Immerse yourself in nature.

Dogs are always welcome at Crewe Hall Hotel, and we’ve taken some of the stress out of planning activities with a furry friend in tow. Take a look below at the walks you can go on, by yourself or with man’s best friend.


25 minute drive 

A special day out.

Take a stroll amongst the trees.   

Enjoy a peaceful walk through some of the oldest trees in Britain. This walk is two hours long but with relatively flat ground it’ll feel like no time at all. Dunham Massey is also home to around 150 fallow deer – maybe you’ll be lucky enough to spot some.   

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on short leads.

Head into the Peak District for this stunning view.  

Three Shires Head is where Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire all converge into one beautiful location. This walk is a bit longer at 4 hours, but well worth the effort. Take in the waterfalls and pools of the River Dane, and if it’s warm enough you can even go for a dip. Dogs are welcome.
