About Wheeldon Trees Farm Holiday Cottages

Cottages are tasteful, contemporary, child and dog friendly and with green credentials to boot!

Located in the Peak District National Park, close to the quiet village of Earl Sterndale and ten minutes from Buxton, Wheeldon Farm is ideally situated to explore the beauty and attractions for which the Peak District is renowned.  Comprising nine beautifully renovated self catering holiday cottages, with stunning views of the hills and Upper Dove Valley that will have you reaching for the nearest pair of walking boots!

Converted from an 18th century dairy barn and set within 12 acres of farmland, the cottages can sleep from 2 to a family of 5.  Hiring the nine cottages together can accommodate a party of up to 30 guests. The Long Room, normally set up as a games room, easily converts to a venue for family get-togethers with its own dedicated kitchen and dining facilities.  If sharing the cooking responsibilities sounds too stressful then Wheeldon Farm can arrange catering for you - be it a five course dinner or a special occasion cake.

Hot water and heating comes from the ground source heat pump and the owners have created sophisticated recycling facilities for their guests. So, these cottages are not only child friendly, they are also dog and environmentally friendly too!

The cottages are of a traditional Derbyshire stone built construction with exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, featured stonework and beamed room divisions.  All cottages have been totally renovated to provide a high level of guest comfort. The standards throughout are consistently high, with particular attention to cleanliness, décor and amenities.  One cottage, Sheldon, is all on ground floor level with full wheelchair access and has been awarded M2 mobility grading.

There is a comprehensive range of baby and toddler equipment to borrow during your stay; just ask and it will be waiting for you in your cottage when you arrive.

Delicious breakfast boxes are available which include bread, butter, yogurt, jams and granola all made on site, as well as local honey, cheese and apple juice – they even roast their own coffee !  The on-site shop includes home-made meals in the freezer, yummy ice-creams and other treats, as well as essentials to keep you stocked up during your stay.

Children will enjoy the freedom the farm gives to roam around in a safe environment and enjoy the great outdoors – they’ll love the adventure playground complete with it’s very own gypsy caravan.  Every morning, Deborah takes them (grown-ups are also allowed !) to feed the chickens, ducks, bunnies, lambs and alpacas. There are numerous walks and cycle rides to enjoy direct from your doorstep.

For chilling out at the end of a busy day sight-seeing the games room located in the long room is just the place to relax. There's table tennis and table football and it's also well equipped with books, games and puzzles.

Dogs are welcome at Wheeldon Trees and unlike many other places they don't charge extra !  All cottages have their own small and fenced off rear patio; the tiled floors downstairs are easy to keep clean and there’s plenty of equipment to borrow, including towels for wiping off when you come in from that lovely long walk.

In fact your hosts Martin and Deborah, who are most friendly and welcoming, pay great attention to anything that could help ensure you and your family have the best possible time on holiday.  All-in-all the entire package will be difficult to surpass.

Wheeldon Farm can be found just one mile from the village of Earl Sterndale, six miles from the popular Spa Town of Buxton and eight miles from the bustling market town of Bakewell.
