The Peak District, similarly to The Lake District and The Cotswolds, is not a county like Yorkshire or Wiltshire but rather an area – one of outstanding natural beauty, too. It describes Peak District National Park, which is so large that it falls into five counties: Derbyshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire, Yorkshire and Greater Manchester. This is why, if you’re looking for “things to do in Yorkshire”, for instance, the same advice will be given as the search “things to do in Cheshire”, which is: take your dogs and enjoy the most mesmerising, scenic views of England in the Peak District.

The type of landscape you can expect from the Peak District include both the limestone valleys like Dovedale and the gritstone ridges and stark moorland plateaus like Kinder Scout. Hardcore walkers will be drawn to Kinder Scout, which is the Peak District National Park’s highest point, while others might be drawn to Pennine Way footpath, located in the town of Edale, which is the southern end of the iconic pathway that leads all the way up until you are just over the Scottish border.

Given that the Peak District covers 555 square miles, it goes without saying that there is plenty of room to walk your dogs, but you aren’t restricted to the great outdoors when you bring the dogs on holiday. You can explore manor houses, gardens and woods, many of which are maintained by the National Trust, which is notoriously accommodating to dogs. For the Austenites out there, Lyme Park, a large National Trust estate located south of Disley, Cheshire, is famously the manor on which Jane Austen based the fictional home of Mr Darcy – Pemberley. It is within a deer park, though, so be sure to keep the dogs on a lead to avoid any dramatics. Stanage Edge is a remarkable gritstone formation which will interest rockclimbers, anyone with a love of views, and especially the Pride and Prejudice fans, as it was an all-too-familiar film location.

If you’re wanting to focus on dog-friendly historical and cultural enrichment as well as outdoor activity and walks, then this district won’t disappoint and is home to wonderful, rural, rustic towns such as Bakewell (yes, of the tart), Eyam, Castleton and Hartington, as well as to the cities of Sheffield, Manchester and Liverpool, to name just a few key.

The district is not all greenery, though, and has flowing through it the River Derwent, the River Bradford, the River Dove, and many more rivers which splash around the district with the same energy that you and your dogs will be once you make the decision to visit.
