And they're off on a Sidecar Safari
Sadly this service is no longer available
Last week our guests took advantage of one of Derbyshire's most unique and rather special adventures. Jeff and Jo took to the road with Bill Purvis on a Sidecar Safari.
What better way to access our spectacular Peak District landscape than from a classic Russian motorbike - whether you sit safely in the sidecar or more daringly ride pillion you're guaranteed spectacular 360° views of the countryside.
David was a little disappointed that the impressive military sidecar didn't have a machine gun!
A real Wallace and Gromit thrilling experience, a rollercoaster ride with no safety belts, no airbags, no windows, just the rush of the wind as you pass through the stunning landscape, making you feel alive.
Don't be daunted, as Jeff and Jo found out, Bill takes good care of you and there are plenty of stops along the way for a hot chocolate or a tasty treat. Like us at Hoe Grange Bill is passionate about the Peak District and will incorporate lots of local Derbyshire delicacies , and uncover hidden gems while driving along the back lanes. It couldn't be easier to arrange your very own Sidecar Safari and Bill will pick you up right outside your cabin.

Jeff and Jo certainly made the most of their stay with us:
"We stayed in Daisybank, we loved it, highest spec we have ever had (biggest wet room ever!), we loved the views of spectacular countryside all around, we loved the sheltered patio even with part of it covered from the rain and something we fully indulged in; the extra activities that are there for you if you wish.
A day's hire of the Boma - powerchair crossed with a mountain bike that took me up the mountain behind the cabin and comfortably over every bump and pot hole I could find for 7 miles on the High Peak Trail. We also purchased the fire pit experience. Sitting out til 10 pm in March watching logs burn, drinking mulled wine and toasting marshmallows with melted chocolate are the unique experiences that made our holiday at Hoe Grange so much more special than at other UK locations. Beyond experiences provided by Hoe Grange, all credit to Felicity and David for including details on their website of a whole range of opportunities you might want to have a go at during your holiday. It was on this basis that we discovered what had to be the highlight of our holiday, a 3-hour trip round the local villages with Bill on a motorbike with a sidecar".
We stayed in Skylark, one of the two glamping pods available at Hoe Grange in February 2020.
