Dog Friendly Luxury Holiday Cottages

Dog-Friendly Cottages in The Peak District

If you want to avoid the doleful eyes of your dog as you leave for a staycation, book yourself a dog-friendly cottage in the Peak District. Britain’s oldest national park. People and dogs alike are biologically written to need exploration and freedom. Without it, they feel cooped up and restless. There’s nothing quite like standing atop a summit, with the swelling of the land below; fields connecting in a patchwork, distant copses dark with the passing of cloud shadows. That feeling of awe looking into the blackness of a clear night’s sky, seeded with stars, is similar. This is what the Peaks are all about. Taking yourself, and your dog, on a dog-friendly holiday in the Peak District is a way of reconnecting with the raw beauty of natural landscapes, and human provenance. We have 2 categories of property that take dogs:

•    Dogs Accepted – does what it says on the tin!
•    Dogs Welcome – goes the extra mile to provide a dog-friendly welcome, including a doggy welcome hamper, dog towels, throws, poo bags etc

A charge may apply – please check individual cottage for details of charges and what is provided.

Perhaps the most iconic spot in the Peak District, and perfect for a dog walk, is Stanage Edge. A gritstone escarpment and plateau, that looks out over miles of moorland and pastures. It was made famous in the BBC’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It feels like you’ve reached the roof of the Peak District; a vantage point for existential pondering, with nothing but the unfolding world below and the transcendental white noise of the wind.

Book yourself a dog friendly cottage in the Peak District and get away from it all. Though, don’t worry, it may be secluded, but it’s not isolated. The Peak District is surrounded by the cultural centres of Manchester, Sheffield, and Leeds. You could be taking in the bright lights of an evening and be back in your snug, luxury holiday cottage by bedtime.

If you and your dog are brave enough, The Peak District is also a haven for wild swimming. A chilly dip, though it may seem silly, is a psychologically rejuvenating experience. Once you’ve tried wild swimming, you may not want to turn back. A well-know location is the moodily named Black Mere Pool, an almost spherical wellspring, high above the quaint town of Leek. Both an eerie and beautiful place depending on the sky’s make up, or on the ingress of swirling fogs. Though without a doubt, an atmospheric place for a picnic and a swim, or perhaps some landscape photography.

Our dog friendly cottages in the Peak District come as two types, dogs accepted and dogs welcome. Our dogs welcome cottages go the extra mile to give your dog a special welcome. You’ll find an exciting doggy welcome hamper with some useful items for your dog friendly holiday in the Peak District, such as dog toys and towels, and waste bags.
