We mainly went to Hoe Grange mainly because it has amazing disabled facilities and its a farm and our daughter loves animals so we hoped it would be a lovely break for her and easier for us to manage her. But what a wonderful surprise we got when we arrived. It was beautiful, the cabin are top notch, so clean, so well thought out, every facility you can think of and the internal decor is lovely. So warm and cosy, with the most amazing views.
We arrived later than expected, but Felicity was still there to greet us and show us around. We had fresh bread, milk, butter and home made cakes/flapjack waiting for us. And the usual tea, coffee.
Our little girl immediately snuggled up in her cosy bed and settled down for the night, she had a shower chair provided and a good size wet room, all very useful for us and so well layed out for her wheelchair use, it made me think Id rather live in this than my own house. We had the most restful night, in the biggest and most comfortable bed we've ever slept in (in fact it was so comfy I've asked where I can buy the mattress from!).
The next day we got a knock at the door and Felicity had brough us a sheet of wheelchair accessible local things to do depending on the weather, which was in fact lovely, cold and sunny how we like it. We have never had anyone do that before and I found it very touching.
The whole place is so well organised, thought out and run. There is everything you could need in the kitchen, files of things to do, all the Eco info on the lodges ( which is amazing to read), games to play, books to read, beautiful walks( the pennine way was at the top of the field!) and the animals to see.
We stroked the horses (which were brought up to see our daughter), watched the calves come out for the first time which was hilarious, collected eggs and a great big thank you to the hosts son who went to bring the sheep down for Pip to see, he went to the field shouted, bhah and they all came running, well you should have seen the look on our daughters face.
All in all a lovely break, exactly what we needed, thank you for making it so easy for us.
We'll defiantly be back.
