Peak District with Kids and Dog.

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

We are stopping for a few nights on a CL in the South of the Peaks. I've never been here before so am looking for anything interesting to do with the kids and dog.

Any recommendations please.

A specific area or town might be helpful, the South Peaks covers a few square miles.

Where do I start ?

 

How old are the kids ?     When are you going ?   Where exactly are you staying ?

 

Walking : Dovedale, Manifold Valley, Monsal Trail , Lathkill Dale

Biking : Monsal Trail, Tissington Trail, High Peak Trail

Wet days : Gullivers Kingdom Matlock, Crich Tramway Museum, National Trust : Hardwick Hall, Kedleston, Sudbury Hall (Museum of Childhood)

Heights of Abraham, Matlock - cable car, caves, playgrounds

Google  "Well Dressings"

Kids will probably find the caves at Casleton interesting, also very good walks at Ringinlow just outside Hathersidge.

Derwent dams may be worth a visist.

unless I'm getting confused  I think there is a museum  at Derwent water about the dam busters.  Opening times may be an issue so do do some research

Looks good and dog friendly which is a huge bonus
