FAMILY FUN IN NADIN COTTAGE
The Smith’s week in the Peaks
With the airports in chaos and the pandemic not too long in the past, a staycation in the Peak District National Park has never looked so inviting.
We chose to take our half term break in the Derbyshire hills, staying at Nadin Cottage which is part of the Wheeldon Trees retreat. All we needed to do was pack our car and head north out of London.
Joining us on our English country cottage adventure were the two little Smiths, Jessica and Emily our six-year-old twins.
The first thing you notice when arriving at Wheeldon Trees is the view. Everyone will tell you about it. I don’t think our London-born children could believe such places exist. It goes on for miles with the local cows bobbing their heads over the stone walls throughout the day. The first thing Mr Smith noticed was the free EV charger – I read somewhere that there’s something called ‘range anxiety’ – the fear of driving an electric car and running out of power without finding somewhere to recharge. No problems at Wheeldon. We were set fine for the week!
Wheeldon Trees is brilliant for families. Remember holidays of old when children got plenty of fresh air and played outside? Lucky for us there were several families staying over half-term so lots of people to play with. There’s a brand-new games room packed full of games and puzzles. The main attraction for our girls was the air hockey – even us older Smith’s enjoyed this. Outside there’s a children’s play area plus there’s 12 acres of Peak District National Park to explore.
Nadin Cottage was perfect for us. It sleeps five in total. On the ground floor is the bathroom, double bedroom and single bedroom. Upstairs there’s open plan living (perfect for a family holiday) and on the mezzanine floor there’s a further bedroom with two single beds.
So how did we fill our week? Here’s a run-down.
Chatsworth Woodland Playground
You can’t come to the Peaks and not visit Chatsworth. While I wanted to imagine Darcy exiting a lake, my children were obviously more interested in the woodland playground, which provided hours of entertainment. There’s a giant rope park, climbing walls, zip wire and swings to burn off their energy. In addition, there’s an Archimedes screw to fetch water from the stream, as well as a huge sand play area.
They say that Wheeldon Trees has one of the best views in the Peak District and we would whole heartedly agree. The views go on for miles. Inside the cottages are some handy walks directly from your cottage door and we enjoyed several of these. A favourite was the one that takes you to the local pub – The Packhorse!
Open air swimming in a Peak District Village? Bring it on! Tickets go on sale to non-members of Hathersage Pool on Friday mornings at 7am for sessions taking place the following week. Knowing we wanted to take the girls to Hathersage we booked ahead. For a village with a population of less than 2,000 the 100-foot public swimming pool is a dream. The water is heated to 82°F (28°c) and there’s hot poolside showers, lawns and views of Stanage Edge, Hathersage Church and the surrounding hills to enjoy. What’s not to love?
Heights Of Abraham
Guests at Wheeldon Trees can get discounted entrance to the Heights of Abraham. Armed with our 20% discount we travelled to the award-winning hilltop park attraction. Our experience began with a cable car ride from Matlock Bath taking us high across the valley to the top of the Heights of Abraham. It ended with coffee and cake. A pretty much perfect end to our holiday.
