This short break was our honeymoon, and we were so, so pleased that we chose our cabin hideaway in the Cropton Forest!! What an amazing place! Everything was perfect! The attention to detail for a couple on honeymoon was second to none!! When we arrived, we were seated in the tastefully decorated reception area and brought a small bottle of... More

Had a lovely mid week break at Cropton. Friendly helpful staff and enjoyed the food and a drink at the retreat. This was our third visit to a Forest Holiday location and cannot wait to stay at another. Great base to explore North Yorkshire, spent a day in York and another cycling the Cinder Track along the coast to Whitby.

Think of woodlands: tall pine trees; birds singing; squirrels scurrying; deer feeding; walking routes and cycle paths... safe lodges that are well kept and a hot tub with opportunities for self-catering or local pub food and this might be the place for you. Bring your bikes if possible (to save money). Forget mobile phones and the Internet... drop the TV... More

I've been on a forest holiday before and loved it. We also love Scarborough but caravan holidays just don't do it for us. So this seemed like the best choice. Expensive but what we wanted. I have to say that our cabin wasn't as good as the one in Sherwood Forest. Firstly, it wasn't cleaned properly. For me, not normally... More

We booked a couples cabin (one bedroom) for three nights (Fri thru Sun) in July 2015. The first impressions of the site were great, there's a central building that houses the reception, cafe/bar, small shop and cycle hire facilities. Checking in was easy, and the staff were friendly - I think the resort was built in the last eighteen months,... More

Stayed in a Golden Oak in June 2015 and was really looking forward to this "luxurious" log cabin but wish I had read these reviews before we booked. The area is stunning and I was amazed by the beautiful woods which offer fantastic walks and friendly wildlife. You are in the middle of nowhere and without mobile signal or a... More

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay. Your cabin should have been spotlessly clean upon your arrival and we apologise that it wasn’t. We hate to think that you spent time cleaning; the team would have attended to it immediately if you had informed them. We are pleased that... More

just back from a very peaceful break in a golden oak cabin (no 3)and will definitely be going back - after reading some reviews we were a little cautious on what to expect but now realize that you can not keep everyone happy and some people will moan for the sake of moaning, ie.. The windows are very clean and... More

Stayed here at the Cropton site for our wedding anniversary weekend. We have stayed previously at other sites. Can't recommend Forest Holidays highly enough. From the moment we stepped through the cabin door it is pure relaxation and "us time". The Golden Oak cabins are a must as the hot tub and log burner really makes for the whole experience.... More

As we reside a large part of our lives in the Middle East we wanted somewhere with a bit of green and away from the dust. We couldn’t have picked anywhere more appropriate. The lodges are situated up a leafy lane just outside the village of Cropton and occupy a large grassy clearing within the forest. There are numerous walks,... More

These are lovely cabins. All mod-cons, clean and comfortable set in a forest clearing. All are on one level making access easy, hot tub etc and log burner though the welcome pack is stingy and comprises one log and a few twigs! (we're in a forest for goodness sake!) Other areas for improvement are... check in is very late at... More
