“Midweek Break”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

What can we say that others have not! My husband, younger daughter and I stayed in Meadows Edge which my husband admired for its articulate attention to detail; I for its tasteful and homely interior, and my daughter for the king-size bed with en-suite! The views were fantastic and the cottages are in an ideal place for getting away from it all, but in an ideal position to get to all the places of interest in the surrounding area. We'll definitely be back!

Thanks to Ben and Sue for making us feel so welcome.

Excellent accomodation, we spent a week there to wind down - a really nice location to switch off and relax. Sue & Ben do all they can to help but are also fine with stepping back and letting you get on with it. Finlay is full of enthusiasm and no doubt has a great time there. We would pleased to go again.

The only negative I can think of is it a bit a b#gger to find, make sure you ignore your satnav and follow there instructions there are signposts at each turn.

What a fantastic place. Absolutely stunning cottages and Ben and Sue are the most hospitable people you could wish to meet. Sue went out of her way to arrange roses,chocolates and champagne upon our arrival. We stayed in Meadows Edge Cottage which totally blew us away on arrival. Spotlessly clean, wood burning stove lit for us and lighting dimmed to make it such a romantic setting. We cannot over emphasize the beautiful location of these cottages. Forestry on your doorstep and the tranquility is outstanding. If there was a higher standard than 5 star then these cottages would surely be in that standard. Nothing was any problem for Ben and Sue. Always there for you any time of the day (or night). Beautifully decorated cottages with stunning views over the forest and meadows. We will most definitely be coming back in the near future. We have stayed in many different places but I can honestly say this is one of the best,if not the best, we have ever stayed in. I would thoroughly recommend Cropton Forest Cottages for anybody looking for luxury and peacefulness. Credit to Ben and Sue (and Finlay !! )for working so hard to achieve the beautiful dwellings they have. STUNNING !!!!

What can I say - five star accomodation, five star location, five star owners and a five star family Christmas!! What a fantastic place Cropton Forest Lodge is.

From the moment we arrived we were blown away by this wonderful property. As we entered the conservatory entrance, beautifully decorated for the festive season, and made our way to our cottage, we new instantly what a great choice we had made! The attention to detail and the standard of the furnishings was the best we have ever enjoyed in a self catering property - and we have stayed in quite a few!!

We had taken over all the cottages with our family get together and Sue & Ben couldn't have made it better for us. They had worked really hard to accomodate us all by switching some of the cottages' furniture around to create a fabulous dining room that sat all 13 of us around a huge round table, and by creating a wonderful social sitting room that also had comfy seating for us all. There was nothing that they couldn't have done for us! Everything had been thought of - right down to the beautiful xmas decorations and candles.

Sue and Ben (and Finlay!!) - thank you so much for making our Christmas so enjoyable by giving us such a wonderful place to stay in - we are looking forward to seeing you both again in the summer. X

What a super place to spend an alternative Christmas! Peaceful, quiet and comfortable with fabulous walks from the doorstep. Having enjoyed a pleasant walk through the forest return to the cosy comfort of a superbly equipped cottage and toast your toes by the wood burning stove. What could be better? If you enjoy peace and tranquility, and delight in the Yorkshire countryside you will love Cropton Forest Lodge cottages. Half an hour's drive, over the beautiful, North Yorkshire moors, takes you to the coast, there are many wonderful and historic villages to visit in the locality and the scenic surroundings are hard to beat. Thank you to Sue and Ben for creating such a delightful hideaway, being such attentive hosts and sharing your little price of Yorkshire paradise with us. We'll be back!

A wonderful find. Located away from it all with the forest right on your doorstep. Beautifully decorated cottages, exceptionally comfortable, so lovely to return to after long walks exploring the moors and forest with our two boys. Can't wait to return. Thanks Sue and Ben for making us all feel so welcome, we had such a lovely break.

We searched the internet for 'five star luxury cottages' in North Yorkshire and Cropton Forest Lodge Cottages came up repeatedly - not surprising, because we have never stayed anywhere better. Set north of Pickering, the cottages are located in pine forests on the edge of the moors, in an area of outstanding beauty. Photographs on the website really do not do justice to the quality of the design and layout of Cropton Forest Lodge. All of the holiday cottages have been converted to a superb standard by owners Ben and Sue, with high quality fittings and everything you could want for a lovely holiday. Willows End has two generous en suite double bedrooms with super king size beds, plus one single bedroom and a further bathroom. Downstairs is a beautiful kitchen with range cooker and a sitting room with log stove.

Our holiday was relaxing and restful, just as we needed. Ben and Sue are delightful hosts who took care of everything. We look forward to returning in 2014!
