Disabled holidays in our log cabins
If you are looking for disabled holidays, all four of our cosy log cabins have level thresholds throughout and are rated under the National Accessible Scheme, giving you the confidence to book with us.
Hipley, Rainster and Daisybank log cabins all have two bedrooms, sleeping up to 4 guests, and are wheelchair friendly with a spacious accessible layout. They have walk in wet room showers with grab rails, achieving NAS Mobility Level 2 and Level 3 Assisted.
For those with hearing loss or partial sight these 3 lodges are also rated Hearing Level 1 and Visual Level 1.
Our larger Pinder cabin has three bedrooms, with a standard family bathroom and is rated NAS Mobility Level 1, ideal for more mobile, active guests.
Good quality disabled holidays can be hard to find, but at Hoe Grange Holidays we have given careful thought and consideration to providing easy access and excellent facilities for guests with limited mobility or additional needs.

Check out our wet room showers…
Access to the Hipley and Daisybank cabins is well provided for by wide gently sloping ramps, complete with sturdy handrails. To make things easy all the thresholds are level.
Rainster has easy access from your parking space, which is on level ground within a few meters of the lodge. There is plenty of outside lighting for those dark winter nights.
Hipley, Rainster and Daisybank all have two bedrooms. They are wheelchair friendly, with wide doorways and a spacious accessible layout that can easily accommodate up to two wheelchair users at a time.
Take a look at the floor plans for each of our lodges:
Fully accessible shower rooms
The shower rooms are easily accessible from the twin bedroom and have been designed as wheel-in wet rooms, with hand support rails, plenty of transfer space, and an adjustable shower head with thermostatic control. All taps are level operated, and there is a choice of mobile shower chairs available should you need one. There are drop down support bars on both sides of the toilet.
Daisybank and Rainster also have Pressalit Care adjustable wash basins, which can be raised in height and can be moved away from the toilet allowing space for carers to give assistance from either side.
Electric profile beds & mobile hoist
In the twin bedroom in these 3 cabins there is one single electric profile bed, with sufficient clear space under the bed to allow for the use of a mobile hoist, which you can book free of charge. Rainster has a Volker profile bed which is height adjustable and has pull up cot sides.
There is a high back, high seated comfortable armchair, or if you need extra assistance getting to your feet you can book a rise and recline armchair.
Great attention has been given to detail, to aid the less able guest without compromising on style. We provide specially designed wardrobes with shelving and lower clothes rails, light switches within easy reach, and doors that don’t get in the way. The kitchen has good low-level storage space, and you can easily reach all the appliances from a wheelchair.
We welcome assistance dogs free of charge, and there is ample room for them to walk and exercise, so that they too can have a holiday. Check out our map of dog friendly places.
Partially sighted or blind
The cabins are suited for the Blind as they are spacious with level thresholds throughout. For holiday guests with partial eye sight, the door frames and skirting boards, door handles, and hand rails are of contrasting colours.
To aid vision there is a good level of lighting throughout; there is a bright reading lamp in the lounge, and touch lamps in the bedrooms.
Hipley, Rainster and Daisybank are NAS rated Visual Level 1.
Hard of hearing
For guests who are hard of hearing or deaf, our televisions have subtitle facilities, and the alarm clocks have flashing lights and vibrating modes. You can book a portable flashing/vibrating fire alarm which can be used in any of the cabins.
The portable induction hearing loop can easily be used in any of our self catering log cabins.
The easy-to-use, rechargeable, portable loop system enables people with a hearing aid with a T setting to hear more clearly, without annoying background noises. This means they can listen to television independently of the volume control on the TV so as not to disturb others.
Hipley, Rainster and Daisybank are NAS rated Hearing Level 1.
We offer a wide range of extra equipment to make your stay as hassle-free as possible. Please take a look at all the extra disabled equipment you can book for your holiday.
Why choose Hoe Grange over other wheelchair accessible cottages?
Our cosy cabins have been designed with access in mind from the very beginning. A wheelchair friendly cottage is often an older building adapted for wheelchair access, with the limitations of the original design dictating floor levels and door widths.
On the other hand, our wheelchair accessible lodges benefit from modern design techniques, with all the features you would expect from any disabled holiday cottage. Enjoy not only the necessary features, but tons of space and even floors, making getting around a piece of cake.
The log cabins are also cosier than a traditional cottage; fully centrally heated with double glazing and all the mod cons that you would expect from quality 4 Star Gold accommodation, including LCD TV, DVD, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. And they’re not only impressive on the inside. The cabins are situated in a wonderful setting, looking out over the striking limestone rocks and the undulating farm fields of the Peak District.
