The upstairs bathroom of Priestley Cottage was totally renovated in 2022 and features a walk-in rain shower. Outside there is a private enclosed patio. As a Wheeldon Trees guest, you’re free to roam throughout our 12 acres of Peak District National Park, making friends with cows and sheep (or enjoying the local pub). If you love walking, you can bag a trig by climbing to the top of High Wheeldon directly from your cottage front door. Guests have access to the entire retreat, including children’s play area and also have free use of our electric bikes to explore neighbouring villages. If you drive electric, you can make use of our onsite EV charging facility. If you’re working while with us, feel free to use our dedicated work space – a luxurious office under the trees with the most amazing views. It’s free to use and has super-fast wifi and a printer.

Pat and John’s long weekend in Priestley cottage

Lucky us! We were one of the first guests to experience the newly renovated Priestley Cottage at Wheeldon Trees.

The cottage has recently undergone a total renovation and we can definitely say it’s one of the most stunning cottages we have stayed in, in Derbyshire.

Total Renovation

In May 2022 Steve and Hazel, Wheeldon Trees’ owners gave Priestley Cottage the same makeover as the newly renovated Farmhouse. This includes new oak flooring, a stunning country cottage kitchen with built in appliances, beautiful voiles and blinds in a rich linen, a gorgeous new bathroom with walk in shower and two very cosy bedrooms.

Nothing has been left to chance and it really felt like a treat to escape to the Peak District to enjoy a few days away.

The Retreat

The first thing you need to know about Wheeldon Trees is that you are getting so much more than just a cosy country cottage. The retreat offers EV charging for electric cars, an honesty shop (try the local ice-cream in the freezer), electric bikes to borrow as you wish, a children’s play area and new for 2022 an updated games room.

Perfect Setting

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!

Days Out

There are lots of Derbyshire attractions close to the cottages. Several of them have discounts for Wheeldon Trees guests. We visited Chatsworth using the tickets and next time we visit we will go to see Haddon Hall using a discounted ticket.

Priestley Cottage definitely provides everything you need for a Peak District weekend. We will definitely be back and will be recommending it to friends.
