Really enjoyed a peaceful week in Willow's End. Cottage furnished to a very high standard and was incredibly cosy despite the wind and rain outside. Forest roads were perfect for running too. A pleasure to stay somewhere so quiet and off the beaten track. Thank you Sue

Yet again the most amazing, enjoyable, relaxing holiday of the year. Our stay in Brock cottage was so comfortable we were reluctant to return to real life! Sue, hope you don't mind, just a couple of suggestions for the kitchen, a measuring jug and a couple of champagne flutes for us girls!

We had a 3 night stay in meadows edge with 4 adults. The cottage was so spacious with huge double ensuite rooms. Sue was on hand to greet us and for any other questions during the weekend. She has thought of everything you could need and there were so many homely touches. The log burner was a real cosy treat... More

Thank you so much Sue for your flexibility in allowing us to stop in Middlehead Cottage at such short notice. We really enjoyed our long weekend and could not recommend Cropton Forest Lodge enough. Great location, high calibre accommodation and a friendly welcome. The children didn't want to leave and if the truth be known nor did the adults!!

We stayed in Meadows Edge cottage very recently and we all thoroughly enjoyed our few days break. Sue was very friendly and a great host, which also made us feel very welcome on our arrival and throughout our stay. The cottages are off the beaten track and positioned in amazing countryside, nice and quiet, perfect for relaxing. The décor inside... More

I stayed at Meadows Edge cottage recently and was so happy with the place, stunning with no detail missed. The pictures and website do not do the properties justice. Sue was a great host, there to greet us and give a few tips to make a fantastic weekend. Cropton Forest cottages are set in the middle of the forest, perfect... More

We stayed in Willows End cottage last weekend with friends and had a wonderful time. The cottage was beautifully decorated throughout and was really well equipped. A ready supply of wood and kindling was available for the lovely wood burner, we were really cosy ! The wifi connection was really good too which was a bonus. We will be back... More

We stayed in Brock Cottage, it was immaculately finished (as were all the other cottages on site that we saw) with everything that we needed. The setup is cleverly done and would be great to go with friends or an extended family as you would all have your own space but can be together. The walls are so thick it... More

We spent a week here in July, and loved it. We had our dog with us so were in Middlehead Cottage, which faces a big grassy field and woods beyond. Really comfortable, well-equipped kitchen, lovely beds and Sue was a very welcoming and friendly owner - made us feel at home and gave us lots of ideas and brochures of... More
