My husband and I wanted a weekend to get away from it all, noisy neighbours, work, etc and Wheeldon Trees Farm was definitely the answer!
We only went for a weekend (one night) away with our 11 month old daughter, but we were still very well looked after. The location and views are perfect to get away from stressfull city life. The cottage (Critchlow) was nice and cosy, with everything we needed and the underfloor heating was bliss, especially as our little one was crawling everywhere.
Since we only stayed for one night we did not use many of the facilities available on the farm, so cannot comment on everything. Our daghter loved the space and the toys in the long room.
Whilst we did not go for any walks I still had a look at the laminated maps in the cottage and if we were staying longer we would definitely have gone on a few of those walks, I really liked that.
The view from the backdoor of our cottage was amazing and it was nice to just stand by the door with our daughter and watch the horses running by and people hiking up to the top of High Wheeldon.
We got exactly what we came for, peace and quiet and a lovely relaxing time. We will go back for a whole week next time.
