My boyfriend and i stayed here with 2 of out friends. The Lodge was beautiful as was the surrounding area. We went when there was really heavy snow and it was surreal sat in the hot tub drinking wine when snow was falling all around us. The heated floors in the bathroom were a god send after running through the snow back into the cabin. They are very spacious and have all you need. The beds are comfy and the showers really good. our cabin had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Cropton brewery is just up the road and we had a nice meal there. Also the little shop on site where i got a hot chocolate. Would love to go back again.

A pleasant setting next to the forest. First visit to cropton although we have stayed at some of their other sites (Kelldy and Forest of Dean). First impressions, the cabins are out in the open, not in between the trees but this was neither good or bad just different. The cabins are fairly new, with underfloor heating two bathrooms two bedrooms and a large kitchen / dinning area In fact very spacious. Odd items missing from kitchen but nothing to bother about, otherwise nice and clean. Hot tub was clean very warm and spacious, in fact we seemed to spend most of our evenings in there. So would I recommend this site. YES. We love it. if your looking for somewhere nice and peaceful to get away from it all than this is the place. staff very friendly and helpful In fact I hope they read this so I can thank them again for making our stay a very pleasant one.

Just got back from 3nts relaxing break staying in number 11 cabin silver birch 2 ,

It was our first time to cropton cabins and we were very impressed with everything it offered for a chilled out lazy 3 days.

The cabin we stayed in you just could not fault at all,
From the warm underfloor heating to the decor in all the rooms, and the kitchen had everything
you needed to cook your own meals.

Sitting in the hot tub under the nights sky with a few drinks with friends was amazing as it was minus 3 but so refreshing.

This place is less than 1 hour from were we live in middlesbrough with whitby, helmsley, scarborough, pickering ect makeing this site a perfect location for us.

All 4 of us had a great time and will certainly be going back,
We recommend anybody thinking of having a relaxing break to go for it.

Thanks to all the staff well done.

A lovely setting with nicely constructed lodges. Polite and friendly staff.

This could be 100% smashing, but sadly, some items, which could be quickly, easily and cheaply be attended to were missing.

When arriving in the dark.it was very difficult to identify which cabin was ours. We were given a site plan, but could not see any other signing, which, when there is no light and with heavy rain, the small sign on the cabin was nearly invisible.

There was no booklet in the cabin, so fathoming the ovens and trying to find the "sky films" was an adventure. We never found the films.

There was no roasting tray, I had tighten the pan handles, the gas lighter did not work for the oven, tea pot too small for 4 mugs of tea and there were quite a few cobwebs hanging from the ceiling. We ordered and paid for towels, but we only realised they were not there after the reception area has closed. Apparently, this was our fault for not telling the person who came round to see if we were settled in. We wondered about moaning to the staff about these things, but decided to maintain the ambiance of our relaxing break instead. But, as you may agree, all these items could be easily fixed.....

In some circumstances, the lack of the information booklet in our cabin could be quite serious, as there was no information on the location of a payphone for emergencies (no mobile communication anywhere). Because we are old and boring, we went out to look for one in the dark. There is indeed a payphone near to, but not visible from, the reception area, but if urgency is of the essence, perhaps there might not be time to go hunting.

The cabins were comfortable and those of our party who used the tot tubs liked them.

Compared to similar accommodation nearby, the value was excellent, but with the sorting out of a few glitches, could be superb.

Have stayed at this campsite at least half a dozen times and love it. We always live on our van so don't use toilet block but fully serviced pitches are excellent. The forest walks are never ending and our dogs love it. Miles and miles of off lead walks to explore. Have always found the staff very friendly and helpful and guys like Zac totally get what the outdoor escape is all about to people like us. Spent three weeks chilling there over Christmas and new year and intend to do the same again this December and January.

Stayed: December 2012
