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 with you on holiday?
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 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.
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 dogs are not left outside unattended and we also ask that you bag and bin any dog waste.
