Hoe Grange Holidays, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, is an ideal
base for outdoor activities, including walking and cycle touring holidays.

The variety of landscape is vast; from deep-cut limestone dales, such as Dovedale,
Beresford Dale and Lathkill Dale, with their fast flowing rivers and gorges, to the
bleak and beautiful peat-covered moorlands.

Getting outside and active with family and friends is not just invigorating but its also good for your well-being.
