Dodging the horrendous rain this week David has been busy creating a new gateway into the field next to Rainster cabin, which will be used for a third grazing paddock for guests bringing horses on holida. We aim to provide access for everyone and are constantly improving and upgrading our facilities here at Hoe Grange, not just inside the cabins, but also outdoors.

David is once again wheelding the shovel! He has finished rendering the stables for our horse holiday guests, but is now shovelling snow to make sure everyone can reach the front doors of our cosy log cabins ready for their relaxing Christmas holiday.

If you haven't had time to make your Christmas cake yet, don't worry! Try this excellent last minute recipe below:...

David rendering or is he making this weeks Oatie biscuits? Too windy and wet for riding  here in the Peak District today, but there's always an up side! David set to this morning and started rendering the internal walls of the stables. Being an old stone building there were huge cracks and crevices in the walls which made them difficult to clean properly inbetween horse guests. When finished they should be easier to pressure wash thoroughly, keep clean and thus save time. David can now hardly move his arms, but at least it saves going to th...

With having so much time on my hands and so little to do, I thought I'd spend my spare time writing a blog! Everyone seems to be doing it these days so I thought we would give it a try. My husband David and I run a working farm in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales with 2 luxurious self-catering log cabins for holidays in the specatular countryside. The cabins can accommodate up to 14 guests and are ideal for family groups, college reunions, hen parties or smaller groups simply seeking some peace and tranquility. We are keen to make our holida...
