Cropton Lodges Reviews
This is the place to be,imaculate log cabin,with fantastic surrounings.The staff hapy and very helpful.The Hot tub was great after a long walk in the forest.A great time .Can't wait to return in the autumn.
we had a lovely break at cropton lodges, and we will be returning.
wonderfully clean, great staff . A fab holiday!
Well appointed. My wife wants to buy one. Microwave and cooker could have been a bit more stable. Hot tub was a dream and great in the cold evenings.

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.
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!!

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.
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.

The fee of £10 per dog per night seems a little high.
This holiday park is lovely, a perfect retreat and we can't wait to book again. The hot tub sold it for us and I think this trip will be a yearly event.
The location was beautiful with lots to explore.
The Forest Holidays experience is a good one and at present feel we will be working through all the parks. Booking through Hoseasons was worth our while as we got an NHS discount.
The holiday site was clean, open and friendly. Staff were excellent and pleasant. Would go back again very nice site.
Excellent location, friendly staff and lodges are furnished very well. Lots of forest walks, lots of things for the kids to do - bike rides, walks, feeding the animals.
We would recommend this site, very good staff, cabins stylish and comfy.
A very relaxed atmosphere, facilities good for campers, the local shop cooked home made bread each morning this was an excellent touch to know each morning your bread was ready waiting for you!!
A lovely peaceful location and the cabins warm, cosy and comfortable.
Really relaxing, a peaceful place to be.
Very nice cabins in lovely area.
