Here at Bolehill cottages our pet friendly holiday accommodation welcomes well behaved pets (See charges) of all kinds but especially we welcome dogs. Our dog friendly environment and the beautiful surrounding countryside are everything a dog could need for that home away from home feel.
We are situated in a superb rural location in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales Peak District National Park but only 2 miles from the market town of Bakewell. The cottages are set in extensive grounds of open fields and woodland. Our fields (bounded by traditional Derbyshire dry stone walls) are a peaceful haven for cattle and wildlife and enjoy magnificent views towards Lathkill Dale and open countryside.
Here are just some of the facilities we have for pets:
Bolehill Cottages sit within 200 to 300 acres of Derbyshire Dales Peak District farmland. Our own grounds extend to approximately 25 Acres which include our gardens, 3 fields, an enclosed stone walled paddock area and a number of wooded copses. Pets and their owners are free to roam throughout our grounds and have easy access to the additional 200 to 300 Acres of farmland via stiles or gates. We have also set aside a paddock area (a small field nearest to the cottages) for those early morning and late evening walks although access to our fields is only a few yards away (either through the car park or through the guest garden). Of course there are also a couple of local residents (Blue and Smudge) to play with (See 'the dogs' blog).
Being a rural location we are blessed with pubs that accept dogs in the public bar. Although not many pubs in Bakewell allow dogs most of the local village pubs are dog friendly. In addition one or two of the cafés in Bakewell now allow dogs, as do a few in the villages. Most of the local attractions are happy to allow dogs into the grounds. Chatsworth House welcome dogs into the gardens but not the house.
In addition to our fields we have a public footpath within 200m of our cottages. This footpaths provides relatively easy walks to the villages of Sheldon or Over Haddon both with dog friendly pubs.
Although we welcome all dogs there are a few rules we would ask that you follow:
