WHEELDON TREES FARM

Comfort & Service

Martin and Deborah welcome you to Wheeldon Trees Farm

We feel very privileged to live in the beautiful Peak District and look forward to welcoming you to this glorious corner of England.

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.

Hooray. The lambs have names ! Firstly we want to say a very big thank you to all of you. We were overwhelmed by the number of posts and had a wonderful time looking at your varied and interesting suggestions. After much discussion (and I mean much) we've settled on: BUZZ AND WOODY !

😀👏 Congratulations to Rafael Kilim the winner of the short break at Wheeldon Trees Farm ! Well done you Rafael. We're especially pleased for you as you've told us you've never won a competition before and we're looking forward to welcoming you to Wheeldon Trees... 💥🌟

AND... if you were one of the six people who suggested the name combination of 'Buzz & Woody' we're going to send you a consolation prize of some toiletries made by local business Coconut Blush. We'll be in touch soon...

We have chosen the winner by randomly selecting one of the 338 posts that we received. As per the Facebook rules we are now waiting to hear back from them...!

Last day to suggest names for our lovely lambies....!

And if you're passing please feel free to pop in and say hi to Buzz and Woody !!!

Our first visit in two weeks time! Can't wait 🙂 I showed this picture to my one year old son and he pointed to his Woody doll, whilst watching Fireman Sam. So we're going for Woody and Sam 🙂

We love our stay with you 2 years ago, Alex and Millie still talk about it! We're currently on a roadtrip round Europe and have Visited Haarlem (NL) and are now in Frankfurt, so their suggestion is Harley and Frankie!

Aww how cute are these 2?! I think as they have the same haircut as our current pm you should call one Boris and the other johnson. Or maybe Boris and Donald? 😂

I’m voting for Wallis (Valais in German) and Grommit 😃 I know it’s not the exact matching spellings but I think pretty fun! Would absolutely love to treat my little boy, his name is Jacob so also named after a type of sheep 😍😃 he loves exploring too! What about you Sue Gibson? Xx

I think Apollo and Artemis, after the first moon landing 50 years ago and the current moon project! 🐑 It's in keeping with the A theme started by your alpacas too! 🦙

I suggest Peak & District 🐑 I hope Albert is behaving! Love from Dylan 🦙🦙🦙

Wheeldon Trees is a very special place to Fudge - it was the first holiday he had ever been on, even when we adopted him at the age of 4. He is now almost 12, and thinks that the names should reflect how happy being at Wheeldon Trees makes him. So Asher (of Jewish origin, meaning happy or fortunate) and Gale (of Irish origin - just like Fudge - meaning happy and cheerful).

In honour of my two aunties - brandy and sherry. ( They had cats with those names) 😀

Mop and Bucket! 😊 gorgeous place - missed it this year.

Following the anniversary of the moon landing theme:- Apollo and Columbia 🌝

Jeeves and Wooster - this suggests a VALET (see what I done there?) and an upper class animal

Solomon (after Solomon’s Temple) and Jacob (after Jacobs Ladder). We love Wheeldon Trees, my husband and I have been many times on our own but have yet to take the children so this would be a fabulous prize 😊

Armstrong and Aldrin. To commemorate Apollo 11 as Wheeldon Trees, too, reaches for the stars! 💫 🌟

I'd go with bud and Chesney my Grandad loved Flanagan and Allan and taught me to sing all there songs and well it's different.....

I love the names Oreo and Domino 😍😍😍

Buzz and Neil as it’s 50 years since the first moon landing. We love Wheeldon Trees 🌳. X

Hello handsome boys 😍Humbug and Zeb ( zebra ) x

Tony and Luke after the naughty but lovely Tour de France riders disqualified yesterday.

Oh my you have Valais Black-Nose! I love them.. Holmes and Watson
