You will discover coffee shops, pubs and attractions in and around the Bakewell area, where you and your dog will be welcomed.
We’ve also included information about where you can stay in this part of the Peak District. For example, hotels, campsites, B&B’s and holiday cottages who are all dog friendly. We have provided a list of differing accommodation types to suit all tastes and budgets.
We thought you might like to know about some walks, which include lots of the local beauty spots and features around Bakewell and its surrounding villages. Wherever possible, we suggest dog friendly pubs and refreshment stops en route. You don’t have to follow any of the walks, but it does give you a good indication of places to go that are fun and interesting for your dog.
We have also tried to offer alternative routes on most walks, where we feel that stiles may be particularly awkward perhaps for the older, less mobile dog. In some cases, where there is not an alternative, we have provided a picture of the stile, so that you can see for yourself whether your dog is likely to be able to use it or not. Toilets are indicated, as well as potential refreshment stops and poop bins!
How to use this guide
The first chapter features the market town of Bakewell and is divided into the following sections:
• Where to eat/drink
• Where to stay
• Where to go – attractions and events
• A local walk
The remaining chapters feature other villages close to Bakewell, as well as highlighting some of the popular areas such as the Monsal Trail and Lathkill Dale.
You can use each chapter independently, but you may notice that some of the walks interlink, so you will find that some refreshment stops might be referred to in more than one chapter.
We hope that by reading this guide, yours and your dog’s time in Bakewell and the Peak District will be even more enjoyable
