Your dog will love a cottage holiday in the Lake District
Holidays in the Lake District are about getting out walking, climbing and exploring. From England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, to its largest lake, Windermere, there is a lot of gorgeous countryside to explore with your pup. Whether you have four legs or not, the variety of walks will keep those legs busy. If a casual walk along the pavement is more your style, the towns and villages of the Lake District offer shopping, food, crafts and other delights in gorgeous stone buildings. Luckily many of these establishments welcoming pets, so you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon together.
Dog-friendly things to do
Because the Lake District attracts such an outdoorsy crowd, pets are welcome in many pubs, restaurants and other locations. Fancy a cruise on Lake Windermere, a trip to a castle in Ravenglass, or a steam train ride on the Lakeside Railway? Dogs (on leads!) are welcome, free of charge. If your pooch loves a walk and a long old sniff along the hedgerows, or a splash about in a lake, you can do these afterwards on your way back to your cosy cottage.
