Cropton is situated on the southern fringe of the North York Moors National Park and is a community of farms, smallholdings and traditional houses and cottages only 5 minutes drive from the main A170 Thirsk to Scarborough road. This in turn gives quick and easy access to the market towns of Pickering and Kirkbymoorside to which Cropton is dependant for most of its every day amenity, although does have its own thriving village pub. The village is situated in the heart of great walking country and is surrounded by forestry and moorland. Its nearest train station is in Malton some 15 miles away where a direct service to York gives access to the Intercity London to Edinburgh service.

Sutherland Lodge is some 5 miles North East of Cropton and can be found ‘off the beaten track’ down a forestry Commision road. Sutherland Lodge is a former Victorian Hunting Lodge believed to date back to 1890. Built of Sandstone under a slate roof this striking Country House has splendid far reaching views over its own land, the adjoining forests and rolling countryside beyond. In recent years the property was used as an Activity Centre and then bought by a Private Owner who started a serious program of refurbishment with a view to producing guest rooms and a holiday let. This dream has been partially realised in the alterations and could be seen through to completion. The main residence has had its second floor altered to offer 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a ‘bunk’ room. The first floor has been arranged but not completed to offer a further 4 ensuite bedrooms. The Ground floor can be adapted to a purchasers requirements but offers atleast 6 reception rooms, 2 of which are quite sizeable ‘barn-like’ spaces. There are also storage rooms that flank these that could be utilised in many differing ways. Adjoining is a former coach house that has been renovated to offer a Dining Kitchen, Sitting room, 4 bedrooms (master en suite) and a house
