OUR WOODLAND HOME
We are based at Whistlewood Common, a community-owned 10 acre woodland set in the beautiful National Forest, in South Derbyshire.
A WARM WELCOME AWAITS YOU
Wellbeing at Whistlewood is situated at Whistlewood Common on The Common, between Melbourne and Ticknall. The top entrance is almost directly opposite a business park called Dovesite. Please look out for the sign saying "Melbourne Animal Farm" which is at the top of our drive and will indicate you have nearly reached Whistlewood. When you have located our top entrance please drive/walk down the short drive looking for a gate on your right. That is the main entrance to Whistlewood and the car park is a short drive into the site. Whistlewood is marked on maps if you follow the link below:
The postcode for Whistlewood is DE73 8DH
The number 2 bus service operates between Derby and Swadlincote and stops right next to the site.
For planned events there is free parking on site but please note that at other times the site is closed to cars unless prior arrangement has been made for your visit. There are walk in gates that can access the site which is open to the public for walking. There is a small car park just outside Whistlewood's main gate which is also free to use. .
