One of the Great Inns of Britain, the Peacock at Rowsley is an upscale country house hotel 1.8 miles from Haddon Hall, 3.8 miles from Chatsworth House Bakewell and 5 miles from Matlock.
Originally a manor house, The Peacock at Rowsley is now a grade 2 listed boutique hotel located right in the heart of the Peak District National Park and makes a great base for exploring the region with your four-legged friend.
The hotel is part of the Haddon Estate and enjoys close links with Haddon Hall where The Peacock owners Lord and Lady Edward Manners currently reside.
The Peacock at Rowsley has fifteen bedrooms, from cosy single rooms to bedrooms with four poster beds and one of the best hotel suites in the region. Each room has been individually styled and features antique furnishings, comfortable beds and luxury fabrics.
All 15 rooms are dog friendly and there are no restrictions on number of dogs that can stay or on size of dog you want to bring. A charge of £10 per dog per night applies. Your beloved pooch will even receive a bedtime bone which I am sure will be welcome after time spent exploring all the Peak District has to offer.
Dogs are only allowed in the rooms and gardens at the Peacock at Rowsley but in nearby Bakewell there are many dog friendly pubs including The Castle which you can read about – Zuki’s friend Eddie posted review in our Dog Blog.
There are many walks for you and your canine companion to enjoy – you can follow the Monsal Trail or visit Monsal Head and walk down into Monsal Dale. Your dog will enjoy running free in Monsal Dale. You can enjoy a drink or a meal in The Stables Bar, back up at Monsal Head, when you’ve both tired from all the fresh air and exercise.
Another attraction in the area reviewed on Zuki’s Dog Blog is the Crich Tramway Museum where dogs are welcome to enjoy a ride on a tram.
She has also reviewed the dog friendly grounds of the Chatsworth Estate and the dog friendly Devonshire Arms Beeley where you can enjoy a meal of local produce.
After all your adventures return to The Peacock and retire to your luxurious room where your beloved pooch will be all too pleased to enjoy that bedtime bone.
