HF Holidays takes over its 21st hotel

HF Holidays has purchased the lease of the 45-bedroom Peveril of the Peak hotel in the Peak District, taking its portfolio of UK properties up to 21.

Founded in 1913 as a co-operative society, the company specialises in walking and activity holidays and now has 16 hotels in England, three in Wales and two in Scotland.

The Peveril of the Peak in Thorpe, Derbyshire, is the fifth hotel taken over by HF Holidays in the past year, alongside Dolserau Hall and Craflwyn Hall, both in Gwynedd, North Wales; Long Mynd hotel, Church Stretton, Shropshire; and Lulworth Mill House, Lulworth, Dorset.

"The Peak District has consistently been a popular destination for guests and members, and as a result it has been a long-time aim to increase the size of our accommodation in the immediate location," said Fraser Lord, head of hotel operations for HF Hotels.

The company is owned by more than 32,000 members, who each have a shareholding of between £100 and £20,000. Most of its hotels, which have a total value of more than £20m, are wholly-owned, but three - including Carflwyn Hall, Holnicote House in Exmoor, Devon, and Monk Coniston in Cumbria - are leased from the National Trust. The majority of the properties have a four-star guest accommodation rating from VisitEngland.
