The Dog Friendly Lake District

 

The Lake District has a huge choice of walks that you and your dog (or dogs) will love. There’s so much space to run around and a great variety of walks to explore and enjoy.

The wonderful variety of walks include gentle lake side footpaths, sandy beaches on the Cumbrian coast & Morecambe Bay, rivers, streams (or becks as we call them!) and literally thousands of footpaths that criss cross the valleys, fells, mountains, woods and forests. Both you and your dog (or dogs) will be able to enjoy a wonderful holiday together, day & night!

We allow up to 2 dogs to be booked to stay in our holiday cottages at the time of booking. We charge £20 for 1 dog or £30 for 2 dogs. This charge goes towards extra cleaning with a specialist pet hair removing Miele hoover so that non dog owners can rest assured that they will not see or smell any  evidence that a pet or dog has stayed in 1 of our self-catering cottages.

Following a few ‘unfortunate’ events, we will no longer allow more than 2 dogs to stay in our cottages. This isn’t a decision I’ve taken lightly, but the actions of the careless few has tarnished the situation for the rest of us responsible dog owners. We want to keep our cottages in top condition so that all guests wouldn’t know a dog has stayed in the cottage.

Our holiday cottages are some of the best dog friendly cottages in the Lake District that you will find. There’s nothing worse than staying in a cottage that smells of other people’s dogs and we pride ourselves that this will not be something that you will experience when staying in our cottages.

We send all dog owners our ‘pets welcome’ info sheet. This contains a few simple requests like keeping your dog off the furniture and also includes a couple of our favourite walks from the doorstep.

The Lake District is full of wonderful pubs & cafes and most of these are pet friendly and child friendly too! – there’s a warm welcome for everyone!

Book 1 of our luxury dog friendly cottages in the Lake District and you & your dog can have the holiday of a lifetime!

What a lovely cottage in an amazing part of the world. The cottage had everything we needed.

The village of Cark is very friendly for both children and dogs. There is a lovely safe walk to Cartmel which was enjoyed by all of us. Will defo return 🤗 – Sara, Burnley

“Lovely comfortable Cottage!!”

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely comfortable cottage. Cottage is pet friendly too and our pet dog “George” really enjoyed his stay and was very relaxed staying in the cottage.

We loved the whole layout and it was so well equipped. Spotless bed linen and towels also.The real log fireplace was really cosy to light on an evening after enjoyable long /short walks.

We really enjoyed looking up at the star filled sky on a clear night from the cottage garden. It’s in such a lovely peaceful place. It’s in a great location too. Lovely friendly pub “The Engine Inn” is less than 2 minutes walk away. Handy grocery shop/general store “Londis” is also less than 2 minutes away.

Simon has thought of everything and his recommended walks written in the guest book were a great help.

We will highly recommend staying in your cottages to family/friends/colleagues. Thank you!! – Liza

Cartmel Hill Reviews

“Amazing house!”

We can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed Cartmel Hill.

The house is beautiful, even nicer than expected, so spacious. Lots of room for our group of 7, so nice to have so many bathrooms and living space to spread out when we wanted.

The summer house is awesome, what a wonderful place to have a glass of wine and play some games at night.

Cartmel village is wonderful, so many friendly people and great shops and restaurants.

We loved taking the public footpaths through the forest to get to the village. Also enjoyed exploring the footpaths up the hill from the house – what views!!

Simon is a great host, house was easy to find thanks to his directions. We hope to come back to Cartmel one day and wouldn’t hesitate to book Cartmel Hill again. Thanks Simon! – Gillian Pettersen – Prince George, British Columbia, Canada
