Wheeldon Trees in the top 10% of places to stay in the world
It’s a week of celebrations as TripAdvisor names Wheeldon Trees in the top 10% of places to stay in the world. Yes, the world.
To say we’re astounded is an understatement. Our little luxury retreat has been awarded a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award 2022.
The first thing we need to do is thank all our guests. It was your reviews on TripAdvisor which led to this latest accolade and we cannot thank you enough. We also need to thank Team Wheeldon from Donna our head housekeeper to all our cleaners and maintenance team. All your hard work has led to this.
Every year, TripAdvisor awards travellers’ favourite destinations, hotels, restaurants, and things to do around the world, based on reviews and ratings collected over the past 12 months. The winners are a celebration of everything travellers did last year and all the places they discovered.
Since we purchased Wheeldon Trees in June 2021 there has been an ongoing refurbishment project.
We started in the Farmhouse by taking it back to bricks and rebuilding the interior. New kitchen, new bathrooms and new soft furnishings featuring our own branded Wheeldon Trees wallpaper.
Our next renovation was Priestley Cottage, which sleeps three people. Following this we updated new soft furnishings in every cottage. We also built a luxury office in our grounds for people to use if they are working while with us and refurbished the games room, making it into a more grown-up space where both children and adults can play.
We had a little break in July 2022 to get married (at Wheeldon) before renovating Ollerenshaw, Nadin and Mycock Cottages. Further smaller projects have included the levelling of ground for a marquee should anyone want their own wedding at Wheeldon, updating the honesty shop and manicuring our 12 acres of grounds.
We were rewarded for our work in March 2023 with a silver award by Visit Peak District and Derbyshire in their tourism awards.
This summer you’ll find us mostly outside ensuring our outdoor space is in the best condition possible. We’ve recently added new garden furniture so that more people can enjoy our amazing sunsets.
After the summer, we’ll be starting more renovations. Watch this space for our next adventure.
