More about Wheeldon Trees Farm Holiday Cottages
loved the cottage Sheldon
This is the best holiday we have had with our dogs in the last two years. The cottages are fantastic and the dogs love the old railway trail where we could let them off the lead. There are so many homely touches that make this place such a gem. The location and views from the cottages are wonderful and relaxing- just the sort of place if you don't want to go anywhere but relax and unwind. Of course if you want to travel out it is within driving distance of so many wonderful tourist attractions. We just loved to rest and read and chill out in our cottage - when it was sunny we sat outside in the comfortable chairs on the enclosed patio - no fear of the dogs getting out! There are two fantastic pubs nearby that sell good food so when we werent in the mood for cooking we spent the evening there. Sheldon is a special cottage and my parents, who are now in their seventies, really appreciated it all being on one floor. It even has a fabulous wet room. Most of all I appreciate how much trouble the owners Deborah and Martin have taken to make it an eco friendly place - there are so many aspects they have considered when renovating the cottages - the green credentials are well deserved. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday, especially for pet owners.
Can't wait to go back.
Had decided to go to the peak district for a joint birthday celebration. We were looking for somewhere we could totally relax after our days out walking and found exactly what we were looking for at Wheeldon trees farm cottages. The cottage we stayed in was perfect, we couldn't have wished for cosier accommodation. Will definately be returning and have recommended to all my friends.
A great place to stay
Wheeldon Trees is such a great place to stay. Martin and Deborah are lovely hosts, welcoming and helpful; the cottages have charm, are comfortable and well equiped. We stayed as a family and the children loved the freedom to run around, climb the hill next door, help with the chickens and play in the games room.
It meant some days we didn't need to go out, on others we went off on our bikes or for a walk. We also took trips to Carsington Water and Chatsworth nearby and easy to get to. So there was lots to do.
We also liked the little things that made our holiday so easy - like having good food available from the freezer when we couldn't face cooking and being able to borrow a mobile phone to make calls when we were out of range for our signal. All in all we're hooked. We'll see you next year (or maybe sooner).
3 day weekend break in november
Have just returned from a 3 day weekend break at wheeldon farm cottages with a group of friends,the accomodation is of a very high standard ,the bed was so comfortable!!and the owners very welcoming and helpful.Stunning views of the surrounding countryside,would reccommend wheeldon trees to anyone looking for a relaxing break,would definetly go again and stay in any of the cottages.
Wonderful accommodation in fantastic location
We have just returned from a week long visit to Wheeldon Trees Farm, staying in the largest cottage, Nadin as we were a party of 4 adults and 1 child. The cottage was wonderful, we had plenty of room, comfortable beds and a very well equipped kitchen. My 3 year old son loved the Games Room, in fact he would have slept in there if it had a bed!
The location is ideal for a tour of The Peak District, nowhere was more than a 30 minute drive away, including Lyme Park, Chatsworth House, Dovedale, Carsington Water, Blue John mines at Castleton and of course, Buxton, Bakewell & Ashbourne.
We would all have no hesitation in recommending Wheeldon Trees Farm as a wonderful place to stay and would certainly return in the future.
We've just enjoyed a five day "fireworks escape" break with our two border terriers in Critchlow cottage. We stayed at Wheeldon Trees farm before in 2006 & it was very good then but Martin & Deborah have really improved all the facilities this year. There has been a great deal of thought and work put into the renovation. New leather settees, memory mattresses, fantastic bathroom fittings together with high quality kitchen equipment including a dishwasher and an expresso coffee maker. The cottage is designed around eco-principles - very warm with a secure rear patio area. Go for it!
Quiet rural retreat in the Peak District
Very well-equipped cottages in a lovely quiet farmyard with free range chickens - but surprisingly accessible from A515. Welcoming and helpful hosts. Games and library with videos, DVDs. Dog and eco friendly.
Close to High Wheeldon National Trust property with several quiet cycling and walking routes on the doorstep. Lots of sight-seeing options - including Buxton, Chatsworth - as well as natural beauty, along the river valleys and on the fells. Several eating places within a few miles.
The location is absolutely amazing. The cottages are gorgeous with traditional features but they have all been done up modernly. They were so cosy and very relaxing. It was spotlessly clean on arrival. Very comfortable place to stay didnt want to leave. The owners were incredibly friendly. Nothing was too much for them. Any questions/queries we ahd they were more than happy to help us. I will definitely be telling friends and family about this place. I had a lovely weekend there.
The nicest self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in
A lovely place to stay. We were made to feel extremely welcome and the standard of the accommodation was excellent. A nice peaceful location yet easy to get to other surrounding locations. I would definitely recommend Wheeldon Trees Farm to others!
Dog freindly, welcoming and comfortable
Stayed for a week in January with 5 Border terriers, in order to combine 2 dog shows at either end of the week (Newark and Stafford) with a few days walking in the Peak District. Have never found such a positive welcome for ourselves and our dogs, combined with comfortable, eco-freindly accomodation , all in the ideal location for our requirement. No hesitation in recommending to anyone, will certainly be returning.
