BFB's Overview

A fab find for getting away from it all or group get togethers, Wheeldon Trees Farm is an award-winning cluster of nine tastefully converted and beautifully maintained farm buildings and cottages nestling in a scenic spot near bustling Bakewell and charming Buxton - pretty much the perfect location for a baby or toddler friendly holiday in the Derbyshire Dales!


Just passing through in 2007, owners Deborah and Martin immediately fell in love with the place and decided to ditch the rat race in London, where they had a successful business, to start a new life in the country. The couple wanted to offer what they value themselves - a great environmentally friendly place to stay with a warm, professional welcome. Within months, the work was underway to renovate seven cottages and create 2 new ones, installing a ground source heat pump and providing extensive recycling facilities (for those post celebration moments!). A new games room / communal dining room was also created and is now a major bonus for groups since it can host up to 30 guests as a communal dining room with a well equipped kitchen and loo. When not being used for group celebrations, The Long Room is a superb space for families on damp Derbyshire days, as it’s set out with a pool table, table football, board games, puzzles, books, DVD’s and maps.


When it comes to the cottages themselves, Deborah and Martin have achieved a lovely balance of traditional features and contemporary home from home comfort. Exposed stone walls and timber-framed ceilings give a rustic feel to the cottages and underfloor heating keeps the smooth tiled floors toasty underfoot. Big leather sofas are the place to flop after a day on the fells and the cottages have added luxury in the form of flat screen TV’s, DVD players, IPod docks and complimentary Wi-Fi. Open plan living, dining, kitchen spaces make keeping an eye on babies and toddlers that bit easier, as does all the baby gear that can be provided (see 'Fast Facts'). From the Denby China to a dishwasher and coffee machine, self catering is a pleasure plus a luxury breakfast pack of local goodies can be included. Other little luxuries include constant hot water, sparkling tiled bathrooms, pocket sprung mattresses and foam toppers for really good nights’ sleep. There’s a separate laundry room and all the cottages have patios and access to the outdoor areas where children can play and help feed the chickens and lambs in spring. Plus, a new kids play area is planned for Spring 2012.


Accommodation Overview:

Wheeldon Trees Farm has nine family and pet friendly cottages which each sleep up from 2 to 5 people or the cottages can be booked together for groups of up to 30 people.

Elliot Cottage sleeps 4 or 3 with a cot with one bedroom which can be set up as a King size or two single beds and a second twin bedroom. The modern bathroom has a bath and over bath shower. Outside is a private south facing patio with garden furniture. Please note: It is only possible to accommodate cots in the twin bedroom and then only if a bed per cot is removed.

Location Information

Wheeldon Trees Farm is surrounded by stunning Derbyshire scenery which made Deborah and Martin fall in the love with the place at first sight! It’s ideal for escaping the daily grind, unwinding and re-energising with glorious walks and bike rides from the door. The cottages aren’t completely miles from anywhere either because there are two pubs within walking distance and the spa town of Buxton is only 5 miles. For group gatherings of family and friends, the cottages also have a conveniently central location in the middle of England, smack between the M6 and M1 motorways.

The village of East Sterndale is within strolling distance and a visit to The Quiet Woman pub is well worthwhile – only crisps and pork pies for pub grub but interesting beers and a traditional atmosphere that’s a far cry from soulless gastro pubs and thumping theme bars. A healthy 40 minutes walk up the lane at the back of the cottages, following part of the High Peak Trail, leads to The Royal Oak at Hurdlow where food is available but it’s worth booking in advance.

Renowned for its spa water, Buxton is a thriving market town packed with shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, plus a supermarket. You can even swim in the ‘therapeutically blue’ mineral water at Buxton Spa Swimming Pool, on the edge of the town’s pretty Pavillion Gardens. Also close by (12 miles) is the bustling little ‘capital of the Peak’, Bakewell, most famous for its sinfully sweet and sticky puddings which bear no resemblance to the pre-packed iced imposters with a cherry on top!

Around half an hours drive from Wheeldon Trees Farm, Matlock Bath is an extraordinary little riverside town that’s well worth a visit. Essentially the town runs alongside the Derwent in a steep rugged gorge but there’s a distinctly seaside feel about the whole place, helped by numerous fish and chop shops!

The Derbyshire Dales and Peak District National Park is a mecca for every kind of outdoor pursuit. Besides scary mountain bike trails and soaring peaks to hike or climb, the region is cross crossed with well maintained railway line trails which are perfect for leisurely family cycling and pushchair walks.

For other things to see and do, guests staying at Wheeldon Trees Farm can enjoy discounts and offers at local attractions with a Peak District Privilege Card. Attractions include Peak and Monsal Trail Cycle Hire, the Medieval Manor of Haddon Hall, the Heights of Abraham hill top park, reached by panoramic cable cars above Matlock Bath, Poole’s Cavern and the chocolate making experience at Cocodance in Castleton.
