The Old Piggery

The Old Piggery is a cottage perfect for two, where dogs are made to feel very welcome. It is located in an elevated position on the edge of the village of Tideswell up a secluded lane with beautiful views across the Peak District countryside.

With great walks on the doorstep the cottage is ideally situated for walkers and those who enjoy the outdoors, yet is only a five minute walk to the centre of Tideswell. It is also within walking distance of a number of dog-friendly pubs which serve food.

The Old Piggery is an ‘upside down’ cottage with the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom downstairs, and a lounge upstairs.  It has wooden and tile floors throughout.  There is a sofa bed in the lounge if required.  We provide dog throws for the sofas and doggie towels for wiping paws after muddy walks.  Fully centrally heated, there is also a wood burner in the lounge for cosy winter nights in. Outside, the garden is fenced and there is off-street parking.

Welcome packs are provided for both humans and dogs – including delicious home made tuna dog treats and “I’m on holiday” dog tags. We genuinely welcome dogs – so there is no extra charge for bringing them with you.  It’s their holiday too!

Tideswell is a great base for a holiday in the Peak District.  Known as the “Cathedral of the Peak”, the village has a range of shops, three cafes, four dog-friendly pubs, and a stunning church.  All the pubs in the village are dog friendly, and there are some great walks in the area.  All the pubs in the village are dog friendly, and there are some great walks in the area.  We are only 15 minutes’ drive from the market towns of Bakewell and Buxton, and the stately homes of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall are a short drive away.  We can recommend a number of reliable dog sitters/walkers in the village if you want to go for a day out without the dogs.

The Old Piggery is operated by Carrie and Paul, who live locally in Tideswell and are on hand to answer any questions you may have during your stay.  They can often be seen being dragged around the village by their three rescue mutts.  They also run Welyarde, a larger holiday cottage in the village which is equally dog friendly.
