Derbyshire Dog Walks – Monsal Dale

A little disclaimer before we start. Everyone’s first priority right now (and always) is to STAY SAFE. Practice social distancing and self isolate where required. In this post I am simply remembering a favourite walk that we have done on previous visits to Derbyshire. We all, of course, have our favourite locations when taking theContinue reading “Derbyshire Dog Walks – Monsal Dale”

What I’ve Learnt From Walking Holidays

Pack that backpack. Humans and dogs alike need supplies over the course of the day, especially on walking holidays. If it is warm or a cool day we end up carrying drinks such as a flask of tea, a cold drink and water for Mia. This can get very heavy so I tend to carryContinue reading “What I’ve Learnt From Walking Holidays”

Walks in Derbyshire – Chee Dale

I love a walk in Derbyshire and the Chee Dale route has to be one of my top 5. It links to Monsal Trail and went walking this route we did go up to the trail for an ice cream. We soon headed back down to the path though as the Chee Dale walk wasContinue reading “Walks in Derbyshire – Chee Dale”

How We Choose A Dog Friendly Stay

I am starting to strongly believe that there are millions of hotels, b&b’s, youth hostels and airbnb’s in the UK alone, no, billions even. So how do you pick where to stay? What to see?

Dog Holidays – Accommodation

We have had our chocolate Labrador Mia for nearly 5 years, she’ll turn 5 years old in July and we were able to bring her home in September, coincidentally on my birthday. Side note: I picked up a new car the year after so Mr LB had a lot to live up to after that!Continue reading “Dog Holidays – Accommodation”

A Dog Friendly Weekend in the Cotswolds

For the last two years we’ve been able to go away with friends and their cockapoo pooch. Last year we stayed in the Lake District in a yurt and this year we decided to treat ourselves a little more and go with a hotel. I was set on the destination of the Cotswolds as itContinue reading “A Dog Friendly Weekend in the Cotswolds”

Where to? Clumber Park

We have visited Clumber Park many times over the years whether on our own, with family or taking the dog a walk. We have hired bikes and taken a ride through the woods before and strolled around the lake with friends after a bacon cob at the cafe. Mr LB has also even taken partContinue reading “Where to?

Why I love my National Trust Membership

Both myself and my husband have been National Trust members for about 5 years now and as the saying goes, “I havent been everywhere but it’s on my list”. National Trust membership to us is no different than that, we would love to visit every destination and will hopefully get the opportunity. One thing aboutContinue reading “Why I love my National Trust Membership”
