Enjoy a cosy winter break at Hoe Granges’ log cabins in the Derbyshire Peak District. Hoe Grange is the perfect winter spot to experience the best of the Peaks during the winter months. Why not escape the city and take time to enjoy the peaceful Peaks this winter?

Defrost in the steamy hot tub

Hot tubExciting news! To make your stay even more relaxing we have we have recently installed a hot tub on the decking of Daisybank log cabin, so you can take in the beautiful scenery, whilst relaxing in the hot steamy bubbles. Or even better take an evening dip in the dark and view the stars with a bottle of bubbly!  After a bracing winter walk along one of the many local trails or picturesque dales, you'll find our hot tub is the perfect way to round off the day, or you can toast yourself in our log-fired barrel sauna.

Winter break activities

Leawood Pump HouseThere’s lots to do at Hoe Grange, even in the winter months. Imagine crisp winter walks across the Hoe Grange farm fields, a hike along the Limestone Way, or a casual stroll along the Cromford Canal, followed by a cappuccino at the cafe. If you're more interested in wildlife you can enjoy birdwatching at Carsington Water.
And if you’re not the walking type, why not cuddle up in our log cabin, watch the farm animals and take in the views or simply melt away in the hot tub?
We recommend you tickle your taste buds with a trip to one of our fabulous local pubs or restaurants - there's nothing like home cooked pie and chips, or stew and dumplings to warm you through.

frostyfarm2During the winter months the Peak District turns into a winter wonderland, with picturesque views. If it’s snowing in the peaks, the hills and sky turn white and the farm’s sheep camouflage against the snow, it’s truly breath-taking. Have no fear David keeps the farm drive clear with his snow plough and we have sledges so you can have some good old-fashioned fun in the snow - you don't need to be a child, grown ups can join in too!
