Out in Bakewell, you’ll have the chance to explore this truly gorgeous stately home and parkland spot. Within the Peak District, Chatsworth offers dog lovers and their pets access to extensive park grounds that stretch all the way across 1,000 glorious acres.
While dogs aren’t permitted to explore the house itself, they are allowed to stroll the gardens with you. It’s a good job, too – as the river walks here up by the Derwent are some of the most breath-taking. Chatsworth is one of those lovely locations in the Heart that combines history, heritage, beautiful scenery and wonderful walks all in one. It’s a brilliant day out.
The Peak District itself, of course, is a fantastic hotspot for dog lovers.

It’s the jewel of the north, some say – and there are no reasons to leave your pets at home.
Head out here and explore the stunning valleys, dips and hills – it’s a memorable day out that will always be right on your doorstep. Find a holiday spot and go stretch your legs.
The spectacular Malvern Hills make up an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or AONB, in the Heart of England. It’s an immensely popular expanse of greenery, woodland, plains and cycle trails. What’s more, it’s extremely popular for its horse riding. More so, you should take a look across the hills with a dog in tow – it’s eight miles of pure, protected greenery.

Heading towards Northamptonshire, Salcey Forest remains a very popular dog walking spot for locals and holidaymakers in the region, and for good reason. It’s a woodland run that’s stood virtually unspoilt for centuries, and it backs into all kinds of different named trails and walks that you’re going to want to remember for time to come.
It’s a great family friendly day out, too, as there are play park facilities close by. However, you’re going to want to treat your pets first and foremost – there’s no forestry quite like the walks you’ll find up in Salcey.
Dovedale is less a beauty spot, more a beauty leviathan – it’s truly huge! Part of the always-impressive Peak District, this impressive three mile landmark is perhaps more famous for its variety of large, natural stepping stones. It’s also a great place to walks the dogs around the River Dove.
This area is also well-known for its local limestone, and there may be no better place to spot this than up on the River Dove itself, where you can spy the famous hill, the Thorpe Cloud. Dovedale is a slice of unspoilt country paradise right in the heart of England – and is memorable for all the right reasons.
Irchester Country Park is an extremely popular family fun zone up in Northamptonshire. It is perhaps best known for its adventure park appeal and its variety of courses and play zones, but you’ll also want to show your pets around the stunning woodland areas that surround the park.
In fact, Irchester plays host to a wooded perimeter of at least 200 acres! That’s plenty of forestry and thickets for you and your dogs to explore at your leisure. Take the kids along and they’ll be sure to love the trails and ziplines available at the park’s adventure centre.
