    car free days out

Guests our wowed by the scenery at Hoe Grange Holidays and we are
very aware of the fragile balance of our special Peak District environment.

Our main aim is to ensure you have a fun packed holiday in the Derbyshire hills,
whilst at the same time minimising our impact on the environment and preserving
it for future generations to enjoy.

From recycling, reducing our consumption of single use plastics, to buying local produce and car sharing, there's lots we can all do
to help protect the environment. What about helping a little further by leaving your car parked outside your log cabin
and enjoying one of our car free days out?
