Where's Cropton Lodges?
Date of stay: 4th May 2018
Can't wait to return, the place was perfect. Only minor issue was I was quite alarmed one morning/day with really loud noises in the sky that literally got me out of bed so I was quite on edge after that, I wonder if it is near an air field? I would love to know so I could relax next time without worrying it's something more sinister!

Date of stay: 26th March 2018
The cabin is lovely and very comfortable. The downsides were the patio which needed sweeping and cleaning and the dirty windows.

Very well appointed but the addition of a chest of drawers in the main bedroom would be of benefit, as there is a lack of storage space.

Date of stay: 1st May 2017
Having previously stayed in a Golden Oak at Sherwood I booked the last cabin at Cropton which was a Copper Beech. The standard of the cabin was comparable however the setting was not so private. (This was the wheelchair friendly cabin which has to be close to the Retreat) I did notice that new shrubs and trees have been planted recently to improve privacy and this will really make a big difference. Having said that, all the cabins are cleverly placed on the site. Cleanliness was very good inside though I felt the deck could benefit from a little attention. Super airy lounge area with excellent L-shaped sofa. Very comfortable beds too. Finally, all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Any little snags were quickly attended to. We had 2 lunches at The Retreat which were enjoyable sitting outside on the deck. Overall a lovely weekend.

We had a great time away, the cabin was lovely, had everything, the only disappointment was that we was expecting a log burner and didnt have one. We reported two issues and someone was with us in minutes, and fixed both problems,

Fantastic lodge everything was there that we needed, very comfortable , hot tub was a bonus , our first ever holiday with forest holidays was at Deerpark, Cornwall.
Steven, Leeds
Date of stay: 13th March 2017
Lovely location, very good accomodation, only thing that let it down was the lack of bath robes and the slippers normally supplied at every other lodge and cottage we have stayed in which are numerous .
Claire, Durham
Date of stay: 2nd January 2017
Lodge was lovely albeit a little overpriced, but you do expect to pay extra for the time of year, some signs of wear and tear in the family bathroom , hot tub was great and the surroundings were very relaxing. Access to our lodge was via a three-step stairway, the bottom step of which was badly damaged - we did report this on the first day (especially as the weather conditions meant it was icy) it wasn't fixed before we left, but we didn't expect maintenance people to be available during the New Year break; didn't spoil our stay. Lunch in the on-site cafe on New Year's Day was nice too!
Helen, Scarborough
Date of stay: 31st October 2016
The Golden Oak1 was a magnificent cabin, cosy and spacious at the same time, quiet and relaxing and just enough space between all the cabins

The lodge was much bigger than we expected. A minor point, but could do with washing up liquid and floor cleaner in the lodges. We didn't have any with us but weren't made aware we would need to bring any.

Date of stay: 28th March 2016
we often do log cabin with hot tub hoildays, cropton was up there at the top, large lodge very light and welcoming. The hot tub was also very large and always warm. very welcoming to dogs.

if wanted to be picky bit of dust aroundon light shades ect and the decking a little green in places. Just also be beware car parking at some lodges is a distance from the lodges OH and no phone signal and if you want WiFi you need to buy the entertainment package.

Had all the amenities you needed. Warm, clean and cosy.
Roy, Rotherham
Date of stay: 7th August 2015
Lovely break albeit a little on the expensive side. The price we paid, we would have expected wifi/TV to be part of the package but was charged an additional £10 per day for this service (£40-4 days). Beautiful location as well as pet-friendly. Grass around the lodges left to grow to ' encourage the local flora and fauna' according to the ranger in charge of our area. It would be far nicer if the grass was kept mowed so children could play around the lodges. Could not fault the actual lodges ( ours was no 36 - copper beech ). The only criticism if I had to voice one would be that the stairs and decked area could benefit from a jet wash as ours was quite dirty.
It doesn't detract from what was all in all a lovely 4 days at Cropton Lodges.
Karen, Lancashire
Date of stay: 31st July 2015
The fixtures and furnishings were great. It's a shame to have to mark it down but unfortunately I found the cutlery, cups etc to be a bit dirty. I re washed them myself. The rest of the lodge was spotless, it was just the kitchen pots etc, also the verandah could have done with a clean. There was a tissue and a plaster on the floor on ours on arrival. I would have expected these items to have been cleared. Still a great lodge though, just need to improve on little areas of cleaning.
Adele, Barnsley
Date of stay: 22nd June 2015

Kathryn, West Yorkshire

A lot of black in the bathrooms & smelt very foisty. Also piece of wood hanging off in bedroom. Could do with black out blinds in bedrooms too. Other than that the lodge was baeutiful.
Lyndsay, York
Date of stay: 16th February 2015
Dishwasher was disgusting and we were unable to use it, the dishes and glass ware were greasy and dirty. the shower in the main bathroom didn't work and the second shower leaked, over all the place was dirty and I had to give it a good clean before we used anything!!
Victoria, Norwich
Date of stay: 13th February 2015
Lovely peaceful surroundings, lodge very well equipt, clean and comfortable. Hot tub was immaculate. Nice pub - The Cropton Brewery about 5 mins drive away. Beds comfortable, towels provided as we were in Golden Oak lodge. No hairdryers/irons. Underfloor heating was lovely.

