About

Say hello to Wheeldon Trees Cottages. A beautiful retreat of 10 luxury cottages nestled in one of the Peak District's most stunning valleys.​​​​​​

Wheeldon Trees comprises 10 beautiful cottages set in 12 acres of Peak District National Park. Close to Buxton and Bakewell we offer a welcome tote packed full of locally-sourced treats, beds which give you the sweetest of dreams and the highest of thread counts and a breath-taking space with space to breathe.

Award-winning Wheeldon Trees is a year-round holiday destination in the heart of England. Ideal for couples, families and friends, the 10 cottages sleep 38 people in total and are a brilliant base for cyclists, walkers or people simply looking to explore our beautiful National Park.

Nine cottages have superfast wifi, an open plan living, dining and kitchen area with underfloor heating and a private patio. White Company toiletries can be found in each contemporary bathroom. A laundry room, honesty shop, free electric vehicle charging and electric bike hire are all yours to enjoy. A communal room has toys, games and books to borrow and there's a children's adventure playground for little ones. 

New for 2022 is the Farmhouse. The fabulous Farmhouse has three bedrooms - one with ensuite, a farmhouse kitchen, lounge with wood-burning stove, snug and reading room. Outside there is a luxurious wood-burning hot tub.

There are three dog-friendly cottages - Critchlow, Ollerenshaw and Lomas.
