many of the most sought-after UK holiday locations, including North Wales, Cumbria, Cornwall and Devon. The company is aiming to create 15 new destinations, 1,000 lodges and 500 jobs by the end of next year.

It recently announced the acquisition of Preseli Lodges and Garden Rooms, based in Pembrokeshire, west Wales. Now rebranded as Actually Lodges, the manufacturer will supply the ultra-low-carbon sustainable luxury lodges for Actually Group’s sites.
