Dog Friendly Peak District Accommodation
This gentle walk for you and your dog takes you on well-made paths around beautiful Ladybower Reservoir, and offers the most magnificent views for only a small amount of effort.
The circular route completes a circuit of one half of Ladybower Reservoir and passes the awe-inspiring Derwent Dam, scene of the practice flights for the famous Dambusters raids during WWII. The accessibility of the route makes it suitable for family-friendly cycling too and those with all-terrain wheelchairs or pushchairs.
Free parking is available along the route, although the walk starts and ends at Fairholmes Visitor Information Centre, operated by the Peak District National Park. If you choose to park there for a small charge, your money goes towards maintaining the facilities and supporting the charity. There are toilets, a café and a gift shop at the Visitor Information Centre. [To see this walk in detail click here]
