Pets in the Peak District
Covering an area of 542 square miles, the Peak District is a place of stunning beauty and it’s the ideal place to visit for a walking holiday with your dog. From the higher Dark Peaks to the more gentle White Peaks, you can be sure that the rolling hills, expansive moorland and steep climbs will offer adventurous walks and stunning scenery for you and your canine companion.
No one likes to leave their pet behind when they go on holiday, especially if it’s a dog, and with a great selection of pet friendly Peak District bed and breakfasts and cottages, you can easily take your dog on holiday with you.
The Peaks is a pet friendly area and is home to a range of accommodation which welcomes dogs – from self catering cottages and B&Bs, to luxury hotels such as the Izaak Walton in Dovedale which offers superb accommodation in a beautiful part of the Peak District. Most places will require you to notify them in advance that you will be bringing a pet and they’ll often want to know the number of dogs you’re bringing and the breed of dogs, in case they are a particularly large breed.
Not only is there a generous selection of dog friendly accommodation in the Peaks but there is also a large amount of inns, restaurants and pubs in the Peak District which welcome dogs so all the family can enjoy a meal and drinks together after a long day walking. The Bell Inn in Cromford, The Old Nags Head in Edale and the Little John Inn in Hathersage are just a few of the many award winning pubs in the Peaks which welcome dogs and provide a place for you to enjoy some excellent local produce and some great ales with your pet.
If you’re looking for a place to visit with your dog for a short break then you can’t find a better location than the outstanding Peak District National Park.
