Dog Friendly Lake District Cottages

February 1, 2017 by Wayne

Choose from six dog friendly Lake District cottages that welcome at least one dog🐾🐾

Rove into the stunning Lake District with your dog from one of our dog friendly Lake District cottages. Our self-catering accommodation is so dog friendly that one furry friend comes for free!.

The Kennel Club’s ‘Be Dog Friendly’ has regularly awarded the Lake District with “Best Great Outdoors Destination”, whilst nearby Keswick was hailed as the most “dog friendly town in Britain”. It’s no surprise that we were in the running to become the 2018 winners of Dog Friendly Hotel / Places to Stay.

It’s easy to check available dates and rates and book online. Or find out more about one of our dog friendly cottages by clicking on one of the Lake District cottage links at the foot of the page or here for the full availability calendars. You’re very welcome to call too- 01697 321439

The Lake District is sure to be a welcome rejuvenating holiday for you and your dog, with our fantastic luxury 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. Indeed, there are plenty of walks in the valleys, around the lakes and even up fell or two.

Dog friendly walks all year round

The dogs just love the freedom on the Solway Firth near Allonby.


Enjoy the attractive, spacious grounds around the stream and cottages that you and your dog are free to use. Added to this, some fantastic paths lead straight from your dog friendly cottage door. One such walk will take 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, or get up to nearby Tallentire Hill and you can see the North 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 (featured in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide 2018) is another local, popular with our guests and a CAMRA award winner for “Best Pub West Cumbria”.

Walk from your holiday cottage to our local pubs, do a full circuit through pastures and woodland straight from your cottage door. If you’re looking for luxury break with a true canine welcome, then our dog friendly lake district cottages are just right place for you.

🐾 Coming back from a glorious walk 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! Also, a very welcome drink on a hot day.

All our romantic cottages, apart from Stables 2 accept 1 well behaved dog at no extra cost. If you would like to bring a second dog, please give us a call and we would probably recommend three of the following dog friendly cottages

SALKELD Dog Friendly Lake District Cottage or DYKES Dog Friendly Lake District Cottage or PARLOUR Dog Friendly Lake District Cottage

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

Once you have arrived at one of our holiday cottages for 2 (and dog), you may want to visit some of these dog friendly locations in the Lake District:

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 explore: 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.
