Together with our managers, Nigel and Karen, and all our team we’ll ensure you have everything you need to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. When you leave, we want you to feel relaxed, invigorated and ready to face life’s everyday challenges.
First and foremost, you’ll find sparklingly clean and comfortable accommodation so that you feel ‘at home’ from the moment you arrive. Thanks to countless suggestions from our guests, we think we’ve included pretty well everything you might want – and some things you didn’t even know you needed !
If you prefer to take the ‘self’ out of ‘self-catering’, order a Derbyshire Breakfast Basket or select pre-prepared meals from our extensively stocked freezer – we make most things ourselves, from lasagna to sticky toffee pudding. We even bake our bread, churn our butter and roast our coffee. What we can’t produce, we procure from local businesses.
Because we live on site in the old farmhouse, we’re on hand to greet you on arrival and to offer help, information, suggestions, or just that drop of olive oil you’ve forgotten. Shut the door of your cottage and you’ll feel cosy and quiet away from the rest of the world.
We remember ourselves that being away from home with children can be stressful – but you’ll be able to fully relax when you’re here. We’ve got indoor and outdoor play areas, toys galore and a wide range of baby and toddler equipment to borrow (which means you can leave the kitchen sink at home).
Children young and old are invited to join us every morning for farmyard feeding. We’ll introduce you to our chickens, ducks, rabbits and our ‘pack of Als’. Each year, we hand raise our own lambs so, depending on the time of your visit, we might need you to help with bottle feeding and general cuddling…
For those of you bringing dogs, we want our two and four legged guests to have an equally memorable time. The cottages are designed to be practical and relaxing, with enclosed patio areas and a dedicated dog exercise area. You’ll be able to borrow everything from dog tags to dog towels – we’ve even got a dog hairdryer if you want to have a go at some fancy grooming…
Since arriving at Wheeldon Trees Farm in 2007, we’ve focused on creating a home and business where we could practice our ideals for living and working with a minimal impact on the environment. Although we’re committed to raising awareness of sustainability issues (and how you can help), we won’t let this get in the way of you having a brilliant time…
We encourage you to make maximum use of your legs and minimum use of your cars and it’s brilliant seeing our guests heading out into the stunning surroundings, enjoying the wide range of activities and varied locations the Peak District has to offer.
Whether you’re coming on your own, as a couple, with children (young or old), dogs, family or friends, we’re here to help you make the most of your stay.
