Stunning hilltop views, hidden crystal clear lakes and a brilliantly diverse pool of wildlife. No, that isn’t a description of a foreign paradise, rather one of the country’s oldest national parks which sits inside Derbyshire.

The Peak District is a fantastic opportunity to have a “staycation”. Who needs jetting off to a different country when a plethora of holidaying options are at your fingertips within the national park? Treehouses, hotels, cottages and log cabins are just a handful of the ways you can experience a Peak District staycation.

The national park not only offers some of the best views in the country, but it’s also home to a glamping spot named in the top three camping, glamping and holiday parks of the year by Visit Britain. Perched on the Peak District border is Landal Sandybrook which provides luxury self-catering lodge holiday accommodation.

Set in the former grounds of Sandybrook Hall, you will be provided with a peaceful and relaxing base to enjoy a holiday in the Peak District. The accommodation in cosy log cabins sleeps from two to eight people, fantastic for a group trip or a break away with your partner.

Perfect for a relaxing break, an exciting activity holiday or a romantic weekend away, it is an ideal location for exploring the southern Peak District before returning to the comfort of your log cabin. With hot tubs and a new swimming pool, there are lots of ways to enjoy your time.

Cosy cabins offer a self-catering break for up to eight people

Coming off the back of winning gold in the Derbyshire and Peak District Awards, Landal Sandybrook finished third in the Visit Britain awards. The holiday park lets you relax and enjoy your holiday whatever the time of year.

The lodges are located on a hillside with views over the Derbyshire Dales. There are even spa lodges that include a hot tub on the lodge’s veranda and many of the park’s lodges are pet friendly.

Landal Sandybrook is an ideal location for exploring everything Derbyshire has on offer. A bike ride up the Tissington Trail, a picnic in Chatsworth Gardens or a quiet county walk through one of the nearby quaint villages all are easily accessible.

Dovedale, a popular beauty spot, is also nearby with its lovely stepping stones across the River Dove and spectacular views from the top of Thorpe Cloud. Thrill-seekers could even hop over the Derbyshire border and visit Alton Towers, which is only a short twenty-five-minute drive away.

A three-night stay over a weekend in July 2022, with one bedroom for two people, will cost upwards of £515. For more information about Landal Sandybrook visit the park’s webpage here.
