The Old Piggery is a great choice for a Peak District holiday. Located in the heart of the Peak District National Park, the cottage is only a short drive to Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, and the market towns of Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne. There are a host of Peak District activities to enjoy whilst staying at The Old Piggery – some of which you can read about below.
Many places allow dogs to visit with you. But if you want a day out to somewhere which doesn’t welcome dogs, we have a very reliable dog sitter in the village: contact Fiona/Juliet at Frederick-Lloyd who will be happy to help.
