Lovely but cooker didn't work
The bedrooms could do with dark blinds above the window as it was too light from 4.00am
Great place to unwind, lovely places to see and the staff were very helpful .

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.
I would stay there again it was very peaceful and relaxing.
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,
Had a smashing stay with family over the August bank holiday weekend . Relaxing surroundings all in all a great place to stay.
Beautiful relaxing chilled holiday!
Great time had, cleaning of lodge could be improved. Staff very helpful.
We really enjoyed our holiday had some lovely walks
Amazing place to stay! Log cabin beautiful inside and out. Quite and peaceful surroundings. Great for families! Food at the resturant amazing and fairly priced. Kids loved it and so pet friendly. Would stay again without a doubt love to go for Christmas.
A wonderful location only 20 mins from dalby forest. The lodge was clean and had everything we needed. Would definitely go back as a family and take the dog
Outstanding accommodation, paid for Sky and wifi, but didn't work for first full day and a half and no refund offered. Location was excellent, really quiet. Hot tub was always clean and ready for use. Site shop very expensive though. Bring your own food.
One of the most relaxing places to go.
Fantastic place. Really loved the tranquil setting. Hottub and gas bbq were a great addition. Loved it that much we are going back in October with the dog
