Award Winning, Accessible, Eco & Expertise – Hoe Grange Holidays
Small businesses never fail to inspire me. I am always so blown away by the dedication, innovation and passion with which they work but more than that – how much they give back.
Case in point is Hoe Grange Holidays, owned and run by Felicity and David at their stunning farm in the Derbyshire Peak District. You might assume, at first glance, that they offer high quality holiday accommodation in a great spot and that is as far as it goes.
It is when you start to scratch the surface that you discover that what they do is a whole lot more. They have made it their mission to change the face of rural accessible holidays. Instead of erecting some lovely lodges on their land, they made a decision to take a few more steps and make them super accessible and alter the accessible holiday market. Their dedication has now won many national awards and they offer sensory stories, audio descriptions, specialist equipment, adapted wheelchairs for ‘off road’ access to the countryside and so much more.
If these stunning achievements weren’t enough, Felicity and David have always placed the environment at the heart of their business. Working with a wide range of local suppliers and building sustainability into every aspect of their holidays, their guest’s enjoy their holidays confident that their impact is a positive one.
So why write this story now? Well Felicity and David have had a busy Summer, the highlight of which was to be panel members for the Rural Business Awards Group alongside Jules Hudson (of BBC’s Escape to the Country fame) at Countryfile Live. As repeated winners of this award themselves, they were able to share their experiences and knowledge around rural broadband, marketing, communication, networking for isolated businesses and more.
On top of all that, they have just launched their new website! Check out their Cabins, Clamping Pods, Gypsy Caravan, Spa offer, local Food & Drink, Hot Tub and more – with beautiful images courtesy of Matthew Owen Photography – fellow Simply Great Britain Member.
Please note, we are not a booking agent for our Simply Great Britain members who offer holidays because we believe that booking direct is best. You get the best prices, make a connection with the owners and will enjoy a much better experience.
