Both of our cottages are dog friendly Peak District cottages. As dog owners ourselves, we know how hard it can be to find the right accommodation for all the family. Your dog is one of the family after all so why not take him or her with you on holiday?
We accept one or two dogs at no additional charge. If you have three or more dogs we do make a small additional charge.
There are plenty of walks from the door of either cottage which are suitable for letting your dog stretch its legs. With open fields surrounding the cottages and the local Ordnance Survey map (provided in the cottage) in your hand, there is every reason to get out and explore. Please be considerate if there is livestock in the fields, particularly at lambing and nesting time. The Tissington Trail and Monsal Trail are two of several popular walking routes that get you away from the fields or open moorland if that’s what you would prefer.
Dog friendly places to visit
We have a directory of dog friendly attactions at the bottom of the page but it’s good to know that Chatsworth welcomes well behaved dogs on a lead (the House and Farmyard excepted) as does many of the cafes, pubs and shops in Bakewell and Buxton
For other ideas and resources do visit this dog friendly guide to the Peak District (but it would be great if you came back here to book your accommodation!)
The cottages are ideally suited for a couple or families or you could take both cottages for a slightly larger group. Both have wood burning stoves, underfloor heating and free WiFi.
We have dog friendly floors and rugs and provide throws for the furniture (as we know a lot of pets like to snuggle up with their owners on the sofa!). We hope that you’ll all feel right at home.
The large open garden, although not totally enclosed, is set back some distance from the road. It’s a great area to throw a ball or toy for your dog so that they can burn off those last ounces of energy.
The garden is shared so we ask that you do not leave your dog outside unattended. Please also bag and bin any dog waste.