Staff in the Forest Retreat miserable, everything was an effort for them, looked at us like dirt. Food in there appalling.
Heather, Wakefield
Date of stay: 9th February 2015
Had to ask for a bread knife ... few things listed in book were not actually in the cabin mainly kitchen items. Would also expect washing up liquid by the sink but none.

For cleanliness under the sofa's had not been dusted or cleaned for looked like quite a while. I had clean them myself as when the sun light came through it was very notciable. I also had to wash some of the plates before use.

The only reason I am giving furniture and fittings a 9 is because on a nighttime even though we closed the doors they would bang and rattle

Situated in a excellent area, perfect for a restfull brake but still within distance of the local attractions. Only problem is getting the grand children out of the hot tub.
Dawn, Knaresborough
Date of stay: 25th August 2014
Was a nice place in a nice location but the lodge was advertised to include DVD player and Wii neither of which were in the lodge so we ended up taking DVDs and games with us which were if no use and spending a further £30 on the entertainment package which we could have saved had we known in advance. The holiday wasn't cheap to start with but I didn't mind paying more for a luxury lodge with all the extras. However we had to pay extra for a lot of what I would have expected to be included eg. Entertainment pack, map for on site walks, logs for log burner etc
Tracey, Norfolk
Date of stay: 25th August 2014
A very relaxing location with no mobile signal for about 4 miles and internet only if you pay £30 extra. Lovely hot tub which was spoiled a little by presence of flies.
Danielle, Nottingham
Date of stay: 25th August 2014
The lodges were lovely
Catherine, York
Date of stay: 18th August 2014
The lodge is superb though pricey. I thought having to pay 30 pounds extra for a 4 day entertainment pass so we could have internet access and watch films was quite a cheek considering what we had paid for the weekend.
Barrie, Rotherham
Date of stay: 18th August 2014
One of the best places I have stop, very quite and very very relaxing.

It was very warm when we were there and it was quite difficult to cool the rooms down. However this didn't spoil our holiday as we spent a lot of time outside and in the hot tub.
Walks round the forest not as clearly marked as on other sites we have been on.

Only a few things to improve on, needed new frying pan in kitchen and bottle opener.
Arrived to dirty grill.
Absolutely amazing, although they could be a little more activities for children, or a welcome weekend pack for the little ones.... and would be great for some night entertainment on site...
Lovely romantic setting and extra touches
Fabulous place, and lovely clean lodge. Only downside was the limited days activities were on, could only do certain things on a Wednesday or Sunday which made some activities out of each.
Great holiday! Would love to go again!
Beautiful peaceful secluded location with lovely walks and fantastic wildlife.
Had a ladies cousins away time fantastic unwind very recommend peace quiet and fun
We had a great weekend for my daughters 21st can't wait to go back
we have stayed in these lodges several times now, the one before this being the gold, that one was the best one, could'nt fault it , this one was ok. It was in a fantastic location and the emenities were ok, the wi-fi is really expensive and should be included in the price though.Another fault with it was the decking and shelving outside had not been cleaned in a long time and also the benches and table, i had to clean them myself before i could use them.... WITH A SCRUBBING BRUSH!!!!!

