Award-winning destination demonstrates how to stay ahead of the competition
An award-winning holiday venue, that prides itself on being the leader that others follow, has raised the bar with its latest refurbishment.
Hoe Grange Holidays in the scenic Peak District is a Rural Tourism Champion of Champions, and prides itself on offering holiday cabins for everyone.- able, disabled, with pets, without pets- you can even take your horse!
It has purpose-designed its layouts in the log cabins to reflect its inclusivity. “We don’t have separate cabins for able and disabled guests, we design them so that anyone can use them, and enjoy their stay in a stylish setting,” explains owner David Brown.
Thus, in refurbishing its 4* gold rated Hipley lodge, David has chosen to upgrade the en-suite wetroom to include a Closomat Palma Vita wash dry/ shower toilet, and order alongside integrated support arms, an infra-red remote control operating switch and compatible shower chair.
The new WC compliments additional, discreet accessibility features within such as contrasting colours, wheelchair-wide doors, level access throughout, ramped access, mobile hoist, height-adjustable washbasins, vibrating alarms, and subtitled TV.
“We provide the best possible accessible facilitis and are continually looking to improve. We chose the Closomat for its reputation, looks and enhanced functionality: it looks smart, not institutional, and anyone can use it, whether or not they are disabled,” says David. “We asked via social media if it was a fixture guests would appreciate and got an overwhelming, positive response. We did chuckle, as a similar venue posted within a few days that it was going to install one too: where we lead, others follow!”
