INTRODUCING THE FOREST RETREAT

The heart of our Cropton location


The Forest Retreat the place to meet, eat, drink, book activities and stock up; it’s at the heart of our Cropton location. Meet the Forest Ranger and the reception team, who will help you with enquiries and book activities for you. Enjoy a relaxing drink, or freshly ground coffee, pizzas and snacks in our comfortable seating area, buy your groceries, treats and gifts in the shop; and if the sun is shining, enjoy a drink out on the Forest Retreat decking area!

MEET THE CROPTON TEAM

Your forest concierge


At the Forest Retreat you’ll meet the team whose job it is to help you make the most of your holiday. We’re on hand whenever you need help and advice and we’ll book activities and adventures for you too. Make sure you catch up with the Forest Ranger, who will help you to discover the secrets of the forest around you.

A GREAT SELECTION OF QUALITY FRESH PRODUCE

For delicious home-cooked meals in your cabin.


The Forest Retreat shop provides everything from breakfasts to barbecues; from special treats to everyday essentials. Sourced locally wherever possible, you’ll find fresh meats and cheeses, quality preserves and chutneys and much more. Bread is also freshly baked on-site each day.

MEALS AND SNACKS TO EAT IN OR TAKE AWAY

Take a break from cooking


Why not take a break from the cooking while you're on your holiday? Our specialities include handmade oven-baked pizzas, delicious local pies and more. We’re serving all day, from breakfast to dinner, and all points between. Pick a table and enjoy a meal in the Forest Retreat or in the summer eat outside on the beautiful decking area. Or if you would rather eat in the comfort of your cabin, order a take away from the Forest Retreat! You can even pre-order breakfast packs and pizza packs when you book your holiday online and have them delivered straight to your cabin!

A SELECTION OF CHAMPAGNES, WINES AND BEERS

Including local specialities


The well-stocked Forest Retreat bar is the ideal meeting place after a day of woodland adventures. Choose from a carefully selected range of Champagnes, wines and beers, including some exciting local specialities. Relax in in the outside seating area or buy drinks to take back and enjoy in the comfort of your cabin.

REMARKABLE MEALS FROM THE “COOK” RANGE

Frozen meals that taste homemade (or maybe a little bit better!)


We’re delighted to be working with family company COOK, who supply a mouthwatering selection of ready-prepared frozen meals. The meals are carefully put together by COOK’s own chefs, and taste as good as home-cooked food, without any of the effort. Simply pop them in the oven and relax.

FOREST GIFTS AND SOUVENIRS

With something for everyone, including the dog!


Visit the Forest Retreat shop for some wonderful gift ideas for friends and family. There’s a range of toys and games, including some irresistible soft toys, for the children. And don’t forget the Doggy Deli Delights for your favourite pet!

Pottery Painting for Children

Woodland themed fun for rainy days


Buy your pottery painting pack at the Forest Retreat and we’ll make space for the children to get creative. Who knows what you’ll end up with; perhaps an orange frog, a green owl or a colourful woodland fairy. As the children pour creative energy into their masterpiece, we’ll pour you a coffee and you can enjoy a few moments peace of your own. No need to prebook; just turn up, have fun and leave with a special holiday memento.
