Celebrating Success: Hoe Grange Holidays Awarded TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award 2023

August 1, 2023 - Celebrating Success: Hoe Grange Holidays Awarded TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award 2023

TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award 2023

TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Award

When we diversified from milking cows adding self-catering holidays to the farm business in 2006 we had no experience in hospitality and were unsure whether the business would succeed. It was a giant leap of faith.  Having worked only with close family on the farm, David was initially nervous of having guests about, but now delights in talking to guests about modern farming and our stunning Peak District landscape.

17 years on and we are thrilled to announce that Hoe Grange Holidays, has been honoured with the prestigious TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Award 2023, so we must be doing something right!

The TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award is only presented to businesses in the top 10% of all listings on TripAdvisor worldwide! Not just Derbyshire, not just the UK, but worldwide!

So this is an amazing achievement for our little team at Hoe Grange; we want to thank each and every one of you for your outstanding reviews and kind comments which have contributed to this incredible milestone.

However, we couldn’t achieve any of this without you, our wonderful guests!
