As a couple with a 2 year old son and a dog, I had quite a list of criteria what we wanted from a holiday-safe, dog-friendly, close to entertainment for a toddler, accommodating staff, utmost comfort so we didn't have anything to worry about...the list goes on. Anyway, in short-it was everything we hoped it would be! There are plenty... More

Our family of four (6 if you include 2 large dogs) had a really nice week at Cropton. It's like Center Parcs on a much smaller scale, and far more laid back. We stayed in a Silver 2-bed cabin, which was really well-equipped, with underfloor heating and a hot-tub on the decking. Wi-fi is available if you go for the... More

Well, the lodges are lovely. Top spec, under floor heating, clean and spacious. Our best lodge break to date. A lidl 10 minutes drive away and 50 minutes to the lovely East coast of scarborough. The forest is immense and pets are welcomed so very much a family /couples place to stay. Would visit again and highly recommend to anyone.... More

Just arrived home after a very relaxing short week in Cropton. We arrived on Monday to a very friendly welcome from the staff in the forest retreat. The shop in the retreat was well stocked with all the basics and even a few luxuries. Our cabin (no. 6) was clean, comfortable and well equipped and best of all, very private.... More

The cabins are nice however the company should be aware how little things can leave a tinge of disappointment as extras add up . - We paid well in excess of £900 for the weekend and found we were supplied with one toilet roll per bathroom if you want more you have to purchase it at the shop! The dishwasher... More

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!

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
