Disabled Access Day is going from strength to strength in its third year.
For the first two years, we were encouraged to visit somewhere or do something we hadn’t done before, but it was a bit limiting because it was only on one specific day.
This year, Disabled Access Day was spread over three days meaning there was more opportunity for everyone to join in.
Also, by extending the Disabled Access Day period, more organisations, businesses, and vendors could participate.
Last year, we spent Disabled Access Day at Hannahs in Dartmoor; this year, mainly due to poor health, we hadn’t planned anything.
But, as luck would have it, a chance conversation with Felicity from Hoe Grange Holidays resulted in us heading to the Peak District for a relaxing break and checking out their award-winning accessible cottages and camping pods.
I will be writing a full review of our time at Hoe Grange Holidays in the coming weeks, but I couldn’t wait to share what we got up to on Disabled Access Day, so here are a few pictures from the weekend – enjoy!
Disabled Access Day 2017
This little fellow was quite upset he wasn’t joining us for the weekend.
We were greeted at Hoe Grange with homemade cakes and biscuits, and take my word for it – they were scrumptious!!
We said hello to our home for the weekend – I know, we are so lucky…
I toyed with the idea of taking a Disabled Access Day dip – but bottled out because it was a bit parky.
I had to decorate my Hoe Grange with free-range fresh eggs – also scrumptious!!
Even the horses got in on the act… and yes, you can take your horse to Hoe Grange Holidays.
Thanks to Felicity and David for a great weekend; we’ll be back soon.
