Dog friendly places for days out in the Lake District

Dog at Stott Park Bobbin Mill

We are seeing more and more people who like to bring their four legged furry friends on holiday with them and we have 4 rooms where dogs (and their well-behaved owners) can stay. However, bringing your dog with you on holiday isn't always as straightforward as just finding dog friendly accommodation, you also need to know that there are places where dogs are welcome for days out.


A Lake District summer walk around Loweswater

Loweswater Walk

The small but perfectly formed Loweswater is a short drive west from The Pheasant Inn but provides a stunning backdrop for one of our favourite walks. This Lake is less visited than some of its more well-known cousins and can often provide a bit of peace and quiet even on a busy summer's day.


Great Gardens to visit in the Lake District

Levens Hall

2016 is the year of the English Garden and the Lake District has no shortage of beautiful gardens to visit. With summer approaching many of the gardens are really blooming into life and now is a great time to explore. From cottage style to gardens to formal estates with world famous plants and topiary there is a great day out to be found. The hardest decision will be deciding which one to visit first.
