A PEAK District tourism business has been awarded a national gold award.

Hoe Grange Holidays, in Brassington, run by David and Felicity Brown, have picked up the accolade in the Access for All category at the National Enjoy England Excellence Awards finals.

Judges of the prestigious ‘tourism Oscars’ were impressed by the range of accessible specialist equipment, including a mobile hoist and electric profile beds and the flexibility of the furniture to suit guests needs.

Felicity said: “Guests love the easy access and contemporary ‘home from home’ feel of our cabins. I believe that this together with our emphasis on quality, and being actively environmentally friendly is the reason why so many guests return.”

David added: “We are extremely proud to have won the Access for All category, particularly as we are a small family run business competing against some multi million pound enterprises.”
