Yum... very, very tasty! Yes, it's official, the delicious melt in the mouth Oatie biscuits provided as part of the Hoe Grange Holidays welcome pack are Gold Award winners in the Great Tastes Awards 2009. In fact Sarah Gayton's Oaties topped the list of gold winners with 2 gold stars. The awards organised by The Guild of Fine Foods are a benchmark of top quality speciality food and drink and are the Oscars of the food world. They celebrate passionate people who care about food, and David and I have first hand experience of how passionate S...

It's that time of year again when my wife spends hours putting together our entry for the Enjoy England Excellence Awards. Not only is it a time consuming process, but a very inconvenient one, as  it also means that I have to get my own supper while Felicity taps away at the computer late at night. It's not just answering the questions and creating the entry, the time consuming part is collating all the evidence needed.

love reading the blog and all you are up to - keep up the good work !...

Can you believe it’s raining yet again? Is this really August?  Just been to shut the hens up and guess what  - it’s drizzling again. What do you do when the summer weather is so wet and miserable?

Hoe Grange Holidays is ideally situated on the edge of the fabulous Peak District National Park created 60 years ago when the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act was passed; its aim to ensure our best landscapes and its features were protected, providing generations with access to the great outdoors. As well as stunning views, National Parks are also habitats for diverse wildlife species, impressive geology and often hold special scientific interest. National Parks Week To mark ...

Rubbish or treasure? Everything seems extremely quiet at Hoe Grange after the hectic build up to our dairy sale - it really is quite strange -  I have even made it to school sports day for the first time! The majority of sale items have now been picked up; the last few heifers have left in cattle trailers today, the tractor and feeder wagon have been taken off on low loaders, the milking equipment in the dairy is being dismantled and the scrap lorry has fetched away the large pile of what I considered to be rubbish - but as they say one m...
