Dog Friendly Cottages In Keswick To Rent

Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Keswick

If you’re looking for a dog-friendly holiday destination that’s really got the bow-wow factor, then look no further than Keswick. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Lake District, Keswick has been voted as Britain’s ‘Most Dog-Friendly Town’ by the Kennel Club, for three years on the trot!

The historic market town sits between Derwentwater Lake and a ragged range of towering mountains. In the town you’ll find the cafés and restaurants very accommodating, particularly towards dog owners. We offer a superb range of dog-friendly cottages in Keswick, putting you and your four-legged friend within easy reach of several hound-happy attractions.

For a taste of the Great Outdoors and some serious walkies, hop aboard one of the boats that sail around Derwentwater Lake. With around seven stops on the cruise, curious canines can explore secluded beaches, scent-filled forests and trot along lakeside walkways. While dog owners will have to pay to enjoy the hour-long round-trip, their faithful friends can hop aboard for nothing! You’ll also find launches carrying visitors to the Catbells Mountain and High Brandlehow. This quick trip takes you to some of the Lake District’s most incredible scenery, before you take the return trip back to one of our dog-friendly cottages in Keswick.

Dog-friendly things to do

With picture-perfect woodlands, expansive meadows and the lakes to get to grips with, Keswick is one holiday destination that ought to give you paws for thought! There’s an enormous amount for people and their pooches to get up to, so we’ve put together a list of some of our favourites:

Hope Park

Less than 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Keswick, Hope Park is a woofer’s wonderland. With beautiful gardens, a picnic area and forest walks, it’s the perfect place to take your dog for some good, old-fashioned exploring.

The Dog and Gun

For a sumptuous evening meal or a quiet pint, the aptly-named Dog and Gun is one of the best pubs for those with dogs. In addition to offering an excellent menu for humans, there are treats and water bowls on offer for your canine counterpart.

Podgy Paws

Everyone deserves a little treat, once in a while – including your dog! Set in the centre of Keswick, Podgy Paws is a pet shop with a difference. Your dog can enjoy a refreshing drink at the ‘Dog Bar’ and there are plenty of dog-related items to browse and buy.

Mirehouse and Gardens

A stunning, historic house, the Mirehouse and Gardens offers fun for the whole family. The house itself is simply beautiful and offers live piano music at set times throughout the day. For youngsters, there are some superb play areas set deep within the woods, with the Skill Beck river trickling away nearby. While dogs must be kept on leads, the grounds are expansive and home to a variety of animals, such as cattle, squirrels and deer.
