I've previously stayed at other lodge holiday destinations so I always compare them to Forest Holidays which has always been my favourite so far! We stayed in the Poachers lodge in February for 4 nights. Comparing to my stay at Forest Holidays in December the Poachers is quite a bit more old fashioned. Furniture is quite mix-match. All different wood... More

We often stay at Griffin Forest and find the cabins very clean, fully kitted out. The cabins are in a great location not far from the park and ride. The hot tubs are a great bonus. With bikes to hire on site, walks and golf, this had to be one of the best places in York to stay.

An amazing break in a Poacher lodge with everything catered for a relaxing, romantic break. Location great for York and local bars and shopping. The hot-tub was the highlight of our 3 night break, sitting in the hot-tub whilst watching the local wildlife visit the decking area oblivious to our presence. We will be returning here every year from now... More

Our second visit. Have booked again already for a weekend in May, LOVE this place. Lovely rustic homey log cabins with totally secluded hot tubs in the middle of the forest. BLISS. The wildlife all around you is amazing and just a short walk along the trail brings you to 'Tykes Restaurant'. We ate in the restaurant both times we... More

If you are thinking about booking this place, stop thinking and do it! Just returned from one of the "plus" cabins as a group of 4, everything to a high standard, very clean, ideal location for sight seeing, ideal spot for complete relaxation. So impressed that we have already booked our return trip from 2016.

Griffon Forest is handily placed just outside York, not far from the Park 'n' ride should you wish to visit. The forest itself is large and the cabins nicely spaced out around it with reasonable privacy. We stayed in 'Gardeners Premier' and our hot tub was unable to be viewed by anyone else. Two double ensuite bedrooms make it ideal... More

This was our second visit to Griffon Forest and it was amazing!! We stayed in the Poachers Premier and there were flowers, choc and Champers on arrival and as it was our wedding anniversary it was a lovely touch. Accommodation is 5* and the location is excellent. The lodge was fully equipped and even came with complimentary dressing robes. Four... More
