Hall of Fame for magic places to stay
Today’s story is a just one to swell your heart. It is a tale of two magic indie businesses who are consistently and fabulously creating top experiences for their guests and who have both won a prestigious award from Trip Advisor. They have both been added to Trip Advisor’s Hall of Fame for receiving an Excellence Award for 5 years in a row.
What we all want from a place to stay in the UK is a real personality, a human connection and owners who truly give a monkeys about our stay. We want the obvious amazing service but we want to be individual too. Both Felicity from Hoe Grange Holidays in the Peak District and Alison from The Warren B&B near Alton Towers do this is spades.
Both are passionate about their guest’s experience and take great steps to ensure that their stays are memorable and special. This includes personalised welcomes and a common theme of home made breads, welcome packs and a feeling that everything has been thought of.
Hoe Grange Holidays offer award winning, 4 star log cabins in the grounds of their farm in a stunning location in Derbyshire. Felicity specialises in providing accessible cabins to suit all guests, even those with the most severe of needs. You can bring your own horse on holiday to make the most of some of the best hacks around and best of all, the whole business is sustainable and committed to their eco credentials.
The Warren B&B is located near Alton Towers with stunning views across the valley. Alison and all her family take great care to cater for all their guests individually to provide a real home from home experience. They specialise in home baking and provide breakfasts for all diets including dairy and gluten free and vegan. The kids even run a tuck shop in the hall for holidays treats.
What both of these businesses have gained is a loyal following of guests who want to return again and again – they have built strong relationships as a result of their dedication and passion….something that indie business owners are so brilliant at.
Huge congratulations from all of us at Simply HQ – we LOVE what you do!
