Are you a dog owner planning your next holiday or short break?  Don't leave your best friend at home or pay for expensive kennels!

 

We love having dogs come to stay at our holiday cottages, and we welcome up to five well-behaved dogs at any one time. 

 

Our four-legged visitors love the walks from the doors of the cottages, along the river Dove, and walking on the traffic free Monsal Trail are just a couple of the highlights.  Others include safe and secure gardens with outdoor space, log fires with limitless logs for a cosy sleep after a long walk and lots of local pubs and attractions that are dog friendly.

 

Some of our favourites include the Crich Tramway Museum, which allows dogs on the site and in the trams and there are lovely walks such as the Woodland walk. 

 

Or Peveril Castle above the village of Castleton gives stunning views and you and your dog will appreciate visiting this National Trust property as part of the daily dog walk (it is a bit steep!).  Castleton also has dog friendly pubs for much needed refreshments afterwards.

 

How about Chatsworth House, which is great for an outdoors visit with your dog?  Dogs are allowed in the gardens, sculpture areas, maze, waterworks areas and there are dog posts just outside the farm area and restaurant.  Assistance dogs are allowed in the house. 

 

Some of our favourite dog friendly pubs include The Red Lion at Litton (a lovely town with a village green) and The Church Inn at Chelmorton.  And newer additions to the dog friendly pub scene are The Old Dog at Thorpe and with new owners The Angler's Rest in Miller's Dale. All these pubs are ideal for using as a base for walking in the Peak District. Take a look at our dog friendly pub guide for more information.

 

Our holiday cottages in the Peak District will take up to five dogs so if there is a group of you we won't restrict you to one well behaved dog only as many other holiday cottages will do. 

 

We take our own dog on holiday with us to the Peak District, so we want you to enjoy your holiday with your dog too!

A lot of guests bring their dogs to our holiday cottages - we welcome up to five dogs. Our dog travels with us when we visit our cottages and we've got a few tips to help the journey go well for you and your dog.

*  Check your dog is secure in the car, either use a dog seat belt harness or crate.  

*  Make sure the dog crate is big enough for your dog to be able to stand, sit, turn around and lie down.  

*  The dog crate must be secure so that it doesn't slide around in the car.  

*  Remove all hazards from the dog crate and don't leave your dog on the lead when he is crated it could be a strangling hazard.

*  Bring along your dog's favourite blankie and dog toys for the journey.  Something familiar will make them feel safer.  

*  Take some water, a dog bowl, and some snacks for your dog.

*  Make regular stops, especially if it is a long car journey.  Take your dog out of the car and let him have a walk on the lead.

*  We've found that our dog is a bit prone to motion sickness so we don't feed him a lot before the journey.  This really helps.  

*  Never leave your dog alone in a parked car, especially when warm, but just don't do it anyway.

*  We also give our dog a really good walk before we start the journey, that way he is more relaxed and does quickly settle down.

We love having dogs come to stay at our holiday cottages, and we welcome up to five at any one time. 

 

Don't take our word for it, take a look at the picture, these are three guests who came to stay at Valley View holiday cottage in August.  They loved the walks along the river Dove, just one of the highlights.  Others include safe and secure gardens with outdoor space, log fires with limitless logs for a cosy sleep after a long walk and lots of local pubs and attractions that are dog friendly.

 

Some of our favourites include the Crich Tramway Museum, which allows dogs on the site, in the trams and there are lovely walks such as the Woodland walk.

A bit of a different blog this week, introducing Julie who paints and draw portraits of dogs, as well as other pets and people.
 
We thought this would be a good link for our dog friendly holiday cottages, so if any of you want to take your dog on holiday and get their portrait done, why not get in touch with Julie?  
 
Working in watercolour and graphite pencil Julie can capture the character of your beloved dog, cat, horses or rabbits!.  All she needs you to do is to send her some good quality photos and she can then discuss which one would work best for your portrait.
 
Please feel free to contact Julie for a no obligation chat, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call her on 07956 393324

There's no reason to leave your four-legged friend at home when going on a  holiday to the Peak District.

 

There are plenty of dog friendly attractions in the Peak District including Crich Tramway Village, which allows dogs on the site, in the trams and there are lovely walks in the grounds including the Woodland walk.

 

Peveril Castle above the village of Castleton gives stunning views and you and your dog will appreciate visiting this National Trust property as part of the daily dog walk (it is a bit steep!).  Castleton also has dog friendly pubs for much needed refreshments afterwards.

 

Chatsworth House is great for a day out with your dog.  Dogs are allowed in the gardens, sculpture areas, maze, waterworks areas and there are dog posts just outside the farm and restaurant.  Assistance dogs are allowed in the house. 

 

Of course one of the delights of being in the Peak District are the walks.  One of our favourite dog friendly walks is The Monsal Trail, which is traffic free for 8 miles with cafes and the dog friendly Stable bar of the  Monsal Head hotel along the route. 

 

Some of our favourite dog friendly pubs include The Red Lion at Litton (a lovely town with a village green) and The Church Inn at Chelmorton.  Both these pubs are ideal for using as a base for walking with your dog in the Peak District. 

 

Our holiday cottages in the Peak District will take up to five dogs so if there is a group of you we won't restrict you to one well behaved dog only, as many other holiday cottages will do. 

 

The holiday cottages are dog friendly with safe enclosed gardens, plenty of walks from the doorstep, with kitchen and hall flooring that is easy to wipe down and clean, lovely log fires (with fire guards) for relaxing next to after long walkies and we also supply out door taps for washing down your dogs and dog bowls. 

 

We take our own dog on holiday with us to the Peak District, so we want you to enjoy your holiday with your dog too!
