The Shavings

Peak District
Sleeps 2

The Shavings is a cosy studio apartment in a superb location on the edge of the Peak District National Park. It's set on the ground floor of an old stone barn just a couple of miles from Buxton. This is a great holiday apartment for two people and one well behaved dog, with plenty of walks and cycle trails to explore right on your doorstep.
There are shops and pubs in Buxton, as well as lots to see and do, including the bubbling waters of the thermal springs and some magnificent buildings, like the semi-circular Crescent, the Victorian splendour of the Pavilion Gardens and the Opera House.

The Shavings has one studio room with a double bed, a fitted kitchen area with a breakfast bar and a sitting area with a cosy fire. Guests have the shared use of a laundry room and an outdoor sitting area with furniture.

The Opera House hosts an annual Festival of Music and Arts with a full programme of events and performances. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Castleton Caverns and the Monsal Trail that takes you through former railway tunnels are all worth visiting while you're near Buxton - and you can sample tasters of Peak District beers at the Buxton Brewery.

Pet Friendly Days Out in Peak District
Nine Ladies Stone Circle
Nine Ladies Stone Circle in Derbyshire is a complete early bronze age stone circle, forming part of a complex of prehistoric circles on Stanton Moor. You can enjoy stunning views from the site and easy access to several walking paths. Dogs on leads are welcome. Contact site for any restrictions.
Peveril Castle
Peveril Castle is a fantastic English heritage site, perched on cliff tops above the pretty village of Castleton. Dogs love exploring this site and there are several fantastic walks nearby including the very scenic Cavedale Route which is very popular with nature lovers and photographers. Dogs must be kept on leads at the castle. Restrictions may apply in some areas.
Treasure Trails
Treasure trails Leicestershire and Rutland have been created to offer fun for the whole family and many bring their dogs along too. These self guided walking tours are between one and three miles and are themed. You can enjoy treasure hunt, murder mystery and spy mission walks, many of which pass through parks, gardens and woodland areas, so plenty of places for your dog to run around. Some cafes and pubs along the way have water bowls for dogs but we recommend taking some water with you just in case. Please not that dogs may need to be on leads at some points during the walk.
