Miles and miles of uninterrupted countryside make the location of this cosy single-storey cottage in the Peak District a big favourite with four-legged friends who enjoy long walks. Sleeping two people in one bedroom and welcoming one large dog or two smaller dogs, this is the perfect accommodation option for solo travellers or couples who yearn to escape from it all and unwind with their furry friends.

Located on a quaint working farm, the property is adjacent to the owner’s farmhouse and overlooks stables and paddocks that are home to some friendly horses and rare breed sheep. This single-floor property has some gorgeous design features, including vaulted ceilings with beautiful exposed beams. The lounge is perfectly cosy, with a wood burner for your canine to curl up in front of. Outside you can while away the early evenings barbecuing on the terrace while the sheep and lambs graze in the neighbouring fields. Dogs should be kept on a lead at all times when out round the farmyard. 

At the National Trust’s White Peak Estate (7 miles), you and your dog can spend some happy hours discovering Ilam Park and Dovedale. Dogs on leads are welcome and there are lots of walking routes that your pup is sure to love. You’ll also find water bowls near the team room. Alternatively, go for walkies at Chatsworth House (24 miles), the home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Dogs on leads are welcome in the garden and park, and doggy drinking stations are available near the toilets, adjacent to the gate that leads to the house and in the stable courtyard.

This is a nice cottage in a very peaceful location with lovely views. The front patio and back garden are both fully enclosed - great for dogs. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped, however we found the living room a little cramped. Great log-burner which was useful as the weather wasn't good, and we also had central heating. The owner was verRead morey friendly and approachable and on-hand should there have been any problems. Hide

I went with my partner and my dog. The cottage was clean and cosy, but had enough room for the large dog crate in the living room. It had an enclosed front and rear garden so that my dog was kept safe and the other animals on the farm wouldn't be bothered! The kitchen was well equipped and everything worked as it should. The location is peaceful anRead mored the only thing that can be heard is the animals. A short drive from scenic dog walks. Hide

Nic + Bern were perfect hosts. Its a lovely secluded area with fantastic views of the manifold valley. Their animals, horses sheep + chickens are all very friendly. All needs catered for in the cottage, we had a lovely time. The two dogs loved it too. (Garden is secure) would definitely recommend .
