Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a lovely time at sandybrook. The facilities were excellent and my kids had a great time too. The swimming pool was lovely and the play area was lots of fun too. Unfortunately whilst visiting I burnt myself and was in a great deal of pain. The staff were excellent and would like to thank Natalie and Karen for all the help, they were very kind and efficient and went out the extra mile by checking I was okay. The only constructive feedback I would give is the shower area needs a bit more privacy 🥴 Overall excellent trip and would definitely visit again. Thank you to Paul and Terry too for the towels and being so friendly

Spent a wonderful, family weekend at Sandybrook lodges celebrating our son’s 30th birthday. Warm, friendly welcome at reception; spotless and perfectly appointed lodges; fantastic and well maintained facilities - there is nothing to fault about this place! Highlights for us were spending time in the hot tub and enjoying all the wildlife and beautiful landscaping around the lodge.

We had a lovely weekend. 4 ladies in a 4 bedroom lodge with HotTub. The lodge was clean/ tidy and well equipped. The hot tub was checked twice a day. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great location for walking into Ashbourne. Some lovely pubs and shops/ cafes to visit. The walk is a bit of a hill in places though. But not too much. Overall very happy and would return.

My husband, myself and our two boys came to celebrate my 30th birthday and everything was just perfect. The location is excellent and it was especially great to be so close to the beautiful dovedale stepping stones. Our toddler loved completing the teddy bear trail and enjoyed himself in the park and in the play room. The receptionists were kind and attentive. The swimming pool was warm and clean and our children really enjoyed it. The lodge was clean, spacious and cosy and the app was really helpful with local restaurants and takeaways. We couldn’t fault it and would love to stay again some time so thank you so much :)

Just returned from a weekend break with friends and 2 dogs . The lodges were spotlessly clean and have full amenities to use . Staff are so friendly and accommodating. We asked for 3 sofas , because 6 adults squeezed on to two sofas isn’t comfortable ? Third sofa was there within 10 minutes . Nice dog friendly restaurants near by . Lovely clean spaces to walk in . The only thing I could ask for is maybe a little coffee shop or restaurant in the grounds ??? But l would definitely recommend for long walks and super dog, friendly . Hopefully visit again soon . Thank you .

Great holiday park in a brilliant location. Close enough to many of the big draws in the Peaks. Close to good places for dinner (Ashbourne is close). A great value weekend away and good if you're looking to really explore the Peak District.

We got a last minute available lodge for NY . We were so impressed - lovely clean cosy lodge , facing into the woods. Great location for exploring the area. The pool was great , kids loved it . My 5 year old absolutely loved the activity of renting DVDs (a generation used to Netflix !) . Everything from Check in to leaving was made easy. Of particular note was the most helpful and friendly staff I have ever encountered (and we travel a lot ). They could not have been more welcoming and I really felt they were invested in us having an enjoyable stay . The lady on NYE went out her way for us too when we forgot towels. The park is lucky to have such amazing staff !

Lovely escape! Stayed here with my 2 year old over Halloween and it was lovely. The park had made an effort to make it special. The play park was a great size, the swimming pool was small but worked well for us. The walks were ideal for our little one’s legs and the kids’ play room was a lovely surprise! This park is ideal if you want to sit back and relax with the simplicity of life!

This park is great for a relaxing family holiday. The lodge was fully kitted and spacious. Done archery, swimming, minigolf and more within the park and we also visited plenty of attractions around the Peak District.
