Want to take your dog with you on a walking break in the hills? Here’s our favourite dog-friendly hotels in the Peak District that will welcome you, and your canine friend, with open arms

Losehill House Hotel & SpaLosehill House Hotel & Spa

Losehill House Hotel & Spa, Hope

Situated down a quiet leafy lane in the heart of the Peak District National Park, Losehill has stunning views and amazing dog walks on the doorstep. This secluded four star hotel and spa will be a luxurious home from home for both you and your canine friend. The hotel allows dogs in two rooms, one of which is a small family suite, and charge £20 per dog. Other facilities include a fully equipped spa, hot tub, indoor swimming pool, beautiful surroundings… You won’t want to leave.


Rutland Arms Hotel, Bakewell

Local legend has it that Jane Austen stayed here whilst writing Pride and Prejudice but the jury is out on whether she brought a dog! If it was today she would find herself and her dog (for which they charge £15) welcome in one of the courtyard rooms. From here it is easy to explore the peaks and surrounding area.


Biggin Hall Country House HotelBiggin Hall Country House Hotel

Biggin Hall Country House Hotel, Biggin By Hartington

Dogs are welcome and stay free of charge at this 17th century manor house hotel, which sits in eight acres of land in the centre of the Peak District. Filled with character and charm, visitors (the human kind) have a choice of two sitting rooms, one with a library, the other with a large traditional open fireplace, and there is a separate dining room; perfect territory to while away the hours after a day pounding the hills.


The Maynard Hotel, Grindleford

Just a short drive away from the centre of Sheffield, situated close to Bakewell and Buxton, and on the doorstep of the beautiful Padley Gorge, is this privately owned, dog friendly, boutique hotel. Dogs are welcome in selected bedrooms, and the bar, and are charged just £5. Well behaved canines may even find tasty dog biscuits coming their way…human visitors can also expect to eat well as the hotel’s restaurant has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes.


Callow HallCallow Hall

Callow Hall, Dovedale

Situated near the old market town of Ashbourne on the edge of the Peak District and surrounded by 35 acres of private garden, this ivy-clad Victorian hotel has two rooms they allow dogs in and charges £25 a dog. And you don’t have to venture very far to find a walker’s paradise as the picturesque Dove Valley is on its doorstep.


The Izaak Walton Hotel, Ashbourne

Situated near the villages of Thorpe, Ilam & Tissington, this country house hotel, which dates back to the 17th century, enjoys stunning views over the valley of Dovedale to Thorpe Cloud. Dogs are welcome in the courtyard rooms, which have direct outside access, at a charge of £10 per night. Other facilities include the award winning Haddon Restaurant and fishing rights on the River Dove.

The Old Hall Hotel, The Square, Buxton

If you are planning to spend a few days in Buxton you could do no better than making the Old Hall Hotel as your base. Well behaved dogs are welcome in most bedrooms and there is no charge. Reputed to be the oldest hotel in England, it is thought Mary Queen of Scots stayed here when she was under house arrest from Elizabeth I.
