Sandybrook is located close to the picturesque market town of Ashbourne on the southern fringe of the Peak District and with just 53 lodges, it is a small and peaceful holiday park. The luxury lodges are located in the former grounds of a 19th century manor house with a historic pinetum and bluebell wood which provide a peaceful setting from which to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Alternatively you can take part in a range of sporting activities onsite, relax in the swimming pool, visit nearby Alton Towers or explore the neighbouring walks and cycling trails.

We pride ourselves on complimenting the natural beauty of the Peak District and we are  committed to protecting and enhancing the natural environment. We have recently been awarded the Green Key Accreditation for our commitment to the environment and sustainability. We are very proud that our lodges are built locally by Pinelog, we use a range of local suppliers and we have a dedicated conservation champion to protect and enhance our natural environment and wildlife. 

Green Key Accreditation

Protecting the natural environment is important to us and that is why we are proud to have been accredited with Green Key which is an international eco-label for tourism facilities. Since 1994, Green Key has been a leading standard of excellence in environmental responsibility and sustainable operation within the tourism industry. The Green Key programme is run by the Foundation for Environmental Education. Green Key provides a well-proven framework for an establishment to work with its environmental management on sustainability issues, including awareness raising. The high environmental standards expected of these establishments are maintained through rigorous documentation and frequent on-site audits. For guests, a Green Key shows that the establishment is committed to reducing the environment impact of their stay. The Green Key programme is linked to the Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030 addressed by the United Nations.
