Dog Friendly Lake District Cottages
All of our dog friendly Lake District cottages allow at least one dog, except Stables 2 Cottage.
Experience the beauty of the Lake District with your dog from one of our dog friendly Lake District cottages. We’re so dog friendly that there is no additional charge to bring one dog.
The Lake District was awarded “Best Great Outdoors Destination” in The Kennel Club’s ‘Be Dog Friendly’ awards two years in a row (2014 and 2015), whilst Keswick was hailed as the most “dog friendly town in Britain”. It’s no surprise that we were in the running to become the 2017 winners of Dog Friendly Hotel / Places to Stay.

The Lake District is sure to be a welcome 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.
There are attractive, spacious grounds around the 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”. Dogs are allowed, but more than that- dogs are welcome in our Cottages for two! If you’re looking for luxury lake district cottages that our dog friendly then you’ve found the right place.
*Tip* 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 luxury 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 in the cottages, and are not left unattended in the cottages or grounds.
