Dog Friendly Lake District Cottages

February 1, 2017 by Wayne

Lake District cottages that are truly Dog Friendly.
All our Dog Friendly Lake District Cottages carry no extra charge for one dog.

The Lake District is sure to be welcome holiday for you and your dog, with our fantastic Lake District Dog Friendly Cottages! We are dog lovers ourselves, so Dasher (our Labradinger) and Binsey (our boxer), both seen on this page, always come with us on our self catering adventures. We know just how important it is to find the right place so that you can all (dog included) enjoy the holiday, cottage and walks in a beautiful Lake District. Some of our long term regular guests might even recognise Lennox- our big faithful Boxer who moved here with us all those years ago now and just loved getting out on the fells!

We have attractive, spacious grounds that you and your dog are free to use. Added to this, there are some fantastic routes straight from your dog friendly cottage door. One such walk takes you through open fields overlooking the Ellen Vale. On a clear day you can see the Scottish hills on the opposite side of the Solway Firth. Get up to nearby Tallentire Hill, you can see the North and Western Cumbrian mountains too. Take your dog and wander freely through beautiful woods, pass over a cascading beck and you could even stop off for some rewarding refreshment at either of our local pubs. Both excellent pubs are dog friendly before 6; the Mason Arms allows dogs all evening. The Bar’n’Bistro is another local, popular with our guests and a CAMRA award winner for “Best Pub West Cumbria”.

Tip- For “Lake District Dog Friendly” information and supplies, we recommend this shop- “Podgy Paws” in Keswick, perfect for dog owners-
Lake District Dog Friendly Pet Shop

Keswick, along with Cockermouth have many dog friendly cafes and pubs and are well worth a visit for their shops and visitor attractions. If you would like some more ideas for walkies, be it long or short, or wet weather alternatives, just ask us during your stay.

The Solway Coast is just a 10 minute drive away and is dog friendly all year round. Enjoying a massive expanse of beach for all to eexplore, fantastic views across the water to Dumfries and Galloway, stunning sunsets and of course the fells are not far. There are literally hundred of walks to suit all sorts of abilities and preferences. Our dog friendly Lake District cottages are cleaned to the highest standards; we use the latest cleaning technology to ensure that this is just so.

Dog Friendly Lake District Cottages

** If you come back with more than just the odd muddy paw, don’t forget the stream that runs through the cottage grounds- it’s a perfect dog wash!

All our cottages, except Stables 2, accept 1 well behaved dog at no extra cost by prior arrangement. If you would like to bring a second dog it will be at our discretion and we would probably recommend three of the following dog friendly cottages


We ask that owners do not allow their dogs on the beds or furniture, and are not left unattended in the cottages or grounds.

Not just people friendly but dog friendly, now that’s a perfect getaway for any dog friendly couple.
