The Peak District is famous for its fantastic walks and dramatic scenery. Dovedale offers gentle valley walking with lovely views all along the length of the river, whilst for the more serious walker, the Pennine Way starts its long trek north at Edale. The region is also studded with stately homes, historic houses and friendly country pubs, many of which welcome dogs!
