What Wins in the Access For All category?

By Fred Mawer at the Daily Mail:

Hoe Grange Holidays offers four stylishly furnished log cabins on an idyllic-looking working farm. On arrival, visitors are given a welcome pack that includes locally made biscuits and eggs from the hens of owners David and Felicity Brown. There are mountain and electric bikes for hire at the site near Matlock, Derbyshire, you can wallow in an outdoor hot-tub and there are stables so you even bring your own horse along.

In short, for anyone looking for a self-catering break in the Peak District, the farm is a very appealing option. But if you, or someone in your family, is disabled in any way, it's unbeatable.

England Awards For Excellence. To see why it was chosen, I visited the farm.