Fun Days Out near Cropton Lodges

about 7 Miles
Situated in Malton in North Yorkshire this has to be one of our favourite family days out.  It's a theme park and zoo all in one stretching over a massive 400 acres. With thrilling rides for the very daring like Cliff Hanger, Corkscrew and Kumali, there are also more gentle rides for the little ones such as Frog Hopper and Helitoys.  Family fun attractions include the 4D cinema, the lost river ride and the Little Monsters Den of Mischief. Check out their website for seasonal events which take place throughout the year and you can also gain more information about the zoo.  Flamingo Land is a resort as well as a theme park so you can also book accommodation there.
about 13 Miles
Castle Howard is one of the regions most beautiful and historic landmarks and is located in 1,000 acres of parkland with breathtaking gardens to explore. As well as exploring the castle visitors can enjoy attractios including the unique Land Train - the best way to see the entire park. There is also a large lake offering boat trips during the summer months. In high season the site is very popular with families and offers organised activities for children including tours, talks, crafting and animal encounters. The site also has a Nature Trail which is fun for the whole family and an Adventure Playground where children can run off some energy.
about 13 Miles
Located in Harwood Dale Village, North Yorkshire we think this attraction makes a superb family day out and couples will also enjoy the nature walks in the area.  There are 6 nature walks in total surrounding the farm so walkers and lovers of the outdoors will be in their element. Some of our favourite walks include the Spring Flowers, Pond and Village walk which takes around 35 minutes, and the Meadow and Trees walk which takes one hour.
about 14 Miles
Yorkshire Lavender is an amazing award winning attraction offering breathtaking panoramic views of York, a Café, Plant Nursery and Lavender Gardens. The 60 acre site is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is an excellent choice for a day trip. The onsite shops sells Lavender products such as bath and body treats, skincare, medicine and herbal remedies.
about 15 Miles
Betton Farm Visitor Centre is the ideal attraction close to the North Yorkshire coastal town of Scarborough. This animal farm has all the cute farm animals you would expect to see and will appeal to younger children especially.  A great place to both play and learn we think the Betton Farm Visitor centre is great value for money.  Check out their website for the latest opening times and admission costs.  Some of the highlights of the day might include meeting Sofie the Shetland Pony and Henry the goat, as well as the pot bellied pigs called Porky and Hammy. 
about 17 Miles
If you are enjoying a lodge break in the Yorkshire Moors and Coast then a day trip to the Scarborough Sea Life and Marine Sanctuary highly recommended. This centre is one of the regions most popular attractions and is educational as well as fun. Visitors will enjoy a journey beneath the waves, meeting many strange, beautiful and fascinating creatures of the deep. As well as mighty sharks and beautiful rays guests can get up close to some more common creatures including star fish and can also meet the otters, seals and penguins at feeding time. The site also has children's play area and picnic tables as well as a restaurant and souvenir shop. Family tickets cost £46.80 but the Tourist Information Centres in Scarborough, Whitby or Filey often offer fantastic discounts.
about 17 Miles
Located in the Scalby Mills area of Scarborough this makes a fun family day out for those who are interested in marine life. The fantastic ocean tank is well worth seeing - it's been transformed into a Turtle Reef and you can see an amazing array of colourful reef fish and coral. You may also catch a glimpse of the tropical sharks and turtles. Offering good value for money this is a day out with a difference and an all weather attraction.
about 17 Miles
This attraction is ideal for sunny days as the beautiful park is ideal for wandering out and taking in the scenery.  You can hire boats including rowing boats and canoes to enjoy the views from the water.  The pedalos with the dragon heads are always a popular choice too. Look out for special events including the Battle of Peasholm Park Naval Battle which has been described as a "must see".  You can also take a ride on the North Bay Railway which will delight children.
about 24 Miles
Come rain or shine children need to be entertained and Creepy Crawlies just north of York is the perfect place! This all weather attraction caters for toddlers and children up to 12 years old with a huge array of climbing equipment, ball pools, slides, chutes and adventure areas. Adults can relax and enjoy a coffee and a snack while the kids are having fun.  The site also has a large and rather impressive outdoor area with pet zone and pedal track with Go karts. There is also a pond with fish and a sensory zone where children can touch and feel new and interesting things.
about 26 Miles
Jorvik Viking Centre is a fun and educational attraction offering visitors the chance to learn all about the Viking-Age city of Jorvik. Thanks to the Archaeologists from York Archaeological Trust the amazing houses, workshops and backyards of the Viking-Age city of Jorvik are on display and give a clear insight to the way of life all those years ago.  The site aims to offer an interactive experience with the state of the art time capsule and the blacksmith's furnace being the top attractions.
about 26 Miles
Dig is a unique and somewhat educational attraction in York offering children the opportunity to enjoy excavation, discovery, and digging. Within the site is a discovery centre, several pits filled with Roman and Medieval ruins and a science lab where children can take part in exciting experiments. Staff are on hand at all times to help the children and to ensure they get the most from the experience. The attraction can get busy during school holidays and pre booking is recommended.
about 26 Miles
Madhyamaka Meditation Centre  a unique and very special centre in the Yorkshire moors offering amazing meditation experiences for experts and novices. The beautiful setting really ads to the experience and the gorgeous grounds are abundant with wildlife including Squirrels, Deer and Birds including Red Kites. The centre is now offering a special weekend retreat for families which includes family friendly guided meditations as well as fun activities such as face painting, games and a barbeque.
about 26 Miles
If you are enjoying a lodge holiday in Yorkshire then a visit to York Maze is a must! This summertime attraction is now one of the most popular in the region offering fun for the whole family. The maze has been improved this year and is now bigger and better than ever before. Carved from an amazing 1.5 million growing maize plants it is thought to be the largest maze in the world! As well as the maze itself the site boasts an adventure playground, 9 hole crazy golf courses and an animal petting area where children can meet the cute and friendly animals that eat the maize and watch pig racing! Tractor and trailer rides around the maize are also available and are recommended for those with young children.
about 30 Miles
Situated in the Ripon area of North Yorkshire this popular theme park makes a fantastic day out for the whole family.  The more daring will love the big and thrilling rides such as Raptor Attack, The Ultimate and Trauma Tower.  For the little ones there are some excellent attractions such as Flying Camels, Dodgems and a Magic Wheel.  Toddlers will like the Dragon Boats and the Lightwater Express amongst other things. There are over 40 rides and attractions in total and we think this is excellent value for money too.  If you book your tickets in advance online you can save even more money and beat the queues.
about 30 Miles
This is a recommended day out for families with young children visiting the Bedale area of Yorkshire.  Visit the farm and receive a warm welcome as well as a guided tour.  You will have the chance to bottle feed the lambs, bath a pig and handle some of the smaller animals.  Kids will love the big sandpit and the outdoor play area. There is also a cafe and indoor play area for when the weather is not on your side.
