This was our second stay at a Forrest Holidays resort and it lived up to expectations. We stayed in Golden Oak number 23 which is overlooking the forrest. The cabins are closer together than I had experienced at Blackwood but did not feel overlooked. We had a small issue with WIFI on our arrival but this was resolved without any... More

This was our second visit to Cropton and what an eye-opener. Last year, despite twiddling the thermostats, we didn't rate the underfloor heating and wished we had brought a heater with us as we were a bit chilly. We now realise that this wasn't actually working because this year we were as warm as toast, didn't really need slippers and... More

we've just returned from a 4 night stay in a Golden Oak lodge, we've never stayed at a Forest Holiday site before but we are extremely satisfied and have come home relaxed and rejuvenated. The cabin was clean, well equipped, modern and very comfortable. We booked a Golden Oak cabin as we wanted a hot tub and lodge burner. The... More

Lodge comfortable and warm. Nearly everything you need. Hot tub lovely. Reason for 3 stars is: 1. Lodge not secluded or private - having previously stayed in a lodge elsewhere where even though there were other lodges on site, the design was that you wouldn't have known 2. Lack of extras in the cabin - games, magazines, books etc left... More

Very disappointed. The lodge wasn't bad. But the service was appalling! Check in isn't until 4pm and they 1 hour late as they hadn't finished cleaning it. Decided to order the room service as we were so late it was dark and didn't know our way round. In-edible is the only word to describe what arrived. A green shrivelled over-microwaved... More

We recently stayed in a silver birch cabin with forest holidays Cropton. Our accommodation was beautiful with underfloor heating throughout and rooms regulated separately, very cosy. We went on a 10mile walk around the surrounding woods and never saw another person all day. it was 40 minute drive to Whitby and Scarborough. The hot tub on the front decking was... More

This was our first stay with Forest Holidays at Cropton and it won't be our last. What a relaxing setting and immaculately clean cabins. We all enjoyed the hot tub and its privacy. The staff were very helpful and no problems checking in. I would highly recommend it to friends and family.

We booked a golden oak 2 bed with hot tub. It was amazing! The cabin was plenty big enough for 4 adults which was definitely helped by the en-suite. The way the cabins were positioned meant that you had privacy without being overlooked when using the outdoor space. The only downside was that I'd registered online to check in between... More

Our cabin was perfect for a relaxing break it has everything you need for a short stay. It's open plan but the underfloor heating keeps everywhere warm or you can use the wood burner but we found it wasn't necessary. The bed was big and situated so you could look out to the forest through the large glass doors. The... More
