In addition to the top-notch facilities, the glamping experience at Hoe Grange is enhanced by the little luxuries that are offered. From a welcome pack that includes home-baked biscuits, bread, and eggs to the availability of adult bikes for exploring the countryside, every detail is thought of.
Exploring the Local Area
The location couldn’t be more ideal for glampers looking to explore the Peak District. The holiday provider’s website highlights a plethora of outdoor activities that guests can partake in.
From walking and cycle touring to more adventurous pursuits like climbing and caving, there’s something for everyone.
The Peak District is renowned for its climbing areas, with challenges available on both gritstone and limestone crags. Beginners can start at Harborough Rocks, just a short distance away, while more experienced climbers might venture to Froggatt Edge or Stanage Edge.
But it’s not just about the adrenaline rush. For those looking to unwind and relax, Hoe Grange Holidays offers a unique hot tub and sauna experience. On their website, guests are encouraged to “be kind to yourself, take time out to relax in the peace and quiet, breathe in the fresh country air and restore your soul.”
The traditional Swedish hot tub, surrounded by soft candle lighting, promises a deep relaxation experience. The log-fired sauna, on the other hand, offers a detoxifying session, leaving guests glowing and rejuvenated.
Moreover, the emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendliness is evident in their operations. The log cabins and glamping pods are designed to have minimal environmental impact, and the use of renewable energy sources further underscores their commitment to preserving the natural beauty of the Peak District.
Guest reviews on their website paint a picture of satisfaction and memorable experiences. One guest mentioned, ”what a lovely weekend away! We stayed in the lovely gypsy caravan, which was a wonderful and really unique experience. We took along our two horses, who also had a fantastic time – so much so, they were reluctant to load into the trailer to come home. I think they wanted to stay!”
Another guest highlighted, “this was amazing, it was our first visit but certainly not our last. Gold standard disability facilities for my husband who has Multiple Sclerosis.”
