Forest Holidays: Cropton Cabins, North Yorkshire

On the edge of Yorkshire's dramatic North York Moors National Park, Forest Holidays combines the best of the surrounding landscapes at its Cropton Cabins location, with the added bonus of the coast less than an hour in one direction and the fabulous city of York an hour in the other.

Family holidays here mean an abundance of fresh air and outdoor activities and the opportunity to spend quality family time together in gorgeous surroundings, based in a cosy self-catering cabin. It's perfect for kids of all ages, from babies to teens, as well as with four-legged friends – these are very dog-friendly holidays!

There are three types of cabin, some sleeping up to 6 and some with an outdoor hot tub. Cots and highchairs can be hired, along with toys, a gas BBQ and entertainment packages (including WiFi and movies on demand). You also have the option of pre-booking food packs and meals so you don't need to lift a finger! You can even book spa treatments in your cabin, along with nail art activities for the kids.

When it comes to on-site activities, try your hand at archery and horse-riding, learn all about the forest with a ranger (including a Nightvision experience) and hire bikes for the whole family. Great all year (there are wood-burners to snuggle up in front of on colder days), Forest Holidays Cropton Cabins are a hit with families for Christmas holidays, half-term breaks, Easter getaways and summer holidays.
