If you are looking for a peaceful holiday in remote and beautiful countryside, this is a great place to find it. Martin and Deborah live in the farmhouse at Wheeldon Trees and there are 8 cottages converted from a large barn. They are the most attentive hosts.. nothing is too much trouble. If your tin opener breaks they will pop over in half an hour with a new one. Their delight in their eco-friendly lifestyle is infectious and inspiring: they encourage cycling, reimburse your bus fare to encourage sustainable transport, and encourage you to feed the hens with your leftovers.
The cottages are small but very comfortably furnished, with good kitchen equipment (including an ecokettle), thick towels and bath toiletries.
Our family (3 boys and us) loved being able to cycle from the door to the excellent Peak District cycle paths, plus lots of excellent pubs and teashops. We hope and plan to go back soon.
