About Holidays In Derbyshire With Dogs

The beauty of this area is really hard to resist, and it’s only one reason why Derbyshire is a fantastic holiday destination for dogs and families alike. The county offers a great base for exploring some of England’s most stunning rolling greenery, and more than that, pet friendly holiday spots are opening up more and more.

For families, Derbyshire is a brilliant bolthole for access to the Alton Towers theme park. However, with historic places to visit such as Chatsworth House close by, there’s more than just roller coasters.

Derbyshire holidaymakers tend to head, of course, towards the Peak District National Park. And why wouldn’t they? This stunning slice of English parkland is truly magnificent.

Whether within the Peak District area or beyond, this is an ideal holiday spot for you and your dog. You might want to take a few people along with you to explore the Derbyshire Dales, or even to learn more about the local ‘Plague Village’ scene! In any case, we’ve tried to search for log cabins and holiday lodges in Derbyshire which aren’t just pet friendly, but which are also within easy reach of some of the best walks, countryside views and family days out.

Last Word 

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. There is a great selection of days out and friendly pubs. 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 complete 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!
