Pet-Friendly Peak District: Cottage and Walks

Peak District

Views of the Peak District

The Peak District is a gorgeous area of northern England, often used in filming movies such as Pride and Prejudice and The Princess Bride.  We loved our two week stay in this emerald green part of the country and found it very pet-friendly, as well.

We stayed in the charming Hayloft Cottage near Bakewell, which was a comfortable and well-equipped small cottage, with an open floor plan, new furnishings, a spacious kitchen, excellent underfloor heating (perfect for chilly nights), and fast WiFi.

Best of all, Chewy and Abby loved running and playing in the huge green (and sometimes snowy white) yard with views onto the Peak District.

The Monsal Trail is an old railway that has been converted into an 8.5 mile walking and biking path.  It is mostly paved and flat, making it the perfect place for children and not-too-surefooted dogs to roam.

Arbor Low is one of those places that you would never find unless you went looking for it.  Like Stonehenge, Arbor Low is a Neolithic henge monument built sometime around 4000 BC.  Most of the huge and heavy stones are lying in the rough circle where they fell but the ditch and bank that defines all henges is clearly visible.

Today, Arbor Low is privately owned property and we walked through a farm, carefully avoiding horse and sheep manure, to reach the "Stonehenge of the North."  We were the only tourists and Chewy and Abby had a blast climbing up, down, and around the ditch and bank and stones.  We tried to explain the significance of Arbor Low but they weren't particularly impressed!

Walks and Pubs

 In the Peak District, everyone expects that you will be walking through the green --- sometimes muddy, sometimes sloshy --- areas with your dog.  Dogs, and even muddy dogs, are welcome in most pubs.  We stopped in at The Rose & Crown in Brailsford after a walk on an overcast day and had an excellent Welsh rarebit and Ploughman's lunch with Chewy and Abby under our feet.

If you want to find dog-friendly pubs, head over to the excellent Doggie Pubs website --- one of our favorite pet-friendly resources in England.

People want to find the prefect place to stay while they are in vacation, no matter if they have dogs, children or they are single. The bathroom sometimes is neglected and the hotel managers should take care of this aspect as well. At home, a person can decorate his bathroom with different items or quality glass for showers, but in a hotel he can not do nothing about this issue.

Who wouldn't like to stay in a cottage like this for two weeks? It has everything you need to make your vacation perfect. Vacation homes and cottages must be equipped with air purification systems, to ensure a proper indoor environment. They are very useful, not only during cold months, but also in summer.

Aside from the breathtaking landscapes, the cottage looks very cozy and well equipped to accommodate even the most demanding tourists. For regions with touristic potential, these log cabins for sale in Crystal Lake Illinois are a good investment, that will pay off in the end with attracting even more tourists. Who doesn't like log cabins?

Rolex Rolex gold watch, compared with ordinary materials, gold watches are often expensive, but the replica rolex gold watch has the role of swiss replica watches hedging, so that it often becomes the first choice for collectors. The gold watch has value in the world, largely because the omega replica watch brand launched a commemorative limited edition watch or a replica hublot complex movement process or artistic attainments deep watches, mostly preferred gold precious metals such material. These watches tend to have a strong hedging function, therefore, Rolex Rolex gold watch reputation.
