    Thornbridge Outdoors

    3 self-contained accommodation buildings sleeping 38, 38 and 10 respectively in a 30 acre site located in the heart of the Peak District on the Monsal Trail. Ideal for family and friends, clubs and organised groups.


    Our fantastic location in the heart of the Peak District gives you access to wonderful countryside, interesting places to visit and towns / villages to explore. We have the traffic free Monsal Trail right on our door step which is fantastic for accessing walking and cycling routes directly from our site.

    Our Accommodation

    Our 3 self-contained accommodation buildings, the 'Lodge', the 'Farm House' and 'Woodlands' (accessible) have their own fully equipped kitchen, dining / lounge room with a LCD TV, Blu-ray player and free WiFi access. Having exclusive use of a building, rather than shared use of a larger building, is popular with our visiting groups enabling them to set up their own home from home. You can book a single or multiple accommodation buildings to sleep up to 86 people. Our accommodation is available to book during the weekends and school holidays.

    The Lodge - Sleeps 38

    The Lodge sleeps 38 in 9 bedrooms, all named after local edges with a mixture of bunk-beds and single beds. The Lodge has a large separate lounge room for relaxing with 3 sofa's, stools and bean bags. A double door from the dining room leads to the outdoor seating area and large charcoal BBQ (please bring your own charcoal), making eating outside a popular option. There is a separate drying room with heating and an extractor fan and we have a high chair and a travel cot available to use. The Lodge is all on one level and has a separate accessible toilet / shower room, making it suitable for wheelchair users and those with mobility difficulties.

    The Farm House - Sleeps 38

    The Farm House is a characterful Grade 2 listed 19th Century accommodation building with a charming roundhouse and sleeps 38 in 7 bedrooms (but can only seat 36 in the dining room), all named after local caverns and caves, with a mixture of bunk-beds and single beds. A double door from the dining room leads to the patio area that has outdoor seating for 36 and a large charcoal BBQ (please bring your own charcoal), making eating outside a popular option. A small ‘lounge’ area is within the dining room and has 4 comfy seats and a coffee table. We have a high chair and a travel cot available to use.

    Woodlands (Accessible) - Sleeps 10

    Woodlands is an accommodation building with accessible facilities and equipment. It has been designed to cater for groups which include those with additional needs and is located with fantastic views down our fields and into mature woodland overlooking the Sky Ropes and Yurt. It sleeps 10 people, 9 in 2 bedrooms and an additional pull down bed in the lounge. The building is energy efficient with excellent insulation, triple glazing and green energy use in the form of a ground source heating system which provides under floor heating. The kitchen worktops and splash backs are made from recycled materials. The cedar shingle roof and cedar cladding protect the building and look great, a water butt helps us to re-use rain water on the garden.

    Accessible Features and Equipment:

    • Level access throughout, no steps or stairs and wide door ways for wheelchair access (see room plan for widths)
    • A Maxi Sky remote controlled ceiling mounted hoist system (maximum weight 200kg) with a 2 point loop spreader bar (please bring your own slings) which connects the accessible bedroom to the ensuite shower room
