When looking for the perfect dog friendly holidays England has to offer, you really shouldn’t have to look much further than Derbyshire. The Peak District National park itself is a real highlight, though there are plenty of things for you and the family to do without your pets in the region, too. Derbyshire is known as one of the most extraordinary regions for green pastures and countryside walks, and it stands to reason that there are plenty of lovely lodges and cabins for you to rent up here, too.
We’ve hunted down what we think are the best holiday lodges in Derbyshire right now. Whether you want to go somewhere with an all ground floor living area with walks from the door across some of the most spectacular rolling country vistas in the midlands – or if you’re simply looking for a great holiday base to explore some of the more popular family breakaway spots – there’s lots to take in.
The perfect Derbyshire breakaway should be one that feels like a home away from home. You might be looking for something quaint like a flagstone floor, or something as simple as an enclosed garden. The holiday spots and lodges we’ve lined up for you in this list should give you everything you need from your Derbyshire break away.
Your dogs will love the countryside scenes and the quaint village streets. Even Derby city itself is surprisingly laid back in places. However, to really make the most of that pet friendly Derbyshire barn conversion, you’re going to want to get close to the rural reaches.
The county is well known and well loved for its spectacular heritage architecture. Take in Chatsworth House, for example – and Buxton Pavilion Gardens make for a great, laid back family day out, too. You might just want to keep it simple with local sights around the village of Eyam. Even better, get away from it all completely with a holiday lodge right at the edge of the Peak District.
This is a county that’s also famous for its caves and caverns, meaning if you are the adventurous sort, it might be worth booking an excursion or two in the local area!

There’s no longer any need for your dog to miss out on the fun. Take all the time you need to look for lodges and cabins in the Derbyshire Dales, the Peak District and beyond. From Ashford in the Water to Chapel en Le Frith, Derbyshire is a county that sometimes goes overlooked.
