How lucky we are to live right on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Jessie and Max live just 5 minutes away from the Spectacular Dove Stone Reservoir and Nature reserve. A complete lap of the reservoir is 2.6 miles for a human, but when you are a Cockapoo, running backwards and forwards and exploring every smell, its probably more like 5 miles !!
We come all year round but have to admit that Autumn, Winter and Spring are our favourite times, just because it gets so busy in the summer.
Playing 'Hide and Seek' with a dog never works, they always sniff you out and win !!
There is a peace and tranquility that can be found walking a dog in such a beautiful place. There are also plenty of easy Photo opportunities, that can make anyone look like a reasonable photographer !
Dove Stone is owned by United Utilites and managed by the RSPB. It is a great place to walk dogs and enjoy the wildlife. There is also an active sailing club.
