About Hoe Grange Holidays

We are situated in Matlock, with the stunning Peak District hills providing the backdrop for our site. Hoe Grange Holidays have many different options available, ranging from self-catering cabins to horse-friendly cabins, and romantic gypsy caravans. Want to find out more about our holiday options and what we can offer you? Simply take a look below.

Self-Catering Holidays

Hoe Grange Holidays are able to give you just about everything you need to have a relaxing yet memorable stay.

We are confident that you’ll love all of the adventures that are just on your doorstep, and that you’ll feel well looked after by our dedicated team. You can take your horse on the bridle paths, or you can even bring your dog to stay with you in your cabin. A lot of the people who stay with us for a self-catering holiday love to visit the stepping stones at Dovedale, and those who want a challenge take themselves to the Dark Peak rocky crags. Even though we have self-catering options available, you’ll never be short of a tasty treat. We offer our own Bakewell Puddings as well as handmade chocolates and Ashbourne gingerbread. By going self-catering, you can have control over where you eat, when you eat and what each day of your vacation is going to consist of. You can put your feet up, go on a hike for miles on end, or simply sample some of the finest baked goods that the Peak District has to offer. Either way, we are confident that when you stay with us once, you’ll be hooked by the stunning views and the charming cabins we have to offer.

Dog-Friendly Log Cabins

If you have a dog, then you may feel as though they are part of the family. So many people who stay with us choose to rent our dog-friendly cabins, as each one gives you access to the High Peak Trail. There is always a lot of room for your dog to play around, and if you want them to bring a friend, you’ll be glad to know that we allow for two dogs per log cabin. When you arrive, you will be greeted by a dog basket that is full of toys and we also have a washing area to clean those muddy paws. We’ll even give you a map, showing you all of the dog-friendly pubs that are nearby. You and your furry friend will be looked after when you come and stay with us.

Horse Riding Holidays

If you have a horse then you will know that there is nothing more picturesque than waking up to see them grazing on the lush green grass, right out of your window. That is why we have made our location horse-friendly, so you can bring them with you when you stay with us. When you stay with us in the Peak District, you will have access to the High Peak Trail and the Pennine Bridleway too. We are close to 250 acres of private farmland, and this gives you room to roam without restriction or limitations. Want to test your horse’s stamina? We can give you riding routes that go over a lot of hills so you can really get them in shape and ready for whatever adventure lies ahead.
