The Lake District for dogs

Recently mummy went to The Lake District (without us, how dare she!) but she found out how lovely it is and how perfect it is for dogs. So she’s written this post for us, so here’s what makes The Lake District perfect for dogs!

  1. Accommodation – There are loads of dog-friendly accommodation options available in the Lakes. Numerous hotels, cottages and B&Bs allow dogs in bedrooms with you.
    Where to stay? Lodore Falls Hotel in Derwentwater offers dog friendly accommodation from just £95 per person.
  2. Walks – It’s pretty beautiful up in the Lakes and with a lot of fells to walk, there are loads of places you can see the sights and walk the dog all at the same time.
    Where to walk? For beginners Orrest Head Fell is a gorgeous walk (see photo!). Although a little muddy after a little rain, the view all but makes up for it when you get to the top.
  3. Eateries – Like the accommodation, loads of cafes in the towns welcome dogs and muddy boots, so stopping for lunch while out on a day trip is not an issue when you’re with your four-legged friends.
    Where to Eat? Lucys in Ambleside welcomes, muddy boots, children and dogs and offer a delicious menu for day and night.
  4. Activities – Although some attractions still ban dogs from entering there are a few outdoor activities you can do with the pooch in tow.
    What to do? Take a lake tour with Windermere Lake Cruises. Well-behaved dogs travel free and will love the cruise across the lake.

These are just some of the things pooches can do in the Lakes, but mummy said she’s never seen anywhere in the UK so dog friendly before. Mummy’s going to get us more used to the car so she can take us next time. It’s only a 6 hour drive – we should be fine!
