Sandybrook is perfect for entertaining kids either on family days out in the Peak District (see above for ideas) or in its varied on-site facilities.
Top of our list is the indoor heated swimming pool, which is superbly family friendly and has a separate toddler area.
There’s plenty of safe outdoor space to explore, including woodland walks with magnificent bluebells to spot, a bug hotel and wooden naughts and crosses. Kids will also enjoy the large recreation field, perfect for ball games, not to mention the play area with climbing frames, swings and slides.
Younger tots will enjoy letting off steam in Sandybrook’s dedicated toddler play room with ride on toys, slide, den, play mat, toy kitchen and so on. While for older children there’s a games room handily situated above the bar and restaurant featuring pool tables, air hockey and table football (small fees apply to all).
