Browse through our blog posts to find out what life is like at Hoe Grange Holidays along with some great ideas for days out in the Peak District.
Have you ever considered cycling holidays in the Peak District?
During Covid-19 lockdown many of us have had more time to exercise. This week is national Bike Week and a great opportunity to get your bicycle out the shed and dust off the cobwebs! #BikeWeekUK
Cycling is a fantastic way to keep fit and active. Cycling is a good cardio workout with less strain on your knees than running, and you can travel further afield to enjoy the countryside. Getting outdoors in the sunshine boosts your vitamin D levels and is great for your mental well-being.
If you’ve been inspired to get back on your bike why not consider a cycling holiday in the Peak District?
Our cycle friendly, luxury log cabins and gorgeous glamping pods are an ideal base for cyclists of all abilities. You can take life in the slow lane and enjoy our spectacular Peak District countryside views as you pedal along. For cycling routes and ideas check out our cycling page.
Are you a regular cyclist? Is your bicycle valuable?
If so, our cycle friendly holiday accommodation is ideal. We have a spacious, secure cycle shelter, as well as a maintenance stand and wash down facilities. We provide a selection of route maps for both short and long bicycle rides, and there are plenty of off-road trails and routes from the doorstep.
We have bike rides for all ages and abilities, whether you want a casual bike ride along the many traffic-free trails or more of a challenge along the rugged off-road bumpy tracks.
Hoe Grange is ideal for family cycling holidays as you can access the High Peak Trial directly from the farm. There is no traffic and the trail is relatively flat, so it’s perfect for little ones. Pack up your own picnic and stop off to have some family fun and enjoy the panoramic views.
If you’ve only got room to bring the children’s bikes on holiday you can borrow our two adult mountain bikes free of charge when you arrive.
For longer leisure rides there are circular routes, including Carsington Water and our Hoe Grange Cycles, Cafes and Castles cycle route, along quiet country lanes and through quaint villages.
If you are worried about your fitness you can take things at a more leisurely pace and hire our electric bicycles to whizz up the hills. Check out our map of places to cycle to and where to stop off on route.
It’s always good to try something you have never done before, so for a bit of fun why not hire our tandem bike? It will certainly test your co-ordination and relationship!
If you are a regular, long distance cyclist and want more of a challenge the Peak District offers some iconic road cycling routes with steep inclines. Once at the top you can catch your breath and admire the stunning views.
There are plenty of more extreme tracks for avid mountain cyclists. The Peak District offers some off the beaten track, rugged routes to really test your fitness and stamina. After a long hard days bike riding you can relax in our log-fired hot tub to ease any aching muscles!
To get the best experience and make the most of your time, why not take a guided tour? For something a little different you can go retro with a road bike tour with Glory Days on vintage bicycles. If you want a more challenging mountain bike experience opt for MTB&B
These guide teams have done the hard work for you and know all the best places. They have researched, tested and considered every aspect of your adventure so your day is packed with epic scenery, delicious local food and fantastic company.
As we are currently all social distancing you can join in the #BikeWeekUK events online. You can also be a cycling hero and take up the challenges. Don't forget to share your cycling using #7DaysOfCycling
