Felicity and David are wonderful hosts and highlights, feeding the animals and finding eggs will always be remembered fondly. All of the children have had a wonderful time…… seeing them happy made us happy! We still have so many things we want to do but could not fit in, we will definitely be back, hopefully year on year as the kids grow up.
The cabin is excellent and equipped with everything (including items I forgot!). Felicity, David and family have made us very welcome and we feel very much @ home and relaxed. We are sad to be heading home, but can’t help feeling we’re leaving home! There can be no higher praise – like others we will be back!
Just an Email to thank you both again for our great week. It is, a month on, still very much to the fore of the childrens’ minds. We all enjoyed our stay. I attach a photo of the boys getting eco friendly – sorting the eco bins. Actually it was a good “shot in the arm” as the kids have brought the eco thoughts back with them and I am pleased to support their efforts here at home.
The cabin is beautiful, the veranda is a lovely place to sit of an evening with a glass of wine and admire the views, and drink in the peace and tranquillity. To be able to arrive at self-catering accommodation and not have to think about anything except what to wear and when/where to eat was fantastic. You appeared to have thought of everything to make us feel comfortable from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. Thank you David, Felicity and family for making us feel so welcome. We have already recommended you to friends who want to visit the Peak District and we will continue to do so. We look forward to staying again in the future. Best wishes.
Some people just don’t know how to relax – this group of mountain bikers cycled several 30 and 40K routes straight from the doorstep! Many thanks for great facilities – we go mountain biking every year and this is the BEST accommodation we have stayed in. Thanks for the lift in to Ashbourne on Saturday night.
Your holiday accommodation was absolutely fantastic. We arrived to celebrate Trevor’s 40th birthday and planned on sleeping in, hiking, eating out and relaxing. All of which were done while staying at your lovely, very well equipped and gorgeous location.
Your recommendations of restaurants was bang on, absolutely wonderful and we can’t say enough of your thoughtfulness in arranging a great birthday evening at Carriages. Brilliant!
We would have stolen Twixie, your gorgeous choc lab pup, but figured her puppies will be adorable next time we come! Thanks for such a wonderful time. Your hospitality, well equipped cabins, bonfire, and fresh flowers and bread were such a treat. Looking forward to coming back!
Thanks for providing an excellent base for a family holiday and for being such good hosts. Facilities are fantastic a real “home from home”. Hot tub is a must – a real treat even when it’s -7° or was that the excellent mulled wine! Horses loved their stables and settled straight away. Riding and cycling second to none – a good time had by all – will be back.
A HUGE thank you to David and Felicity for making us so welcome. Savannah enjoyed her 4th birthday and felt so at home she awoke in the middle of the night and pleaded to stay at the farm!
Our horses Zak and Hammish settled really quickly and we enjoyed some lovely hacks along the trail. Thank you to Felicity for taking us out too! The staff at Middleton Top were very friendly and the horses were happy to be tied to a tree whilst we enjoyed a nice hot drink. We are already talking about when we can return!
It was a treat to be able to wake up to the sight of our horses. The hacking was fantastic, and we all had a great weekend. The welcome we received was so friendly – we would like to say a huge thank you and we would recommend Hoe Grange to everyone. Our horses were so chilled out. (They brought 8 horses with them!!)
Perfectly situated for a riding holiday. Hosts were very friendly and approachable – you always felt nothing was too much trouble. Horse facilities excellent and choice of rides varied from a couple of hours to all day. The cabin was clean, comfortable and very well equipped.
On sunny afternoons we took full advantage of sitting with a brew on the veranda watching the horses chill in the paddock. Would definitely recommend Hoe Grange to friends.
To go on holiday as an adult with my own horse and some like minded friends has been my ambition for many years. So I am delighted to report that our recent holiday at Hoe Grange has exceeded all our expectations.
We received a warm, friendly welcome from Felicity and David and our horses settled in as though they had lived there forever. The self-catering cabins were clean, wonderfully well appointed and furnished to a high standard. The whirlpool bath was big enough to get lost in, and a very welcome sight after a hard days riding.
And as for the riding? Well if you enjoy full days in the saddle with miles of off-road riding then this is the holiday for you. Directly from Hoe Grange is access to safe, countryside routes of between two and three hours with no roadwork involved. For the more ambitious rider there are longer circular routes of between six and seven hours, which do involve some short sections of road work, but provide access to stunning countryside and yet more safe, off-road riding.
Well done Hoe Grange, and looking forward to our return visit in September.
We have just booked again for our third Christmas at Hoe Grange. Because a member of our family is disabled, we are extremely grateful to the service that Felicity and David provide with the accessible cabins. Even in this day and age it is extremely difficult to find accommodation of this nature which caters for the less able.
David and Felicity are two of the most warm and welcoming people you could meet and nothing is too much trouble for them (they even take time out
to pay us a visit on Christmas morning when I’m sure they have enough to do preparing their own celebrations!!). We hope to continue to stay at Hoe
Grange year after year and although we have yet to visit in the Summer, we intend to do that in the very near future.
It was so good to find holiday accommodation that had wheelchair access and enough space for the rest of the family, all on one level and of course in such a beautiful setting. We can recommend some fabulous walks for wheelchairs and pushchairs. We hope to return!
A BIG THANK YOU! We’ve had an amazing restful week and will definitely be back. We are all very grateful for the great access you’ve provided and
the homely touches that make all the difference. Jamie had a great time on the tricycle and thanks for ferrying him up and down the hill. Thanks also to Roger Allen – we had an excellent day watercolour painting with him.
Had a fab working holiday with a disabled gentleman. Accommodation had everything we needed a real home from home- spotlessly clean. A very warm welcome from David and Felicity nothing would seem too much trouble.
Just to say a really big thank you for making our holiday very enjoyable. Your cabin is so well equipped for wheelchairs (two of the guests had wheelchairs and there was still plenty of space).
Your hospitality has been second to none and we really cannot thank you enough for helping us with all the “little things”. The cabin is absolutely wonderful and the surroundings so beautiful – we hope to visit again.
