Browse through our blog posts to find out what life is like at Hoe Grange Holidays along with some great ideas for hobbies and days out in the Peak District.
As from previous blog posts you know that at Hoe Grange we #LoveLocal and support other local businesses where ever we can. David and I relish discovering local artisan producers so that as our guests you can enjoy all the Peak District has to offer whilst on your holiday.
#LoveLocal enables our guests to
Our latest #LoveLocal find is Sauced Here – an ethical online shopping service – all the advantages of a supermarket delivery right to your cabin door ready for your self-catering holiday, but all the benefits of locally produced artisan quality goods.
Sauced Here will deliver your groceries in one flexible delivery from carefully selected top purveyors in the area. Luke of Sauced Here has done the hard work sourcing high quality artisan products for you and they have everything covered from the basics such as Bloomers Bakery and Peak District Dairy, to luxury items such as Holdsworth Chocolates and Wee Dram Whiskey.
Everyone deserves to relax and take time out whilst on holiday. If you want to have a break from the kitchen Sauced Here also offers homemade prepared meals, created from locally sourced produce. The meals are delicious and free from artificial preservatives and extra sugar and salt.
The early inspiration for Sauced Here, like all good ideas arose out of need. Luke Osborne went on a self-catering weekend with a group of friends. They booked a cottage in the countryside and organised for an online supermarket delivery for when they arrived.
Luke and friends then spent the next day kicking themselves as they discovered all the amazing shops in the local village and wished they had waited to buy the local produce on offer. The group felt they had missed out due to lack of local knowledge and a need for convenience.
From that day on Luke started to notice how many great local businesses in his home town of Bakewell were closing down and wondered whether they were being passed by for similar reasons. Thus Sauced Here was born, and we are delighted to support this new innovative enterprise.
Luke’s ethos fits in beautifully with our own Eco philosophy. Luke’s mission is to source only the best of the local Peak District area – the best being defined by great taste, traceable origins and products created with passion.
So now you can start shopping for your holiday safe in the knowledge that you are helping to care for the stunning Peak District landscape which you enjoy during your stay at Hoe Grange.
