Dog Friendly Derbyshire

Dog-Friendly Days out in Derbyshire

We have a range of pet-friendly properties across Derbyshire and the Peak District, should you wish to bring your dog along with you on holiday. Our dog-friendly page has lots of dog walking recommendations, but here you will find a list of some of our favourite pup-perfect attractions and activities in this beautiful part of the country. 

Treak Cliff Caverns

This network of caves, famous for its rare Blue John stone, is one of the Peak District’s most famous landmarks and is 100% dog-friendly! Bring your furry friend along through these amazing caverns, full of fascinating formations and enjoy the experience together. All dogs must be kept on leads.

This charming historical attraction in Matlock is the perfect day out for all the family, including those with four legs. With an array of vintage working trams for you to hop on and off, a lovely tearoom and a recreated period street that takes you back in time, Crich Tramway Village is ideal for those who are into their history.

Looking down over cable cars and the landscape

Heights of Abraham Cable Cars

Not one for the faint of heart, but perfect for those who love a great view, the Heights of Abraham Cable Cars is a truly magical way to take in the panoramic scenes of the Derwent Valley. Dogs are allowed in the cable car with you, as well as in the site’s other attractions, which include another great viewing point, Victoria Prospect Tower.
