Pet Policy

Uppermoor Farm – dog friendly cottages, Peak District

We love dogs, we really do. In fact, we have two here on the farm and they are our pride and joy.

However, as dog friendly as we are, it’s our goal to provide the most luxurious home away from home for you as we possibly can, and we endeavour to keep our standards as high as humanly possible. This means we need to keep everything spic and span, which includes avoiding unwanted paw prints on furniture!

Based on this, we want the experience of Uppermoor Farm to be the best it can. We believe wherever possible, your dog should remain at home, with loved ones, so you needn’t worry about whether your dog is going to behave, whether he will be trodden on by passing sheep, or how you will leave him whilst you go out for that amazing celebratory meal. Most people who have brought their dogs with them on holiday have said next time, they will leave him/her at home.

So as much as we love our canine friends, well behaved dogs are permitted in the properties, only in adherence to our terms and conditions as outlined below:
