Browse through our blog posts to find out what life is like at Hoe Grange Holidays along with some great ideas for hobbies and days out in the Peak District.
The Peak District is steeped in history and as I found out the other evening some of the tales concern ghostly goings on!
It was a beautiful sunny evening as we arrived in the quaint market town of Bakewell for a ghost walk led by local historian Nicky Crewe. Although I have visited Bakewell many times, as it is one of the largest local farmer's markets where we often send our animals , I discovered back street alleyways and courtyards that I was totally unware of, and of course what made it all the more fascinating was the many ghostly tales that were unveiled. It was quite eerie as the sun descended and dusk took over as we entered the churchyard, but fortunately there were no sightings of actual ghosts and we were able to retire to The Castle Inn for a delicious supper.
If you fancy following in my footsteps and trying out the Bakewell Ghost Walk for yourselves then contact Nicky on 01629 815405, who will take groups of 5 or more on a tour through the town centre. Or if you fancy something Spooky there are scores of ‘spooktacular' events set to send shivers down the strongest spine and freak out the whole family during the Peak District autumn festival of fun, Spookyshire, which runs from October 24 to November 1.
