After some major procrastination and a brand new website to boot, season 2 of our podcast, 'A Micro Business Life' is finally here.
There's something overwhelmingly petrifying about sharing episodes. I've no idea why, because the conversations are fabulous, but I have to own a minor mental block about my voice and perfectionism problem. However, I have taken a leaf out of my own coaching book and decided that good enough is good enough and that the most important element of each of our episodes is the inspiration that comes from our interviewees.
So here we are, me getting over myself, and sharing episode 1 of season 2. And it's a corker. Felicity & David have been running a micro business from their beautiful farm in Derbyshire for many year and are multi award winning to boot. Their dedication & exceptional service in the accessible holiday sector has been nationally recognised several times over.
Hoe Grange Holidays offers a stunning Peak District experience that has sustainability at its core. With gorgeous views and walks and hacks from the gate, Felicity & David have got the 'delivering memories' thing down to a T. From hot tubs to Pizza ovens, from fully accessible lodges to holidays for your horses, there's really something for many of us.
Our conversation actually took place last summer (yes, a mix of procrastination & a new website to launch!) and since then, Hoe Grange has continued to evolve, most recently achieving 'Autism Friendly' status for 2023.
Hoe Grange started their diversification journey with lodges looking over the hills. They decided early on to provide exceptional accessible holidays now offering a huge range of facilities and equipment to suit a huge range of needs. In addition, they even have an accessible off road 'Boma 7' off road wheelchair to explore the hills with ease.
Over the years, they have added glamping pods and even a Gypsy caravan to their accommodation offer with additional treats to really make a holiday memorable. Always innovating and finding new ways to make holidays more memorable, David & Felicity currently offer hot tub & sauna experiences, 'Dinner to your Door' using local suppliers and deliveries and Spa Experiences for that extra bit of pampering.
We could have talked for hours, but our episode with David & Felicity really is an insight into what life is really like in an ever evolving, family micro business that I'm sire you'll all find a tip, idea or experience that helps you.
