1. The Peacock at Rowsley

Situated in Rowsley, a quaint village on the outskirts of the Peak District, The Peacock is an elegantly renovated 17th-century manor.

This hotel encapsulates luxury with an essence of homely comfort. Dogs are warmly welcomed here so you can share a room with your best friend, and the hotel will even provide dog food and water bowls.

With vast, lush meadows to explore nearby and the River Derwent flowing close, this is a paradise for your furry friends.

This boutique hotel is also renowned for its award-winning restaurant, making it a delightful culinary destination. Still, it’s worth noting that while dogs are very welcome in this hotel, they aren’t permitted in the restaurant, lounge, or bar. They can, however, have plenty of fun in the garden!

It’s just £30 per dog, per night to have your pooch stay at the Peacock with you.

2. The Cavendish Hotel, Baslow

The Cavendish Hotel, located in Baslow, offers a luxurious, pet-friendly retreat.

What we love about this hotel is that your dog will receive a warm welcome and some tasty treats on arrival, as well as a comfortable bed. You can even upgrade to a four-poster for your companion.

Your dog is sure to love exploring the vast expanse of the Chatsworth Estate with you, which is just a stone’s throw away.

The Cavendish beautifully combines a traditional aesthetic with modern comfort, offering stunning views of the Derbyshire landscape.

Each one of the 23 rooms is decorated quite uniquely, mirroring the hotel’s historic charm while ensuring contemporary comfort.

Taking your doggie to this hotel with you will cost you £15 per night. If your dog has a more expensive taste, and you opt for the four-poster dog bed, this will set you back £35 per night.

3. Losehill House Hotel & Spa

If your vacation calls for relaxation and rejuvenation, Losehill House Hotel & Spa is the place to be.

Nestled amidst breathtaking landscapes, you can enjoy a touch of luxury without having to leave your pooch at home.

The hotel boasts dog-friendly rooms – although these are subject to availability.

Once again, dogs are only allowed in allocated areas, such as your room and the grounds, but they can’t be taken into public spots in the hotel.

4. Biggin Hall Country House Hotel

Biggin Hall, an historical Country House Hotel situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park, offers an inviting retreat for you and your furry friend.

The hotel’s unique charm comes from its blend of rustic original features and comfortable modern facilities, ensuring a memorable stay for you and your pet.

This 17th-century hotel is set on 8 acres of beautiful gardens and fields, making it perfect for dog walks. Well-behaved doggos are welcome in the ground-floor bedrooms and in the snug lounge, but not in the restaurant or other public rooms.

Located in the quaint village of Biggin-by-Hartington, this hotel has several nearby walking routes, such as the Tissington Trail and the Limestone Way – this is a great option if you and your pooch are looking for a holiday where you can really explore.

Each room is individually furnished, creating a unique, cozy atmosphere. With a restaurant that serves locally sourced and seasonal dishes, your culinary needs will be well catered for, while your pet enjoys the comfort and hospitality offered by the hotel staff.

5. Dog And Partridge Country Inn

The Dog and Partridge Country Inn in Swinscoe is a quintessentially British country retreat.

It offers cosy rooms with open fires, making it an inviting place for a relaxing break with your pet.

This hotel offers special dog-friendly rooms for you and your pooch – just mention it when you book.

What we love about this hotel is that dogs are welcome in the bar, so you can choose to eat your meals there so that you can keep your four-legged friend with you, rather than leaving them in your room.

What’s more, if you are heading out in the day without your pooch, the staff can walk your dog for you too.

There is an array of picturesque walks nearby so you and your dog can explore and stretch your legs.

6. The Izaak Walton Hotel

Nestled amidst the verdant Dovedale Valley, The Izaak Walton Hotel allows dogs in the Courtyard bedrooms which have direct access to outside.

Your pooch is also welcome at the rear of the Dovedale Bar. Car parking spaces are conveniently located next to the rooms.

The surrounding trails and paths provide ample opportunities for your dog to exercise and explore.

Taking your dog to the Izaak Walton with you will cost £30.00 per dog, per night.

7. The George Hotel

Finally, we have The George Hotel, situated in Hathersage, which offers a fusion of modern luxury and traditional charm.

Well-behaved doggies are welcomed with open arms and can even join you in the bar, where some puppy dog eyes are sure to win them a treat from the staff!

Its close proximity to popular walks such as Stanage Edge and the Hope Valley makes it an excellent base for outdoor enthusiasts and their four-legged friends.
