Dogs at The Tawny

Dogs are welcome at The Tawny

Dog's are part of the family and whether you are loooking for a family staycation, seeking solitude or planning a romantic break, you don't need to worry about leaving yours at home. In fact, The Tawny is a perfect place for owners and dogs alike, with acres of accessible terrain waiting to be explored.

Meandering Pathways

Stroll through the incredible gardens of The Tawny with your furry friend, exploring diverse terrains from wooded hilltops to lakeside lowlands. Explore over 5 miles of meandering pathways around the 70 acres of lakes, woodlands and follies located on the grounds of The Tawny.

Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times to protect the incredible wildlife that lives in the gardens.

Dog Friendly Stays

After a long walk through the enchanting gardens, you and your beloved furry friend can cosy up in front of the log burning fire in one of our selected dog-friendly Shepherds Huts, or sit out on the deck and watch the birds swoop by, in one of our dog-friendly Treehouses. 

Exploring the Area

Traverse the trails of the neighboring Peak District together. With stunning rock formations, rolling hills, peaceful pools and hidden valleys, there's a whole lot of adventure waiting in this world-famous area.

Just a short step from The Tawny, you and your lucky dog can explore the nearby nature reserve, stroll along the winding canals or investigate the Churnet Valley.

Just a few miles from The Tawny is the dog-loving market town of Leek, home to an array of dog friendly shops, cafe's, craft bars and pubs.

The Feather Lounge

There's no need to abandon your pooch when you are ready to enjoy the laid back atmosphere, delicious drinks and delectable treats on offer at The Feather Lounge.

The Feather Lounge is located in The Plumicorn at the tip of our largest lake and well-behaved dog's are welcome to accompany you as you relax, with a well deserved drink (or two), after a long day of excitement and exploration.
